Barbados will celebrate the 50th anniversary of its independence from Britain on Nov. 30, 2016. In the Cayman Islands, for well over 50 years, Barbadians have been making a contribution to the development and economy in areas such as education, policing, prison service, banking/finance, the Arts, health services and through various service clubs. Many have invested in property or businesses, thereby adopting the Cayman Islands as well as being adopted by these islands.
Grand Cayman is joining the Barbados celebration with activities throughout the year, including a dinner and ball at the Kimpton Seafire Resort, a church service at St. George’s Anglican Church, a Bajan cultural fair at the Lions Centre and a Bajan Expo.
Executive Chef and Operations Manager of GCG Grand Cayman, Mr. Anthony Franklin, recently handed over a contribution to Honorary Consul Juliette Gooding-Michelin of the Barbadian Consulate for the Cayman Islands. This gesture shows GCG’s support and participation in the celebration of this significant milestone and allows us to continue to make positive contributions to these Islands, while celebrating and sharing our diversity of cultures.
“We are very grateful that these community-minded corporate citizens have responded to our appeal for sponsorship, and hope that their contributions will inspire others, including the Barbadian-owned or managed businesses, to help make this a memorable occasion,” the Honorary Consul said.
