MP making merry
First it was Carolling on the Greens, then it was the annual luncheon and finally the children’s get together, but MP for St. James South, Donville Inniss says he is not done yet.
Certainly in the Christmas spirit and determined to spread the joy around, Inniss said the events that started Friday and ran through the weekend were part of his way of showing appreciation for his constituents and others who came to share in the activities.
The carolling event held Friday, including performances from the Royal Barbados Police Force Band, while the luncheon on Sunday, another annual event since 2008, catered to 250 people.
Inniss said it was his habit each year to not just treat the elderly in the constituency, but public servants like postal workers and others who work with those residents.
“Yesterday we then joined with the Ministry of Youth for carol singing and the Christmas children’s get together. We don’t call it a party really, but it is an activity to show appreciation and celebrate with the children,” he said.
About 100 children were at the get together, he said.
But the activities have not ended, he confessed. He will be handing out about 100 hampers “quietly” to some of those who needed a little assistance at this time of year. He said for the dignity of those persons he would keep that event under wraps. (LB)
