“Excellent turn out [and] an enthusiastic crowd. Again the bounding of the community [and] the bringing together of various communities and surrounding districts and corporate Barbados will only augur and rebound to the benefit of the community.

“We had two months of tragic incidents and I believe that this could only uplift the community spirit of St Philip people and their nature as a whole,” Lashley, the member of Parliament for St Philip North told Barbados TODAY following his team’s loss.

    I think your Reporter got her ‘B’ sounds all mixed up.
    “the bounding of the community….” should probably have been
    “the bonding of the communities”; and “augur and rebound to the benefit of the community….”should have been “augur and redound to the benefit of the community”.

    Well spotted, Olutoye, but surely there should have been another line of defence for such errors- the editor!
