Broken Trident hits the town
On the final day of its trek across the parish of St Michael, the commemorative Broken Trident made its way to Norman Centre in Bridgetown today.
And as shoppers took time out to snap a picture or two, sign the accompanying book, or just admire the trident as it rested on its perch at the entrance of the mall, they were treated to entertainment.
Manager of Norman Centre, Debbie Lashley said those who made their way through the mall were exposed to different aspects of the Barbadian way of life as well as images of old Bridgetown.
“We thought it was fitting to pay tribute to the commemorative Broken Trident through honouring our culture and paying homage to our history as well as modern day Barbadiana,” she said.
“Our legacy in Bridgetown is a long one. Norman Centre has been in Bridgetown for 40 years and is considered a permanent and iconic structure in Bridgetown. We feel it is testament to our commitment and our relationship and our history with Bridgetown to have been asked to host the commemorative Broken Trident. And we are truly proud of that,” Lashley continued, adding that it was Norman Centre’s intention to be around for another 50 years.
The trident has been making its way across the country ahead of Barbados celebrating its 50th Anniversary of Independence on November 30.
