National Trust wraps up week of activities today

THE NATIONAL TRUST is today wrapping up a series of activities in observation of National trust week which is being observed under the theme: “Preserving heritage through education; the responsibility of every generation”.

The Trust said in a release that the events yesterday and today, Friday, October 21 are dedicated to engaging the student population across St.Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG). Students and teachers are expected to visit the headquarters of the National Trust located in the Carnegie Building (old public library), and be given an opportunity to learn about the archaeological collection housed there. However, a special invitation has been extended to the general public to visit the facility today and all entry fees have been waived in recognition of the week of activities.

Visitors will also be treated to the viewing of locally produced items as well as a lunchtime concert, the release states.

The week of activities opened on Sunday, October 16 with a panel discussion which provided the opportunity for the public to be informed about the efforts of the National Trust to preserve both the tangible and intangible heritage of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The Trust said the panel received pledges of support for its work from Vincentians living in the Diaspora.

The week of activities is aimed at providing an opportunity for the public to become more aware of the mandate of the National Trust and the dependence of its management on the public to successfully deliver its services.

During the week of activities and beyond the National Trust said it will also place special emphasis on developing a closer relationship with various government departments.
