The Barbados King of Letters to the Editor, Mr. Carson Cadogan, has started a blog. One of Carson’s first articles concerns the poor state of the boyhood home of our famous son, Sir Frank Worrell.
An excerpt from the post Sir Frank Worrell…
The Barbados Government estimates that it will spend in the region of $135 million Barbados Dollars on the redevelopment of Kensington Oval, the Mecca of Cricket here in Barbados. This is all taxpayers dollars.
A couple of miles away right next door to the Empire Cricket ground is the dilapidated boyhood home of Sir Frank Worrell. Sir Frank Worrell one the greatest cricketers the world has known. In any country other than Barbados his home would be a shrine for all the world to see. His great skill with the bat was largely responsible for putting Barbados on the Cricket map. Even today long after his death he is still highly regarded in places like England, India and Australia to name a few places.
It is a national disgrace that this house is in this state of disrepair. The Barbados Cricket Association is doing nothing about the situation. Its President can be heard almost daily on the call-in programnes being an expert on everything. However he has not lift a single finger to help in the restoration of this very important home. What a shame!
