‘Welcome to Tobago...stay’
By RICHARDSON DHALAI Saturday, November 28 2009
IN JUST one and a half hours, His Royal Highness, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, was told about conservation efforts at Buccoo Reef, witnessed the re-enactment of a traditional Tobago-styled wedding and interacted with Tobago House of Assembly (THA) officials, British expats and Tobagonians during his State visit yesterday.
Shortly after noon under a blazing midday sun and amid tight security, the Duke was whisked to the scenic Blue Haven Hotel, Bacolet Bay, where he was welcomed by a Scarborough-based mixed choir, the Youth Quake, who dressed in breezy outfits of red and white, sang “Welcome to the West Indies, welcome to Tobago...stay” which drew smiles from the Duke and which set the tone for the visit as he mingled freely with guests and a small assembly of local and British sailors. Six Standard Five students from Buccoo Government Primary School showed Prince Philip a model of the island and the conservation of Buccoo Reef, which according to school principal Ronald Duke, had been constructed by the students over the past few weeks.
