TT – “We embrace the North Park!” Pan Trinbago president Beverly Ramsey-Moore declared yesterday as she addressed the launch of Panorama 2019 at BP Renegades Pan Theatre, Charlotte Street, Port of Spain.
“We look forward to that great show, that great show in the North Park,” an upbeat Ramsey-Moore told pan lovers.
She said although the organisation has had its “challenges” with the decision of National Carnival Commission (NCC) chairman Winston “Gypsy” Peters to do away with the North Stand, Pan Trinbago now had a dynamic team that has been working alongside the organisation to ensure its interests were secured. They are vice-president Carlan Harewood and ace pannist Dane Gulston.
“These are the two men who are working closely with the operations committee and also the infrastructure committee of NCC to ensure that pan has its space,” she said.
“We have already indicated that we will not be bullied out of our space. If you are not constructing the North Stand, then it is a new idea. It is a novel idea. We embrace the North Park but pan must have its space.” Ramsey-Moore added: “No one must run us out of our space and, as such, these two gentlemen will be there to ensure that the posses come in the space.”
She said posses were calling the organisation every day.
