CABINET NOTES:

The Minister of Creative Industries invited four experts from the Festivals Office to address the upcoming 2022 Carnival.

The Officer responsible for finances explained that the Antigua Recreation Grounds (ARG) has been unused for more than two years and requires significant upgrading.

The Minister of Works agreed that his Ministry would examine the state of the ARG and make every effort to ready it for the Carnival festivities.

The Double Decker ARG Stand which has already been condemned is likely to be removed in a few weeks, creating new space for special seating during Carnival.

Contemplation is being given to razing the Sir Vivian Richards Stand in order to make way for a superior modern facility.

The food vendors within the ARG will soon move into the completed temporary space, directly outside the ARG.

APUA will next install running water and proper disposal for the runoff.

Carnival participants are all encouraged to vaccinate or to be tested for Covid-19 before participating in troupes and other groups.
