An enjoyable time was enjoyed by all who attended last Saturday’s SEA Awards & Cultural Show staged by the Charford Court Community Council. Residents, children, entertainers, even politicians turned out in the numbers to celebrate ten of the children who passed this year SEA exams and secured places in secondary schools.
Council president Clive Telemaque, a veteran pannist with Massy Trinidad All Stars, cut a dapper picture in his bronze-coloured outfit, as he welcomed MP Stuart Young and Port-of-Spain North Councillor Abena Hartley to the event. An exuberant and excited Cathyann Bateau hosted proceedings and introduced a slew of artistes from the community and environs, some coming from neighbouring Gonzales and Belmont. Also present were members of steelbands from the East Dry River cachement area, Renegades, All Stars and Desperadoes.
After the playing of the national anthem by Trinidad All Stars Youth tenor pannist Nalo Elie, performances flowed like a stream. Among the performers entertaining the audience were calypsonians All Rounder, Relator, Bro Mudada, KP, Web and Bunny Bynoe, Breath of Dance Theatre Group, Church of Scotland T&T Steelband, Gonzales Cultural Performers, the Charford Court Sunday School, Prince Naphtali, Malcolm Boyce, Daniel Gulston, Rance Johnson, Illusionist Kess, Sheikers Steel, Sapophonics and Trinidad All Stars Youth. Keeping the programme were DJs Cutting Crew and Jaffe Pierre.
