ALL ABOARD: The PM is greeted by passengers on the train travelling to the Denbigh Agricultural and Industrial Show in Clarendon on Emancipation Day. Golding, who delivered the main address at the 59th staging of the national event, boarded the train at the Spanish Town Railway Station with members of his cabinet, including health minister Rudyard Spencer and state minister for commerce, Michael Stern. After 16 years, the train service was resumed when it rolled onto the tracks for a test run in April.
SUNDAY BEST: At last Sunday's National Thanksgiving church service at the Rehoboth Gospel Assembly in Kingston, PM Golding greets Reverend Newton Dixon, pastor of the St. Patrick’s African Methodist Episcopal Church in Old Harbour. The service, held under the theme, "The Journey Continues," was organised by the Committee for Planning and Promotion of National Religious Services. Beside the PM is Custos of St. Andrew, Marigold Harding.
THE GODFATHER: Amidst the speech-giving and touring at Denbigh, Golding also made time for the young ones. President of the Jamaica Agricultural Society, Glendon Harris, also did the rounds with the PM.
GRAND OPENING: Golding and businesswoman Lorraine Clunie perform the final act to ceremonially open the Oasis on the Oxford business complex and reception venue at Oxford Road in Kingston last Sunday. Applauding the Clunies, Golding said that his government was working hard to create the conditions, such as low interest rates, that will allow more small and micro enterprises to flourish. Oasis employs 20 full-time workers.
