Earlier as we speak, prospects and distributors within the Barbados Affiliation of Retailers Distributors and Entrepreneurs (BARVEN) market on the Mighty Grynner Freeway braved the cloud of ash which hung closely throughout the island.
Head of BARVEN Alistair Alexander mentioned that they had an obligation to provide Barbadians with meals and that’s what they got here out to do. He added they’d not be out for so long as customary, given the waning visibility.
On the Bridgetown Fisheries Advanced on Princess Alice Freeway, distributors had been busily attempting to promote fish to final minute prospects over the fence, because the guards closed the gate stopping individuals from coming into.
A launch from the Barbados Authorities Info Service and the Ministry of Maritime Affairs and the Blue Economic system suggested that each one fish markets throughout the island had been closed for the rest of as we speak.
“The Ministry of Maritime Affairs and the Blue Economic system is taking this motion in response to advisories issued by the Barbados Meteorological Companies concerning the volcanic ash fall from the erupting La Soufriere volcano in St Vincent and the Grenadines, and to minimise antagonistic results on customers of the markets,” the discharge learn.
