with st roses being demolished has the trust made any plans to save the jubilee statues of 1896 the bust of 1847 when the ursuline convent started st roses as well as the stained glass window panes with the ursuline convent logo. what of the grand piano- I doubt it still works but it was a gift for the first music festival staged in Brit Guiana as this was the main auditorium, the biggest in the country for such events. is any part of the building going to be saved such as the bells the columns and the main arch above the main entrance which is the lone remainining original piece certainly there must be some where to store it even if it cannot be displayed I will hope that the director of culture looks into this too
The cannon mounted in the front garden at 94 Carmichael Street became very visible recently after the bushes were cleared for the erection of a new fence. ( March 2018) The Plaque reads: " Believed to be of English Origin, this Cannon was unearhted on June 25 2008 at Waterloo Street, Georgetown ." Has the National Trust been able to carry out any further research into the history of this cannon? Its discovery in Waterloo Street adjacent to the Parade Ground would suggest connections with the Militia there in 1812. Perhaps the the Cannon should be moved to a more prominent position on the parade Ground , Particularly as the N.T.G. no longer seems have 'command' over 94 Carmichael Street .
