Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport Olivia ‘Babsy’ Grange, has announced that there are plans to place a statue of legendary athlete Usain Bolt in Trelawny, the parish where he was born and raised, come December.
The statue will be placed in Water Square in the parish capital of Falmouth beside the historic water fountain. The statue will be replica of the one that already exists at the National Stadium.
Plans are now under way to get the statue down to Trelawny and to make the area ready for the installation.
“When we say Trelawny today, we think immediately of Dr the Honourable Usain Bolt, who hails from the quiet district of Sherwood Content and who has placed Jamaica on the world stage in a way unlike any other. The minister stated.
She made this announcement on Sunday during the Heritage Week church service that was held in Falmouth.
