The Award announces Farm as New Home

The Duke Of Edinburgh's International Award - Barbados has erected its sign at the entrance to Culloden Farm, officially taking possession of the property for the development of their youth program.


This follows the signing of an Agreement between the organisation and the Government of Barbados, which will see the property being used as the new BArbados headquarters for the well-known international youth achievement program.


The Agreement negotiated with the Government by Chairman of the Operating Council of the Award Mr. Stephen Smith, provides for the leasing of Culloden Farm to the Award for an initial period of twenty five years, with an option to renew for a further twenty five years.


In return, the Award has agreed to raise the necessary funds and restore the buildings and grounds of Culloden Farm, which is in an advanced state of disrepair. The Lease for property will be held in trust by the Board of Trustees of The Award, which is chaired by Sir Trevor Carmichael.

Culloden Farm is the former official residence of our first Prime Minister The Right Honourable Errol Barrow, and is considered a property of national significance and importance. Ends.
