Redhead also said “thank you to the men and women of our Royal Grenada Police Force for a job well done, the personnel from the emergency medical services, and public works”.
The Minister also used the opportunity to thank the public for its support of Grenada’s major cultural festival “last but not least, I would like to thank revelers and Carnival lovers who came out in the thousands to support our biggest cultural event, as well as our visitors who came specifically for Spicemas 2022.”
Spicemas returned following a two-year hiatus as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
