On behalf of the Department of Agriculture, I wish to express our sincerest apologies to farmers, stakeholders, members of the Anegada community, and the wider Virgin Islands community for the inconvenience caused in postponing this morning’s annual Farmers’ Week Prize Giving Ceremony and Exhibition.
The postponement was as a result of technical difficulties experienced by the ferry.
