Jicky’s Latest News and the site archives
We always called our news pages after Jicky (Ordrick Samuel) who for many years has loudly announced village news including birthdays, deaths, meetings and politics – interspersed with his favourite songs – over an annoying loudspeaker from his roof; with only occasional interruptions when he’s shut down by a new neighbour. But now we use our barbudaful fb feed instead.
We still have our old Jicky’s Latest News (JLN) articles going back twenty years as far as 2004 – when the barbudaful website started – which was before Facebook! Some of the older posts may have lost some of their content (images and old links) over that time, but they are an interesting snapshot of life on Barbuda and you can read through all of them here.
