    BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS, SEPTEMBER 13TH 2007 (CUOPM) – The inauguration of the monument to St. Kitts and Nevis’ First National Hero, the Right Excellent Sir Robert Llewellyn Bradshaw on September 16th, is one of the highlights of this year’s 24th Anniversary of Independence.
     
    St. Kitts and Nevis’ Prime Minister Hon. Dr. Denzil Llewellyn Douglas said the Bradshaw Memorial Park is being prepared in St. Paul’s, birthplace of Bradshaw, who dominated the political scene in St. Kitts-Nevis and Anguilla and the Caribbean for several decades serving as Chief Minister and Premier of St. Kitts-Nevis-Anguilla and Minister of Finance of the West Indies Federation.
     
    “We would like to thank the President of Cuba, His Excellency Dr. Fidel Castro and the People of Cuba for this very generous donation of this monument to mark the life and work and the 90th year of the birth of our great National Hero,” said Prime Minister Douglas at a Press Conference.
     
    September 16th is National Heroes Day and is a public holiday. As the date falls on a Sunday, this year, the Monday 17th will be a public holiday.
     
    Last September, Dr. Douglas announced that a memorial is to be erected at Bradshaw’s birthplace. Since then Resident Cuban Ambassador to St. Kitts and Nevis, Her Excellency Ana Maria Gonzalez and prominent Cuban Sculptor, Mr. Andres Gonzalez have been briefing Prime Minister Douglas, several government officials and the Committee organising the activities to commemorate the 90th Year of Bradshaw’s birth.~~Adz:Right~~
     
    Robert Llewellyn Bradshaw was born at St. Paul’s Village, St. Kitts on the 16th September 1916 and died on May 23rd 1978.Regarded as the “Father of Independence,” Premier Bradshaw had long been an advocate of independence for the State of St. Kitts-Nevis and Anguilla. When his Labour Party won all of the seats in St. Kitts in December 1975 with a mandate to take the State into Independence, he conducted independence talks with the United Kingdom Government in London in 1976 and 1977.
     
    The Robert Llewellyn Bradshaw Memorial Park will be located on 3.5 acres of land and will feature not only a full size sculpture of the Federation’s First National Hero, but also an Interpretation Centre which will be constructed in the second phase.
