Yesterday, staff of the legendary Sandy Lane Hotel paid a trip to St Nicholas Abbey and were looked after by Heather.
Heather says "We had a visit from some of the Sandy Lane Staff yesterday. They were out for the day
touring various attractions in Barbados and we thank them for including St Nicholas Abbey in their itinerary.
I enjoyed showing them around and extended an invitation for them to return, especially when we start our grinding of the sugar cane.'
