The Carnival Bands Association is mourning the loss of a fallen soldier. Carnival stalwart Allan Didier passed away on Thursday in the United states.
“His loss brings sadness to the carnival fraternity at a time when we are planning for the island’s biggest cultural showpiece,” said President of the Carnival Bands Association, Sonia Sifflet.
“Alan was a Carnival enthusiast, and was part of the Management of the now defunct Originals Carnival Band. He continued his support to Carnival while in his role of Operations Manager at the Castries City Council, by being the representative on the Select Committee of Stakeholders. Our condolences go out to his wife Jennifer and son,” Sifflet added.
