The Rotherley Construction Inc. Race Day
For the past four years, Rotherley Construction has sponsored the Rotherley Construction Race Day featuring thoroughbred Horse Racing in Barbados
at the Garrison Savannah. The Horse Racing track in Barbados, less than two miles outside the capital of Bridgetown, has been the home of horse
racing since the colonial days of 1845. As stated "The officers of the British Regiment who were stationed in Barbados, used what was then the parade
ground to match their horses in races and the wealthy merchants and planters later joined them."
The Barbados Turf Club, which regulates and promotes horse racing in Barbados, was established in 1905 and organizes three (3) seasons of racing per year.
These meetings run from January to April; May to August and from October to December.
The Rotherley Race Day, is held during the month of February and is a time when the Rotherley staff hosts family, business associates and friends
to the warm Rotherley hospitality.
On Saturday February 10, 2007 Sir David Seale's 3-year-old colt JOHN BRIAN easily won the feature Rotherley Construction Inc. Stakes & Trophy (Condition
Race) for Non-West Indian bred 3-year-olds over 1570 metres (7.8 furlongs) at the Garrison Savannah.

Rotherley Supports The Sunshine School
Rotherley Construction Inc. salutes and recognizes the important role which the
newly established Sunshine Early Stimulation Centre, is playing in the Barbadian
community. This centre, a not for profit preschool for children 0-5 years who
are physically or mentally challenged, aims to provide them with a safe
nurturing environment to develop social, functional, physical and academic
skills necessary for this stage.
It is the intention of Rotherley Construction Inc. that children and parents
from all social strata of Barbados be given the opportunity to benefit from this
specialized children service which must be funded by parents. Therefore in
keeping with its policy of giving back to the community, Rotherley Construction
Inc has established the "Rotherley Construction Early Education Scholarship' to
provide assistance to those parents who are unable to pay the full price for
service. The scholarship will be for a yearly period and is guaranteed for a
period of three years to the centre.
With this scholarship these deserving children are now able to access modern but
appropriate programs and therapies associated with education, speech language,
play and occupational therapy. Parents too will benefit from the social work and
family counseling aimed at providing a fully supportive environment where they
can increase their knowledge on particular special needs issues and ways in
which they can be of greater assistance to their children.
Currently the centre caters to 15 children with an additional 10 expected in the
near future. The Sunshine Early Stimulation Centre, located at Perry Gap, St.
Michael, is headed by Ms Julie Sealy, a former Director of the Challenor School
and Cheryl Rock, both qualified to facilitate expert training and stimulation
for the overall development of these children with special needs.

Scholarship presented by the company's representative Kevin Burke, Vice
President of Finance and Administration.
