Trinidad Newsday -- In this January 26, 2018 file photo work men put the final touches on the North Stand of the Queen's Park Savannah, Port of Spain just in time for the Panorama semi-finals for medium and large steel bands on January 28. This will not be the scene for 2019 and the NCC has said it would not rebuild the stand because it was too costly.

This will not be the scene for 2019 and the NCC has said it would not rebuild the stand because it was too costly.

Pan Trinbago President Beverly Ramsey-Moore yesterday said the decision to abolish the North Stand, Queen's Park Savannah, Port of Spain, and replace it with the North Park was taken long before she was made a member of the National Carnival Commission (NCC).

Addressing a cheque distribution ceremony for steelband finalists in this year’s Panorama competition, Ramsey-Moore said even though she was upset about the move, she was not opposed to change.

“Even though I sit at meetings, I battle,” she said. “The decision has already been made and there is nothing that I can do as one member on the commission to change that decision. But what I can do is to ensure that whatever the space is that was used for the North Stand has the capacity to hold the amount that the North Stand holds.”
