With the aim to restore a prominent site and to build bridges with the public, the Guyana Police Force, yesterday, adopted the Georgetown Seawall bandstand.
The bandstand was used by Colonial Police in the past to entertain frequent visitors to the seawall, but now with the restoration of the structure by the current police force, families can now continue to enjoy entertainment provided by the entity’s orchestra.
In 1903 the Georgetown Seawall Bandstand was built with funds subscribed by the public as a memorial to Queen Victoria.
The shelter north of the bandstand, called the Koh-i-noor Shelter, was also erected in 1903. The building was commissioned by the late Governor, Sir James Alexander Swettenham.
The Georgetown Seawall is a favourite place for afternoon walks, listening to music (at the bandstand), spontaneous cricket matches, lovers’ trysts and other activities.
