It was long in coming and when the Police finally delivered their version of the
Gymkhana to Berbice, it was fantastic stuff.
The Berbice version of the annual Police Gymkhana Event was held last Sunday at the Area H ground in Rose Hall Town, Corentyne.

The dogs and horses were on display in various routines. There were the physical displays and a number of novelty events including drills, musical chairs, foot drills, late for work, Lime and spoon, needle and thread and three legged race.
The bikers and the horse jumping through the fire and the dogs search and finding guns and drugs were some of the highlights on the days programme. The police military band also performed for the crowd.
