HADCO, Phase II ‘shack up’

CHAMPION panside Phase II Pan Groove will soon acquire the deed for the land on which it currently resides, says band manager Errol Skerritt. A newly formed agreement between local distribution company, HADCO and the multiple Panorama winner will aid in construction and development of the band’s physical space, said Skerritt in an interview with Newsday. The band and HADCO held a press conference yesterday to formally announce its sponsorship of the band, ending a 16-year-relationship with State-owned energy company, Petrotrin.

“One of the things that hurt us a lot is that we have been unable to develop our facility as we would like. One of things that resulted in that was the fact that up to now as we speak we do not have a deed. Therefore, when you talk development it has to be limited because you have to take into account, Town and Country and the other enabling agencies to approve.  We are hoping over the next few months to have a deed in our hands because our situation was approved since last year,” Skerritt said.  In 2010, the band was asked to vacate its Hamilton Street, Woodbrook address to make way for One Woodbrook Place. But the band remained there.

HADCO’s co-CEO, John Hadad also said that part of its sponsorship of the band will include the improving the band’s physical infrastructure. He said, “To start with we want to make sure whatever we do, we do not interfere with the vibe of the panyard. So we want to help them upgrade their physical facilities. So when you come there and park your car you are going to be safe; you should not have your car towed…” “Enter the panyard and know that this is a panyard with history.  Whether we achieve that in 2016 or 2017 remains to be seen,” he added. Hadad also added that youth and the growth of youth interest in pan is also very important to Phase II Pan Groove and HADCO.
