For that reason alone it’s not hard to understand why he has called Barbados his home for over 40 years.

“So long I here, I love Barbados as if it is my home. I love everything about Barbados. There’s no other place in the world I would rather live,” Patrick told the WEEKEND NATION.

Born and raised in Gros Islet, a small community located in the northern tip of St Lucia, Annius had always planned to relocate to Barbados.

His mother and sister had already moved here and he was eager to follow them.

So shortly after graduating from Monchy Secondary School at 17 years old, he hopped on a plane not knowing what to expect.
