>>>Sir Cliff Richard is aiming to start a new life in Barbados once he has cleared his name in a child-sex investigation, friends have told the Sunday People.
They claim the 73-year-old megastar is the victim of a police witch-hunt.
And they insist he will move to the West Indian paradise as soon as he has proved his innocence.
Sir Cliff owns a sprawling £6million estate – complete with a luxury villa – on the Commonwealth island.
And he took out citizenship there two years ago.<<<

Have the ghosts of Paradise Beach Club already landed in Haywoods? Are we now seeing emerging one of the reasons why Sandals' Butch Stewart recently out of the blue bought Almond Beach Village outright off the hands of the government of Barbados at bargain basement? It is suspected that the other reason had to do with the nascent calls from the operators of the section of ABV that's open for the entire St. Peter property to be turned over them for a quick and cheap re-opening. Now that Butch got his way, any deviation from announced plans the question must be asked whether he is beginning to put ABV on the ice as much he did to PBC a generation ago:
"The much talked about construction of the Beaches Resort at the former Almond Village property in St Peter could be delayed.
Although not saying how long the setback was anticipated to be, Gordon Butch Stewart, chairman of the parent company Sandals Resort International, said it was unlikely that the planned multi-million-dollar project would get off the ground in the first quarter of next year as initially announced.
In February, Stewart told Barbados TODAY that the plan was to start construction in the middle of April 2015, with an expectation that it would be completed in about 22 months.
However, when asked last Friday if the plans were still on course, Butch would only say: “We are working towards that [date, but] it is probably a bit further down in the year . . . We are juggling a lot of things right now and there is a lot of work taking place on that Beaches design.”"

"His £3million Algarve farm and his £6million plantation-style villa in Barbados are his pride and joy. He spends more time there than he does at the apartment that was raided yesterday, which he bought in 2008.
He shrugged recently that he spends 'a week here, a week there' in Britain and it has been revealed that he is not even a UK resident any longer as he spends so little time in the country. He is domiciled instead in Barbados, where he spends each winter."

Jetty Saved In Speightstown's Twin-City - Charleston, SC. Is anyone paying attention in Barbados? Click here for more - http://j.mp/19WVWmX.
"Speightstown has been twinned with:
England - Reading, Berkshire, England (since 2003)
United States - Charleston, South Carolina (since November 1997), the original parts of which were based on the plans of Barbados's capital city Bridgetown. Many dispossessed indigo, tobacco and cotton planters departed from Speightstown along with their slaves and helped found Charleston after there was a wholesale move to adopt sugar cane cultivation in Barbados; a land and labour intensive enterprise which helped usher in the era of Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade in the British West Indies."

"The popular Ramshackle Bar in Mount Standfast, St James, has closed its doors, leaving 15 workers jobless.
According to co-owner Maxine Depeiza, the closure resulted from her business partner’s decision to pull out of the business and the owners of the land not wishing the operation to continue.
Ramshackle closed at the end of November and Depeiza said many of her former employees were mothers of young children.
She spoke to the SATURDAY SUN yesterday as she oversaw the removal of materials which she had added to the wooden structure in 2010 after leasing the property from owners who lived overseas."
