Wednesday 31st October, 2018-Ten national awards will be bestowed on Antiguans and Barbudans during the Independence ceremonial parade on Thursday morning.

There are reports that knighthoods will be among the national honours tomorrow that will be handed out by Governor General, His Excellency Sir Rodney Williams.

At least 50 nominations were submitted to National Honours Committee.
