Sandwiched between Washington and Seafield/Number 42 Village, the small village of Rising Sun on the West Coast of Berbice is a community of close familial ties.
Almost everyone living in the small stretch that comprises the Rising Sun comes from at least one of five families: the Seecharans, the Hookumchands, the Rosses, the Tappins or the Wades. Though some persons married into the community, they are nevertheless wholly welcomed and soon fall into the groove of things.
