The Minister of Social Development and Sports, The Hon. Zane Desilva, JP, MP is pleased to announce the continuation of the Fort Cunningham and Paget Island Restoration Project, initiated by the Mirrors Programme in April as part of their 10th year celebration activities and sponsored by XL Catlin.
"Mirrors will continue to lead the development of the plan for restoring Fort Cunningham and Paget Island to support an increased usage and awareness of both sites," Minister Desilva explained. “November 18th 2017 will be the second community cleanup day which is open to the broader community for participation.
“This is a great opportunity to support the preservation of Bermuda’s heritage.”
The day will begin with breakfast and stretching exercises at Kings Square before the team heads to the island at 8:40 a.m. and returns at 4:00 p.m.
The restoration project is a collaborative project between Mirrors, Outward Bound, Department of Youth, Sport and Recreation, Department of Parks, the National Museum, Bermuda National Trust, Keep Bermuda Beautiful and volunteers.
This volunteer opportunity is available to young people aged 14 – 16 (accompanied by an adult) and persons aged 17 and older. The event is an opportunity for young people to acquire community service hours. Mirrors welcomes the participation of your organization, staff, children, students and parents. If members of the public are interested in participating, please contact Jeanene Todd at the Mirrors office, 294-9291 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
