Portrait to honour the Islands first female MP
A portrait depicting Bermudas first female Member of Parliament, Edna Watson, will be unveiled in the House of Assembly today.
The oil portrait by local artist Dianna Tetlow, was commissioned by the Paget Parish Council to commemorate Bermudas 400th anniversary.
Council members also decided to honour Ms Watson for her significant achievements. Ms Watson represented the parish of Paget and served in the House from 1948 to 1953.
Bermudian historian Meredith Ebbin will read Ms Watsons biography. Ms Tetlow will be on hand to discuss the work that went into creating the oil painting, followed by the presentation of the portrait.
The unveiling ceremony begins at 12.45pm.
