A pilot programme of community celebration, organised by the group Imagine Bermuda, marked a success at the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo.

Glenn Fubler of Imagine Bermuda said the gathering on July 30 drew more than 170 people — double the numbers expected.

Ian Walker, veterinarian and principal curator of BAMZ, hosted visitors and offered boat trips around Harrington Sound.

Mr Fubler said the family night had been selected for BAMZ because of its hospitality role as well as its importance for natural history and education.

Conservationist David Wingate took guests on guided tours of the museum, while Michael Bradshaw, a recently retired senior biology lecturer at the Bermuda College, provided a tour of the fish tank hall.

Mr Fubler added: “This spirit of collaboration and giving back was the essence of its success. MEF Group provided a supply of pizza, at no cost. Voluntary assistance by Saleem Talbot of Xrossroad Warriors FC; Stacey Williams and her team from Somersfield Academy; Larry Ebbin of the Bermuda Chess Club, and Nelson Pimentel of St Patrick’s Church, among others, made the difference.”

The collaboration, dubbed “Bermuda Adventure” came from the marking of the late Nelson Mandela’s 100th birthday on July 18.

Up next is an open house hosted by Auto Solutions on St John’s Road, Pembroke, tomorrow from 5pm to 6.30pm.

Details will be found on the company’s Facebook Page, Mr Fubler said.
