Gingerbread feature shines a light
The Hamilton Princess & Beach Club has put the spotlight on ocean pollution with its traditional Christmas gingerbread house.
The structure, inspired by Gibbs Hill Lighthouse, features a longtail, a night heron and a turtle, made out of plastic waste collected on Bermuda’s beaches by Keep Bermuda Beautiful.
Ricardo Cera, the hotel’s executive chef, said: “It is our most ambitious project yet and we are pleased to have been able to work with Keep Bermuda Beautiful to shine a light on the issue of ocean pollution and conservation.
“We can’t wait to see what the public thinks and we invite everyone to come and see it.”
Anne Hyde, the executive director at Keep Bermuda Beautiful, said: “We were delighted to be asked to be involved in the hotel’s famous gingerbread house display this year.
“Their creations are always so much fun and are a wonderful festive display.
“We hope that everyone who comes out to see it admires the hard work, but also takes away the message about how important it is to protect our ocean from plastic waste.”
The structure is 9ft tall, 6ft wide and weighs 420lbs, with a real light on the top and is big enough for an adult to stand inside.
Festive events at the hotel this year include the Teddy Bear Tea, between 3pm and 5pm every weekend, where children are encouraged to donate a new stuffed toy to charity.
