Commuters were treated to a morning snack and best wishes for the new year when a group of council members met them at their ferry stop.

Representatives from Southampton Parish Council laid on the breakfast for people at Rockaway last week.

Passengers on the 8am and 8.20am ferries were offered free juice, water, fruit and pastries during the meet and greet event last Thursday.

Stacey-Lee Williams, the Southampton Parish Council chairwoman, said: “This is the second time we have surprised the commuters with pastries, and it’s just a small way to let them know that council is here for parish residents, and we hope to be a symbol of community for the parish.”

Seniors at Dr Cann Park, a Bermuda Housing Trust development in Southampton, were each given a $50 grocery voucher from the council earlier this month.

Ms Williams said: “The residents were very grateful, and members always come away feeling extremely fulfilled after spending some time with these deserving residents.”

The council will hold a “fun walk” from Whale Bay to Wadson’s Farm on March 15, with the start time to be confirmed.
