School honours West End athletes

Sandys Middle School students, staff and parents came together to honour Somerset sporting legends at this year's May 24 festivities.

Not only does this year's parade float put a spotlight on numerous West End athletes, but those athletes were yesterday invited to the school to get a sneak preview.

Teacher Christopher Naylor said: “We had a good group of people come out, and they all seemed to enjoy seeing their name in lights, so to speak.” Mr Naylor said that the float was a massive project with around half of the school body assisting to some extent, saying they were pleased to bring attention to the wide range of athletes from the area.

Clyde Best, Randy Horton, Peter Bromby, Jessie Washington and Justin Donowa are just a few of the athletes whose names or images are represented on the float.

“What we realised quite quickly is there are quite a lot of people that have come out of Somerset and have represented Bermuda,” he said. “The challenge was fitting everybody on.”
