Restoration project to continue
Young people will continue a project to restore a heritage spot, social development minister Zane DeSilva announced.
The Fort Cunningham and Paget Island Restoration Project was set up in April as part of the tenth year celebrations of the Mirrors Programme.
Mr DeSilva said: “Mirrors will continue to lead the development of the plan for restoring Fort Cunningham and Paget Island to support an increased usage and awareness of both sites.
“This is a great opportunity to support the preservation of Bermuda's heritage.”
It is a collaborative project between Mirrors, Outward Bound, Department of Youth, Sport and Recreation, Department of Parks, the National Museum, Bermuda National Trust, Keep Bermuda Beautiful and volunteers. It is sponsored by XL Catlin.
A community cleanup day on Saturday, November 18, begins with breakfast and stretching exercises at Kings Square in St George's before heading to the island at 8.40am. Participants will return at 4pm.
It is available to young people aged 14 to 16, accompanied by an adult, and people aged 17 and older. Young people will be able to acquire community service hours.
