READER LETTER: "There is no better way of celebrating life"

Thursday 11 August 2022

Good morning to those working to the early hours picking and sticking flowers to their remarkable floats, which are now making their way towards the most creative partnership with natural beauty parade on earth.

We are so much looking forward to enjoying the spectacle of flower festooned floats and costumes providing a tremendous spirit of community participation.

Happy 120th birthday. 

There is no better way of celebrating life - made by islanders of all ages, for islands and visitors.

Thank you.

Christopher McCarthy
Former Sustainable Commissioner, 2013-17
