The Future of St Helena
This February workshops on the thirteen draft strategic objectives will commence in St Helena.
Members of Legislative Council have suggested thirteen draft strategic objectives for the Island ranging from improved access to care for the elderly and improving links with Ascension during the process of change. Members of the public will be able to give their views on these objectives at the workshops after having read about them and having listened to a number of radio discussions.
In addition to persons on St Helena, the St Helena Government is very keen to hear the views of people overseas including those on Ascension and the Falkland Islands.
For this purpose a web discussion forum has been set up at www.sthelenaonline.com and you are encouraged to visit this site where you will be able to read about the objectives and give your comments. The thirteen draft objectives have also been published in The Islander, on the Falkland Islands News Network and in the St Helena Herald. Your comments can also be faxed to The Castle on 00 290 2598.
SHG stresses that the objectives are only in draft at this point in time and they will not be finalised until the people have spoken. You are encouraged to give your views because they will be taken into consideration and as a result, St Helena will go forward in a way that has been agreed by the people.
