St Helena Flag Flies High over FCO for First Time







ST HELENA’S DAY
CELEBRATIONS 2013









St Helena Flag Flies High over FCO for First
Time



 



The St Helena’s Day celebrations
held in Jamestown and organised by New Horizons as an all day annual event,
began with the traditional parade and opening Service.



 



The mini marathon kicked of the
day’s sporting events, followed by the Novelty Sports that were once again won
by the Basil Read team with a new runner up, the EMD/ Lupa collaboration.



 



Throughout the day there were a
variety of stalls and entertainment in Jamestown, with a popular favourite, the
Fowlers’ popcorn/cotton candy/sweet stall. There were also long queues on the
seafront for the face painting and nail art stalls. Many stands and games were
raising money for charities - including the Family Support Trust and Cancer
Awareness, who had a confectionary and raffle stall.



 



One of the most anticipated events
of the day was the Float Parade, with the Corona Society leading the way, followed
by Harford Primary’s slave themed float, Little Miss May Queen, plus the
impressive Longwood House with Napoleon and his Soldiers. The Athletic
Commonwealth Day float finished the parade. Fireworks in the evening rounded
off the day and drew the largest crowd.



 



Also celebrating St Helena’s Day
was the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) in London, which flew St Helena’s
Flag for the very first time, Minister Mark Simmonds tweeted: ‘Delighted to
see the St Helena flag flying over the FCO today, marking St Helena Day.’
