Children and young adults gathered for an afternoon of face painting, dancing, storytelling, music by the Chamber Players, and a visit by Santa Claus and gifts at a Christmas party hosted by His Excellency Governor Mr. Augustus J.U. Jaspert and Mrs. Jaspert.
The party was held at the Governor’s residence on December 5. The Eslyn Henley Richiez Learning Centre, Rainbow Children’s Home, Autism Centre and Social Development’s BVI Services were all represented at the event.
This year, the Governor, Mrs. Jaspert and the Governor’s team decided to host the reception for the group of young people instead of his general Christmas party, as a way to spread holiday cheer.
The Governor thanked the various organisations and groups that assisted with the preparation and execution of the party for the special group of children.
