The Excellency the Governor,Honourable Premier, ladies and gentlemen, good afternoon. Before I begin, I would like to say that the month of May is quite special for it is the month that we celebrate our seniors; so May 1 to 30 is being celebrated as Seniors’ Month and I would like to wish all seniors although this year we would not be able to create all the plans that we have, we would like you to know that our golden gems are special indeed. Today, May 8 is also that of World Red Cross Day and you would no doubt be familiar of all the works that the Red Cross has done through out the world and here in the BVI, not only in 2017 but also as they have done their part in the Territory Provisioning Programme that we have and actually continue to do.
