22 September 2015, London UK – From Leeds to Birmingham to Northampton, proud nationals and well-wishers of St. Kitts and Nevis living in the UK, gathered in celebration of the 32nd Independence anniversary of the twin-island Federation. With patriotic sensibilities on full display, crowds feted and toasted in typical Caribbean fashion while reminiscing and expressing hope for continued upward mobility of the Federation and its citizens and residents.
His Excellency Dr Kevin Isaac, High Commissioner joined the celebrations in Birmingham and Leeds while Eustace T. Wallace, Counsellor, joined nationals in Northampton. The High Commissioner and his team were able to hear first-hand what that the respective Associations were doing in their communities to keep the Kittitian/Nevisian spirit alive across the UK. They also heard about fundraising initiatives and the life-changing projects and commitments nationals are making to communities and institutions in the Federation.
The 32nd Independence celebrations provided a real opportunity for the High Commission to engage with the diaspora in order to foster an improved working relationship for the advancement of the Federation – in a country that is of strategic political and economic importance.
