Mayor's New Year's Message



We will go forward better people in 2024.


This is a new year; you get to explore a new horizon with confidence, style, and a little trepidation.

As a member of the town, I invite you to explore the town with fresh eyes, thinking of community, heritage, and growth. As Bermuda's only UNESCO World Heritage Site, we must be diligent in our care and presentation of our town's treasures—they are one-of-a-kind, precious, and beloved the world over.

The Town of St. George has provided shelter, jobs, and prosperity for many families over the centuries. It is only dedication that has made this possible, a commitment known as true Bermudian spirit—a spirit that has allowed us to be adventurous, kind, and forever young.

We chase the fiery sunsets with laughter on our lips, embracing stumbles as stepping stones to incredible experiences—personally, professionally, and socially.

Be encouraged. St. George's will win the Cup. Be uplifted to know your councillors are trusted as stewards to care for your town. Dream big and see beyond today's barriers by taking one step today to get you closer to your goal.

You are a St. Georgian. You are a Bermudian. You are our future. Go forth and make great things happen.
 



Paved Future 

Road works done.

As we start afresh with a new year and new asphalt laid in the last quarter of 2023, the Corporation would like to extend our appreciation for your patience during the recent road-paving project. We know it wasn't always smooth sailing – detours, temporary parking woes, and the occasional rumble of machinery — hardly the recipe for an inviting and enjoyable town atmosphere.

Yet, throughout it all, you met every bump and detour with understanding and grace. You embraced alternative routes, navigated detours with a smile, and most importantly, trusted that the inconvenience was paving the way for a brighter future. As we turn a new page in our town's story, let us do so together, united by the spirit of community and the smooth road that lies ahead.

The project was run the Ministry of Public Works and contracted to East End Asphalt with the permission of the Corporation of St. George's..


Thank you Bermy Winter Wonderland Team 

The team brings wonder and amazement to the town.

The Corporation of St. George's express our deepest gratitude for your remarkable Winter Wonderland at Somers Gardens this holiday season. Your dedication transformed our space into the go-to Christmas destination in the east end.

Stepping into your Winter Wonderland was like entering a storybook scene. The twinkling lights, festive decorations, and the sheer scale of your creativity were unmistakably evident.  It brought us immense glee to see kids' eyes light up with excitement..

The Winter Wonderland wasn't just lights and decorations; it was a gift to the community, bringing families together, sparking giving, and spreading joy in our historic town. The memories created will linger for years.



We're grateful for the team's talent and passion. The Winter Wonderland exemplified community spirit, and we're honored to be a part of it!

Santa's Workshop and Elves.
 

Team work brings the community together.

Christmas is one of the busiest times for the Corporation team. We have back-to-back events throughout the month, demanding incredible synchronicity from our small, highly skilled team to deliver top-notch entertainment that's enjoyable and accessible for all of Bermuda.

It all starts with miles of lights strung across light poles, gracefully illuminating roads; spiraling lights up thirty-foot trees, wrapping a two-story, 200-year-old building in lights, and spanning across an open-water bridge that must be meticulously secured and safe. Next, we stage the town for our community partner, accommodating up to 3,000 guests at once. Seven days later, we run a full operation to stage a Santa presentation that lives up to the high expectations of our littlest town members. Finally, to round out the month, we host the biggest New Year's celebration in Bermuda.



We are pleased to do this work as it brings smiles to our residents and assists our businesses in setting a bright and cheerful atmosphere for town commerce. While we've heard requests for fireworks, we carefully considered the options and determined a focus that aligns best with our current budget and priorities.

We're proud to build on St. George's unique traditions and remain a vibrant community for all.

If you have a passion for food, we invite you to patronize any of our Town dining establishments.
