We were well prepared for the bad weather and had taken all necessary steps to ‘batten down the hatches’“This included removing all outdoor furniture and bringing all our vehicles indoors, as well as ensuring we had adequate food provisions for everyone.” “We are really proud of our staff and residents, everyone has pulled together exceptionally well. While we still have some work to do, it’s great to see how quickly we are returning to ‘business as usual’.”Flights and ferry services resumed on Monday this week and most activities have restarted on the Island.
