LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY 26 JUNE 2014
Motion for Adjournment Speech By Dr the Hon Barry Elsby
BE: Mr Speaker, Honourable members, I will be brief. I would like to associate myself with the comments made by the Honourable Michael Poole in regards to Armed Forces Day. I think that was set up in the UK to make people more aware of the debt they owe to the Forces. Falkland Islanders do not need any reminding of the debt of gratitude they owe to her Majesty’s Forces but it will be good to see the Armed Forces Flag flying alongside our own flag on victory green.
The only other point I would like to bring up is to say good-bye to Rebecca Roxborough who has been our early years’ co-ordinator for some months now. She leaves the Islands next week. In the time she has been here she has made tremendous strides in developing the early years mainly focusing around the nurseries in our community and she so inspired all those nurseries to develop the service they offer, to take on extra training and I wish her well in her future. We are presently looking for a replacement and I hope we will be able to find someone locally because I wouldn’t wish to see the tremendous strides that have been made under her guidance to be lost.
