Insightful First Trip

Visiting UK Minister, Mr. Henry Bellingham shares his impressions about Grand Cayman with participants at a cultural reception held in his honour at Pedro St. James.

The week starting Monday, 30 April, GIS Spotlight follows the UK Overseas Territories minister's first Cayman tour; delves into genealogy and revisits a milestone groundbreaking.

Visiting Minister Mr. Henry Bellingham managed to pack a lot of activities into his short trip to Grand Cayman last week and GIS Spotlight was there to capture some of the action.

Join us in highlights of the visit. Learn from the Governor about the nature of the visit and hear the Minister summarize his accomplishments on this trip to what he terms an "amazing place". One highpoint was meeting people.

Next, we show you how to travel back in time to trace your ancestry. Go with us to the National Archive where a rich treasure is available for Caymanians who want to build their family tree. See if and how the helpful staff at the Archive can assist you in your quest.

Finally, we take you back to an exciting new beginning for youth rehabilitation. Join us at the ground breaking for the custom designed CI Youth Centre in Fairbanks and hear about the new programme's therapeutic emphasis for at-risk youth.

Learn from authorities about the approach on rehabilitation instead of punishment and imprisonment for youth who have stumbled on the path to productive membership in society.

Produced by GIS Marketing and Communications, GIS Spotlight highlights government's services and solutions regarding issues that concern and affect you. The weekly programme airs on Cayman27 at 8 p.m. on Mondays and 6 p.m. on Saturdays.
