    Isn’t greenfeild lane in Somerset..can we get these parishes correct..Sandys Parish ends where Somerset road begins.

    • uncool says:

      Just in case people don’t know, Somerset isn’t a parish, it is a Town in Sandys Parish. Just saying thats all….

      • cool... says:

        @uncool–thanks for clarification, cos I wasn’t sure where Somerset starts and Sandy’s parish ends,..just thinking where exactly does Sandys parish begin and where does Dockyard begin? any answers for history 101?Yes Somerset being the village would encompass exactly what areas?

    • part of the solution says:

      Somerset is not a parish. Its an area within Sandys Parish. Sandys Parish begins close to the road leading to Pompano and encompasses everywhere up to and including Dockyard.

    • SMH says:

      Somerset is not a parish.

    • Justice not Peace says:

      It is both in the parish of Sandys in the Somerset area. Somerset begins going west from Somerset Bridge
      and ends before going over Watford Bridge. Somerset road is the main road between these two points.

    • YouRwrong says:

      Somerset is not a parish

    • FACTS says:

      Somerset is in Sandys Parish! Somerset isn’t a parish dummy! Smh

      • smh says:

        Please don’t call people dummy just because they don’t know something that you know…that’s why ‘you’ ask questions. Besides, they may know something that you don’t know like – there are no dumb questions.

    • Well I never says:

      Get it right now, Somerset is in Sandy’s Parish

    • I wonder,, says:

      oh my God,, What am I reading,, Somerset is an island,, lol, Its the mass of land from Somerset Bridge to Watford Bridge.. Sandys Parish is made up of a number of islands.. It ecompasses the remainder of the main land up to Somerset Bridge, Somerset Island, Watford Island, Ireland Island South and Ireland Island North.. Ever notice those bridges on the way Dockyard?? lol

  2. Sanchez says:

    Perhaps they are just testing their tools to ensure that it doesn’t jam when needed? My observation here only…

    • #Got to be kiddn me says:

      Good obsevation. My guess is its some new machines getting tested..

  3. Terry says:

    No such parish as Somerset.
    Check you history.
    Sandys is the name. Somerset is too widley used. It was a villiage and still is.
    Now for the occupants….thats another story.

  4. Are you for real? says:

    Are you serious…..get your facts straight mate. Somerset is not a Parish. Really…..

  5. Y-Gurl says:

    Maybe if the police were as “high profile” in these areas as much as they are chasing egg throwing teens these incidents might be less

    • Wheerzs Waldo? says:

      If you ignore the small crimes, the eventually turn into bigger crimes. If parents won’t police their kids , the police must! They chase egg throwing teens because people have called the police to report eggs being thrown at them. I wonder if you would feel the same way if it was you in your car or come that gets egged.

  6. Bliss says:

    Cool you need a history lesson, Somerset Road is in Sandys Parish, Somerset is not a Parish.

    • cool... says:

      @Bliss–I admit I do need a history lesson, but I know its ‘somerset road’ still don’t know where Sandy’s parish begins and ends? wasn’t sure can you explain?

      • ABM says:

        Sandy’s begins where Pompano Is. Thats right where Port Royal Golf Course ends and meets up with the old Eve’s Cycle place on Middle Road. And Sandy’s Parish ends right at the tip of Dockyard.

        • cool... says:

          Thank you so much for that, please excuse my naivete, but where is the tip of Dockyard and since it is not a parish shouldn’t Dockyard be included in SandysParish?..anyone that can assist, thank you..I’m just wondering whether all portions of Bermuda land are divided up into Parishes inclusively..otherwise Dockyard stands alone? For Postalreasons I am inquiring..

      • blazer says:

        your best bet is to go on landvaluation

  7. The way it is says:

    I cannot believe what I am reading.Gunshots fired and folks are more concerned about fighting a non issue. Maybe BerNews could solve the problem by simply saying “ANOTHER SHOOTING IN BERMUDA”

    • Praying hands says:

      Couldn’t agree with you more. These small minded people arguing over Parishes. Instead of worrying that we are no longer safe in BERMUDA!

    • Autumn Fire says:

      Exactly, I almost forgot what the headline/news article was about after ready Sandys, Somerset…blame it all on Sandy comin’ stirring up trouble…

    • Honestly says:

      I was thinking the same thing! The point is that a gun was fired! Lord help us all! The objective of the story not where Sandys or Somerset starts and ends!

    • SMH says:

      I agree!

  8. For Real says:

    i mean we have a fire arm discharge and we are more concerned about the parish. i dont care if it somereset or st joe. dont we all agree enough is enough? Just saying yo.

    • Will says:

      yeah but a shooting is the norm..what is breaking news is that some of Bermuda’s inhabitants know nothing about the tiny island we live on…21sq miles and you cant get it right..smh

  9. liquor lot a box says:

    Ok don’t need everybody in Bermuda to say that its not a parish!!!

    • Agree says:

      I thought I was the only person thinking this. People need to calm down, it’s just not that important.

  10. TJ says:

    You damn idiots worrying about if it is a parish or not…. real wankers!

  11. Just Us says:

    If you don’t put it straight it will never get rectified… Now go and teach the younger folk about their own country…SMH It’s always a big mouth who gets it wrong from jump. Maybe this is why caps are being fired…

  12. Kathy says:

    Oh dear, thank goodness there was NO injuries or death or innocent people hurt in Sandys/Somerst. Come on people get real here geesh.

  13. life in a daze says:

    i’ll settle happened in the West End ,,,the wild wild West !

  14. Woods says:

    No injuries…did anybody check to see if the cows and goats are ok I hope they weren’t being used for target practice

  15. Truth is killin' me... says:

    Igorant people…go argue over if the sand is pinker in the eastern or the western beaches…igorants!

  16. Bum-Bye says:

    Did Sandy’s win the Cup Match or Somerset!!!

    • cool... says:

      @bUMbYE—-EXACTLY!!! I know I need a history lesson on this, but I’m not the only shame in my game…If Sandys is the parish in the west than why isn’t the parish of St.GEORGES VS SANDYS in cupmatch?

      • Teacher says:

        Sandys is the parish, Somerset is the town. In the east, St George’s is the parish and its also the name of the town. So Cup Match is town against town, not parish against parish.

        • curious minds says:

          The town is ‘St George ‘ No ‘s’
          But does that apply to the parish as well ? Maps do not make it clear it seems . Is it the parish of St George or St George’s Parish ?

          As for the ignorance over Somerset and Sandy’s .. just mind boggling.

          But as was pointed out earlier unless these errors or misunderstandings are corrected (and as far as I’m concerned it goes for grammar as well) then the wrong information eventually becomes accepted as fact. And there’s already way too much stupid out there.

  17. Jamudian says:

    OH MY GOD!!! People are sooooo stupid!! Why is everyone arguing about sandys vs somerset? Who cares? This is the same mentallity that created these shootings!! On a little island 21sqr miles(lets not argue about the size now) There is this big debate about areas and territories! At the end of the day bermuda is just a little speck. Everyone should come together instead of fighting over east n west bs!

  18. Fedor says:

    No – the fact that this fool is probably Bermudian and does not know that Somerset is not a parash is EVERYTHING that is wrong with our island. Uneducated young fools committing acts of terrorism. At this point it would be impossible to find the starting point of this crisis, however, at least we can agree that the more educated a population is, the less violent they tend to be. And that starts with reading, writing arithmetic and knowing your fu*&ing parishes!!

  19. Fedor says:

    …parish (sorry).

  20. timsrty says:

    i thought somerset was a parish, not that i give a sh&@t,,,,
    the bredren should have put it to his head first

  21. timsrty says:

    these bermudians are so proud to have a small amount of knowledge about something, then they can go run tell as many people as they can so they can feel proud of themselves even if its as stupid as wether somerset is a friggin parish or not,,, living on such a small island can do that,
    so many are like this,,sad bunch

  22. Concerned young person says:

    Funny how yu call yourselves grown ups, and don’t even know a parish from a road, what skool did you go? Stop arguing, and make a difference how about that for a change? Sounds familiar.

  23. Another gun, another shooting, another day in Bermuda. Yawn.

  24. After reading everyones comments is like reading letters from mid atlantic
    Patients. Tryna clarify the difference from a parish and
    A village. You all be insulting eachother like a
    Mother f#@k@r not knowing that your friend posted it
