miss bermuda vivienne hollis 3Take a step back in history, and watch a video of ten Miss Bermuda winners from the 1970′s.

Video includes; 1970 Margaret Hill, 1971 Rene Furbert, 1972 Helen Brown, 1973 Judy Richards, 1974 Joyce de Rosa, 1975 Donna Wright, 1976 Vivienne Hollis, 1977 Connie Frith, 1978 Madeleine Joell and 1979 Gina Swainson

Our video starts with Margaret Hill who competed in the 1970 Universe winning the Miss Photogenic award, and ends with Gina Swainson who competed in the 1979 Universe placing 1st runner up and going onto win the 1979 Miss World.

As they were extracted from video footage 30-40 years old, the clips are very low quality for which we do apologize!

      It is with sorrow that I let you know that Judy Richards (aka Nuri Richards) passed away this very week. If you had the opportunity to meet her, you know that she was a shining star and will be missed.

      Sad to say, Judy Richards passed away this past Friday morning after battling cancer for a couple of years. She was my cousin.

    We have no clue Ms Bell, sorry to say..

    In fact we are pretty desperate for info to be able to record the whole Miss Bermuda history – as it isn’t recorded really. We are scraping up bits and pieces as we can..

  3. Angeline Butler says:

    Thanks for that. By the way is Vivienne Hollis the weather lady on VSB?

  4. Harry says:

    Yes indeed it is Vivienne from VSB!

  5. bernews says:

    Thanks for noting that Ms Butler! We just checked, and like Harry said, the “Viviennes” are one and the same. I think we may have to embarrass her and do a whole separate post on that, as we actually have 5/6 photos of her – she looked extremely nice..

  6. Debra Tucker says:

    WOW.. What a treat, I appluad those corageous women. I would like to see a float depicting those persons in all areas of pageants, sports etc. who made a positive contribution and who were ambassadors for this country in the upcoming Bda heritage Day Parade.
