Bermuda’s impressive showing at the Carifta Games, which saw the island net some 27 swimming and track & field medals, Mark Anderson’s cross-island walk for a good cause, and footballer Rai Simons signing a professional contract with Chesterfield FC were all some of the positive news stories from the past week.
