Team Street Safe Community Outreach Worker and event coordinator Gina Spence said, “We have received great feedback from the community. In fact they are already asking when is the next event.

“Watching the children play and have fun and the interaction between the adults was really wonderful! Our community deserve to celebrate all the good things that are happening,like the re-opening of the One Stop Variety store and restaurant family business. We wish them great success.

“They also deserve to enjoy each other. I believe we accomplished our goal to celebrate the strength of the community and to encourage a sense of community pride and cohesiveness during some really difficult times.

“We want to thank our community partners and all of the helping agencies who partnered with us Bermuda Coalition, Mirrows,Bermuda Police Action Team and Evening Light Pentecostal Youth Minister Shayne Scott and the congregation.”
