We celebrate their resilience, commitment to their studies and are pleased we are able to make a small financial contribution to their future goals.

“The Paget Parish Council is fortunate to be able to do beneficial work and provide scholarships for Parish residents through the management of and revenues gained from the Red Hole dock berths and boatyard. Legislated in 1954 as the Paget Waterlot Act, this property, which was generously left in trust to the Council by the late Mr. Onley and Mrs. Cornelia Jones to provide waterfront access to Paget residents, forms the funding basis that allows the Council to do beneficial work in the Parish.

“The Paget Parish Council is a Government appointed body comprised of 12 members who are Paget residents and serve the community for the benefit of all residents of Paget. The nine Parish Councils fall under the Ministry of Community Affairs and Sports, and follow the mandate as set out in the Parish Council Act 1971.

“The Council encourages eligible students to apply for the Paget Parish Undergraduate Scholarship or the Robert J. Wright Scholarship each spring, through the national portal, www.BermudaScholarships.com. Annual deadlines are June 30.

“Residents who have questions are invited to contact the Council via www.PagetCouncil.com or email paget.parish@outlook.com.”
