Fotbot Visit to Anguilla
Our Chief Executive, Philip Smith, visited Anguilla last month. During the visit Philip conducted visits to the Anguilla Parliament and government buildings of interest - as well as looking at the new jetty at Sandy Ground and the new harbour building under construction at Blowing Point - both projects are funded by the UK Government.
During visits and island walkabouts, Philip spoke to many residents about how they feel towards the United Kingdom - which was roundly positive - many saw the UK as the motherland who protected them during COVID and were first on-site to assist following Hurricane Irma. Residents saw the UK as a destination to send their younger relatives for education. Many islanders would like to see a stronger UK presence and more UK tourists on the island. Philip noted that Anguilla is a truly beautiful island and can't wait to take more FOTBOT members to see it.
