As we celebrate the 177th Emancipation Anniversary, we want to take this opportunity to acknowledge the sacrifices of our ancestors. There are a number of activities planned to commemorate this important occasion in the village, and we encourage villagers and friends to participate. Details of events organized by the Buxton First of August Movement can be found on page 2 of this month’s Buxton-Friendship Express newsletter.

Our 5th annual Heritage Week programme for students will be held during the week that begins on August 9th. A list of students entering secondary school this year is recorded on page 10. These students, and anyone else who may be eligible, are asked to register promptly for the Empowerment Workshop, Edutainment Day Trip and other activities, as well as to receive their backpacks and school supplies.  

Registration for the Heritage Week programme can also be done at the Children’s Art Workshop that is being held every day of this week at Friendship Primary School. The programme is being conducted by Mr. Jonathan Azore (Fury) and co-sponsored by Buxton-Friendship Heritage Fund and CIMBUX. Classes begin at 9:00 a.m. and run until 12:00 noon, Monday-Thursday. On Friday, the children will show off their work at an exhibition to be held from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The workshop is open to all schoolchildren, residing in Buxton and its environs. Free snacks and refreshments are served daily.
