The National Choir carolling at Government House

(CNS Local Life): Governor Martyn Roper and his wife, Elisabeth, recently hosted a Christmas carol party at Government House, their last official function for 2018. Those invited to the 18 December event passed by the residence’s eight-foot Norway spruce Christmas tree and a tiny hand-knitted nativity scene (a Roper family favourite), on their way to the beachside patio.

Introducing the Cayman National Choir, the governor said in a press release that the evening had been arranged to invite many people who had never been to Government House before. Roper added that he is eager to extend similar invitations to people from all walks of life who have not previously visited the residence, and urged guests to suggest ways in which he could achieve this objective.

He also thanked the people of the Cayman Islands for making him and his wife feel so welcome in his first few months in office, the press release said.

Among the carols sung by choir and guests were “Once in Royal David’s City”, “Ding Dong Merrily on High” and “Silent Night”. The Ropers’ children, Matthew and Jessica, who are spending their first Christmas in Grand Cayman, helped serve drinks and food.
