(CNS Local Life): The environmental group, Sustainable Cayman, is commemorating the upcoming visit of Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, with a “community beach celebration” at Smith Barcadere, Thursday, 28 March, from 10am-noon. The organisation said the family event, being held on the public holiday declared in honour of the royal visit, was a way to thank Prince Charles for his “outstanding commitment as a champion for environmental causes around the world”.

In a press release, the group said the prince, who will be visiting the Sister Islands while the beach party is being held, “has been an environmental leader for over 40 years, using his unique position to champion action for a sustainable future”, and noted his sustainability initiatives included The Prince’s Rainforest Project, Accounting for Sustainability and The Prince of Wales’s Charitable Foundation.

Camilla will be attending various events on Grand Cayman, so the beach celebration will be “royal-free”.

In keeping with its green philosophy, Sustainable Cayman suggests people bring reusable bottles and reef-friendly sunscreen, along with swimwear, cameras and smart phones.

The organisation has created hand-painted up-cycled cardboard signs supporting local grassroots environmental-awareness initiatives, and these will be available for “photo opportunities to commemorate this historic occasion”.

    Have they applied for and received permission to hold a public gathering, as required by law?
