ICCI at the NatWest Island Games Opening Ceremony – #Jersey2015
We were thrilled to attend Saturday’s Opening Ceremony of the 2015 NatWest Island Games, held in Jersey.
The games bring together teams from 24 islands – nearly 3000 competitors – in a week of sports running until 3rd July. We’re proud to be sponsoring the Games’ Village Centrepiece – an impressive float designed by Battle-of-Flowers champions The Optimists Club.
The opening ceremony was a brilliant start to the games, with athletes from each island ceremoniously adding water from their homeland to a ‘bachin’ – a pan traditionally used to make Jersey’s famous black butter. Rachel Hayden also sang ‘Beautiful Jersey’ with accompaniment from the Games Choir and Fleur de Lys Signing Choir. It was a beautiful atmosphere and one we were delighted to be a part of.
