My summer memories in Anguilla are flooded with days that were filled with leaping off the wharf in Sandy Ground.
Born Anguillian, Amelia worked her way up from being the first-ever employee at the newly conceived Tourism Offices (in 1978) to ultimately becoming the Director of Tourism at the Anguilla Tourist Board. Anguillian by nurture, Mimi is a native (bilingual) French Canadian, who spent many years as the Executive Director of the Anguilla Hotel and Tourism Association. In their complimentary public and private sector roles they cemented an enduring friendship and professional relationship based on a love of their island home and mutual support of Anguilla’s innovative “High value/Low volume” tourism plan.
First there was Batman and Robin, then there was Thelma and Louise and now there is Bonnie and … Gayle. Trudy Nixon hangs out with Anguilla’s latest power duo, Bonnie Bloom and Gayle Pemberton, partners in Kokoon, the island’s latest Real Estate and Villa Rental Agency.
