This Summer at the St. Christopher National Trust and Museum, it was all about discovering how telling stories of our heritage could impact the lives of our young children who were delighted to take a trip to the Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park.
On Saturday 17th August, 2019, parents and children, along with four staff members of the National Trust hopped unto the bus of Grey’s Tours around 9:45 am for a historical adventure.
Mr. Thenford Grey took them on a journey to discover the Western side of St. Kitts, leading up to Brimstone Hill. It was a very exciting and informative tour, with the children posing questions and taking note of different interesting sites alone the island’s Main Road, such as former estates and old sugar mills that enthralled the young ‘ tourists ’.
At Brimstone Hill, they watched a brief film about the history of the Fortress and climbed up the steps to the higher level court where they enjoyed an educational tour by Mr. Assif Woodley, the Museum Attendant.
They had loads of fun on this tour! Their enthusiasm reflects the motto of the St. Christopher National Trust, that it doesn’t matter the age nor the nationality, “Our heritage belongs to all of us!”. The team at the Trust says a big thank you to the staff at the Brimstone Hill Fortress, Mr. Thenford Grey, our two major sponsors KOSCAB/Dasani water and Harpers Office Depot and of course the parents and children for making it great.
