October 14th, 2009
An official ceremony will be taking place, as Cicely Grell Hull and Dora Stevens will witness the Nevis Netball complex renamed in their honour on Saturday, October 14th, 2009 at 4pm.
The naming ceremony will commemorate the civic achievements of Mrs. Grell Hull and Mrs. Stevens, by recognizing their sterling contributions to Nevis society.
Premier of Nevis, the Hon. Joseph Parry and his Nevis Reformation Party- led Cabinet approved the renaming of the Netball complex earlier this year and the decision was formally brought to the public on September 16th 2009 on National Heroes Day.
The event was held at the Occasions Centre at Pinney’s Road, where eight persons who contributed to the development of Nevis received public recognition.
In tribute to the selfless contributions of several noteworthy sons and daughters of the soil, the Ministry of Community Development in the Nevis Island Administration has decided that a number of important landmarks would be renamed in their honour.
In addition to the renaming of the Netball complex, separate ceremonies commemorating the renaming of various landmarks in Nevis will take place in the near future.
Grove Park will be renamed the Elquemedo Willett Park and the Old Treasury Building will be renamed the Arthur Evelyn Building. The St.Thomas Pre School will be known as the Inez France Pre School, while the St. John’s Primary School will be dubbed the Elizabeth Pemberton Primary School. The supply office building at Pinney’s Industrial site will be renamed in honour of Mr. Levi Morton and the Island Main Road from Zion to Market Shop will become the Ural Swanston Highway.
