St. Christopher, the first Caribbean island to be permanently settled by both the English and the French (who shared the island between 1627 and 1713 ), was a model and a springboard for English and French colonialism in the Caribbean and elsewhere.
 
'Federation’s oldest Trading Company partners with History and Heritage Month'

Brimstone Hill 1782 Siege Re-enactment Pvt

"It was with great pleasure that the S.L Horsford family partnered with the History and Heritage Committee this year to host the annual Social Evening for Senior Citizens, held as part of the History and Heritage Month of Activities.

For two hours on Sunday 23 February some eighty plus seniors along with a few care-givers, officials and volunteers, entertained each other in songs of praise, shared their knowledge of herbal remedies for common ailments (in keeping with the theme this year) and reminisced on the tea meetings and services of song which were popular entertainments in their youthful days. The programme was led by Sub-committee chair, Sheila Morris and guitarist / raconteur / cultural researcher, Creighton Pencheon.

The History and Heritage Month of Activities, now in its 9th year, is an initiative of the Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park Society which, with the participation of the Nevis Historical and Conservation Society, the St. Christopher National Trust, the UWI Open Campus and
other agencies and volunteers, seeks to promote greater awareness of and celebrate the history and heritage of our country.

The Senior Citizens Social Evening, at which refreshments are provided, takes place at Matheson House (headquarters of the Brimstone Hill Society) in collaboration with the Departments of Social & Community Development and Education of St.Kitts."
