To mark this year’s International Coastal Clean Up Day (ICC), for the fifth year
in a row, the Four Seasons Resort Nevis’ own Director of Sports, MacKee
France, assembled a voluntary team to clean up various sectors of selected
beaches. This year, 55 staff members and family came out and took part in

macaroni pie, rice, salad, veggie dishes, and cookies. Live music was
provided by the Eclectic Band, with twelve-year-old Rojan Claxton (son of
Mauricia Claxton, the Resort’s Pro Shop attendant) on the steel pan.
“It was a true pleasure to see Sonia Williams from Room Service
judiciously flipping burgers on the grill.” says MacKee. “As for myself,
I was having a blast in my attempts to honour dozens of simultaneous food
