Dear Sir,

We here at BHW Ltd have just received some disappointing news. While we encourage everyone to be excited for the upcoming Bermuda Heroes Weekend, we ask that those of you defacing public and private property in an attempt to save a space for the parade immediately stop.

Doing this is illegal and the authorities in charge have clearly expressed to us that they will be pursuing all and every corrective measure available to them. Now, we want everyone to have a good time, but we want you all to do so without defacing any property.

Hard-working staff put in a lot of energy to keep the landscape of Bermuda Land Development Company property looking amazing and inviting to all, and when it is defaced extra effort has to be employed to remedy the unfortunate vandalism.

It is all of our jobs to keep Bermuda beautiful, so we ask you our loyal patrons to do your part and not mark your spots before the parade. There is room for all, once we are kind and courteous to one another. Let us all continue to work together to make this Bermuda Heroes Weekend one of the best ever, even as we maintain our magnificent island throughout this celebration.

Our team know we can count on you all to do the right thing. We thank you in advance for keeping things clean and we look forward to seeing all of you wonderful, civic-minded Bermudians at all of our upcoming events.
