BEST: Humble Unsung Hero Celebrates 74th Birthday


One week ago today, a small, intimate gathering was held to celebrate the 74th birthday of Stuart Jackson Hayward, who was born in Bermuda on May 19th, in 1942.

Despite heavy rain, several invited guests made their way to Bermuda Environmental Sustainability Taskforce (BEST) offices on Cedar Avenue.

Undeterred by the inclement weather that day, they came to extend personal birthday greetings to the man who, for more than 40 years has “built a reputation as an environmental activist and educator”.

Donations for a major BEST fundraiser to celebrate another milestone are being accepted until June 10th in honour of Stuart’s birthday.

A spokesperson said: “Stuart has devoted himself to improving the quality of life for all Bermudians. He has devoted himself to improving the quality of life for all Bermudians.”

As head of the environmental watchdog group known as the “protector of open spaces” in Bermuda, she said Stuart is fond of saying: “We walk and talk softly but carry a fairly big stick.”

Formed in 2007, BEST is a registered charity and limited liability company committed “to preserve and enhance the quality of life in Bermuda for present and future generations by engaging with the community to advocate for sustainable management and development of the physical, social and economic environments”.
