To the English Speaking Residents Association (ESRA) who celebrated their 30th birthday this week. It is an association which has grown from strength to strength and plays a key role in expatriate life on the island. Also, ESRA raises a considerable amount of money every year for local charities. With a membership of many hundreds and with plenty of new projects on the horizon ESRA has a very bright future. Congratulations to all involved in making this association so successful.
