Mr. Philip Rankine will be honoured with the Cayman Islands Certificate and Badge of Honour for his services to the financial services industry, and in particular the Board of Cayman Airways.

The annual Garden Party will be held from 10.00 a.m. on the front lawn of the Governor’s residence, Government House.  In keeping with tradition, the Garden Party is open to the public. There will be entertainment with light food and drinks.

Officials note that a dress code of semi-formal daywear (or your Sunday best) is enforced for these celebrations. Hats are optional.

“These Ceremonies represent one of the undisputed highlights of the islands’ social calendar,” said Meloney Syms, head of the Protocol Office.

“It will be an opportunity for everyone to pay the respects to our Queen and to celebrate the achievements of our homegrown role models Mr. Watler and Mr. Rankine. Both are prominent members of our society and are deserving of these honours.”
