I shop locally in Cayman wherever possible and am happy to support local business, however there are some items which I sometimes have to source from overseas, and most of the time these items are delivered via parcel post at the Airport Post Office. The issue is, though, that it is a completely hit and […]

Why haven’t the NRA responded to my suggestions?

| 11/06/2019

I have written to the NRA a couple of times through their feedback email address and on Facebook and have not received a response. I made a suggestion to possibly help the traffic issue leaving town and heading east in the evenings, which is getting increasingly worse. My suggestion was that from 4:30pm onwards add […]

How is Cayman protected from receiving counterfeit items?

| 07/06/2019

Would you please enquire if any sort of inspections are in place to catch counterfeit goods from entering Cayman, specifically everyday items such as dish soap and trash bags? I’m convinced that I purchased name brand items in one of our grocery stores that are clearly inferior in quality to the same brand purchased overseas. […]

The work the NRA has done along the Linford Pierson Highways is great and has made a huge difference in the traffic jams along that stretch of road. But it doesn’t do anything to alleviate the bottleneck at each end – the roundabout at Kings Sports Centre and the mini-roundabout where the LPH meets Bobby […]

How is the decision made to deport someone?

| 08/05/2019

When someone on a work permit is convicted of a crime here, why don’t they get automatically deported after they complete their sentence? I have read articles on expats committing crimes where they are ordered to be deported once they get out of prison and others where that doesn’t seem to be the case. What […]

How do you request a new bus stop?

| 15/04/2019

Health City is going to build a cancer centre. Is it going to have a specially designed independent sewage treatment plant that includes disinfection and residue removal zones?
