SOCIAL SCENE: Fun-filled milestone


Share post:

Long-time friends joined the family of Hyacinth Cummins to celebrate her 90th birthday on January 4.
Hyacinth first came to Barbados from her native Trinidad to work as a nurse. Through her profession she had met a former Premier of Barbados, Hugh Gordon Cummins, whose son Dr Gordon Cummins she later married.   
The two would eventually divorce but they had five children, including Alissandra Cummins, director of the Barbados Museum and Historical society, and graphic artist and photographer William Cummins, both of whom were there excited about their mother’s milestone.
Hyacinth founded the League Of Friends, which brings cheer to patients of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. She was particularly happy to see her sister Helen Louisy who flew in from Calgary for the reception held at Colleton Great House, St Peter.
Also among the guests were Sir Frederick and Lady Smith, Pamela Hope, Amor and Elliott Mottley, Daphne and Hank Jiggetts, and Margaret and Beaumont Banfield.
