Introduction: The society of the Friends of St Helena was founded at an inaugural meeting in March 1988 with two aims:
To provide information about the island of St Helena, including its history, culture, environment and current affairs; and also to provide practical support to the St Helenian community.
We provide information through this web site, our magazines and in talks given at our meetings. In pursuit of the second aim, we have supported an Island charity for the physically disabled and the revitalisation and ongoing development of the Island’s Museum, opened on 21 May 2002, on the site of the Old Power House near Jacob’s Ladder in Jamestown. Most recently, we donated money to the High Knoll Restoration appeal.
