I was delighted to recently visit Plymouth’s Mayflower Steps, to meet those working on the commemorations, which will celebrate centuries of shared UK and American history and promote Plymouth to the world in 2020. Anniversaries such as Mayflower 400 play a vital role in proving that the UK is open for business. Plymouth leads the Mayflower 400 programme, aligning 11 core destinations in England (Austerfield & Doncaster, Boston, Dartmouth, Gainsborough, Harwich, Immingham, Scrooby & Babworth, Rotherhithe, Southampton & Worcestershire) with wider national and international partners in Holland (Leiden) and the United States (Plymouth, Massachusetts) The programme will deliver a world class series of events, public art and wider content that will commemorate this exceptional voyage and provide a major ongoing impact across the partnership, knitting together communities, inspiring creativity and culture, driving economic growth, and promoting understanding and education The Mayflower left Plymouth on 16 September 1620 (according to the Gregorian calendar), arriving 56 days later on 11 November in Cape Cod on the East Coast of the United States. Approximately 35 million Americans today trace their ancestry to a Mayflower passenger.Initiatives that encourage tourists to travel beyond London and see what the whole UK has to offer are a key focus of the Government’s Tourism Action Plan.ENDSNotes to Editors This has the potential to have a similar effect on the city as the UK City of Culture 2017 had in Hull, and will have on Coventry in 2021. That’s why we fully support the commemorations, which will play a major part in ensuring a strong legacy for Plymouth as a tourist destination”. Tudor Evans, Leader of Plymouth City Council, said: We are delighted that the Government has recognised the opportunity that Mayflower 400 presents not just in 2020 as part of the main anniversary commemoration but the legacy that can continue as the whole East coast of America turns 400 over the next ten years. Over 25 million Americans are descended from the passengers and crew of the ship, including five previous American Presidents. We are very thankful of the support from VisitEngland, VisitBritain and our wider partnership in helping us to make the most of this exciting anniversary. Plymouth has a long and proud global heritage, I am excited that our city is leading a national and international partnership to commemorate the world changing endeavours of the Mayflower Pilgrims. It’s great to get this additional financial commitment from national government for Plymouth and the UK partners. Amanda Lumley, Executive Director of Destination Plymouth, said: The Government has announced an additional £250,000 grant in support of the Mayflower 400 commemorations, to mark the 400th anniversary on 16th September 2020 of the Mayflower sailing.The funding will be used to promote and encourage American visitors to join the anniversary in England and to develop a ‘digital Mayflower trail’ which will bring to life individual stories, heritage and culture of each location involved in the commemorations. This is expected to be launched in November 2019.The sailing of the Mayflower is celebrated by many in the United States as the beginning of a national legacy, and in the UK as the beginning of an enduring alliance.Plymouth is leading a national partnership of 11 destinations within England which are currently developing a year-long programme of cultural events and activities as part of the anniversary. Plymouth itself is undergoing a major transformation that will bring in commercial and cultural opportunities to the city on a scale not seen since its rebuilding after the end of the Second World War.The Mayflower 400 commemorations will form the main part of a wider, year-long national and international cultural programme connecting England, the United States, the native American Nation and the Netherlands in the four-nation commemoration.The announcement follows a recent visit to Plymouth’s historic waterfront area by Michael Ellis, Minister for Arts, Heritage and Tourism, where details of the cultural, maritime, military, heritage and sporting programmes and events were presented to him.Michael Ellis, Minister for Arts, Heritage and Tourism, said:

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Buffalo District recently awarded a contract to Ryba Marine Construction to repair a portion of the Buffalo South breakwater.The 10,200-foot Buffalo South breakwater protects the Buffalo Harbor and nearby dredged sediment confined disposal facilities.The south breakwater is exposed to deep water wave and ice action, which has caused a 1,000-foot section at the south end to breakdown and unravel.“Navigation is one of the Corps of Engineers’ earliest Civil Works missions,” said USACE, Buffalo District Commander Lt. Col. Jason Toth. “The investment to repair a degraded reach of the Buffalo South breakwater will ensure safe navigation for vessels and protect the harbor.”According to the Corps, they will use work plan funding from fiscal years 2017 and 2018 for the repair project.The awarded contract covers 325 feet of the 1,000 feet of critical repair. There are two options that could repair another 225 feet of the breakwater under the current contract, if fiscal year 2019 work plan funding is received. The remaining 450 feet of critical repair could be funded in the fiscal year 2019 work plan or a future work plan.
Hubler’s plane apparently clipped the back of Somes’ plane before crashing. Somes was able to land his damaged aircraft, race officials said. Two judges on the ground also were injured but there was no immediate word on their condition, the Reno Gazette-Journal reported on its Web site. One refused medical treatment, the newspaper said. Competing in the Forumla One class, Hubler was flying a Cassutt III M single-seat plane named “Mariah,” which is designed for pylon racing and aerial acrobatics. Hubler started competing in the Reno races in 1984. During Thursday’s first heat, he reached a top speed of 259 mph, according to the air races’ Web site. Two pilots were killed in separate accidents on Tuesday and Thursday. RENO, Nev. – Two airplanes collided in the air Friday at the Reno National Championship Air Races, killing one pilot and injuring a Simi Valley pilot in the third fatal crash there in four days. Five-time defending champion Gary Hubler, 51, Caldwell, Idaho, was killed in the crash shortly after 9:30 a.m. at the Stead Airport just north of Reno, race officials said. The pilot of the other plane involved in the accident, Jason Somes of Simi Valley, was taken to Renown Regional Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. A friend said he was being treated for an eye injury. Hubler’s death marked the 18th fatality in the 44-year history of the air races and prompted the suspension of the competition the rest of Friday. Race officials said they did not know whether the event would continue through the weekend as scheduled or not. Brad Morehouse of Afton, Wyo., was “killed instantly” when his jet crashed about 2:45 p.m. Tuesday, touching off a small brush fire along the runway, said Michael Houghton, president of the air races. Morehouse, co-owner of Afton Flight Service in Wyoming, was flying an L-39 Albatross he named “Dino Juice,” a jet often used for military flight training. He was flying in the second heat of the jet class competition. He had finished fourth in Wednesday’s qualifying round, reaching a maximum speed of 504 mph, race officials said. The cause of that crash was under investigation but race officials said the initial indication was Morehouse may have gotten caught in the wake of a jet he was tailing. Houghton said he expected the races to resume on Friday. “I don’t see any reason why they shouldn’t race tomorrow,” Houghton told reporters at a news conference at the airport. “That is what Brad Morehouse would have wanted us to do.” Steve Dari, a pilot from Lemon Grove, was killed when his biplane stalled shortly after takeoff during a practice run at the air races on Tuesday. His fatal crash had been the first at the races since 2002.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
