An update from the island!

It s certainly been a busy few days on Necker Island! Since the fire in the early hours of Monday 22nd August it s certainly been a unique Necker experience. But in true Virgin spirit everyone has pitched in to get our magical island back up and running as fast as we can.

We have so many people to thank for their support and well wishes. Here in the BVIs, from local businesses that swiftly stepped in to help, from local hotels & resorts, the BVI fire brigade and fellow islanders donating anything they could to help us out. We ve received clothes, toiletries and even food to keep us going! Our crew from our yacht Necker Belle stepped in too, taking our guests sailing for a day to get away from it all, and sailing to local harbours to help us stock up on those all essential items.

Our incredible team of 60 keep amazing us daily with their courage and determination to get Necker up and running whilst we ve been overwhelmed by the global messages of support and goodwill flooding in over what s been a whirlwind few days.

We re still without full IT & communications so forgive us for not responding to every note and if it seems we may be ignoring you!

Again thanks for all the support; we ll keep you updated with what s happening on Necker and the plans to rebuild The Great House.

If you d like to share your messages, photos or memories of Necker please email us.
