Dart Hospitality response to COVID-19

Statement on current George Town Landfill blaze

As the Cayman Island Fire Service (CIFS) works to contain the large fire that broke out at the George Town Landfill over the weekend and was escalated by strong winds, Dart continues to monitor the situation. 


Upcycling at the community shed

Whether you call it "upcycling," "repurposing," or "creative reuse," the results are the same: Through hard work and imagination, items that would otherwise head to the landfill are given new life. The men and women at the Community Shed are masters of turning one person’s trash into another’s treasure.


Acts of kindness that make a difference

Since 2006, Cayman’s Acts of Random Kindness — better known as ARK — has endeavoured to change lives for the better in the Cayman Islands. Whether it’s restoring a home for a single mother and her children, making sure underprivileged students don’t go hungry or reconnecting electricity and water for families that cannot afford to maintain their utilities, ARK’s programmes strive to improve quality of life for the most vulnerable in our society.
