The Honeymoon Chair on Jamestown waterfront – one of St Helena’s best-loved spots – has been badly damaged.
Saint FM reports that a tractor was used to remove a branch from the bougainvillea that grew over the seat… and the entire tree toppled over.
The school swimming gala was taking place just a few yards away.

Shirley Gillian Green that honeymoon chair means a lot to us Saints. Lots of cherished memories.
Gilly May Key what a shame. If only that Honeymoon Chair could talk.
Dave Stevens No care for the sentimental value such a historic icon holds. Those of us abroad think about going home and sit there watching the sun set. That’s that ruined..
