The St Helena report and the gap in media

One a penny, two a penny, NOT cross buns…

Quirky St Helena fact, number 1: hot cross buns on St Helena may not have crosses.

Solomon’s Bakery at Half Tree Hollow planned to bake ten thousand of them for Easter 2012 – up on 8,500 in 2011. But Sinead Green, reporter for The Sentinel, couldn’t help but notice that something was missing from the buns – which are meant to represent the crucifixion of Christ on Good Friday.

Richard “Toby” Constantine explained the absence of crosses thus: “In other parts of the world they have machines that help along with the process. Here we would have to mark all ten thousand buns by hand and it’s very time consuming.”
