As with previous updates, if you’re interested in how the global Covid-19 pandemic has affected St Helena we’ve summarised the main aspects to date on our page A Brief History.

It looks like our Constitution will be changed in 2020/21. We report what is said to be needed on our Our Constitution page.

We have a new Community Page for the island band Forgotten Colony. You can even hear a clip from their song Caught in a Moment.

For some time we have collected mis-descriptions of St Helena from the world’s press but the example we’ve now added may win the prize… See Do they mean us?.

We’ve put in lots more Location Maps, to help you find places, particularly on page Historic Buildings In Brief - Jamestown.

Previously the icon (in the Control Icons, top right) only allowed you to tab through the Colour Scheme options. Now it links you to a separate page with various parameters you can set - still including Colour Scheme (of which there are now many more{1}) but also fonts, font sizes and more. More here. It is our intention to expand the selection of configurable parameters in the future. Please contact us if you have any suggestions.

Our FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) page is now split into two. FAQ about St Helena appear on page Frequently Asked Questions about St Helena, and FAQ specifically about Saint Helena Island Info appear on page Frequently Asked Questions about this site.

Can you help us identify the mystery building on our page Lost and almost-lost Buildings?

We almost have democracy on St Helena but compared to our overall timeline this is only a tiny proportion. See the chart at the end of the History section of page Government.

Peter Neaum, who was a priest here in the 1980s, let us use his many photos across the site, but paticularly here: Photography.

We have a pilot’s eye view of landing at St Helena Airport (runway 20) here: Fly here.

There’s now an alphabetic index of our Governors at the top of the page The Governor of St Helena.

We have more on the Diana’s Peak name mystery, but still no solution. See Diana’s Peak. Can you help?

The little moon-phase image in the Current Astronomical Data on page Astronomy now changes daily - not a big change but, we felt, worth making! And on the same page we now have some useful information on the Southern Cross, a constellation you can only see from here in the Southern Hemisphere.

We have an intermediate resolution copy of the new official island map at Maps of St Helena.

And, as noted in the last release, all support for users who do not enable Javascript has been removed. See here: About This Site.

If you’re interested in how the global Covid-19 pandemic is affecting St Helena we’ve summarised the main aspects to date on our Brief History page here: A Brief History.

There’s a new feature on our Introduction page which helps first-time visitors know where to begin. See What do you want to know about? on Introduction.

There are some pictures from the 1960s showing the Diplomatic Wireless Station being constructed, on page Diplomatic Wireless Station.

George Reynolds shared with us a wonderful picture of Matty John at the White Horse in the 1970s. See it at Characters of St Helena.

Finally, please note that some time ago we posted a notice for users that do not enable Javascript, warning that we would disable non-Javascript features unless we heard reasons not to. We have heard nothing so our next release will remove all processing for users that do not enable Javascript. For such users the site will still work but some content will no longer be available. Modern browsers enable Javascript by default, and on some it is actually quite difficult to disable, so we are confident this will not affect many, if any, users.
