Bishop Brooks travels to St Martin to visit his parishioners, while his congregation at St Mary's and minister Canon Knight are gearing up for their biggest performance of the year - the Palm Sunday play.

It's Easter and Bishop Brooks is overseeing renovations at St. Mary's Anglican church. He has commissioned some new hurricane-proof stained glass windows, but with just days to go it's a race to get them in before the all-important service. Friends Reggie Oliver and Trudy Nixon are battling the waves in the annual Festival del Mar swimming competition, and the National Trust pay a visit to the Prickly Pear Cays to release some endangered native iguanas.
All over the island, celebrations are taking place for two very important birthdays as Queen Elizabeth II turns 90 and ex-pat Margaret Jones celebrates her 100th. Son John Jones and best friend Chinnicks are out fishing for Margaret's present and the National Trust have their work cut out as they educate local schoolchildren at their Turtle Interaction Day.
Following the parish calendar on the island of Anguilla. The 49th Anguilla Day kicks off with the biggest boat race of the season.
