Local News Roundup Words by Jen Smith from Channel 103, news@jerseyweekly.com

A new dawn…? 15 new faces, 9 farewells and one massive poll topper. That’s the summary of Jersey’s biggest ever election that saw shock exits but maintained much of the status quo. Island-wide we now have 3 new senators and one returning senator. In case you’ve missed it, 80% of Islanders who made it to a polling booth voted for Sir Philip Bailhache. The former judge topped the poll in every parish but one (St Helier). Ian Gorst, Francis Le Gresley and Lyndon Farnham join him in the chamber. The new States assembly will need to find a new Planning Minister and Transport Minister as current occupants Freddie Cohen and Mike Jackson didn’t get back into office. Longest-serving States member - Terry Le Main - is out of a job. The senator failed to be elected deputy for St Helier Number 2. Bob Hill, deputy for St Martin for 18 years, has been replaced by Steve Luce. St Helier Number 1 showed the first wave of change. Political newcomer James Baker topped the poll from eight candidates. Three more novices were equally popular, Rod Bryans (St Helier No.2), Susie Pinel (St Clement), and Richard Rondel (St Helier No. 3). Three of the four constables chosen on Wednesday are new to politics - Michael Paddock (St Ouen), Sadie Rennard (St Saviour) and Steve Pallett (St Brelade).

Condor crew ‘weren’t watching radar’ before fatal accident The crew of the Condor Vitesse weren’t watching the radar before their boat smashed into a French fishing trawler killing the skipper.

A report by French Marine Accident Investigators said a lack of attention, as well as the weather and the ferry’s speed contributed to the accident. Father of four Philippe Lesaulnier from Granville was killed instantly when the ferry hit his boat in March. Investigators say the ship’s crew was not discussing keeping watch, despite the poor visibility. Transcripts show minutes before the impact the master had said he’d been watching the film Catwoman the night before and hadn’t slept well following it. The report says the chief officer should have been able to detect the French vessel on the radar with ten minutes notice. The Marine Investigators don’t attribute blame but try to avoid future accidents, it’s yet to be seen whether French prosecutors will pursue further action.

Inflation hike as cost of living soars It was revealed last week that inflation has risen in Jersey by 5.4%. It means the cost of living has increased by 0.9% in the last three months. The expense of filling up, higher prices for food and the hike in GST have fuelled the rise. Union members have warned wages are not adequately covering the cost of living. The underlying rate of inflation is 3.9%. Over the year, it’s costing us 13% more to pay for fuel and light.

Fears for care home

It estimates £250 million worth of construction could begin almost immediately.

A shelter that cares for up to 30 vulnerable Islanders announced last week they were being forced to close because of a lack of funding.

Two firms had already expressed fears they’ll have to let workers go.

Roseneath Centre said they’d have to make 17 residents homeless and 15 staff would lose their jobs. The cost of upgrading facilities and getting in line with a UK regulator was too much. But by the end of the week Treasury Minister Philip Ozouf had thrown a lifeline by claiming a one-off ‘capital investment’ could possibly be found. Senator Ozouf wasn’t clear where the money would come from but a meeting with two other Island ministers was arranged to find a solution.

Peter French told Channel 103 that 34 workers would be made redundant if plans to convert a hotel into 23 homes are refused. There’s currently a permit for Cheval Roc at Bonne Nuit to be demolished and replaced with three luxury homes. But Mr French says his firm wants instead to address the shortage of housing for local people. Meanwhile Dandara said work was drying up for their staff as they’ve nearly finished construction on phase one of Castle Quay and at Portelet Bay.

The news came shortly after the announcement that another St Helier care home is being shut down.

A spokesperson says the potential job losses are down to delays in the planning process involving its applications for Westmount Quarry and Mascot Motors.

Town Constable Simon Crowcroft has decided to close Maison De Ville because of its rising costs and outdated facilities.

Treasury Minister Philip Ozouf responded to the concerns saying he’ll bring forward housing projects and speed up the system.

It’s losing more than a quarter of a million pounds a year.

New owners Channel TV

The home will be gradually wound up - with staff and residents being moved to other locations as they become available.

The price of domestic heating oil went up by almost a third and gas prices increased by 29%.

Construction industry demands quicker decisions to avoid redundancies

In the same day the States reported rising unemployment with 140 more Islanders out of work compared to September last year.

Jersey’s construction industry hit out last week that workers would have to be made redundant if States projects aren’t brought forward.

There are now 1,370 Islanders registered as unemployed last month, 20 more than at the end of August. 290 of them were aged 16-19.

The JeCC said work was drying up in the Island and urged the government to do something about it.

Local television provider Channel TV was sold to ITV plc last week. It was owned by Yattendon and leaves just 2 independentlyowned broadcasters left in the Channel 3 network. They are STV in Scotland and Northern Ireland’s UTV. The sale is subject to approval from the JCRA but the broadcaster says it will continue to provide local programming. MD Karen Rankin says no jobs will be lost and viewers shouldn’t notice a difference.

Jersey Vision Correction’s 1000th life changing treatment

Rakesh is a Consultant Ophthalmologist practicing at the Queen Alexandra Hospital, and Spire Portsmouth Hospital specialising in ophthalmology, cataract surgery, corneal & external eye disease and refractive surgery. The final member of the team is Jen Castle, the clinic manager. With over 15 years experience in the optical industry, including six as General & Surgery Manager for one of the UK’s largest laser surgery providers, she is in charge of all aspects of clinic, patient, consultant and optometrist management. 1000th patient Jess goes onto say she can’t believe the difference laser treatment has made to her life. She can now drive, watch TV, read her autocue and read other things that are in the distance, without glasses or contacts. She finds her eyes are less irritated and doesn’t have to worry about losing her contacts or lugging around bottles of solution. With so many clinics in the UK providing laser eye surgery Jess was relieved to find out there was a clinic on the island providing the treatment that she needed. Jess explain, “I didn’t want to have a procedure like that and not be at home to recover. Also on the off chance there were any complications then the clinic would be on my doorstep. I couldn’t imagine having to fly back to the UK with painful eyes if there was something wrong.”

This summer, Jersey Vision Correction carried out its 1000th treatment. The procedure was carried out on Channel Television’s Jess Dunsdon this July and she has never looked back. Jess always hated wearing glasses and had numerous issues with contact lenses finding them painful, fiddly and an inconvenience. Upon hitting the big 3-0 Jess decided enough was enough. And while laser treatments are not cheap, she reasoned with herself that she would rather spend the money on a procedure that would last decades, and change her life, than something like a car she would tire of after a few years. Jess said about the procedure; “What surprised me was the fact it was all over in 15 minutes and although my vision was fuzzy - I could see immediately. In fact - within half an hour of the surgery I went out for lunch!”. Jersey Vision Correction, situated at the Little Grove medical clinic in St Lawrence, was set up by Optometrist Dave Baker BSc (Hons) MCOptom in 2006. Dave qualified in Optometry in 1991 and has subsequently been involved in over 14,000 laser treatments. World leading expert Professor Sunil Shah MBBS, FRCOphth, FRCS(Ed), FBCLA, performed the LASEK laser treatment on Jess, with treatment preparation, planning and full after care being carried out by Dave and his island based team. Professor Shah independently developed LASEK, a laser eye surgery technique, and was the first person to use it in Britain. He continues to pioneer this technique and his work in Ophthalmology has earned him a place in ‘Who’s Who in the World’. With the 1000th treatment, Jersey Vision Correction also saw it as time to take onboard another surgeon - Rakesh Jayaswal MBChB FRCOphth FRCS(Ed)

Complications with laser eye surgery such as LASEK / LASIK are extremely rare and most experience no pain or complications at all. Jess described that she felt her eyes were slightly gritty for 3-5 days but not painful. And after a week she was back at work wearing her onscreen makeup and reading the autocue under the studio lights.

Itex realigns its senior management team to respond to forecasts in business growth and to anticipated change in IT delivery

from a client perspective as the company enters this new era. A new Market Development function has also been created to focus on new services and markets, to be led by the current Guernsey MD Richard Parker, who will also assume responsibility for group marketing. Tim Wainwright will head up the group’s Managed Services business responsible for the delivery of Itex service activities in all its jurisdictions. Tim Barnes continues in his role as Finance and Commercial Director. Ian adds: “This change is inevitable - the massive investments already being made by the major players in the industry are indicative of this. We want to ensure that we are in the best position to take advantage of this trend so we can continue to deliver quality service to current and future clients. We stand on an exciting threshold for Itex as we look to a future where there is a fundamental shift in the way businesses will operate their IT. The introduction of our new business model will create an environment in which Itex can continue to innovate and grow.”

New retail outlet to open at Jersey Airport A six-year lease agreement with Channel Island’s company Healthspan will see them open a new shop in the airside departures lounge at Jersey Airport. The Guernsey based leading UK supplier of nutritional supplements, which also has premises in King Street, St Helier, will be selling a variety of health and travel products, Healthspan’s own skin-care range, Nurture, as well as a selection of luxury gifts. The new shop will also offer a gift-wrapping service.

Leading IT services provider Itex has announced plans to augment the structure of its business to position itself for what the company believes to be major changes within the IT industry over the next few years. The business has created group functional divisions to ensure a more integrated and standardised approach to client service across its three offices in Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man. This realignment means new director level roles have opened up within the organisation. Ian Jauncey, who will lead the team as Managing Director, explains: ”We foresee substantial changes emerging in the IT world over the next two to five years which will impact every organisation. With the rapid development of technologies such as Cloud, for example, businesses will have to adapt to seismic change if they are to remain competitive.” Itex anticipates a significant shift in the way and the speed that organisations purchase and consume IT services and resources, moving from in-house self-sufficiency to consumption-based utility services. The new structure will position the business to accommodate the increase in IT service demand, supporting and facilitating clients through these changes, while at the same time maintaining the high levels of service provision they currently deliver. Gary Bowles has been recruited as Business Development Director responsible for the group’s sales and professional services delivery. Gary has over 30 years’ experience in IT including periods as Executive Director with Mourants in Jersey and as CTO with Kleinwort Benson. His appointment will bring valuable insight

The airport-based shop, which will occupy a space of 600 sq feet, will be located adjacent to current retailers Jersey Pearl, La Mare Wine Estate and Jersey Pottery in one of the three outlets, which were created as part of the 2009 refurbishment of the airside departures lounge. Work is currently taking place to fit out the new shop, which is due to open for business on Wednesday 26 October 2011. Derek Coates, Chief Executive and founder of Healthspan, said, “I am delighted to announce the opening of Healthspan’s exciting new retail outlet, the first of its kind in any UK airport. This is an exciting new venture and we aim to offer customers our top brand nutritional and well-being supplements, as well as selling a wide choice of luxury gifts.” Jersey Airport Director, Julian Green, said, “Healthspan is a leading brand name in the Channel Islands and we are pleased to welcome them to Jersey Airport, which will expand the range of goods available to our departing passengers. We look forward to working with them and wish them every future success”.

Low confidence could be boosted by releasing projects With confidence receding in the construction sector, the Jersey Construction Council is calling on government to release further stimulus funding and bring forward capital projects to support the industry.

The JeCC is extremely concerned about the desperate shortage of work available, which has been highlighted recently by threats of redundancy from two island firms and has already seen the demise this year of Charles Le Quesne, a long-standing construction company. In this quarter’s Business Tendency Survey, the construction sector gave negative scores across all indicators, with Input Costs, Profitability and Business Optimism being the most strongly negative areas polled. JeCC Chairman Martin Holmes said: “The construction sector contributes 6% of GVA and is the Island’s fourth largest industry. We account for 10% of the workforce and when there is a steady stream of work there is regular employment. But when workflows fluctuate, businesses struggle to balance supply and demand. This causes loss of expertise as staff have to leave Jersey to look for work elsewhere and can mean new projects are awarded off-island. “Creating a steady stream of work avoids this economic leakage and maintains diversification within the economy, which is essential for island stability. Capital spending is one of the most effective ways in which the government can invest to stimulate the economy and secure long-term recovery. It has a multiplier effect which means that every £1 invested in the construction industry is worth £2.84 to the wider economy,” he said. The JeCC supports the work undertaken by the Treasury and Planning Departments for the sector to date. However, it estimates that new projects totalling £250m of private investment could begin almost immediately in areas already identified in the Island Plan. In addition, the desperate need for affordable housing should be addressed now with the release of the identified States-owned sites.

“We will also be considering infrastructure investment in IT to kickstart moves to position Jersey as a centre for high value, low footprint, technology businesses. This is a key objective of our economic growth strategy which we must accelerate. “And we are planning a further range of initiatives to get people back into work - by extending Advance to Work, Advance Plus and other workplace initiatives from Social Security. It is essential to keep people in productive work through this period of continued global economic uncertainty. “The Panel’s main conclusions endorse the difficult decisions the Assembly has been called upon to make in the last few years; decisions which mean we can act quickly and decisively, having already balanced the books and dealt with the deficit.”

Citi employee volunteers in Jersey to answer call to service as part of company’s sixth annual “Global Community Day”

“We invite the Planning Minister to work with us to pinpoint those projects which can easily and efficiently be released. It is imperative that we inject confidence back into the sector, and continue to contribute to the local economy,” said Mr Holmes.

Treasury Minister’s response to the Fiscal Policy Panel’s annual report update Treasury and Resources Minister, Senator Philip Ozouf, made the following statement in response to the publication of the Fiscal Policy Panel’s update report on the 21st October:

New York – Citi volunteers around the world demonstrated their commitment to service during the company’s sixth annual “Global Community Day,” on Saturday, October 22. In 78 countries around the world, an expected 40,000 Citi employee volunteers will participate in nearly 1,100 local service projects.

“I am very pleased to see the FPP confirm that our public finances are on the right course, and that the States should continue with its Comprehensive Spending Review and Fiscal Strategy Review measures as an absolute minimum. “It is timely that our independent economic experts are reminding us that the global economic climate has deteriorated and that, as a result, the financial situation is still very tight. Although the FPP does not recommend further discretionary stimulus, they have advised that we should support the economy without weakening States finances. That is why we are proposing additional measures to get the economy moving and to protect people’s jobs. “We will ensure that any capital funds allocated, but not yet used, are spent next year. We will bring forward housing projects - new build and refurbishment - to keep the construction firms’ order books going in an uncertain time. I am working with Ministerial colleagues to ensure that planning applications are progressed as quickly as possible.

In Jersey, Citi volunteers worked for the Jersey Animal Shelter assisting in a clear up of their nature trail based in St Brelade, clearing the area of rubbish and cutting back the overgrowth to try and encourage wildlife back into the area such as Woodpeckers & Red Squirrels. In addition, using branches and foliage built stacks hopefully to provide shelter for hedgehogs, beetles etc. during the winter months. Volunteerism is a cornerstone of the Citi employee experience, with many employees regularly engaging in community service year-around. Global Community Day is an opportunity for Citi to showcase and reinforce that shared commitment by inviting employees, families and friends to collaborate as a single global volunteer team. Working throughout North America, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, Citi volunteers will lend their time and expertise to concentrate on local community needs, including literacy, housing, environmental protection, nutrition, health care and disaster relief.

Jersey Overseas Aid commission 2012 projects Uganda 2012

The aim of this project is to build teachers accommodation at Mifumi Primary School, Mifumi village, Tororo, Eastern Uganda. Mifumi Primary School started life as a series of dilapidated shacks with some lessons taking place under trees. Development of the school arose from one family’s dream to provide quality education to the children of Mifumi village. This gave rise to the MIFUMI Project. Support came from far and wide and resulted in the construction of new classrooms and the addition of a nursery. These classrooms soon filled up with children eager to learn. Further classrooms were built as demand grew which in turn led to the need for more teachers. Due to Mifumi’s rural location, finding qualified teachers willing to relocate proved a challenge. Through support from JOAC and the Trinity Trust ( Jersey), MIFUMI was able build staff accommodation a short distance away at Mifumi Health Centre. Clean water was also installed through a well and pump system. This current project will see the construction of 3 further accommodation units near the school. This will enable the school to attract qualified teachers to provide a high standard of education to over 600 students. Through this project, we are keeping alive the dream of bringing quality education to the children of Mifumi village and beyond.

out physically demanding work for eight hours per day, five and a half days per week. It will also be hot so team members should be prepared to work in hotter conditions than they are probably used to. Each volunteer, if accepted, will be expected to make a contribution of £550 to the project cost and to provide all his/her personal kit.

We are currently seeking volunteers to take part in our 2012 Community Work Projects.

A short presentation will be given on each project and members of the Jersey Overseas Aid Commission and Sub-Committee will be available to answer any questions.

Nepal 2012 The aim of this project is to build a new home for about 80 to 100 children (boys and girls), a primary school and a small clinic in Mahottari, Central Region, Janakpur Zone, Dhanusa District, Nepal. The children’s home will provide accommodation, food, medical care and education for the children who are at risk and give them a secure environment. The primary school will provide free education for the children of the home as well as children from the surrounding area. The small clinic will provide free medical treatment for the people of the village. The home will be administered by Eternal World Ministries a Christian Organisation founded by Pastor John Raijah. They currently run 6 children’s homes (5 in India and 1 in Nepal), feed about 700 children each day and provide for all their needs. Local builders will complete the major building work and the team will be involved in decorating and fitting out the building.

Bangladesh 2012 The aim of the Bangladesh 2012 project is to build a primary school in Muktaram Village which is in the Kurigram district in Northern Bangladesh. The Kurigram district has a population of approx. 2 million people, 17 rivers and its main crop is rice. The children that will attend the school are from extremely poor, vulnerable and disadvantaged families, with 90% of the parents earning a livelihood from the agriculture industry, meaning very low pay for very hard work. Street children will also be taught at the school in the evenings, as they work during the day. A local charity, VIEW, have asked for our help as there is no government funding for the building or running of schools in rural areas. We will be building a 4 classroom block using bricks. It is hoped that the foundations will be laid before we arrive, but if not we will have to dig them ourselves and may have to mix the concrete & cement by hand. Over the years Overseas Aid has found that a Team of equal numbers of males and females with an age range of 18 to 70 works well. Ideally we would wish to include some skilled tradesmen and a nurse but it is most important to have the willingness to pitch in and work hard. Applicants should be reasonably fit and should not suffer from any health problems which would prevent them from carrying

Life-long friends rally together to help save John Sharp’s life A ‘fun’ walk is being organised in the Island to raise much needed funds for a Jersey charity called ‘Hope for John’.

The team contributed to a wide range of tasks, ranging from weeding to creating new water features, planting to giving the walls a lick of paint, building benches to putting up shelving and sheds. This makeover was designed to promote fun and learning in a safe environment for the young children. The end result of a fun and successful day is hopefully something which will be a great advantage to the nursery’s occupants. Jane Moy, Business and Finance Executive of Centre Point Trust, also expressed her thanks for Standard Bank’s hard work. “It’s so important for children to have the benefit of both outdoor and indoor play areas. We are very grateful to Standard Bank for their ongoing support, and their contribution to the gardens will ensure the children, especially those who may not have a garden or open space to play in regularly, have the chance to play outside in a safe environment all year round.”

Green fingers on Green Bye-law change proposed to Street – Standard Bank improve disabled facilities A proposed change to the building bye-laws will make it a team give garden a requirement for newly constructed or extended public buildings to makeover at Centre Point include a ‘changing places’ disabled toilet facility. Minister Deputy Rob Duhamel said he had brought Trust’s Rope Walk Nursery Environment forward proposals for the change and a consultation document had now been issued for interested parties.

Changing Places is a concept developed by learning disability charity Mencap and calls for the provision of disabled toilets which have a height adjustable changing bench for adults, a hoist and plenty of space. Deputy Duhamel said: “This amendment to the regulations is the result of the proposition brought to the States by Deputy Andrew Green calling for a changes places room to be provided in public buildings to assist disabled people. The proposition was unanimously supported by the States and I am pleased to be able to bring forward proposals that will make it a reality.”

Having worked last year on the garden at Centre Point Trust’s unit at La Pouquelaye, the team from Standard Bank once again dedicated their free time to assisting the organisation to improve its facilities. Over 25 staff, family and friends spent Saturday 15th October revamping and tidying up the garden space at Centre Point’s Rope Walk nursery, which offers day care facilities for children aged between two and five years old. Standard Bank’s Director of Marketing Claire Reid was very pleased with the day’s work. She said: “This is now our third consecutive year of working with Centre Point Trust and we were thrilled to be able to help enhance the facilities of such a wonderful outdoor area at Rope Walk. Getting involved in the local community is an important part of Standard Bank’s ethos and Centre Point Trust’s contribution to the local community makes it the perfect partner for our group in this kind of project. We are now very much looking forward to seeing the reactions of the children to their upgraded outdoor areas where they can get involved in a wide variety of activities.” The Rope Walk nursery provides weekday care throughout the year for children aged two to five and, like the other units run by Centre Point Trust, aims to give working parents a helping hand by offering excellent and affordable childcare. Whilst the indoor facilities at Rope Walk are perfectly arranged to cater for the inquisitive minds of toddlers and small children, it is the external facilities which are particularly impressive with large outdoor learning and play areas.

Deputy Green’s proposition called for amendments to planning guidance and regulations to make it a requirement for new-build and significant renovation projects to provide a changing places facility. He stressed that current facilities did not meet the needs of many disabled people and that most of those were not even available during the evening or on Sundays. A copy of the consultation document is available on the States website at www.gov.je and anyone who wants to make a comment about the proposed amendment can do so by emailing buildingcontrol@gov.je

All places must be booked in advance by contacting the Trust’s office on 483193 or by email: slequesne@nationaltrustjersey.org.je The National Trust for Jersey President, Celia Jeune commented: “This really is a one of a kind activity as children receive a truly hands-on experience with the huge variety of flora and fauna that they can discover within the Island’s woodlands. The National Trust of Jersey, with the support of HSBC has now added another piece in its educational jigsaw to encourage and inspire the young naturalists of tomorrow.” Dave Hellen, Regional Director, HSBC Channel Islands and Isle of Man, said: “The National Trust for Jersey is a long term community partner for HSBC and I am delighted that we are able to support Woodland Wonders. Our staff have shown so much enthusiasm for supporting such educational programmes and many have attended ‘ranger training’ days, to enable them to voluntarily help facilitate the sessions. It’s great to see the work that is done here in passing on knowledge, instilling enthusiasm and encouraging action amongst young people.”

pounds for the charity which relies entirely on the generosity of the public to fund the £6,000 a day needed to run all of the services offered to islanders with cancer and motor neurone disease. These services, which are provided free of charge, include palliative nursing care, complementary therapies and bereavement support. Beth Lloyd, one of the volunteers co-ordinating this year’s sales said: “We’re really pleased with the cards we have on offer this year and would like to say a huge thank you to all our local artists who have helped us with the designs. Once again it was a very hard decision to choose the final selection and thank you to everyone who sent in designs for us to consider.” The cards, priced at £3.50 and £2.95, are on sale at The Hospice Shops in St Helier and St Ouen, Clarkson House, Garden Scene, Rosedale Stores, and the Lido Medical Centre. The scenic cards will be on sale from November at Cards for Good Causes, WHSmith and Holmegrown. Cards can also be purchased online at www. jerseyhospicecare.com or by order form, available in various outlets across the island or by calling the Fundraising team on 510349.

2011 Hospice Christmas card selection unveiled

Six local artists have designed a range of Christmas cards which are now on sale to raise money for Jersey Hospice Care. Each year the charity asks islanders to donate their designs which are then reproduced into a selection of cards featuring local scenes and Christmas themes. Eight designs feature this year: ‘Cosy Corner’ by Norma Priddis brings back many a happy memory of that hostelry in days gone by, before it became the Cock and Bottle, whilst Choir in Royal Square by Joan Turpin features the choir of St Helier’s Church outside the States Building. Both of these can be bought flat, ready for overprinting, or in packs of ten. These cards are smaller than the usual flat-pack cards, due to popular demand. For those wanting the traditional larger size, there is Rozel in the Snow by Denis Knee and Chilly Morning, the Hamptonne geese painted by Lynne Jenner. Louise le Luyer has created two cards, Celebration Time is both seasonal and patriotic and Hospice Bauble which has the charity’s logo in pride of place on a festive Christmas tree. The two other new designs for 2011 are Robin painted by Lynne Jenner and a cute Dog created by Jessica Mallet, a student from form 7E at Les Quennevais School. Over the years Christmas card sales have generated thousands of

The charity also has produced Jersey 2012, a full size appointments calendar (£5.99) featuring photographs of local scenes kindly donated by various island photographers (Stuart Abraham, Steve Wellum, Fiona Le Gros, Alan Lagadu, Matt Porteous, Gary Grimshaw, Markus Kubeck, Paul Carpenter, Andy Le Gresley and Christian Keenan) and a 2012 diary (£4.50 and available in blue, purple and pink), which has been produced free of charge, thanks to businesses that have advertised within. Calendars and diaries being sold at various outlets across the island including the Co-Op, Checkers, Jersey Post, Roberts Garages, Pet Cabin, Jersey Museum and Jersey Pottery. They can also be bought from the charity’s website alongside a range of Christmas gifts which can be purchased online as well as at the various Christmas fairs and bazaars that the charity will be attending over the next couple of months. Islanders who would like to submit designs or photographs for next year’s cards and calendar should send them to fundraising@ jerseyhospicecare.com or by post to Fundraising, Clarkson House, Mont Cochon, St Helier, Jersey, JE2 3JB by the end of January 2012.

2011 Christmas lottery Tickets for the 2011 Channel Islands Christmas lottery are on sale now in retail outlets across Jersey.

Economic Development Minister, Senator Alan Maclean, said: “With all its profits going directly to the Association of Jersey Charities, the Christmas lottery is not only a great seasonal event but it is also an opportunity for Islanders to contribute to the valuable ongoing work of our local charities.”

Gerald Voisin said: “The Refuge undertakes a vital service to our Island community and is a very worthy cause which we are proud to support in as many ways as we can.”

Chair of the Association of Jersey Charities, Liz Le Poidevin, added: “The Association of Jersey Charities has been lucky enough to receive the Jersey share of the Channel Islands lottery profits for many years now and we could not continue our work of helping our member charities without it.”

‘Open Door Corporate Campaign’

A new look for the League of Friends

Jersey employers are being asked to support the Open Door Corporate Campaign against domestic abuse. In November the Jersey’s Domestic Violence Forum will launch its annual campaign to highlight the effects of domestic violence on the workplace by inviting employers and local businesses to implement a domestic violence policy. Mike Cutland, Chairman of the Domestic Violence Forum said: “Domestic abuse can affect anyone, from the person you manage to the person who manages you. Both men and women can be victims and the tell-tale signs may not always be obvious. That’s why it is important that staff at all levels are equipped to recognise the signs and are aware of what to do should they suspect someone is a victim of abuse. This support can prove life changing for the victim and could be a first step to helping them out of harms way.” One in four women and one in six men are affected by domestic abuse during their lifetimes – and the affects are not confined to the home. The cost of domestic violence in the workplace can be significant when the affect on productivity, performance, attendance and emotional and physical wellbeing of employees are considered. The manager of the Jersey Women’s Refuge, Lorna Kearney, said the training workshop would provide HR professionals and employers with the ideal opportunity to address domestic violence by providing tools, assistance and resources for employees - and to direct them to the appropriate professional agencies. “Action by employers can be relatively simple and low cost but can, nonetheless, have a huge impact on an employee’s quality of life and their ability to contribute to the workplace. By raising awareness of domestic violence within an organisation, employers are helping to prevent it in the wider community,” she said. Further information and sign up details for the half day workshop and breakfast launch event are available at www. jerseywomensrefuge.org At least ten per cent of employees are likely to be victims or survivors of domestic abuse every year. In addition, 75% of domestic abuse victims are targeted at work; 56% of abused women arrive late at least five times per month and 53% are absent at least three times per month. The campaign is being launched on Monday 21st November when leading campaigner against domestic violence, Fiona Bowman, will address employers. The following day she will address a business breakfast. Both events are being hosted by Voisins Department Store in the store’s Café 1837. Voisins is the first private-sector employer to sign up for the campaign and the Women’s Refuge has been their chosen charity for two years.

A major project to refurbish the League of Friends Café and shop at the General Hospital has been completed and the new-look premises was officially re-opened by the Deputy Bailiff, William Bailhache on 24 October. The work to give the League of Friends shop and café a fresh new look was undertaken by the Jersey Construction Council’s charity, the Brick Foundation, and the Health and Social Services Department and has provided a modern, up to date facility for both those who use it and the League of Friends volunteers. The refurbishment was originally selected by the Jersey Construction Council ( JeCC) as one of their chosen community projects and was been completed during this year’s Construction Week in September. The new premises for the League of Friends remains on the ground floor of the Hospital, but has been relocated to the area where the florist was located by the Parade entrance. The shop and café are now a combined premises and, thanks to the new layout, room has also been created for much-needed storage space within the Hospital. Throughout the League of Friends project, JeCC member businesses gave their services free of charge to keep costs down. League of Friends chairperson Jenny Bailhache said: “The new premises with their new look are getting praise from our customers, and just as importantly, are a lovely environment for our hard working team of volunteers to work in. It makes sense to have both the shop and the café in the same place, and it is wonderful that we are still in our traditional location, which is well-known by so many Islanders who support the League of Friends, who, in turn support the Hospital and many projects with the money raised. “We are always looking for volunteers who want to come and join the League of Friends.” JeCC Vice Chairman David Morris said that the finished result at the League of Friends was a fantastic example of what could be achieved when the construction industry came together to support the community. “I am really proud of the work that has been done here. As the main contractor, Style Shopfitting, brought together a fantastic team and everyone has worked hard to complete the project this week. We hope that the League of Friends volunteers and users of the hospital will enjoy the new surroundings,” he said. Hospital managing director Andrew McLaughlin said: “The League of Friends makes an important contribution both financially and through volunteers to the life of the Hospital. They have made valuable donations over the years. We appreciate their

dedication to their roles.” “They deserve a modern, bright location so that customers continue to be attracted to the café and the work of the Jersey Construction Council members has ensured that this is the case. We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has been involved in this project,” said Mr McLaughlin. Carole Penfold of the League of Friends added: “The project has been really exciting and has enormously improved the area that our volunteers are working in. The café and shop were showing their age having been opened over twenty years ago and we are very grateful to the Jersey Construction Council for undertaking this refurbishment.”

The centre costs 250,000 a year to run and only receives a grant of £28,000 from the Health and Social Services Department. The shortfall has to be made by fundraising and donations.

Jersey Heritage Plans for Ongoing Product Development

Trainees revamp Headway for Centre’s 10th Anniversary As part of the Ernst & Young induction week, twenty accountancy trainees have given the Headway Centre for people with brain injuries in Jersey a makeover to mark ten years since the facility was set up by the charity. In addition to the formal office based induction, the trainee accountants, armed with paint pots and brushes donated by their new employers, experienced at first hand the firm’s commitment to the wider community when they spent last Thursday re- decorating the Headway centre. The trainees managed to decorate almost every room in the centre in five and half hours. The recruits also met some members of Headway who were taking part in a rehabilitative workshop using special ‘Saebolfex’ equipment. Jackie Hankin, People Manager at Ernst & Young, said: “Like many businesses, we want to be responsible and contribute to the communities in which we live and work. Supporting Headway is just one example of this commitment and we are all absolutely delighted that our efforts can make such a huge difference during this important anniversary year. We were pleased to be given the opportunity to play a key part in re-decorating a centre which plays such a pivotal role in providing support to local families.” She added: “This was an induction week with a difference and this activity offers an excellent opportunity to encourage effective teamwork among our new associates during their initial week with us, while also reinforcing our community spirit.” Ray Cooper, Chairman of Headway, said: “This was perfect timing for us as it marks ten years since we first opened a Headway Centre. The centre is now incredibly popular and has gone from being open just two days to six days a week. This has taken its toll on the building so it was desperately in need of a makeover. We rely hugely on the help of volunteers for support and fund raising so we are very grateful to Ernst & Young for their energy and enthusiasm in helping to make this happen. The centre now looks much brighter and fresher thanks to their hard work.”

Jersey Heritage has this week submitted planning applications that, if approved, will assist with the ongoing development of the Heritage product and offering in 2012. Jon Carter, Director for Jersey Heritage explains: “Jersey Heritage’s Service Level Agreement with Education, Sport & Culture sets aside a sum of money each year for capital investment in sites. The aim is that this will, in turn, provide sustainable increases in revenue. For 2012 this capital investment is being directed towards adding self-catering accommodation at Hamptonne over the course of the year. There is also a desire to edge forward improvements in other locations, particularly cafés. It is vital that Jersey Heritage maintains an excellent offering for visitors and residents and these developments will play a key part in achieving this objective.” The priorities outlined in the Jersey Heritage capital investment programme have been defined in response to a range of feedback including the recent VAQAS accreditation reviews and visitor surveys that have been completed over the summer months. A number of options are being explored and funding sought to deliver them. In order that these remain options for 2012, planning permission is being sought to: move the café at Elizabeth Castle into the Gate House (the old shop); add decking that will raise the seating outside the Mont Orgueil café so that visitors can view their surroundings and to de-clutter both the entrance to the Jersey Museum courtyard and the area in front of No.9. All plans have been discussed with the Jersey Heritage Conservation Advisory Group, which includes representatives of the National Trust, Société Jersiaise and the Channel Island Occupation Society.

The Headway Centre at Le Coie opens and operates a minibus service for members six days a week, offering rehabilitation and support to around 125 members. Services provided from the centre include Family and Carer Support, Counselling, Advocacy, Home Life Skills, Rehabilitative Workshops, Crafts, Dao Yin, Meditation, Alternative Therapies, Hypnotherapy, Swimming, Social Events and Outings.

Europe’s three big problems James McKeigue, Money Week Across the river from the City

UK misery hits a 19yr high The FTSE 100 had a choppy week. But it’s still up around 10% since the start of the month. That’s a marked contrast with what’s happening in the rest of the economy. Indeed, this is a really grim time for the British consumer, says David Stevenson on Thursday: ‘How to protect your wealth as the Misery Index rises’ on moneyweek.com The Misery Index, which works by adding together unemployment and inflation, is now at a 19-year high. And there’s even more gloom in store, says David. Longer dole queues are a huge problem. They “mean the country’s tax burden will fall on fewer shoulders (because fewer people are earning), while at the same time benefit payments will rise. And of course, if you don’t have a job, you generally won’t have a lot of spare cash to splash around. So rising unemployment will hit consumer spending, which still accounts for around two-thirds of Britain’s economic activity”. The inflation side of the Misery Index is hurting too. The consumer price index (CPI) is now rising at 5.2% (you can keep track of this on the ‘inflation indicators’ page on our website). “The latest surge has been largely pinned on rising energy prices. That’s another problem for Britain’s consumers. The more money they have to shell out on essentials like fuel, the less they have to spend on anything else.” Of course this doesn’t just affect your dayto-day expenses. It hits your investments too, says David. Because “this is all bad news for a whole range of consumer-facing businesses, from holiday companies to high street chains. Just look at yesterday’s results from Home Retail, the owner of Homebase and Argos. Sales at Argos fell sharply, while half-year profits plunged from £54m to £3.4m – the lowest ever recorded in a sixmonth period. And what’s really scary is that Home Retail boss Terry Duddy reckons his firm is doing better than its rivals”. “For investors, the message is clear. It’s been our advice for a while, but we’ve no reason to change it: steer clear of consumer-related shares.”

So what’s been driving UK shares higher this month? We need to look across the Channel to find the answer. “Every time the Europeans pretend they’re about to come up with a solution to the Greek/ Portuguese/ Italian/ Spanish/ French crisis (delete as applicable), the market leaps”, says John Stepek in Friday’s Money Morning: What the stalemate in the eurozone means for you. This week the tone has been buoyant on hopes that Germany and France are going to ‘solve’ the crisis. But is the market’s optimism justified? Probably not, says John. Europe has three main problems. “First, there’s Greece. It’s going to go bust. The question is, how much money do the speculators who bought Greek debt lose over and above the already-agreed 21%? This is sticky - some private sector Greek debt holders aren’t too keen to take a bigger haircut.” “Second, there are Europe’s banks. James Ferguson pointed out recently in MoneyWeek magazine that unlike the US and the UK, Europe has never really tackled the gaping holes in its banking system. That means lots of its banks are vulnerable to any further financial shocks, and need to raise more money to remain solvent”. But the biggest problem of all is “how to make the markets stop worrying about bigger eurozone countries going bust”. French President Nicolas Sarkozy wants the European Central Bank (ECB) “to do what the Bank of England and the Fed have been doing. Print money and buy European government debt with it, via the European Financial Stability Facility (the big bail-out fund)”. But German leader Angela Merkel “doesn’t want the ECB to start printing money”, says John. “Her countryfolk remember what happened the last time a local central banker started up the printing presses. Weimar looms large in the German psyche, and with good reason.” Meanwhile, Sarkozy is worried that if France over-commits to boosting the EFSF, it would worsen the country’s credit rating (you can read more on this here). “Sarkozy doesn’t want to go down in history as the man who lost France’s third Michelin star.” That makes finding a solution all the more difficult, says John. So the market could soon be due another ‘disappointment

downturn’. “Almost any solution would involve a weaker euro. If the ECB prints, then the euro will fall (although I think you could then expect a big surge in stock markets). But any unsatisfactory fudge is also going to be bad for the euro, because it raises the prospect of more turmoil ahead.”

Will China have a hard landing? With the UK, Europe and America all struggling with debt and low economic growth, many investors have been looking to China to lift the world economy. Sadly, even that oasis of good news looks like it could be drying up, says John Stepek: ‘What slower Chinese growth means for your money.’ China is still growing – the most recent stats show the economy expanded by 9.1% in the last year. But that’s the worst growth it’s seen since 2009, and there’s no doubt it is slowing down. The question is: “will it have a ‘soft’ or hard’ landing?” asks John. “There’s a lot of nonsense talked about how China’s ‘command’ economy means they can engineer whatever economic outcome they like”, he says. “The idea that a central authority can somehow create a functional, healthy economy by fiddling with the price of money and forcing banks to lend is ridiculous. It’s like saying you can change the physical location of a mountain range simply by redrawing the map.” Yet “the jury is still out on China”. And anyway, “the horrible truth is that a hard landing in China might be the best thing that could happen to the UK economy. I’m not saying it wouldn’t have nasty repercussions – you could expect a big plunge in stocks for a start. But it’d also drive commodity prices sharply lower. That would remove some of the inflationary pressure that is currently squeezing the life out of British consumers”. “Unfortunately, we can’t bet on that happening either. Who knows? Confronted with a hard landing in China, Mervyn King might just bang the ‘print’ button even harder. That’s why, even although gold might have a period of consolidation ahead of it, it’s still worth hanging onto, particularly for sterling investors”. And you “should hang on to the defensive stocks”.

FOOD PRICES IN JERSEY Mr. John Curran is Director General of the Jersey Competition Regulatory Authority - the body who - independently of the States of Jersey and it’s Ministers - work to ensure that consumers receive the best value, choice and access to high quality services, while promoting competition and consumer interests. He recently stood before the Jersey Chamber of Commerce to outline plans for the future. One of the key areas he asserted that the regulator would be scrutinising in the upcoming year, was something that affects everyone on the Island; the cost of food in Jersey. The insular nature of Jersey is at times a mixed blessing. Though we enjoy a good standard of living - a comparatively higher average wage than our mainland neighbours - and the flat rate of income tax at 20% for decades, the disappearance of much of the Islands Agriculture in tandem with a steady population increase has meant most of our essential food items are imported. There is simply no provision for Jersey enjoy ‘self contained’ food security. Additionally, much of the local produce - even from our much reduced fisheries - goes for export. Although we don’t have VAT here as such, the ‘Goods and Services Tax’ (GST) is a similar concept - if charged at a significantly lower rate. Unfortunately unlike VAT, our version - GST is levied on food.

Words // Rick Jones • Feature Design // Jon Moore

As such, many Islanders from all walks of society feel increasingly ‘held to ransom’ over the cost of food here. After all, everyone needs to eat - no-one escapes - and often in pre-GST days importers or retailers were guilty of marking up the product in lieu of ‘Transport Costs’.

16

Again, unfortunately, Transport Costs are only on the increase. The rapidly depleting fossil fuel deposits and political and civil unrest in many traditional oil producing areas of the World mean that shipping anything anywhere is a much more expensive prospect than it was mere years ago. Exploration into new areas of fossil fuel deposits are all well and good - but they cost massive amounts to implement in themselves, not conducive to reducing the cost of fuel, at least in the short term. What this means to an Island which relies on importation to feed it’s population via road, rail, sky or ocean - or sometimes all four at various stages, is that food prices are going to be increasing without businesses seeking greater margins. It’s circular, as the increased cost of living leads businesses to look to margins to stay afloat. Another thing to consider is the lack of major Supermarket chains here in Jersey. Many of these chains employ ‘loss leaders’ - items such as milk for example - as the son of a Dairy Farmer I remember Tesco selling six pint ‘poly bottles’ to the public

JCRA TO INVESTIGATE at less ‘per litre’ than my Father received from the Dairy - to get people through the doors and buying other, more marked up products. By utilising staples - such as milk they are ensured that customers will come for what they need. These factors all complicate price comparisons between Jersey and the UK. This puts the JCRA in an unenviable position when it comes to regulating competition and fair trading here in the Island.

AREAS THEY MAY ADDRESS ARE; The increased cost of doing business in Jersey. Wages are higher here, as mentioned - this is where it becomes a double edged sword. The above outlined Transport situation also contributes to this - as do higher rents or property values, premises simply cost more. The financial inefficiency in Industries such as Farming and locally operated food retailers. Affected by the issues in the above paragraph, it is difficult for them to achieve the same profits as comparable UK businesses - despite the need to pay higher wages and rents. This undoubtedly pushes up the cost of food unavoidably. Much attention will be paid to the adherence to the Competition Law by retailers and importers. Higher market concentrations here can naturally result in less competition. Businesses may be tempted to ‘help this along’ in the name of survival. As such, the law needs to be sensitively upheld, but upheld nonetheless. Consumer purchasing habits may vary from those in the UK. This seems inevitable given the differences in retail choices and even travel to and from shops. Everything in Jersey is comparatively on the doorstep. It is possible our higher food costs are somewhat offset by the cost of fuel in the UK. For instance, a shopper there might find a Supermarket in the next town offers much lower prices on staple items. Travelling there, however, may cost - with the ever increasing cost of transport/fuel - more than the savings they achieve on the food items. In Jersey, ‘shopping around’ is limited - but it’s cheaper to do. In all, the JCRA intends to conduct - in John Curran’s own words ‘a whole lot more market studies’. He has his work cut out, and the findings should be of interest to everyone on the Island, as they truly do affect us all.

The much anticipated Jersey elections took place last week with Islanders being able to vote for Senators, Deputies and Constables together for the first time. The States of Jersey gained a total of 16 new members but 9 of the current members lost their seats in one of the most exciting elections yet.

THE JERSEY ELECTIONS This year also saw pre-poll voting which allowed people to cast their vote ahead of election day. This was implicated to cater for those who could not get to their polling station on election day and also because of the poor turnout in 2008’s election.

2011

Words // Rebecca Seller • Feature Design // Jon Moore

Polling stations throughout the Island opened their doors at 8am and all of them saw a steady flow of voters throughout the day until 8pm when the voting closed. Many parish halls provided refreshments and saw families and friends heading to their polling station “the elections are a great day to catch up with old friends” commented one voter at the Maufant polling station. There were a few shocks and shakeups along the way and the day turned out to be a historic election day with many States Members losing their seats to new faces. Deputy Bob Hill who was the second longest standing Deputy lost his seat to Steve Luce in St Martin. Mike Jackson, Transport Minister and long-standing Deputy of 18 years who was standing as constable also lost his seat. St Helier No.1 saw long-standing politician Paul Le Claire lose his seat as deputy and top of the poll was newcomer, businessman James Baker. Another shock of the night saw Senator Terry Le Main who was standing as Deputy of St Helier District 2 ousted after 30 years of service. Deputy Debbie De Sousa also lost her seat in the same district. Another newcomer businessman Rod Bryans topped this poll. The Senatorial result means Assistant Chief Minister Freddie Cohen will also be heading out of office. He came sixth with a total of 7,922 votes. Earlier in June he had announced that he would not be seeking re-election in this year’s Senatorial elections. “My thoughts at the time were influenced by several factors including: threatening letters and telephone calls, misleading reporting of planning matters and the resultant effect on my family.” Mr Cohen later decided that “no one should be intimidated by the unrepresentative views of a minority” and decided to stand for re-election. It was perhaps this turnaround that cost him his seat. The biggest achievement of the night went to former Bailiff Sir Phillip Bailhache who topped the poll as senator with 17,538 votes beating the current record of 16,392 by Vernon Tomes in 1993. He topped the poll in every parish except St Helier who placed Senator Francis Le Gresley first followed by Mr Bailhache in second. On his win Sir Phillip commented “I am delighted with the results and very honoured that so many people have voted for me.” The turnout this year was overwhelming. More people had been encouraged to vote due to the difficult times the Island has seen in recent years. Islanders have recognised that States Members make choices that affect us and our lives daily. A few examples in recent years are GST, which levies 5% on everything we buy, the Island Plan 2011 which will affect what we can do with our own homes and land, a register of names and addresses which will include names and be available to all States departments to use and new controls on housing and work.

SIR PHILLIP BAILHACHE VOTES 17,538 REASON FOR STANDING FOR ELECTION: I am standing for election as a senator because I believe that in recent years the States have lost their way, and that political reform is now urgent. ON WINNING: ”I am delighted with the results and very honoured that so many people have voted for me – I would like to thank everyone for their support and I hope that I shall be able to achieve some of the changes that are necessary and be worthy of all the votes given to me.” About me: I am a passionate Jerseyman, and my family roots go deep in this community. I believe strongly that all those who have made Jersey their home, whatever their national origin, have an equal stake in the Island, and a right to enjoy the benefits of the wonderful place in which we live. There are many reasons to feel confident about the future.

SENATOR FRANCIS LE GRESLEY VOTES 14,981 REASON FOR STANDING FOR ELECTION: Just over a year ago you, the electorate of Jersey, showed you had confidence in me by placing me top of the poll in the Senatorial byelection. In my 2010 manifesto I offered you a partnership that if you put your faith in me it would be reciprocated by hard work and strong representation. I believe that I have delivered on those pledges and am now seeking one of your votes on the 19th October so that I can continue the work that I have started. ON WINNING: I am delighted that the public have supported me to have another term of office, I’m particularly delighted about the town votes which probably topped the poll – my style of politics is to represent the “working man” and to look after their interests in the States and I intend to work very hard on their behalf in the next three years. About me: I believe in responsibility. I believe that whilst people have rights they also have duties, not just to their immediate family and circle of friends, but to the rest of the members of society. I have a strong work ethic and a high drive for achievement. I am not frightened of taking on responsibility and I seek to lead by example.

DEPUTY IAN GORST VOTES 15,614 REASON FOR STANDING FOR ELECTION: I have delivered consistently for the Island as Minister for Social Security and as a Deputy for St Clement. I have shown that I am not afraid of making difficult decisions. Further challenges lie ahead and if elected with an Islandwide mandate I will continue to work with all sections of our community to secure the future wellbeing of Jersey. ON WINNING: About me: At the core of every decision I have made is the desire to act in the best long-term interests of our community. I have shown that I am not afraid of making difficult and potentially unpopular decisions, even in an election year. How I come to the decisions that I make is of the utmost importance to me. I strive to take people with me, based on proposals that are sensible and thoroughly researched. Such an approach reflects a deliberate policy of inclusiveness. I am committed to working in the best interest of the Island

LYNDON FARNHAM VOTES 11,095 REASON FOR STANDING FOR ELECTION: “I stand for sense and ability in the governing of our Island during these challenging times” There is a widespread belief in the Island that the States are not performing effectively. The main concerns are that some politicians are motivated more by self interest than the interests of the Island and that some do not have the knowledge, experience or expertise to be able to do the job. In addition to this, I believe that petty squabbling and failure to find solutions to many important issues are costing us all dearly, and have created a great divide in our States Assembly. ON WINNING: About me: My politics are about people. My politics are inclusive. My politics are not about left vs. right or socialism vs. capitalism, my politics are about hope, health, vigour, vitality and opportunity for all. We can all have different political views but I don’t see that as a barrier to working together for the benefit of the Island. I am passionate about Jersey and very protective of our independence, rights and privileges and will defend, with vigour, our constitutional position if necessary. In offering myself for election as a Senator I bring a clear line of thought and a determination to contribute to the creation of a more productive and credible States Assembly.

Jersey Competition Regulatory Authority Letter post should be viable Jersey Competition Regulatory Authority is the ‘watchdog’ for general, postal and telecommunications services here on the Island. As an independent body, accountable to the Minister for Economic Development, it holds responsibility for promoting competition and consumer interests through economic regulation and competition laws. It also advises the States on related issues in times of possible crisis. One recent example seems to hold a positive outlook for Jersey Post, despite uncertain times for other Jersey businesses. AS ONLINE SHOPPING evolved with the growth of technology, Jersey became a major centre for non-store shopping. Jersey based Play Ltd - largely known as Play.com established themselves as the second largest online retailer in the UK market (according to ‘Experian Hitwise’ - an online data service often used to deduce market share). Second only to the Global giant Amazon. Play.com has 7,000,000+ registered customers, a catalogue of over 8,000,000+ products, and it employs around 500 staff here and in the UK. Its website customer interface and the sheer variety of products available have made Play.com a first stop for many online shoppers. Earlier this year, Japanese Internet service company Rakuten Ltd acquired 100% of Play.com stock at the cost of £25m. Given the size and established customer awareness of Play.com, this may seem like fairly small change - but the security of the market share held by Play.com has come under pressure in recent months;

Online retail has taken wholesaling to the masses - the companies with large, varied distribution networks get more customers and are able to bulk buy stock with far less risk than a shop who’s customer base is limited to the High Street it sits on.

‘Low value consignment relief’ meant that customers could order products totalling under £18 without attracting VAT on the purchase - unlike buying them over the counter. Amazon.com ‘preferred merchant’ Indigo Starfish (Indigo Lighthouse) is based in Jersey, and the beauty and health care retailer Feelunique.com - who’s major shareholders are the Jersey based Huggler Hotels group - all benefit from the Low Value Consignment Relief. Guernsey is the base for retail giants Tesco, and the ubiquitous entertainment retailers HMV - for similar reasons. The fact remains that the relief on VAT to the customer outweighs the cost of packing, shipping and handling. RJ910

The success of Play.com - and other similar online retail merchants based here in Jersey - have been due, at least in some part, to a ‘loophole’ in UK VAT policy that allowed Channel Island based internet retailers to charge less for products such as CD’s and DVD’s without conceding profit margins.

However, this loophole appears to be under threat by a move by the UK Chancellor to protect High Street Music and Film retailers, who have suffered huge losses and in some cases bankruptcy since the proliferation of online shopping. The positive effects of such a large Global e-commerce force operating from Jersey are entirely tangible. Employment is one factor - but not just at the fulfillment companies themselves. Jersey Post unsurprisingly consider Play.com a major customer. Many Jersey Post staff are responsible for the shipping of merchandise from the various online merchant’s premises to the UK carriers who take over ‘across the water’. The UK Chancellor’s decision to lower the £18 threshold to £15 before VAT is due may cause Rakuten and the other companies to reconsider staying in Jersey. Although it’s unlikely that a company as established as Play.com or Tesco will lose it’s client base overnight, the lack of the ‘loophole’ may make the shipping across the English Channel outweigh the VAT benefit. It will be cheaper and easier for shipping to be based on the same land mass as the majority of customers. This though, fails to take into account the fact the advantages that online retailers have over physical stores who operate only from their location. Customers want choices and options. In effect, online retail has taken wholesaling to the masses - the companies with large, varied distribution networks get more customers and are able to bulk buy stock with far less risk than a shop who’s customer base is limited to the High Street it sits on. The Chancellors move could be seen as a bad one overall for the entertainment industry. If the product costs more, people may just buy less. This will knock on to the whole entertainment production industry - already under pressure from the reduced costs of digital media distribution. Despite Rakuten’s apparent assurance to Jersey Post that they have no current plans to move the operation - the JCRA, in the interest of the welfare of Jersey economics - has looked into the possibility. They recently declared that a ‘leaner and meaner’ Jersey Post will survive the loss of the major online retail fulfillment operators in the Island.

They would appear to be right. Some would say that the increase of telecommunications - text messaging - internet and email have posed more of a threat to the traditional mail service than imaginable some years ago - yet it still survives. This is despite companies like Natwest moving all their billing to online, a move said to have made a marked effect on deforestation due to the reduction of paper sent by mail. Couriers and Postal services are in a strong position as the Global network continues to expand - allowing customers to make purchases from all over the world. Let us not forget that incoming goods still require delivery. Overall, it would seem that our Postal service is as viable as it ever was - even as the internet and digital distribution of media become more and more a part of everyday life.

...with help from

WORDS Rick Jones - FEATURE DESIGN Jason Bourgeois

Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust house an incredible fourteen-hundred animals at their beautiful thirty-two acre wildlife park. Durrell is a charitable organisation, and to ensure they spend donations and profits where it counts - on their duty of care to endangered species - they typically grow around 80% of the required vegetables, fruit and ‘forage food’ required by the animals. Over the last week one-hundred-and-twenty staff from Santander Private Bank have ‘mucked in’ - literally - to help make the farm even more productive. Jersey Weekly went along to get the story… and lend a hand!

Food security is an issue touched upon elsewhere in this issue of Jersey Weekly. We live on an Island with dwindling agriculture and fisheries, and as such a large percentage of our food has to be imported. The rising cost of transport, along with issues of weather and mechanical problems - along with the perishable nature of fruits and vegetables all add potential for problems to occur Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust is committed to the preservation of endangered species, and this could potentially be compromised if food were to suddenly become a more scarce, and more costly necessity. Luckily, in 1976 Durrell had the foresight to implement their organic farm - the first of it’s kind in UK wildlife parks or zoological gardens. This not only protects the vulnerable and often sensitive animals from modern chemical treatments, growth stimulators and pesticides - the keepers know exactly where the food has come from - but it allows the Trust to sustain their own food supply. Edible flowers, fruit, vegetables, bamboo and cereal crops such as maize are all grown on-site. Hay and leaves are also provided for the enclosures. Bedding, suitable animal waste and grass cuttings - as well as kitchen waste from the staff and restaurant areas - are all composted. Nothing organic is wasted and all ends up back on the farm, negating the need for any chemical fertilisers. This whole process saves Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust around £30,000 a year. These money savings can then be utilised in animal husbandry, breeding programs, research and education. It also neatly sidesteps the need for bulk transport and saves fossil fuel consumption and carbon production.

This year, the Farm is in the midst of an extensive makeover - relocating and renovating to streamline the operations even more - and make even greater savings. Private Bank Santander are long time supporters of Environmental preservation and care. The Jersey branch put their muscles where there mouths are this week, as every member of staff gave up a full working day to lend their hands to the relocation and re-building work. Over the last week they have been; digging and plumbing, earth moving and demolishing, assisting in carpentry, re-surfacing and clearing bushes and hedges and laying floors in ‘poly-tunnel’ greenhouses. They took it in a rota - and each department gave up some of it’s staff on each of the days, so not to leave their ‘ship unmanned’ so to speak. As a keen supporter of Durrell, I went along and lent a hand to ‘Team Wednesday’ - the volunteers who came - funnily enough - on Wednesday; I found the morale of the Santander staff to be high - they were no doubt glad the weather had held out, but I got the feeling that they would have gladly been involved even if the heavens stayed open all day. Wednesday had been earmarked as ‘Earth Moving and Demolition Day’ - the itinerary suggested we would be digging out ‘waste bays’ and repairing the plywood walls under the three year old compost. Not as bad as it sounds - three year old compost has lost it’s smell, and doesn’t resemble anything more offensive than earth! The day before’s team though, had been well ahead of schedule, and as such, much of the digging was already taken care of. Instead teams did the remainder, or alternately cleared some rampant overgrowth caused by the unseasonable sunshine and cut back hedgerows that blocked light from poly-tunnel greenhouses. The work was hard, but I heard not one complaint from any of ‘Team Wednesday’ - the humour was great but everyone was working plenty hard. Apart from myself - and the two ladies I was fortunate enough to work with - disturbing a wasp nest, the day went without incident or injury. Considering office workers, a clumsy journalist and ladders, saws and sickles were involved, it could have been worse! One of the Bankers quipped that his usual work doesn’t involve wielding a machete - and another realised a life long ambition of felling her first tree. They were generally a great spirited and committed bunch, and Santander has reason to be proud of it’s employees. Jane Guest - Head of Marketing and Communications, told us; ‘As key supporters of environmental protection and conservation, Santander Private Banking was delighted to have the opportunity to work alongside our charity partner The Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust. We had a superb week at Durrell helping to relocate the organic farm and all the staff thoroughly enjoyed this rewarding experience. We were extremely lucky with the weather and team morale was high throughout the week. Our people commented on the sense of satisfaction they felt in completing their tasks and took pride in being able to give back to the local community’.

Halloween Tricks, Treats and Tradition. Halloween is one of the oldest holidays still celebrated in modern times. Nowadays it is either a colourful childhood celebration of all things ghoulish (whilst high on sugar!) or another excuse to dress up and hit the town in an outfit Lady Gaga would be proud of. Jersey Weekly wondered just why October the 31st has become a soiree for the spooky, when other traditional celebrations tend to focus on religion or family togetherness? Here’s some Halloween history for you to consider, before you don the vampire teeth and go to ‘scare up’ some sweets from the neighbourhood! The end of October has always been a transitional time across Europe. Straddling the seasons of Autumn and Winter - the times Harvest plenty and the less bountiful period during the cold weather - and to our ancestors, life and death. If the last statement seems dramatic, consider for a moment the lifestyle of Europeans in the ages before Worldwide information was plentiful. Around the end of October the drawing in of evenings - generally, darker days - were accompanied by the lush green vegetation of spring and summer seeming to ‘die off’. Insect species - often abundant to the point of nuisance in the warmer weather - similarly literally died out, most of them (unbeknownst to our forebears) having larval stages that develop, hidden, over Winter to re-emerge in Spring. Likewise many animal species hibernated and effectively disappeared. Birds went South en-masse. The colder weather systemically weeded out those sick and weakened migratory animals - so often the only examples to be found were those unable to ‘make it’ - most of whom would succumb to their condition in short order, if not already dead from the effort already expended. Thus, October’s final weeks became a harbinger of changes… of life and death, prosperity and paucity, long days became long nights and the old and the infirm would often prepare themselves for the ‘next world’. The Romans held an annual feast in honour of the Goddess Pomona - the Deity of fruits and seeds, and also held a ‘festival of the dead’ called ‘Parentalia’ shortly afterwards. The latter was a public holiday devoted to honouring ones ancestors who had ‘passed over’. Some scholars have attributed the origins of Halloween to the above Roman festivities - and indeed ‘bobbing for apples’ is clearly recorded as part of the Pomona celebration. The parallel existence of Celtic tribes across Europe in roughly the same era may hold a further explanation, however; Samhain - pronounced more like ‘sow-heen’ - is more often than not viewed as the Celtic ‘New Year’ festival. It roughly translates as ‘Summer’s end’ and entailed some cultural rituals that seem vaguely familiar to most of us. Pumpkin carving is now symbolic of Halloween - but it began at Samhain with the ‘Souling’ of turnips. This involved carving them into lanterns in honour of souls who hadn’t ‘passed on’ into the next life. Traditionally Irish and Scottish Halloween lanterns are still made with turnips - the practice of carving pumpkins came about when immigrants to the New World found that pumpkins were more readily available as well as easier to hollow out and carve. Souling was also the roots of trick or treating, but this came later when Christianity assimilated the rituals of Samhain.

28

Bonfires played a large part in the rituals - although our modern ‘bonfire night’ is more rightly ‘Guy Fawkes Night’ (fireworks are an homage to the 17th Century fire-starter) - it is likely that fires were much prized as the nights drew in. Thus a cleansing ritual whereby people and livestock passed between two large roaring fires, and bones of slaughtered livestock were cast into the flames. The fires and lanterns were said to ward off the darkness and cold - and with it any evil spirits. Samhain was also a Celtic way of explaining death to children in a period when mortality was much higher. ‘Witches’ were respected people to Pagans - the name derives from the Saxon word Wica - which means ‘wise one’. Samhain was a sacred occasion, and they played a great part. Anointing themselves in oil that said to make them feel as if flying - they carried a stick to vault streams as they ran from village to village. This evolved into the legendary broomstick in popular culture! As Christianity began to spread across the World - from it’s beginnings at the mid 1st century, as a Jewish sect in the Middle East - it often adopted pagan holidays and customs that preceded it’s arrival. This made it easier for newly converted natives to get on board - as the cultures varied so much as to make the missionaries seem alien to the ‘Heathens’. It vilified Witches, which is why much of the imagery pertaining to them these days is ugly and of evil appearance. Samhain did not escape this cultural take over - and as it was held at a similar time of year to ‘All Saints Day’ - then known as ‘All Hallows Day’ - it became ‘All Hallows Eve’. The night before All Hallows Day. Souling was carried over, but now the souls in the Catholic half-way point between Heaven and Hell were honoured with the ‘Jack O’Lantern’. Trick or Treating was born when soul cakes - filled with sweet spices and raisins - were given as offerings for the dead. In the Middle ages children would go out on All Saints Day and call out or sing for the cakes, left over from the night before (as oddly enough ‘the dead’ never collected them!). The trick part is an exacerbated version of the idle threats of mischief made to those who ate the cakes themselves and blamed the spirit world! So this year, spare a thought for those who went before us as you gear up for some ‘phantasmic’ fun - but overall, have a great Halloween - from all of us at Jersey Weekly!

Energy Saving Lighting Solutions LightRabbit is an innovative Jersey based business on a mission to reduce energy consumption. Utilising cutting edge LED technology - until now more commonly seen in traffic and vehicle lights - the company is offering direct replacement bulbs for common fittings. Improved longevity, better light quality and at least 80% efficiency improvements over traditional lighting - from the moment you ‘change the bulb’. With Winter almost upon us - and energy bills constantly rising - it seems timely that we take a look at what LightRabbit has to offer.

Traditional electric lighting - the incandescent ‘bulb’ - dates back to around 1809, when Sir Humphry Davy demonstrated his new electrical battery by passing a current through a thin strip of platinum. It wasn’t practical for illumination purposes, but it became the template for inventors and experimenters. In 1840, Guernsey born Scientist Warren de la Rue became the first of these experimenters to enclose the filament (a platinum coil) in a glass vacuum tube - thus creating the first ‘light-bulb’. By 1878, American Thomas Edison had discovered a cheaper and longer lasting carbon filament that was cheap to produce - unlike the platinum used by others and lasted for over 1200 hours.

In an age where energy costs - and it seems to literally ‘cost the Earth’ - this is unacceptable. As such, there have been several attempts to provide lighting by variations and ‘improvements’ on the concept of the incandescent lamp. Halogen was one of the first commonly adopted ‘improvements’ - and outlasted standard bulbs by re-generating the filament chemically,

We say reasonably because the ordinary lightbulb has always been woefully inefficient. It relies on heating the filament wire to a temperature where it begins to glow. By nature, this means that some 90% of the energy ‘put in’ is ‘put out’ as heat - and only 10% as light.

Words // Rick Jones Feature Design // Jon Moore

The point is; the traditional ‘light-bulb’ that we still see in use today has remained virtually unchanged since Edison. The success of the common bulb was mainly down to the fact that it was cheap to manufacture and ran reasonably well on all kinds - and levels of current.

LightRabbit can save the average home £8,115 from the gas contained in the bulb. They give a higher luminous efficiency too - more light per unit of power - but, they do this by running at much higher temperatures. Thus they are potential fire hazards, sensitive to being touched or moisture and require a coating - not only to reduce dangerous UV - but to contain fragments in the case of a potential explosive failure. Next came compact fluorescent lamps (CFL) - the ‘energy saving lightbulbs’ that have become fairly common these last few years. These use around one fifth of the energy to produce the same amount of light as a standard bulb and have a longer rated life. The problem with CFL’s is the light they produce. Without delving too far into the science, they produce light through phosphors, charged gases inside, and to get the light to the colour we require for daily use, they have to use an increased amount of phosphors - each adding cost and reducing efficiency. They also contain Mercury - a poisonous element that has caused health issues for Chinese factory workers who make these bulbs - and so have to be disposed of very carefully. You also don’t want to break one, because of this. They also lose their performance gradually, over months from the first moment they are switched on, and take a while to reach full brightness when switched on each time. LightRabbit’s founder worked for many years in the Construction and Property Development Industry. The Industry - and the World on the whole is becoming more conscious of the effect we are having on the planet and it’s eco-systems. The impact of energy consumption, dwindling fuel resources and destructive extraction methods are well known. New bylaws are set to come into place to make development more energy efficient. It’s through research into energy saving that LightRabbit was born. Discovering the benefits of LED (Light Emitting Diode) technology - which we will outline below - founder, David Kennedy saw instant opportunity to make a difference - both for the environment and peoples energy bills. LED’s are solid state - the electrons that carry the electrical charge are housed within a solid material - not gas or a vacuum like the older lighting technologies.

There are no moving parts, no fragile thin glass bulbs or tubes and much less heat produced for the same amount of light. They don’t suffer filament evaporation as there is no filament - thus longevity is seriously improved - most LED’s are as good as indestructible. They also maintain their colour when used with a dimmer switch, unlike halogens, which take on a yellow hue as they are dimmed. Also unlike Halogens, LED’s colour is ‘set’ during the manufacturing process - the alloys that create the diode are varied to control the ‘colour temperature’ from ‘cold’ blue/white to ‘warm’ yellow/orange tints etc. This means that they don’t require a coating - the light is bright and accurate, and stays that way regardless of age, continuous use or continuous switching. They contain no harmful elements or materials, unlike fluorescent lamps. The biggest advantage however, is the energy consumption. LightRabbit’s replacement units for standard lighbulbs approach 80% efficiency (80% of energy ‘in’ is light ‘out’), as opposed to the 20% efficiency offered by even the best incandescent technologies. The average household has some 40 lightbulbs - the resultant energy savings for such a household over a year are very impressive - check out www.lightrabbit.com for examples. The quality of the light from LightRabbit units is far superior to that from fluorescent lights or halogens - this results in improved wellbeing and some alleviation of the ‘Winter blues’ as well as eye strain, and thus tiredness. Overall, LED’s are a much improved way of lighting homes, gardens, businesses and office spaces - LightRabbit offer the best prices on the market, they guarantee as much - and base their ethos on the ecological savings. LightRabbit offer free ‘energy audits’ and advice - they have a premises on New St. in St Helier, and their website is highly informative. We certainly recommend you check them out...

The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn When bequiffed young journalist Tintin buys a model of the good ship Unicorn, he also acquires a clue to a great mystery. With his faithful hound Snowy in tow, our intrepid hero embarks on a quest that unites him for the first time with drunken seadog Captain Haddock. Together, they unravel the secret of an ancient feud involving Haddock’s ancestor Francis and notorious pirate Red Rackham. Using state-of-the-art performance capture technology, legendary director Steven Spielberg brings Herge’s hugely popular comic book creation to life in a way you’ve never seen before. An extraordinary array of behind-the-scenes talent includes producer Peter Jackson and a trio of outstanding British writers - Adam Cornish, Edgar Wright and ‘Doctor Who’ supremo Steven Moffat. Also on board are the fab Brit comedy double-act of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as bumbling detectives Thompson and Thomson.

Johnny English: Reborn Still the most successful traditionally animated film in history, Disney’s 1994 feature marked the high point of the studio’s renaissance. Drawing inspiration from Shakespeare and the Bible, its timeless story follows lion cub Simba (Jonathan Taylor Thomas). He expects to inherit the Pride Lands from his father, King Musafa (James Earl Jones). But he reckons without his jealous uncle Scar (Jeremy Irons), who tricks him into going into exile.

The unlikely super-spy returns to cause more hilarious chaos in the espionage world Since we last saw him, secret agent Johnny English has been honing his martial arts skills in a remote region of Asia. But now the call has come through: Her Majesty’s Secret Service needs him back! Summoned by Pegasus, the catloving boss of MI7, Johnny is set to work hunting down a gang of international assassins who plan to bump off the Chinese premier at a heads of state conference.

The Driver’s reserve melts a little for his neighbour Irene, but he exposes a well-hidden vulnerability when he agrees to help her jailbird exhusband out of a tight spot with the mob. A double-cross then leaves him with only one option.

In the year 2020, boxing as we know it is over. Men have been replaced by 2,000 pound, eight foot tall steel robots who take part in corporate, big-money fights. But away from the expensive arenas and lucrative sponsorship deals, there’s a thriving underground scene. It’s here that we meet Charlie Kenton (Hugh Jackman). He’s a washed-up former boxer who ekes out a living bolting together bits and bobs of scrap metal to create low-end fighting ‘bots.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

The Three Musketeers It’s the 1970s, and mildmannered former MI6 agent George Smiley is struggling with forced semi-retirement when he’s suddenly recalled. It seems certain that there’s a doubleagent working for the Soviets right at the top of the ‘Circus’ MI6’s HQ in London’s Cambridge Circus. Smiley’s task is to find out which of his trusted former colleagues has been betraying Britain at the highest level for so many years. A tangled web of rivalries muddies the waters.

Young D’Artagnan is thrilled to encounter the legendary three musketeers - Porthos, Aramis and Athos. But the warrior trio have become disillusioned after the failure of their latest mission. However, a new challenge presents itself in the form of a treacherous plot dreamed up by evil Cardinal Richelieu. To prevent the French monarchy being overthrown, they must take on deadly Milady De Winter and the caddish Brit the Duke of Buckingham.

Down in the sleepy southern town of Bomont, things get all shook up with the arrival of Ren MacCormack (Kenny Wormald) from Boston. The town is still grieving for five teens who died tragically after a night out five years earlier.

He presents Dr Ken McCarthy with the challenge of creating a pioneering prosthetic attachment for the dolphin.

The Art of Getting Dressed: Party Season Interiors Getting dressed used to be a much more elaborate affair than it is today. No self-respecting lady or gentleman would even have considered attempting to get ready alone without the assistance of a servant. Today, things are much more casual but they should still be indulgent; as every fashionista knows, it’s not just about what you wear; it’s about how you put things on.

but you can have a dressing area that reflects your true style and starts the party in your bedroom. Here are our top tips for the perfect party dressing area:

Finishing touches – as Coco Chanel herself recommended, perfume should be your final accessory. And if you’ve invested in an elegant scent, it makes sense to keep in an elegant bottle.

Mirror, mirror on the? – everything. In fact, the more mirrors the better. They open up space, enhance any colour scheme and ensure that you know you are looking your best from every angle.

One eye on the clock – keep yourself fashionably late, without missing the fun. A clock is an essential part of any dressing area.

As we head into the party season with ball gowns and tuxedos at the ready, we suggest that you make getting dressed a lavish experience, rather than a rushed chore. You may not have your own valet or ladies maid,

Keep it light – good lighting it the key to any beautiful room, and any beautiful woman! If you start your toilette in a well-lit area you can be confident all night.

‘An Enchanting and Peaceful Jersey Estate with approximately 5 acres of glorious gardens and grounds’ Le Coin is a substantial property of historical and architectural importance. Enjoying a rural location in the sunny South West area of the Island - Le Coin has always been admired. Indeed, it was once referred to Queen Victoria as; ‘The House on the Hill’ - when Sir John Le Couteur, ADC described ‘the fine house sitting at the top of La Haule Hill high above St Aubins bay.’

Considered to be one of the oldest houses in the parish of St Brelade, Le Coin was originally an agricultural holding, important to the area. Part of the remaining farmhouse still stands - as it has since the 1500s - and forms the eastern elevation of the current house.

Projecting stones stand out from the chimneys - originally to direct rain away from the ‘seam’ where the thatch met the stone chimney, and not required for tiled roofing this necessitated a steeper roof angle for rain run-off. These became known as ‘witches stones’ as folklore implied that the diabolical The house originally had a flying harpies were said thatched roof - and although to perch on them at night. a painting by Tobias Young When you consider that dated around 1815 shows Sinel’s chronology; ‘Jersey tiles and not ‘maslin’ (a mix Through the Centuries’ lists of straws from various cereal ‘an unfortunate woman’ crops) - the pitch of the roof being put to death as a and the architecture of the witch in 1765 - just three chimneys gives this fact years after the door lintel away. of Le Coin was inscribed this must have been a real concern (particularly at this time of year!). Folklore aside, the steeply sloped roof and ‘witches stones’ are the hallmark of a classic Jersey Farmhouse, and add considerable rustic charm to the overall vista of the house sitting in it’s amazing gardens. The house is built in local granite - and considered one of the finest examples of classic Jersey granite houses of the period. The aforementioned door lintel bears the inscription B.I.V. E.D.L. 1762 - this represents ‘Brelade Janvrin’ and ‘Elizabeth du Lecq’ - and the year in which the principal house was constructed.

The Janvrin family were perhaps the leading maritime family in Jersey and owned one of the largest fleets of merchant ships in Jersey. This is reflected in the build of the house, which spared no expense. Further evidence of the maritime connection is displayed in a ‘merchant’s mark’ inscribed in the room to the right of the front door. It’s shape is believed to represent a coastal alarm beacon of the period. Given the commanding view of St Aubin , the ship owning status of Janvrin family and the ‘privateering’ that St Aubin is famous for, it is likely that this was part of everyday life to the occupants. Later in its history - after two and a half centuries of ownership by a number of notable Jerseymen - the house was purchased by the Comtesse de Breteuil, who later married Prince George Chavchavadze direct descendant from the last Georgian King, George XII - who the house was later passed to.

“a historically steeped house that has impressed those who have seen it since the 1600’s. It’s simultaneously impressive and cosy - no small feat - and sits in one of the nicest gardens in Jersey.” After WW2, the distinguished artist and collector Sir Francis Cook and his wife purchased the house. Taking advantage of the climate and the south-facing nature of the grounds, the couple painstakingly re-created the famous gardens of the Palace of Montserrate in Cintra, Portugal, which they also owned. Some of the many mature trees in the gardens though, have been there since the Janvrin family owned the house exotic species that came to Jersey as saplings from the New World by way of the ship owners fleet. The stunning Asian Magnolia trees which skirt the long driveway can probably be attributed to Sir Francis. An original granite cider press also sits in one end of the garden. The house itself enjoys a complete view of these outstanding gardens, and is peaceful and private sat above the bay. Located out of the flightpath of nearby Jersey Airport, it retains a handy walking distance from St Aubin and its many fine restaurants, St Brelade and its shopping centres - including the new M&S and is less than four miles from St Helier town centre.

Issue 104, Friday, 28th October 2011

MOTORING

VEHICLE TYPE: Front engine, rear wheel drive ENGINE TYPE: DOHC 32-vavle V-8

Feature Design // Jon Moore

PERFORMANCE: 0-60 mph 4.2 0-100 mph 9.5 Quarter mile 12.7

The 8C Competizione is a special-edition, two-seat sports coupe that will serve as a kind of ambassador for the line of Alfa cars that should follow. The 8C, reviving the name of the magnificent supercharged eight-cylinder Alfa sports cars of the 1930s, has had its own on/off saga. It was first shown in 2003 as a concept car at the Frankfurt auto show and in production form at the Paris show. Its exciting retro styling is the work of Wolfgang Egger, who has since left Alfa for Audi. The 8C has been dismissed by some as simply a rebodied Maserati, but it turns out to be rather more than that. There are elements from the Maserati Coupé in the structure, and the suspension is lifted from the GranTurismo, but everything above the waistline and all the outer body panels are carbon fibre. The result is a low, stiff structure and a claimed weight of 1500 kilos, hundreds lighter than any other Maserati. Suspension elements are taken from the GranTurismo, and the engine is a development of Maserati’s Ferrari-built V-8, enlarged to 4.7 litres and making 444 horsepower. The transmission is a rear-mounted, six-speed automated manual with paddle controls behind the steering wheel. The engine has a broader power band and a different note—an absolutely glorious bark when the butterfly valves in the exhaust are open beyond 4000 rpm. The electrohydraulic gearchanges are less brutal than a Ferrari’s but are accompanied by even more snap, crackle, and pop from the tailpipes. The suspension is tauter and the steering sharper than a Maserati’s. So the 8C is noisy, agile, and fast—topping 180 mph and going from 0 to 60 mph in an estimated 4.2 seconds, quicker than the Maserati and not far behind a Ferrari F430. Primarily, though, this is a fun car with which to flatter the ego of wealthy enthusiasts. Inside is lined with carbon fiber; the bespoke lightweight seats are trimmed with the finest Poltrona Frau leather; the ­aluminum console and grab handles are machined from solid billet. Owners can, and will, buy specially tailored leather bags to fit on the shelf behind the seats. The only space behind the 23-gallon fuel tank at the rear accommodates a zipped case that is ideal for carrying five or six bottles of Barolo!

Top Buzzer

Top Buzzer then up the ante playing not once, but twice the following night. The first is at Club Kamikaze’s ‘Things That Go Bomp In The Night’ event at Live Lounge - A night in tribute to the late great Bomp nights that Live Lounge held weekly many moons ago. “I used to play at Bomp nights years ago with the likes of The Cryptics when I was playing in Sneak Read-Out. It’s an honor to be asked to play at such an event. So many awesome memories. With Club Kamikaze involved in the night too, it’s definitely one not to be missed”. The line up consists of Top Buzzer along with the long awaited return of Mexican outfit The Meatballs, garage rockers The Cryptics, electro astronauts Brobots and the one-man cabaret show that is The Midnight Expresso.

After their two packed out shows at Easter this year, Top Buzzer are back on the island again for a Halloween treat, this time playing three shows in two nights. The first being Zombie Fright Night at The Star in St. Peter on Friday the 28th of October. This summer saw the band release their debut album ‘Outside Is A World’ on their own label Back2Forward Records receiving rave reviews from national music press such as Kerrang, Rock Sound and Big Cheese and even gaining radio plays on both Kerrang and Q Radio. “Not bad” the band says for an independent and debut release. Now they’re back on our shores to push the album and show the Island what they’re all about. Although based in London, two of the members, drummer Craig Welsh and guitarist Dom Beckford are both actually local lads. After the success of West Fest earlier in the year to a full-to-thebrim venue, Top Buzzer head back up West to The Star along side three local acts including the now legendary ska punkers Bulletproof. “They’ve been going ten years now and get better every time I see them” Craig from Top Buzzer says. “I’ve been going to watch Bulletproof before I was even old enough to get into most venues, sneaking in around the back and that, so for Top Buzzer to play with them finally is gonna be one hell of a night.” Drum and bass math duo Falenizza Horsepower, who are causing a stir not only in the Channel Islands but in the UK aswell, are on the line-up too. “I’ve seen these guys loads, not just in Jersey and Guernsey but in the UK too. They’re probably one of the most original acts about right now. Normally a band like us wouldn’t go down too well with your die hard math rock fans that you get in the UK, but who cares about genres? Not us. We’re stoked to have them onboard. Just watch out they don’t slip any Queen covers into their set.” Topping off the bill are local ‘super band’ Jaded Things featuring members from Moog, Bothered Face and Repeater. “Jaded Things are my favorite band at the moment” Craig says. “I can’t stop listening to their EP they’ve just released. They’ll be giving them out for free on the night too so grab one before they’re all gone. You won’t be disappointed.”

And if town isn’t your thing, Top Buzzer will be dashing quickly down to The Watersplash afterwards where they’ll be playing a set at one of the dance events of the year supporting headliners DJ Fresh and The Freestylers. “This is the first time Top Buzzer will have played at The Splash. We can’t wait to tear the roof off of it” says Craig. More info on Top Buzzer can be found at www.topbuzzer.co.uk

The Jersey Opera House presents The Met: Live in HD Mozart’s Don Giovanni 92

Your weekly full-colour guide to sales and special offers from local businesses.


Issue 104, Friday, 28th October 2011

MUSIC, THEATRE & ARTS

For almost 400 years, there have been abundant interpretations of the legendary lothario, Don Juan, the “Trickster of Seville” - but perhaps none more impressive than Mozart’s Don Giovanni.

Mozart’s Don Giovanni is the second opera in the season of The Met: Live in HD screenings at The Jersey Opera House, with another four scheduled before the end of the year. Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi conducts this new production of Mozart’s classic opera of lust, heartbreak, and revenge, with Mariusz Kwiecien in his first Met performance of the iconic title role. Tony Award-winning director Michael Grandage makes his Met debut with this new production that stars an international cast of acclaimed Mozart singers.” Don Giovanni has a charismatic lust for life, but he’s not just some serial seducer — he’s a dark, complex individual” says director Grandage, who has sought to explore the multifaceted nature of this eponymous anti-hero. None of Mozart’s other operas cover such a wide range of tone, atmosphere, and emotion, from the light-hearted and playful to the threatening and sinister. The audience will be plunged directly into the action in the first scene as Don Giovanni is challenged with a fatal duel in the very first scene. Philip Brieler, The Met’s Managing Editor writes “From this dark and ominous beginning, the story moves toward its climax in a rapid succession of episodes that alternate among the humorous, the serious, and the sentimental.” The 4 hour production contains many of Mozart’s greatest arias and duets, including “La ci darem la mano,” “Madamina, il catalogo è questa,”

“Fin ch’han dal vino,” “Non mi dir,” and “Mi tradi quell’alma ingrata.” The set, costumes and lighting takes its cue from Don Giovanni’s Spanish origins. The set consists of a series of towered walls with balconies and crumbling paintwork in warm, faded Mediterranean colours. These pieces can be arranged in a variety of combinations to reflect the story’s fast-paced episodic structure. Brieler explains that the production of Don Giovanni, whether intentionally or not, carries with it four centuries of backstory. The challenge, then, is to make that story contemporary. “The fact that you’re doing this piece now has to be a big part of any equation,” Grandage sums up. “The word ‘modern’ is very difficult to interpret because the moment you say it people will imagine it’s going to be modern dress, which we’ve decided not to do. It’s all about making the audience feel the piece is for them so they can relate to it in some way. It has to feel modern.” Jasmine Hendry, Jersey Opera House Theatre Director said “our live screenings are becoming increasingly popular as more and more people realise that they can enjoy a night at the opera without leaving the island. Once opera aficionados have experienced the ambience in the auditorium they leave more than impressed.”

RS520

The Screening takes place on Tuesday 1st November at 6pm. Tickets cost £17.50 and with concessions, £15. To book either visit the Jersey Opera House, call the Box Office on 511115 or book online at www.jerseyoperahouse.co.uk

Jersey Film Society presents;

EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP Words by // Rick Jones Feature Design // Jon Moore

Described as ‘A modern day fairytale… with bolt cutters’, Exit Through the Gift Shop is a seminal faux documentary that claims to give the inside story on ‘Street Art’. A brutal account of what transpires when fame, money and vandalism collide - the film is actually a typically tongue in cheek poke at society by infamous artist ‘Banksy’. Known primarily for his striking stencilled graffiti, this film’s origins are much like the artist himself - shrouded in irreverent humour and mystery. This eighty-seven minute insight into the world of street art is not the anarchy fuelled descent into the murky underworld that a film about graffiti might suggest. Banksy’s graffiti is at once brilliant, thought provoking and humorous - and the film continues in the same vein. It’s actually alarmingly clear that the man is a genius, and not just when it comes to making socio-political statements on walls, with stencils and aerosol cans. The film is portrayed as a documentary, filmed by the main character - French born immigrant to Los Angeles, Thierry Guetta. Driven by an odd compulsion to videotape every second of his life, Guetta is a clothes shop owner making a comfortable living in LA. Discovering his cousin is an Internationally renowned street artist who goes by the name ‘Invader’, his interest in the scene becomes the focus of his daily film diary. Whilst visiting his cousin in France he begins making a documentary on the nocturnal activities of the various street artists who he comes to admire. Following a visit to LA by Invader, he becomes acquainted with US street artist Shephard Fairey, and follows his movements with camera in hand even after Invader returns to France. The two embark on a journey across the USA, filming street art ‘celebrities’ for the documentary. Throughout his adventures into the secretive world that seems to split opinion (vandalism, or artistic expression?) he learns of the most secretive - and paradoxically, most famous street artist of them all - the UK’s own Banksy.

Despite constant attempts to contact him, he is left feeling that the man himself may be a mythical creation - his work the elaborate hoax of a network of cunning graffiti artists. Then one day, Banksy arrives in LA and seeks Shephard Fairey, looking to be shown around LA... What follows is a complete twist, and we suggest you go along to the showing at the Arts Centre to be enlightened. The film has received overwhelmingly positive reviews, and was even nominated for the ‘Best Documentary’ at the 2011 Academy Awards. Despite earning this honour, no-one has ever been sure if this really was a documentary - or a scripted movie, made to look like a chance video diary - a la Blair Witch Project. One reviewer stated; ‘I’m not buying it; for one thing, this story’s too good, too weirdly rich, to be made up. For another, the movie’s gently amused scorn lands on everyone’. Banksy himself has only spoken on record about the production of the film, saying; ‘I spent a year watching footage of sweaty vandals falling off ladders’ - which would seem to suggest it is a real documentary. We think the question adds to the fascination - but by all means go along to the Arts Centre, and decide for yourself.

Six unemployed steel workers make the bold move to perform in the buff to pay their bills! Out of shape and out of step, these unlikely performers take on more than they bargained for when they decide to take it all off!

The Jersey Green Room Club presents The Full Monty. The most successful British movie of all time transfers to the stage in this ultimate feel-good musical. It has the same teasing randiness and heart and is sure to be a hit with the ladies. The Jersey Green Room Club, Director, Ian De Gruchy comments “I purchased the licence for the club in 2009 for The Full Monty - I have waited to be able to find a time slot to undertake this show we thought November this year was an ideal opportunity to be able to show this wonderful comedy musical - should I say a winter warmer.” Unlike the film which is set in Sheffield, England; unemployed steelworkers in Buffalo, New York, come up with a bold way to make some quick cash. In the process they find renewed self-esteem, the importance of friendship and the ability to have fun. As the guys work through their fears, self-consciousness, feelings of worthlessness and anxieties, they come to discover that not only are they stronger as a group, but that the strength they find in each other gives them the individual courage to face their demons and overcome them. With heart-warming truthfulness, humour and compassion, ‘The Full Monty’ reminds us that when times are tough we’re all capable of extraordinary acts - but it helps to have real friends you can count on... and a lot of pluck! The story line to the show is exactly the same as the film so expect it to be extremely funny with great characters both male and female. Ian De Gruchy says “there will be lots of laughs and music of different types from rock n roll to ballads and of course some great strip scenes with laughs.” The Jersey Green Room Club has seen some changes in recent years and has just celebrated 100 years with a celebration gala concert. The club has undertaken two major productions a year, one at Xmas and one at Easter however after the 100 year celebration gala concerts success it was decided to put on a third production. Director Ian De Gruchy comments “I am very grateful to the team who have helped in this production - especially my right hand man - musical director Tim Evans and my left hand lady - our dance director Agnetta Nerac.” Mr De Gruchy explains “The six lead men have been really up for this, this last month - they are working very hard to ensure that although this is to be fun they keep in character and really want the last number to be something to be remembered.” So, can they pull it off? Can they keep their antics from their families? And will all be revealed? You can find out at The Jersey Arts Centre from Wednesday 2nd November through to Saturday 12th November. Tickets cost, adult £15, senior citizen and student £13 and opening night tickets are all £10. Suitable for 16 +.

Part of the Robert Tilling Series

American Country Blues Guitar WORDS

Rick Jones

FEATURE DESIGN

Jason Bourgeois

5th November - Jersey Arts Centre One of the late Robert Tilling MBE’s contributions to the arts in Jersey was his enthusiasm for bringing authentic acoustic roots musicians from all over the World. The Arts Centre became a platform over the years for Blues and ‘real’ Country music artists to play intimate gigs to Jersey’s many admirers of these styles which are often overlooked by booking agents. Though Bob Tilling sadly left us earlier in the year, his legacy lives on in this series and does so in suitably impressive style with Mike Dowling; one of the World’s finest guitarists. Although Mike Dowling falls under the genre of ‘Blues Guitarist’, it is selling the Wyoming based singer/songwriter short perhaps. His fluid playing takes influences from ‘Piedmont’ blues - a melodic style that uses syncopated fingerpicking as it’s base - but vintage jazz and honest backwoods country find themselves seamlessly incorporated. With true mastery of the instrument, Mike weaves tunes with real musical depth - and the kind of tone that has guitar players eagerly buying his signature ‘hot plate’ guitar pickup system. Equally at home on flat-top acoustic, ‘National Resophonic’ steel body guitar or vintage arch-top jazz guitar, Mike’s sound is instantly identifiable. The guitarist cliche that ‘tone is in the hands’ becomes clearly evident upon hearing him live. He began his professional career when the ‘Father of Hillbilly Jazz’ the late Vassar Clements, hired him instantly upon hearing him in 1975. Mike joined fiddler Clements (who was very well known across the pond) for live tours, and subsequently featured on the Grammy award nominated ‘Nashville Jam’ album. Vassar said of Dowling; ‘(He’s) One of the finest guitarists there is, anywhere.’ - a sentiment upheld by the many fans, critics and guitar students he was exposed to whilst serving his time with The Vassar Clements Band. When he went solo, he spent more than a decade in the American ‘Music Capital’ of Nashville, Tennessee. Nashville is filled with would be guitar stars - and the standard of talent there soon see’s anyone who can’t keep up fall by the wayside. Ten years in Nashville, including writing songs and recording guitar ‘sessions’ for Emmylou Harris and Kathy Mattea - as well as performing solo - is living testament that this guy can cut it with the best of them. Taking his rich, engaging voice and often self depreciating humour alongside the virtuoso guitar work - out into the often cutthroat world of solo singer/songwriter performing won Mike many fans. Encouraged by this, and realising that he no longer needed the Nashville ‘music machinery’ to make his living playing guitar, he moved to the wide open mountain country in Wyoming. There, between horse riding and trout fishing, he and his wife opened The Greater Yellowstone Music Camp in the beautiful Grand Teton Mountains. Since then he has released a steady stream of albums, seven of which are on his own record label, recorded sessions for some highly respected artists and has been a frequent guest tutor at many ‘guitar camps’. One such camp was the ‘International Guitar Seminars’ annual event - of which Jersey’s own Robert Tilling was a patron and much respected tutor himself. Fitting then, that the series should feature a fine musician who shared the same passion and lifelong devotion as Bob. Mike Dowling will perform on Saturday 5th November at 8pm. Tickets cost £17 (Adult) or £11 (Student), and are available from the Box Office at Jersey Arts Centre on 01534 700444

Returning to Jersey by popular demand - they rocked Jersey’s Opera House in 2009 - are eclectic Celtic/Rock/Pop band Quill. What’s more, they are bringing a large contingent of their Midlands based fans with them to the Mayfair Hotel - so the atmosphere is guaranteed. Dynamic and polished live performers, the hard working six piece ensemble, Quill, describe their sound as; ‘a unique musical style that has captured many varied influences - playing Celtic folk hued Fleetwood Mac influenced rock since before the Corrs were invented.’ Speaking to Jersey Weekly, lead vocalist Joy Strachan-Brain told us; ‘We have had great support locally over past trips we had to Jersey and hope this one will be the same. About 100 people will be travelling with us and staying at the hotel.’ Joy and her ‘partner in crime’ - the band’s fiddle player Kate McWilliam blend a highly energetic stage presence with vocal harmonies, whilst Kate’s fiddle sound duels with Paul Sargent’s deft guitar lines. The solid backing of Dave Bailey (Keyboards and Vocals), Ben Brain (Bass and Vocals) and Jason Roper (Drums) drive the set - which consists of a blend of classic covers and thoughtfully penned original songs from their debut album ‘PRIVILEGED’. The band are veterans of the UK and European festival circuit - and are frequently a highlight of the annual

‘Americana’ festival in Newark. No strangers to the rigours of travel - and despite some of their ‘dressing rooms’ consisting of tents, portacabins, broom cupboards and tiny caravans with no electricity, they always manage to put on a show to remember. No doubt the hospitality of the Mayfair Hotel, along with Jersey’s laid back atmosphere, will see the band hitting the stage in top form. You can expect high energy, humour and plenty of dancing in the stage show - and no doubt the UK fans along for the weekend will join in and encourage locals to follow suit! A more recent offshoot of the festival schedule for the band is their new ‘Acoustic Set’. Designed to showcase the bands skillful vocal harmonies. The band perform a different set list than the Celtic Rock show - one that includes popular classics by The Dixie Chicks, Kansas, Amy McDonald, Gerry Rafferty and Styx plus some brand new original material. What this means for fans and folks who go along to the Mayfair on November 5th, is that instead of a support act preceding them, the band will play their acoustic set. Then, suitably warmed up after the interval, the full show will commence - full throttle.

Ticket prices are as follows £10 - Entry Only £25 - Entry & Evening Meal £50 - Entry, Evening Meal, Overnight Stay & Breakfast at The 3* Mayfair Hotel

Lucy Sanderson & Stefan Rossi Local author, Stefan Rossi, spoke to Jersey Weekly about the second book to be released in his trilogy of stories riddled with psychology, murder and trickery… Just in time for Halloween… Stefan, you’re launching your second book entitled, ‘Nursing You Back To Death’... Without giving too much away, what is the book about and where did the story come from? The second in the Personal Chaos trilogy is now set for release. It is aptly titled “Nurse You Back To Death” It focuses on the troubled main protagonist Arlington Schafer. Arlington is tasked to go on a special operations mission in West Germany. A far left political organisation known as Silver Fire is planning to knock off the President of the USA and The Prime Minister during their visit to Jersey with the Soviet Premiere. The strike goes to plan but Arlington becomes addicted to mood stabilising drugs and commits two sickening murders in the Island. He goes into a coma and is taken to St Saviour’s for psychiatric observation (This sees the start of the final in the trilogy – I Touched A Cloud?) Nurse You Back To Death is fast, humorous and plays into the darker creature habits of mankind. The story also sees the introduction of some new characters, namely a very interesting female lead by the name of Carly Telfer. Carly is an operative working for “The Det” (a genuine secret British outfit of highly trained operatives primarily used for surveillance work in Northern Ireland) She is attractive, bright and charmingly sassy. She can match the Special Forces drink for drink, outwit captors and is as tough as steel. She is there to add elements of humour, female ingenuity and very fun to be around. Carly is actually based on a girl I know and am very fond of! How long did it take you to write this current novel? It took approximately five months to write the story and a huge amount of time was devoted to checking military accuracy and how the human body would react and respond to drugs such as Sodium Valproate and Lithium. It was all the more difficult as Arlington had a murderous hypnotic command placed into him as a teenager. Arlington is dark, devious, cunning and hopelessly lonely. His sole

The biggest challenge in writing the trilogy was conveying Autism into a fictional setting and trying to phrase the script in such a manner that a Neuro-typical (Someone who is not Autistic) would understand (Only one in one hundred Is Autistic) I was diagnosed with it earlier this year and although not overly surprised to be Autistic, it has had an impact on my outlook on life since. What sort of advice would you give other budding writers? How do you overcome the challenges you mentioned? My advice to writers or artists of any description is simple – You need to immerse yourself in your work just like Beethoven did and compose away. I personally “lock” myself in a room, crank up the Smiths and The Stone Roses and blast away at the keyboard. Does Jersey inspire your writing at all? What inspires me most is my love for music and my unique insight into the National Psychology – Being Autistic, I interpret information differently. Through music and psychotherapy, I explain the world in its natural light. What’s next for Stefan Rossi? What’s next for me is the new book – It’s called “Listen to my hands” and is about a female stalker called Kathryn Wilby. Kathryn runs Sennen Cove Coffee by day and skateboards through St Helier Town by night. She people watches, studies her customers and plots against those who cross her path.

To celebrate the launch of his second novel, Stefan is throwing a party at Blush from 7pm on Friday 18th November. For £20 guests will be given a copy of Stefan’s new book whilst enjoying a buffet and listening to a few words from Stefan. The third part of the trilogy is almost polished and ready too, so no doubt you can expect to see a lot more from Stefan Rossi.

Eating Out

by Mark Bradbury, news@jerseyweekly.com

The Navigator, La Brecque Du Nord, Rozel Harbour, Trinity • enquiries@navigatorrestaurant.co.uk • 861444

THE NAVIGATOR IS A REMOTE yet well-known restaurant for its great selection of impressionable food and picturesque setting overlooking Rozel harbour. A highly commended spot great for a romantic meal or small intimate gatherings with a warm and cosy feeling. Upon entering my guest and I were greeted by a great waft of aromas, and although I had already taken a look at the menu and had in mind what my selection would be, this welcome caused a possible re-evaluation. To start my guest had the Insalata Di Peperoni, which is a simple salad in the style deriving from the region of Campania and consisted of roast peppers marinated in garlic and olive oil and served with traditional Parma Ham and fresh mozzarella. I opted for a twist on the popular Moules Mariniere, which in this instance included not only local Moules but another local yet less used delicacy of Clams (which are smaller and a little firmer and more dense that moules) served in a rich white wine, coriander, onion and bay leaf broth.

As for mains my guest opted for the mixed grill of fish, a platter consisting of Sea Bass, Salmon, Sardine, King Prawn and Gambas cooked in a garlic and white wine sauce; whilst I decided my preference would be to please my carnivorous side and went for the medallions of beef with a healthy amount of rather unhealthy mushroom and brandy sauce to compliment. Both meals were served with a selection of seasonal fresh vegetables and roasted new potatoes. The potatoes were crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy in the centre, whilst the vegetable were the perfect al-dente. Both my guest and I were fairly full at this point, but we thought we should at least try a dessert. I went for the tiramisu as recommended by our very friendly and attentive waiter whilst my guest opted for a luxuriously rich chocolate cake. All in all, the experience is one to remember, a combination of restaurant location, style and ambience with great service and wonderful food. One to try if you haven’t done so already.

Words // Rick Jones • Feature Design // Jon Moore

Entrepreneur Jonathan Segal is the driving force behind some of the hospitality industries greatest success stories worldwide. It may be hard to imagine these days, but the vibrant businessman - who’s $100 million valued One Group have pioneered successful new ventures across twenty-four markets in difficult financial times began as a 16 year old ‘broom boy’ for Jersey family owned modern hotels group. His work ethic is as tireless these days as it was then - a fact borne out by his latest venture - six new restaurants in the US in the next three months, and plans to bring the brands to europe shortly afterwards.

104

US based lifestyle magazine network ‘Haute Living’ have a mission statement that proudly declares a strong focus on ‘inspiring power players and unstoppable business moguls’. Earlier in the year, they fittingly interviewed Jersey’s own Jonathan Segal - fittingly, because he has embodied the unstoppable part from the beginning to the present day in his professional career. Inspiring because the recession that had other International Hospitality luminaries fearing for their future hasn’t seemed to have broken the stride of his ONE Group and it’s expansion into new areas. Indeed, speaking in Haute magazine, Mr Segal declared; ‘You always do your best work in a recession where you plan for the turn.’ This remarkable adaptive, positive outlook is made all the more palpable when you realise that his ONE Group generated $45 million last year in revenue. That is expected to jump to at least $85 million this year, and $140 million in 2012. Part of this success is down to the concept and execution of it’s STK Steakhouse brand; the first STK was a highly celebrity endorsed restaurant in New York’s Meatpacking District. It’s advertisement motto declared it ‘...not your Daddy’s steakhouse (sic).’ The concept was a restaurant that avoided all the trappings of traditional male dominated steakhouses - the buffalo horns on the walls and eating contests - and offered a far younger, more fashionable and unisex environment. It re-invented the format and featured (on one of it’s three floors) the TenJune Lounge. According to it’s website; ‘TenJune have been visited by celebrities such as Cameron Diaz and Beyonce, have hosted countless premier parties and have been the talk of fantas-

tic reviews and press clippings.’ Based on this runaway success, the ONE Group are in the process of rolling out six new restaurants that offer a variation on the theme. The six ‘STKout’ restaurants will be more competitively priced, health conscious versions of the original eatery in NYC. Their motto will be ‘A Girl’s Gotta Eat’ - clear indication of the target market. The fare is said to be either lighter wraps and healthy snacks - or ‘comfort food’ - rich ‘mac and cheese’ and other favourites. This doesn’t mean the guys aren’t included, but these eateries are also designed to be part of a night out. In a wily observation that demonstrates his knowledge of Hospitality - and people - he stated in Haute Magazine; ‘Dangle a woman in front of them and most men will follow on their knees with dog collars around their necks’. We hate to say it, but he may be right! These will open in four areas initially. Two will open in NYC, one in Atlanta, Georgia and another Atlantic City, but the nature of the franchise should see any success carry it across the continent - or possibly the Globe. Maybe even Jersey, given the connection. Alongside STKout’s market debut, Mr Segal has been working to develop a new French Bistro ‘Bagatalle’ on NY’s 9th Avenue and a similar Bagatalle in Los Angeles, California. In summation, no-one should feel that living in Jersey is necessarily a block to achieving success. From his beginnings, in his own words; ‘pushing boxes around better than the next guy’, Mr Segal has taken his drive and energy, and is making waves across the Atlantic. We the ONE Group continued success, and thanks for the inspiration!

Local Children’s Charity Win Sailing Challenge

Jersey win against Sedgley Park

Jersey cruised to an ultimately comfortable victory in a game that, while not dirty, was marred by six yellow cards. Local charity Earsay, renamed from the Jersey Society for Deaf Children and Young Adults, recently beat seven crews to win the 2011 Le Tournoi Sailing Challenge and come runners up, by a single point, in the European EUROSAF Championship. Seven Beneteau 40.7 yachts took part in the third Le Tournoi Sailing Challenge in September, which included five races between The Solent, Guernsey, Herm, Sark and Jersey over a five-day period. The Earsay crew, a split of both novice (6) and experienced sailors (2) along with a split of hearing (6) and hearing impaired (2) individuals, soon proved formidable opposition by coming 2nd in both of the initial races and then clocking up first places for the final three races, culminating in an overall win. Mark Burby, Earsay Chairman commented; “We took this opportunity to take part in the sailing challenge to bring attention to our new identity but to also bring attention to the fact that hearing and hearing-impaired individuals can work together to achieve the same challenging goals, and indeed the overnight race was a challenge. Yes we had a competitive crew, but we didn’t actually consider that we’d win. It just goes to prove that irrespective of sailing or hearing-ability that in an environment where there is an educated awareness then a strong unit can succeed, be that a sailing crew, a group of young friends, a workplace or a community. We hope that this success has empowered individuals and businesses to consider the hearing-impaired community and make ways to integrate with them” Earsay are a local Jersey Charity that provides support to Jersey’s hearing impaired children, young adults and their families. The support is provided through organised events for children and their families, through funding the provision of life enhancing technology, funding team/family awareness events in the UK and providing or showcasing inspiring opportunities or individuals. In addition to this Earsay are soon to launch a community wide awareness initiative their: “Earsay Friendly Business” directory and would love to hear from businesses that feel they should be included in.

At one stage in the first half Jersey’s 14 men were up against 12 from Sedgley Park following a bout of fighting that saw hookers Charlie Clyde-Smith and Richard Oxley carded along with Park’s Adam Lewis. Visiting skipper Garth Dew had already received an early yellow for killing the ball and in the second period Steve O’Brien ( Jersey) and Matt Riley (Sedgley) were also ordered from the fray. Donovan Sanders and James Copsey scored the first half tries that reflected the home team’s dominance in building a 17-0 lead. Jersey also started the second half strongly, with Copsey crossing for his second within five minutes. The visitors’ best spell came in the middle of the second half when prop Nick Flynn and flanker Dew scored tries that rewarded some strong attacking play, briefly threatening Jersey’s hegemony. 17-year-old debutant Chris Levesley was a lively presence throughout for Jersey and crossed the line twice in the second half only to be called back by the referee. But the home team secured their try bonus point with five minutes to play when Ed Dawson squeezed over in the corner from replacement Ross Broadfoot’s pass. Mike Le Bourgeois maintained a perfect record with his touchline conversion. Star Man: Mike Le Bourgeois ( Jersey) Jersey Tries: Sanders 10, Copsey 32, 44, Dawson 75 Conversions: Le Bourgeois 10, 32, 44, 75 Penalty: Le Bourgeois 20 Sedgley Park Tries: Flynn 50, Dew 56 Harf Time: 17-0 www.jrfc.je Photos available on www.jerseyevents.com

EVERTON v MANCHESTER UNITED Saturday 12:00

sharp under new boss Alex McLeish. If Villa want a shot at European football next season, now could be a pretty good time to travel to the Stadium of Light.

Everton boss David Moyes claims it’s one of his favourite ties, and with Wayne Rooney back to face his old club, Saturday’s early kick-off promises a lively match-up. United have beaten the Toffees 28 times in the Premier League – more than any other club – and they are yet to be beaten in any competition this season. Everton have been inconsistent lately but they usually put up a pretty good front to United at home: the last time Everton lost to United at Goodison Park was in September 2007. CHELSEA v ARSENAL Saturday 12:45 A London derby is always a spectacle, although Arsenal are still mourning their worst ever start to a Premier League campaign, and they’ve beaten title contenders Chelsea just three times in their last eight. They’ve also failed to beat any of the top teams so far this season, and a result at Stamford Bridge could be crucial to their recovery. A win would also be a boost for Chelsea, too, who have had their title hopes somewhat overshadowed by the jostling for top spot between Manchester rivals City and United. MAN CITY v WOLVES Saturday 15:00 When Manchester City lost at Molineux 12 months ago, Adebayor and Kompany rowed on the pitch, and Carlos Tevez went AWOL. This time round Tevez is again out of favour, but Adebayor is long gone and captain Kompany has steadied the ship enough to see City gunning for Premier League honours. They’ll be looking for no fewer than three points at home, while perennial relegation contenders Wolves will have a tough task trying to tussle them for the honours: the last time Wolves won a league game at City’s home ground was in December 1979. NORWICH v BLACKBURN Saturday 15:00

The last time these sides squared up in any competition was nearly 20 years ago in an old Football League Division 2 game at Burnden Park; the same season they were promoted back to Division 1. Yet the clubs might find themselves on more even footing this time round – Bolton are still reeling from a nightmare run of results to the league’s top teams, while Swansea have had a fairly bumpy induction to life in the top flight. Still, the Welsh side are yet to be beaten at home, and a three-pointer for Owen Coyle’s side could be a tough task. WIGAN v FULHAM Saturday 15:00 Another team, another disappointing start to the season: the North-Westerners have one home win to their name in this campaign, and while Wiganers might have been happy to keep boss Roberto Martinez this summer, they’ll also be wary that, come May, they could well be facing another relegation battle. Fulham have rectified a poor start with a run of reasonably healthy results, and they also have the better record – they’ve not lost at the DW Stadium since October 2005. WEST BROM v LIVERPOOL Saturday 17:30 Roy Hodgson should be looking forward to the visit of his old club – he led the Baggies to a 2-1 victory over Liverpool last season, just weeks after his dismissal by the Merseysiders. Since then, however, Hodgson’s successor Kenny Dalglish has managed to transform Liverpool’s fortunes, putting them back on course for Champions League football. Albion may need all the points they can get if they’re to avoid the drop this year, but the Reds will be hungry for revenge. TOTTENHAM v QPR Sunday 16:00

Premier League new boys Norwich will fancy their chances at home to Blackburn, with Paul Lambert’s side finding their feet at the top level. Blackburn, meanwhile, are languishing at the wrong end of the table after a woeful start to the season. Fans aren’t happy that boss Steve Kean still has a job, and a stylish win could well be the only thing to save his skin. Rovers will be boosted by the fact that they haven’t lost a game to the Canaries since 1994, but Norwich will be fighting tooth and nail to keep their place in the Premier League, and if they do get the result at Carrow Road, it could be at Blackburn’s expense.

The second London derby this weekend could be another TV highlight, if QPR can find their form. They’ve faced some pretty hefty defeats so far this season, but they’re also capable of scoring a few, too, and with new summer signings Joey Barton, Anton Ferdinand and Jay Bothroyd they should at least be able to hold their own in the Premier League. Tottenham could be tough to beat at home, though – they’ve lost just once at White Hart Lane this season. STOKE v NEWCASTLE Monday 20:00

SUNDERLAND v ASTON VILLA Saturday 15:00 Steve Bruce is another manager under the spotlight, with Sunderland struggling for form. Despite an influx of superstar signings this summer, the Black Cats have failed to make an impact: they’ve won just once at home all season. They do have the better recent record against Villa – winning both legs 1-0 last season – but, despite the odd slip-up, Villa are looking

108

SWANSEA v BOLTON Saturday 15:00

Newcastle are, without doubt, this season’s wildcard – now nine games in, the Tynesiders are yet to lose a match, and could well be on course for a top four upset. It’s an impressive start when you consider that, just 18 months ago, they were playing Championship football. Stoke are also doing pretty well to cash in on last year’s heroic FA Cup run, and they are yet to be beaten at the Britannia Stadium this season.

WHO’S INVOLVED? ‘Although we started out as a small team established for the Scottish community of Jersey, thanks to our extensive international scouting network we now have a diverse mix of playing and coaching staff,’ says Paul. In 50 years the club’s catchment has expanded to such an extent that Jersey Scottish is one of the most multi-cultural football clubs on the Island. ‘The club is now made up of several different nationalities, including Jersey, Scottish, English, Irish, Polish and South African,’ he says. It’s now a senior men’s club, and a countless number of current and past players have gone onto the represent the Island in the annual Muratti and the biennual Island Games. Every year, in fact, Jersey Scottish fields Island-level players, and some even go onto achieve greater success: manager Pat Brennan is a former Dukla Pumpherson FC player, and Jack Boyle has played for Southampton FC and Michael Weir currently plays football for Portuguese side CD Nacional. ‘We did also, until recently, have a junior section, but it unfortunately folded last year because of a lack of players. It’s disappointing, though, as we are the club closest to St Helier,’ says Paul.

Words // Marcus Quinn • Feature Design // Jon Moore

VITAL STATS Club: Jersey Scottish Football Club Founded: 1960 Members: 40 active playing members Cost of membership: £50.00 Other costs: Jersey FA membership - £35.00 Interesting fact: Although called Jersey Scottish, the club is actually represented by eight different nationalities. Contact: Club secretary Stephen Langan, 769288 Website: www.jerseyscottishfc.co.uk

WHAT’S THE ATTRACTION? Football is arguably the Island’s biggest sport, with nearly 3,500 registered players, and Jersey Scottish is one of the Island’s most successful clubs. First team coach Paul Brannan says: ‘Football is such a popular sport because it caters for people of all abilities – from those who just like to have fun, to those who are looking to compete at the highest level of Jersey football.’ Officially there are 1,842 senior men, 132 women and 1,366 young players between the ages eight and 18 years old who play for 19 different affiliated clubs.

WHAT’S THE BACKGROUND? Jersey Scottish was founded in 1960 as a local team for the Scottish community of Jersey, and the club has just celebrated its 50th anniversary. The club officially joined the Combination League in 1979, and has since gone on to become one of the most successful club sides in the Channel Islands.

WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT? ‘We play all our home league matches at Springfield Stadium, and most home games before Christmas are usually played on a Tuesday night. All other league and cup competitions are played on Saturday afternoons,’ says Paul. Training is on Tuesday and Thursday evenings during the season, which starts in July with preseason training. Football fixtures start in August and run, next year, until March. The club also runs various social events throughout the year, including golf days and various charity events.

110

WHAT’S THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE CALENDAR? Probably the Clydesdale Bank international football tournament, which is held at the end of the season in Guernsey. This year, Jersey Scottish joined Guernsey Rovers and the academy sides of Norwich City and Hearts for a two-day at Foote’s Lane. ‘Officially – it’s really good experience for the players to test themselves against professional opposition. Unofficially, it’s one hell of a night out!’ says Paul.

WHAT CHALLENGES DO THE CLUB FACE? ‘We always have financial challenges, as we do not own our own ground. This means we are really limited with things like advertising,’ says Paul. Luckily, however, Jersey Scottish boasts a loyal sponsor in Clydesdale Bank, and that enables the club to compete in the league each season. ‘Clydesdale Bank are a superb sponsor and we are very fortunate to have them, because that not only allows us to play at Springfield Stadium, and to enter off-Island competitions, but they also provide all our players with a training gear and a tracksuit each,’ says Paul.

WHAT’S THE FUTURE? Scottish are already dominating the Jersey Combination Premiership this season, having won each of their opening four games – as well as the coveted Charity Cup. They are unbeaten in all competitions so far this season and, says Paul, long may it continue. ‘Our ambition at Jersey Scottish is to become dominant once again in Channel Islands football. After going through a transition period in the last four years we are now showing signs of taking the club forward. We are currently sitting top of the Jersey Premiership and have won the first competition of the season, the Charity Cup,’ he says,

HOW DO YOU GET INVOLVED? ‘Anyone can turn up at training by contacting the club secretary, Stephen Langan, for details. Our door is always open,’ says Paul.

Clear investment. Pure energy.

Gas bill. Oil bill. Ouch. Megahertz. Wow. Electricity prices frozen for a third winter. Domestic oil and gas prices have risen by an uncomfortable *87% and *41% in the past two years to June, while Jersey Electricity prices have fallen. We cut prices by 5% in 2010, froze them this year and now we’re maintaining tariffs at current levels again to help you keep warm this winter. That’s twoand-a-half years of stable prices. Affordable, secure and sustainable electricity.

Isn’t it time you made the switch?
