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

Haut de la Garenne residents want to sue A group of former Haut de la Garenne residents want to sue the States at the High Court. 38 victims of alleged abuse say the States are taking too long to compensate them. The UK lawyer representing them says they will each separately sue the government for damages. Alan Collins from the UK law firm Verisona Solicitors and Advocates is representing the victims. He spoke to Channel 103: “They’re [the victims] increasingly frustrated by what they see, rightly or wrong, as provocation and avoidance and they’ve had enough. So let’s get them in front on a judge at the High Court in London and let the judge decide whether or not they’re entitled to be compensated”. Health and Social Services weren’t happy. They issued a statement saying that the issuing of the proceedings was both ‘disappointing and unnecessary’ They claimed assurances had been given to lawyers that the claims would be dealt with as soon as possible. A spokesman has said there’d been an unfortunate delay the cause of which has just been dealt with, and the States can now start dealing with the claims.

the person to lead the Island through troubled times. He’ll be facing competition from Senator Ian Le Marquand and Senator-elect Ian Gorst. Senators Paul Routier, Alan Breckon and Philip Ozouf are all possible candidates. The States will choose a new Chief Minister on 14th November.

Murder suspect in court Damian Rzeszowski, – the man accused of the murder of 6 people in St Helier in August - appeared in court for the second time last week. Mr Rzeszowski was seen by video link from the UK during the short hearing of the Royal Court. He didn’t speak during the sitting and with a thick beard and dark hair, was unrecognizable from the blond images previously released. The court heard that Mr Rzeszowski is undergoing medical assessments in the UK. Izabela Rzeszowksa, her children Kinga and Kacper, their grandfather Marek Gartska, friend Marta de la Haye and her daughter Julia were all found with stab wounds at Victoria Crescent on 14th August. The case was adjourned until the 19th of March.

Hands up for Chief Minister

Motorcycle cops return to Jersey.

Sir Philip Bailhache – poll topper at Jersey’s most recent election – revealed last week he intends to stand for Chief Minister.

They’ll be used to beat the traffic to respond to emergencies, crime and primarily serious road accidents.

‘Barnacle’ rescued from rocks

Ribbon cut at Town Park

A week-old seal pup was rescued from the rocks at Corbiere last week.

11 years after the millennium and 16 years after the idea was first muted Jersey’s new Town Park’s been unveiled.

‘Barnacle’ was found sheltering from the swell in big tides.

Hundreds of Islanders along with States members and our new Lieutenant Governor Sir John McColl watched Transport Mike Jackson declare it open. If you haven’t had a peak yet take a look at our pictures at www.facebook.com/channel103

Join Anthony in the saddle Anthony Lewis – who amazed doctors by walking the Jersey marathon after suffering a serious stroke 4 years ago – revealed his latest challenge last week. Anthony wants to cycle from London to Paris and take 124 Islanders with him. The former journalist’s keen for the company because that number represents how many Islanders will have a stroke in Jersey this year. Anthony surpassed all expectations when he walked the entire route of the Jersey marathon after the stroke left him severely disabled. His partner Suzi told Channel 103 anything’s now possible: “He’s not actually been out on a bike on the road yet but I remember him telling me he wanted to walk the Jersey marathon and I thought oh my, is he ever going to do it.

Our police force will be attaching two motorbikes to each police unit.

And he did and I wouldn’t put anything past him now. He wants to cycle from London to Paris and I’ve got absolutely no doubt, he will.”

Chief Inspector John Sculthorpe told Channel 103 it’s part of the drive to get the police being seen in the community.

If you’re interested in joining Anthony on his challenge contact Victoria Millar at jersey@stroke.org.uk

The British Divers Marine Life Rescue who saved the pup think Barnacle had become separated from his mother. At only a week old the pup wouldn’t have been able to swim and so had to be moved with the tide rising. Apart from some grazes on its head, chin and front flipper, it was alert and in good health. New Era vets looked after Barnacle until he was well enough to be flown to a seal sanctuary in Cornwall. It’s hoped once he’s old enough he’ll be released back into the wild.

The sand’s a canvas The sand became a canvas at the world’s first ever Beach Art World Championships last week. Five ‘beach artists’ from Jersey, the UK, France and the US each had 4 hours to create a masterpiece before the tide came up. Plus lessons and demonstrations had been given the day before at Ouaisne. Beach artist Andy Moss had come from Yorkshire to compete. He spoke to Channel 103 before the event: “We’ve planned what we’re going to do – we’ve got a whole design sketched out. But a bit concerned at how much time we’ve got to do it in, we’ve heard you get really big tides here”. If you missed it, don’t worry TV helicopters from the BBC series ‘Coast’ filmed the finale.

Channel’s Mark McQuillan prepared for a marathon fundraising challenge

Health and Social Services by the new Lieutenant Governor, General Sir John McColl, and his wife, Lady McColl, on Friday 28th October, as they toured Health and Social Services on an inaugural visit.

Channel Television presenter Mark McQuillan will take the Channel Islands’ fundraising effort for Teenage Cancer Trust (TCT) to the Big Apple when he competes in the New York City Marathon on 6th November 2011. Mark hopes to raise as much money as possible for Channel Television’s chosen charity when he takes part in the challenge which will be watched by around 2 million people. Mark will begin the 26.2 mile run in Brooklyn and run past most of the city’s major landmarks, crossing the Brooklyn Bridge, heading into Queens and then on to Manhattan. He will be in star-studded company, with famous faces such as actor Ed Norton, P Diddy and Will Ferrel all having taken part in previous years. On the subject of his training, Mark said: “I’m really looking forward to running the marathon now. The hard yards of the training are out of the way (I did a slow and draining 20 miler at the weekend!) so it’s just a case of counting down to the big day now.” “I’ve never run a marathon before so this is a big challenge and I hope I’m up to the task.” “I’d love to raise a decent sum for TCT. It’s a terrific cause and it would be great to raise as much as possible towards the charity’s new unit at Southampton Hospital.” TCT works to provide specialist treatment and units for young people with cancer, and is aiming to raise enough money to build a much needed unit at Southampton Hospital. Around £2m is needed to build the specialist Teenage Cancer Trust unit. So far Channel Television has helped TCT raise almost £230,000 this year. Since January 2011 Channel Television has been involved in many fund raising events for TCT, including hosting a charity fashion show and supporting Blue Day on 7th October. Helen Haynes, Regional Appeals Manager for TCT said: “We are so grateful to Mark for taking on this fantastic challenge in the Big Apple on behalf of Teenage Cancer Trust. Young people with cancer in Jersey will benefit from all the support he receives and we encourage as many people as possible to sponsor Mark and help him reach his goal!” Mark is on the island and available for interview up until Wednesday November 2nd.

Lieutenant-Governor to see new mammography information system on inaugural visit to HSSD A new computer system which will manage the invitation and management of breast screening appointments, results and recall for further screening or further investigations has been introduced in Jersey. This was one of the key points of interest on a visit to

Minister for Health and Social Services, Deputy Anne Pryke said: “I am delighted to welcome His Excellency, General Sir John McColl, and Lady McColl to Health and Social Services, so they can see first hand the varied work our hard working staff do across so many different areas of health and social care. I am very proud of our staff, and the many services we provide for Islanders. I hope that the visit gives the Lieutenant Governer and Lady McCall an insight into the work we do, across many specialised fields.” Following his visit to the Hospital to see the new system, the Lieutenant Governor and Lady McColl also visited the Hospital’s intensive care unit, before driving to St Mark’s Hostel, which provides a home for vulnerable young people, and Maison Jubilee, a group home for people with special needs. The new mammography information system is being implemented this month, in line with breast cancer awareness month. The new system enables staff to adopt new working practices that will improve patient safety, save time and reduce duplication. One of the advantages of the new system is the automated appointment scheduling which ensures women are automatically sent a breast screening appointment at the correct time interval since their previous screening date. Head of healthcare programmes, Dr Linda Diggle said: “We are very pleased to be able to show this new system to the Lieutenant Governor, and Lady McColl. In Jersey, breast screening is aimed at women aged between 50 and 69. Although women are still required to make the first contact with the service to register their wish to join the programme, once they are in the system, they will then be invited back for regular repeat screening, usually every two years.” This month, the Public Health department have launched an island-wide campaign aimed at women aged between 50 and 69, to raise awareness about breast screening, featuring banners, leaflets and posters across the Island. An eye-catching ‘Time To Act’ banner is at the Steam Clock to highlight the campaign. All women aged 50-69 who are not yet registered on the programme are advised to contact the breast screening service on 443790.

2011 Bedell Challengers to top million pound mark for Jersey Hospice Care 38 trekkers and cyclists are preparing to make their way through South Africa for a trip of a lifetime while raising money for Jersey Hospice Care. The event has been run every two years and it’s hoped fundraising and sponsorship monies raised by challengers this year will bring the total raised by the six adventures of this kind to over and above the £1 million mark. As part of the 2011 Bedell South Africa Challenge, cyclists will be peddling their way through incredible scenery on the famous

Garden Route, with their aim to reach the most southerly point in Africa. They will cycle on average 65km a day along white beaches and through forest, farmland and high mountains. The trekkers will be experiencing genuine wilderness in the Cederberg area comprising crisp clean air, stunning scenery and rock formations, crystal clear streams and pools. Walking approximately 14km per day, Table Mountain will be the final challenge tackled on their last day. Both groups will meet in Cape Town for a celebratory meal at the end of their adventures. Each challenger contributes £1,100 towards their trip costs and pledges to raise a minimum of £2,750 for Jersey Hospice Care. Around half of this year’s challengers have taken part in a previous Bedell Challenge with half experiencing it for the first time. Various fundraising events have been organised by the team including a Lexus Lottery; a charity ball which marked World Hospice Day; an Irish Night; a Gig for Hospice at the Watersplash; a 48 hour spinathon in M&S window in King Street; a curry night and a watersports equipment sale; bag packing and lots of car boot and cake sales. As the charity relies entirely on donations to fund its operating costs of more than £6,000 a day, the Challenges are vitally important as one of its biggest fundraisers. Jersey Hospice Care provides 24 hour specialist palliative care, free of charge, 365 days a year to islanders with cancer and motor neurone disease. Its services are offered within patients’ homes and at the charity’s In-Patient Unit and Day Hospice at Clarkson House, Mont Cochon. The charity also runs a Community Bereavement Service to support adults and children who are struggling to come to terms with bereavements of all kinds.

As well as encouraging people to have fun by showing off their moustaches, Mange Tout will also be raising money for Movember charities by donating £1 from the sale of a special Movember sandwich, which has been designed specifically to support the initiative and will be available from all four Mange Tout cafes. 10p from will also be donated every time a latte or cappuccino is sold during the month. “Movember is great fun and we want to give it our full support so we thought it would be a great idea to rebrand as Mange Tache for the month and raise money by designing a Movember sandwich as well as donating money from every latte and cappuccino sold,” said Andrew Hosegood of Mange Tout. “We want everybody to take part so we’ve designed the Mange Tache competition to include frothy latte and cappuccino moustaches in the hope that women will get involved too. Men of course, have to grow their own!” Every week, people should upload their moustache photos to the ‘Mange Tout Jersey’ Facebook page. The moustaches will be judged on size and novelty value.

JT’s Green Travel Day Fundraising supports The Jersey Hedgerow Campaign

Trekker Dominique Le Maistre said: “I am so excited and nervous at the same time. I’ve never taken part in anything like this before. I’ve only ever watched Ben Fogle and his extreme dreams on the television so this will be an immense challenge for me. My training’s gone really well and I’ve experienced all weathers to walk in so far so I’m prepared, whatever the weather in South Africa. I have my pedometer and the boots are broken in and ready to go, so bring it on!” This year’s Challenge is once again kindly sponsored by Bedell and the team departs from Jersey Airport on Saturday 5 November, returning on Tuesday 15 November.

“Mange Tache”- Women and men urged to upload their Mo this Movember Jersey men and women are both being asked to showcase their imaginative moustaches (women can enter photos of the temporary moustaches created by the froth that sticks to the top lip when drinking a latte or cappuccino) on Mange Tout’s Facebook page this November. The aim is to raise money and awareness of the initiative, and the person who enters the most original moustache, in the opinion of the judges, will win a prize of £25 of Mange Tout vouchers. The competition will run on a weekly basis with a prize available at the end of each week during November. Mange Tout is supporting the Movember initiative, which raises money for men’s health, namely prostate cancer and other cancers which affect men. The fresh food café is rebranding as ‘Mange Tache’ for the month and asking people to upload photos of their moustaches to their Facebook page, ‘Mange Tout Jersey’, on a weekly basis during November.

As part of its commitment to support green initiatives within the community JT has donated £500 to Jersey Trees for Life and pledged to support it in The Jersey Hedgerow Campaign to restore and protect Jersey’s hedgerows and farmland trees for the benefit of the Island’s biodiversity. The funds were raised last month when JT’s staff took part in the Green Travel Day where they organized a raffle and made a small donation for wearing green for the day. This initiative and support to Jersey Trees for Life is just one element of JT’s commitment to the local community, with staff joining together to plant, restore and protect hedgerows around the island. The five members of staff from JT were given the time off during the morning of Thursday 27th October 2011 to work under the guidance of Conrad Evans of Jersey Trees for Life. The hedgerows were planted in Grouville back in December 2010 and require constant upkeep of weeding and clearing the surrounding grasses that ensure the hedgerows flourish and continue to grow. Andy Holmes, JT’s People and Environmental Risk Manager, said: “We are committed to minimising the negative impact we have on

We are delighted to have been able to join together with Jersey Trees for Life to offer both financial and practical support to The Jersey Hedgerow Campaign, which carries out vital work to help preserve the Island’s environment.” Conrad Evans of Jersey Trees for Life said: “We are very grateful to JT for their fundraising efforts which are vital in helping us to fund The Jersey Hedgerow Campaign.

Off with the lycra, the suit wins in the end.” Mr Jackson organised the cycle ride as he recently lost both his father, Steve Jackson, and his secretary of many years, Wendy Tuckwood, to cancer within a few months of one another. He said the going has been tough but he has really enjoyed most of the ride so far: “I was exhausted but the adrenalin kept me going. The journey was possibly the 14 hardest yet mostly enjoyable days I can remember. I’m delighted that I have managed to raise over £3,500 so far. It was also great to know that my colleagues were supporting me, manning two exercise bikes in our St Helier office reception, raising further money for my charity to add to Hawksford’s generous donation.” concluded Mr Jackson. “We are all very proud of Peter,” said Peter Murley, chief executive, Hawksford. “He has achieved an amazing feat and has overcome many challenges, including a severe lack of suitable food! It is great to have him back in the office where the team presented him with a pizza – which he said he won’t eat, but may sit on as it looked quite squashy and more inviting than a bicycle saddle.” Islanders who wish to make a donation can do so at Mr Jackson’s Justgiving page - www.justgiving.com/peter-jackson9. Mr Jackson’s daily updates can be found at www.hawksford.com/ news/peter-jackson-cycles-to-zurich/.

Along the way, Mr Jackson sent entertaining daily updates to his colleagues, which soon started to highlight the potentially serious problem Mr Jackson was having in finding restaurants in which to eat. Because the fearless cyclist was covering around 100 miles per day, each evening he would arrive into his target village or town after all restaurants and supermarkets had closed – he completed his cycle almost exclusively on takeaway pizza, bread and jam (and on occasion whatever he could buy from vending machines)!

Tenth Pledge Is Launched – Jersey Electricity removes Wrap It Up: Saving Paper record number of faulty electric blankets in annual The National Trust for Jersey is delighted to announce the safety check with Fire and launch of its tenth pledge as part of the Green House Rescue Service Project. This year the Trust pledged to use more recycled paper and reduce paper usage in its office at The Elms. So far it has achieved savings of over 30% by doing the following: • • • • •

Using scrap paper as note pads and for re-printing. Setting the printer to print on both sides. Using a printer which scans and emails to reduce printing and mailing costs. All newspapers and out of date publications are sent to be recycled. All publications this year have been printed from recycled paper or from sustainable sources (FSC certified).

Charles Alluto, CEO of The National Trust for Jersey, commented: “At the beginning of the year we made a pledge to use recycled paper which unfortunately was 25% more expensive than our existing stock. Therefore we knew that we had to make similar reductions in usage if we were going to balance the books! I have to say that we were amazingly surprised how easy it was to meet our target once we started using scrap paper for printing emails and in-house documents. With very little effort you can easily reduce your costs as well as safeguard the environment….an easy win-win situation. With so many offices in the Island I am certain that if we all tried to save more paper we could make a real difference.” FACTS AND FIGURES: Every year 900 million trees are cut down to provide material for paper mills with the average office worker printing out 1,500 sheets of paper each month, most of which is discarded within two days and often printed again. As a result 120 billion pages are printed by offices in the UK alone producing 5.0 million tonnes of waste paper which is subsequently dumped in landfill sites. Switching to recycled paper can save 17 trees, 35,000 litres of water, 1,900 litres of oil, 4,000 kWs of energy and three cubic metres of landfill space per tonne. PAPER SAVING TIPS: • •

Go Electronic: Rather than printing scan documents and circulate by email Use Both Sides Set your printer to print both sides of the paper

Jersey Electricity tested a total of 188 electric blankets and removed a record 30 from service at the annual two-day safety test at Western Fire Station, St Brelade. In a joint initiative to reduce the risk of house fires caused by electrical fault, Jersey Fire and Rescue Service and JE invited islanders to take their electric blankets for a free safety check by qualified electrical engineers. Those found to be faulty or over 10 years old were retained and disposed of and the owners given a discount voucher to purchase a new one. Fire and Rescue Community Safety Officers were on hand, offering advice on fire safety in the home. Officer Phil Falle said: “We were pleased with the public response which was an increase on last year when we tested 185 blankets and removed 17 from service. And we are grateful to Jersey Electricity staff for their ongoing commitment to this safety campaign.” “It is also useful for us to have the opportunity to remind the public face to face about fire safety. The majority of fires we attend that are started by electrical faults are due to people overloading sockets. Too many appliances plugged into one socket can cause overheating. It is safer to use a strip adapter on a lead rather than a block adaptor. People should never plug an adaptor into another adaptor and the total current plugged into the adaptor should not exceed 13 amps.” “Electric blankets should be kept dry and stored flat or rolled. When the blanket is on the bed people should ensure that both the lead and the switch/heat control hang freely and the electric flex is not twisted, coiled, laid across the blanket or tucked under the mattress or covers.” “‘You should never use an under blanket over a person or an over blanket under a person. You should never use two or more electric blankets on top each other and you should never use a hot water bottle with an electric blanket.”

its culinary expertise. Both Bohemia and Ocean Restaurant at The Atlantic Hotel have retained their Michelin starred status for a number of years and as a whole Jersey has a higher density of AA Awarded restaurants than any other holiday destination across the British Isles.” In his capacity as Chairman of Luxury Jersey Hotels Patrick Burke went on to say “Naturally, on behalf of Luxury Jersey we are incredibly proud that two properties from the group have been identified by Condé Nast Johansens readers as the crème de la crème in these prestigious national awards.”

Harbours CEO Steps Down The Chief Executive and Harbour Master of Jersey Harbours, Captain Howard Le Cornu is stepping down from the role at the end of March 2012, choosing to pursue new business opportunities in the private sector. Captain Le Cornu’s decision comes at a time of integration between Jersey Harbours and Jersey Airport, which will now see the new Group CEO, Doug Bannister, assume the legal responsibilities of the Harbour Master and Airport Director when he is sworn in by the Royal Court in early November. This week it has been announced that both The Atlantic Hotel and Bohemia Restaurant at The Club Hotel & Spa have been nominated for highly prestigious Condé Nast Johansens Awards for Excellence. Winners will be announced at the 2012 Annual Awards Dinner, this year also marking Condé Nast Johansens 30th Anniversary, at The May Fair Hotel in London on Monday 7th November. The Atlantic Hotel has been shortlisted with three other properties in the category for ‘Most Excellent Hotel’ and Bohemia Restaurant is one of three establishments in the category for ‘Most Excellent Restaurant’. Nominations for the awards are taken from guest survey reports, Regional Inspectors reports and the new Condé Nast Johansens online voting system.

In the meantime, Howard Le Cornu will be working with the new Group CEO on delivering a number of new commercial ventures as well as continuing to represent the organisation on strategic naval and maritime affairs.

Commenting on the nomination Owner and Managing Director of The Atlantic Hotel Patrick Burke said, “We are delighted that The Atlantic Hotel has been shortlisted for this award, which comes just two years after winning the award for Most Excellent Waterside Hotel in 2010. It is particularly pleasing to receive this nomination during the celebrations for the 30th anniversary of Condé Nast Johansens given that The Atlantic Hotel is the only property on the island to have been recommended by the guide since its inception in 1972.” Bohemia Restaurant Owner Lawrence Huggler is also thrilled to have achieved the shortlist in these highly esteemed awards and comments “We are really pleased that the quality and customer care we pride ourselves upon has been recognised by Condé Nast Johansens readers. This announcement comes hot on the heels of the confirmation that Bohemia Restaurant has retained its Michelin star for the eighth year running, the news that Bohemia was awarded 4 Rosettes in the AA Restaurant Guide 2012 and just a month or so ago we achieved an impressive 26th place listing in ‘The Good Food Guide 2012’.” Continuing, he said “It is really exciting to see how Jersey continues to raise the bar, and is a key player within the UK and European hospitality industry.

With demand high, we’re still taking expressions of interest via our website and Facebook page.” Anyone interested in registering their interest in buying an iPhone 4S should visit the Sure store on King Street.

Peer Group review of Jersey’s tax information exchange welcomed The Chief Minister has welcomed the findings of the Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes review of Jersey. The Peer Group is responsible for monitoring and peer review of the implementation of the international standards of transparency and exchange of information for tax purposes. The review says Jersey’s domestic laws provide a satisfactory framework for the exchange of relevant information. The Island fully met the Group’s standard in six of the nine areas under review. Three areas related to legal implementation were assessed as being in place but with room for improvement. However, the assessors noted that the apparent gaps they identified have not prevented Jersey from engaging in effective information exchange. Nevertheless, changes are being made to ensure that Jersey is fully compliant. The assessors said “Overall, this review of Jersey identifies a legal and regulatory framework for the exchange of information which generally functions effectively to ensure that the required information will be available and accessible… Jersey’s practices to date have demonstrated a responsive and cooperative approach.” The Chief Minister, Senator Terry Le Sueur, said: “We welcome the findings of the Peer Group review and the recognition that Jersey is committed to complying with the international standard on exchange of tax information. We are currently working on ways to implement their recommendations.” Referring to the 36 requests for exchange of information that had been received by the time the assessment was carried out, the assessors say “while Jersey’s infrastructure and practical experience in exchange of information is relatively new it has however been effective and expeditious to date”. Since that time, the number of requests for information received has increased to 84 and the overseas authorities involved have shown considerable satisfaction at the effective way in which the Jersey authorities have responded to these requests. In particular, the speed with which Jersey responds to requests is in marked contrast to the time taken by many other countries.

Jersey is co-operative in exchanging information Jersey Finance has welcomed the findings of the Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes which assessed how well Jersey had responded to the international standards on tax information exchange. Jersey was described by the Peer Review Group as having ‘practices which to date have demonstrated a responsive and co-operative approach.’ It further indicated that the speed with which Jersey responded to requests was in marked contrast to the time taken by many other countries. To date Jersey has responded to 84 requests for exchanging information – 36 at the time of the review – and the Forum described Jersey’s response as being ‘effective and expeditious to date.’ Geoff Cook, chief executive, Jersey Finance Limited, commented: “So often we hear detractors make misleading claims that Jersey is secretive and unco-operative and yet the truth based on hard evidence is very different. An independent, specially formed global body set up by the OECD countries, which is able to delve closely into our procedures and ask probing questions of our officials, shows clearly that Jersey is responsive and co-operative.” Jersey met the Group’s standards in six of the nine areas under review and the Government has announced that changes are being made to ensure the Island is fully compliant. However the assessors also noted that where there are gaps in the process, it has not prevented Jersey from engaging in effective information exchange. All members of the Global Forum are being reviewed in this way and Jersey was one of only two non OECD jurisdictions to volunteer for the assessment process.

Bohemia Restaurant is named in Sunday Times Top 100 Food List A new entry for 2011, Jersey’s Michelin-starred Bohemia Restaurant was yesterday named as the only Channel Island Restaurant to make the top 100 in the Sunday Times Food List. The accolade is the latest in a tremendously successful year for Bohemia Restaurant located at St Helier’s Club Hotel & Spa.

Headed up by Chef Shaun Rankin Bohemia was placed 80th in the Food List with an average score of 9.03 out of ten. Customers hailed Rankin’s food as ‘brilliant’ matched by ‘very professional’ service. The two-Michelin-starred restaurant The Ledbury, in London topped the Food List, Raymond Blanc’s Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons in Oxfordshire, came second while last year’s winner, Gidleigh Park, was third. Other findings from the Sunday Times Food List, include that half of the top 100 restaurants are outside London (up from 40% last year); while Asian restaurants have fallen by half; and Bohemia is one of 31 new entries.

States of Jersey Launch The Global Draw’s New Electronic Instant Ticket System

Daily monitoring and reporting ensures that sales of the lottery tickets are accounted for more effectively with increased security and integrity

De Putron Challenge will see Jersey take on Guernsey rivals

The Global Draw, a wholly owned subsidiary of Scientific Games Corporation (Nasdaq: SGMS), is pleased to announce the introduction of its new electronic instant ticket (EIT) system throughout the states of Jersey in the Channel Islands. The Channel Islands Lottery is now officially the first government lottery in Europe to sell tickets from EIT terminals, with the first electronic tickets going on sale today. Electronic instant tickets will be available in participating supermarket and pub chains, the airport and seaport, hotels and retailers throughout Jersey. As well as providing the people of Jersey with a more convenient and engaging experience, the EIT terminals will provide more opportunities to participate in the lottery and the potential to increase the amount of funds generated for Jersey Charities. Jersey’s Minister for Economic Development, Senator Alan Maclean, was on-hand at the launch and was the first person to use one of the new lottery ticket dispensers, located at Don Street, St Helier Co-Operative Society Limited (image attached). Speaking about the launch, Senator Alan Maclean commented, “We’re thrilled to officially launch electronic instant tickets, which will not only make playing the lottery more accessible and fun but also has the potential to boost contributions to Jersey charities that so desperately need the extra support.” Paul Burnell, Director of EIT/Lottery at The Global Draw commented, “With the support of the Department for Economic Development, the Gambling Commission and local Jersey businesses, we are delighted to be able to offer Jersey a new, convenient way to play the lottery.” “We’ve been working hard to ensure that every aspect of our electronic instant ticket roll-out goes as quickly and smoothly as possible. We have been and will continue to be extremely controlled and strategic with the allocation and deployment of EIT dispensers into the marketplace.” Jersey is currently the only Channel Island with enabling legislation to allow the sale of electronic instant tickets. The new EIT terminals provide a straight-forward way to play the lottery. Players simply insert their money into the terminal, select the ticket of their choice from a number of lottery ticket images, “scratch” the ticket on the screen and then collect a receipt to claim their prize. Players are still able to buy tickets over the counter as well. Players wishing to participate in the Christmas Lottery will now have the ability to buy paper tickets over the counter as well as purchase tickets through the EIT terminals. The EIT terminals offer greater choice and flexibility for the players to purchase

Jersey’s sixth formers and Highland college students will compete next month in the second De Putron Challenge to determine who will then take on their winning counterpart in Guernsey. Teams from Highlands College, Beaulieu Convent School, Hautlieu School, Jersey College for Girls, Victoria College and, last year’s winners, De La Salle College have all signed up to take part in the event. Launched in Jersey last year, the De Putron Challenge is a fun, friendly and educational quiz, run in a format similar to that of University Challenge and this year the successful team will win the chance to represent the island in a Guernsey verses Jersey final. With two heats, the rounds will focus on general knowledge, local history and culture, the team’s chosen specialist subject as well as other areas of expertise such as music, film, the Earth and environment, culture, media and sport. Hayley de Putron, global head of investor relations at De Putron Fund Management is once again looking forward to the De Putron Challenge: “With such a high level of knowledge and enthusiasm displayed by the students last year we felt the time was right to raise the bar and give Guernsey and Jersey students the opportunity to win the overall Channel Island De Putron Challenge title.” The winning team will also receive £1,000 for their school or college. Quiz master Rob Moore of Channel Television said he was looking forward to hosting the Jersey events this year. “With this year’s twist of bringing the Guernsey team to Jersey for the inter-island final, it’s all to play for. It will be great to be in Jersey for what I imagine will be a tough competition and I look forward to putting the teams through their paces,” said Mr Moore.

Fairbairn Private Bank Appoints New Uk Head Of Private Banking Robert Currie has joined Fairbairn Private Bank as the new UK head of private banking, based at the bank’s London office. Robert has joined from Coutts, having recently returned from a 12-month secondment as head of sales and business development in the USA for Citizens Private Bank and Trust, one of RBS’s operating subsidiaries. Prior to his USA assignment Robert was managing partner of Coutts & Co’s Executive client group in the City of London. Commenting on the appointment, Greg Horton, managing director of Fairbairn Private Bank, said: “I am delighted to welcome Robert to our senior management team. It is a very exciting time for the bank as we continue to develop our UK presence and raise the profile of our asset management offering in the UK. “The UK is a very important market for Fairbairn Private Bank, and one where we see tremendous growth potential. This senior appointment demonstrates our commitment to continuing expansion within the UK. It also underscores our ability to attract top talent in our chosen markets. I am confident that Robert will make a significant contribution to the development of Fairbairn Private Bank’s business in the region. “In welcoming Robert, I would also like to express my appreciation to Andrew Bates for the role he has played on secondment in setting up our London operation in readiness for this appointment. Andrew will shortly return to oversee our new operations in the UAE with effect from April 2012, and I wish both Andrew and Robert every success in their new roles.” Robert Currie added: “I’m very pleased to have joined the Fairbairn Private Bank team. It is a privilege to have the opportunity to build upon the success already achieved and represent an award-winning bank. I look forward to playing my part in its continued growth and development.” Fairbairn Private Bank was this year voted Best International Wealth Provider for the third year running in the Professional Adviser International Fund and Product Awards. The bank was also a finalist in the 2011 Private Asset Managers (PAM) awards in the category ‘Best Overall Wealth Solutions Provider’. This year, the PAM Awards judging panel nominated 27 firms to contest the award categories. As a finalist, the bank is regarded as one of the top performers in its field.

Twenty three people from Jersey and Guernsey were successfully trained in the safe use of professional pesticides by the Department of the Environment. The training complies with the Island’s laws governing the use of pesticides which are designed to protect the natural environment. Misuse of professional pesticides can have a detrimental impact on the local flora and fauna and can pollute the environment. The training was organised by the Department of the Environment, who have responsibility for regulating the use of pesticides under the Pesticide ( Jersey) Law 1991. Alan Derrien from Environmental Protection said that the training had been a great success. “The Department always has to balance its work to protect the environment and the need for commercial organisations to use pesticides in a controlled way,” he said. “The training that we offer certifies successful candidates in the safe use of pesticides and allows us to reinforce the need to protect our Island’s natural environment. Educating users on how to safely use these products and the negative impact they can have on the environment if misused is key to our work” The Minister for Planning and Environment, Deputy Rob Duhamel said, “This is part of the Department’s commitment to the EcoActive Biodiversity campaign that shows that we are committed to training operatives in the correct use of pesticides in order to safeguard the island’s ecosystem and working countryside.” Those attending the course ranged from farmers and growers to commercial gardeners. The training included maintenance, equipment requirements and disposal of contaminated pesticide waste. All those who attended the course were assessed as competent. The City and Guilds training course includes classroom and on-site land training. It takes place at least annually and is selffunding, with the candidates funding all the training costs.

Money & Investments Roundup Compiled by Marcus Quinn, news@jerseyweekly.com

James McKeigue, Money Week Across the river from the City

Europe has not been saved The stock market is booming. The FTSE 100 is up 12% this month, while American and European indexes have also posted massive gains. The main reason for the optimism is Europe. All month, hopes have been building that Europe’s leaders would ‘solve’ the eurozone crisis. On Thursday they announced their plan and the markets loved it. Then America chimed in with stronger-than expected GDP figures. So is everything going to be ok? Not at all, says John Stepek. The real question is: “how long will this particular sticking plaster last before the next panic?” At first glance, the crisis summit seems to have achieved its three main aims. It has persuaded private-sector holders of Greek debt to take a 50% ‘haircut’. It is forcing Europe’s banks to raise another €106billion of capital. And it is going to increase the firepower of the bailout fund – the European Financial Stability Fund (EFSF) – to €1 trillion, from €440 billion. “The trouble is, we knew most of this before the big summit. And the details have yet to be hammered out. In other words, this is a statement of intent, not a done deal”, says John. But the biggest sticking point is that the European Central Bank (ECB) isn’t involved in any of this. “The reason that Britain, the US and arguably Japan haven’t gone bust yet is because they have central banks that are able to print money to buy their own bonds.” That’s allowed them to at least delay the day of reckoning. But “Europe is not at that point yet”, John continues. “And until Germany gives the ECB the go-ahead to print Europe’s way out, we’re going to be returning to these summits over and over again. Because fundamentally, there still isn’t enough money to go round to deal with all these debts.”

It’s hard to know if Germany will ever accept money-printing by the ECB. But with plenty more crisis summits and market disappointments to come, you should stay invested in defensive stocks.

Healthcare at a discount Defensives are a long time MoneyWeek favourite, but why are we so keen? One reason is that “they don’t need economic growth to make their profits”, says David Stevenson. Another benefit is that “several defensives offer inflation-matching yields”. One of David’s favourite defensive sectors is healthcare. “Regardless of how weak the global economy is, people around the world will need to spend money on healthcare… That’s why global ‘big pharma’ firms have been able to generate ever-increasing streams of profits and cash flows”, says David. Yet despite its track record of consistently making money, the sector has fallen out of favour with investors. The main reason has been the so-called ‘patent cliff ’. “Many former blockbuster drugs either have lost, or will soon lose, their patent protection. That means these medicines can then be copied by ‘generic’ rivals and sold on the cheap. In turn, there’ll be less profit to be made from these products.” Indeed, analysts reckon that between 2011 and 2016, $255bn-worth of annual sales of the world’s top-selling drugs will go off patent. To give that some context, this year the global industry will turnover around $880billion. Scary stuff, but David thinks it’s actually an opportunity for investors. “The patent cliff might be steep. But it’s also an extremely obvious problem – you can see it coming from miles away. As a result, by now it has been fully ‘discounted’, ie it’s well and truly baked into the share prices of major drug makers.” While investors have shunned big pharma’, it has carried on making money. Which “means the sector now contains both cheap stocks and some well-above-average dividend yields”.

How much further will house prices fall? Back in the UK, there are fears that Britain’s economy is following the grim example set by Japan, where equities and property fell from their 1989 peak and never really recovered. We’re not going down quite the same path, blogs Merryn Somerset Webb, but UK house prices still have a lot more to fall. So far, adjusting for inflation, UK house prices have dropped by about 25-30%. “That’s a lot. But it still isn’t enough. On numbers from Capital Economics, prices still need to fall by another 20% or so to “restore the historical link between prices and average earnings.”” The drop may be a slow process, with inflation steadily bringing down real prices. Or it could be more dramatic. “With household income unpleasantly squeezed by high inflation and very low wage rises (combined to create a fall in real wages) and as unemployment edges up”, we could see a sharp fall in house prices. “That’s particularly given the case now that there are hints that borrowers won’t be living with ultra-low mortgage rates forever, regardless of what happens to the base rate.” As usual, houses prove a controversial topic among Money Week readers. Critic, Al Rick fears for the worst. Noting that while “the UK’s woes may be 20 years behind those of Japan… they are not far behind those of other countries, such as Ireland and the US, which have sustained very considerable house price downgrades”. Yet, not everyone is so bearish on the housing market. Alex thinks that house prices are fairly valued and don’t have further to fall. “The fact is that at £160k the average house is not actually very expensive by today’s standards because the average couple earns around £50k combined.”

Moreover, there are signs that big pharma’s move to develop new product lines and exploit growth in emerging markets is paying off. To find out David’s top tip in the sector read the full article at moneyweek. com: The best British big pharma stock to buy now.

After delivering his budget proposal with a positive outlook - and apparently some justification of the tough calls made the year before - Senator Philip Ozouf is now calling for £40m in government funds be used to help Jersey pull through the lingering recession.

Since his re-election as Senator in 2008 - the same year he became Minister for Treasury and Resources and Deputy Chief Minister - Philip Ozouf has been working hard to improve financial management across the States of Jersey. Previously, under Senator Ozouf’s tenure as Economic Development Minister - following the 2005 introduction of a Ministerial Government to Jersey - the Island enjoyed significant economic growth and low inflation. Given this experience and insight into the fiscal and monetary policies that apply perhaps uniquely to our Island, his calls to utilise £40m from the Fiscal Stimulus Fund used to help businesses in Jersey during the downturn - as well as provide a training scheme that aims to reduce the creeping unemployment figures - his view may be worth heeding.

“HE INTENDS TO ENSURE PEOPLE ARE HELPED BACK TO WORK. THE ‘ADVANCE TO WORK’, ‘ADVANCE PLUS’ AND OTHER WORKPLACE INITIATIVES ALREADY UP AND RUNNING IN JERSEY COULD BE EXPANDED AND EXTENDED WITH ADDED FUNDING FROM THE £40M ALLOCATED FISCAL STIMULUS MONEY”

“The annual rate of RPI from September 2010 to September 2011 – was 5.4%. These are unprecedented, challenging times and further action by government will be needed to limit the impact on our economy and our society - and act, we will.” Here is how the Senator proposes to ‘act’ using the Fiscal Stimulus Fund as the scaffold; He intends to ensure people are helped back to work. The ‘Advance to Work’, ‘Advance Plus’ and other workplace initiatives already up and running in Jersey could be expanded and extended with added funding from the £40m allocated fiscal stimulus money.

Senator Ozouf also spoke of projects such as the renovation of Jersey’s Opera House. Earlier in the year he allocated fiscal stimulus funding to the creation of a new studio space for performance and rehearsal along with a corporate entertainment space, that makes use of an area of the building that has gone unused and become derelict over recent years. This comes as great encouragement to the chairman of the Opera House Board, Pierre Horsfall, who noted that the project fit all the criteria for fiscal stimulus funding. He described the Opera House as a building both owned and enjoyed by the people of Jersey. Senator Ozouf saw the diversification of use for this unique building as a long term reward for the expenditure. He said that the number of groups using the facility will increase - along with audiences - giving the Opera House a new lease of life and encouraging visitors and locals alike. In the short term, the added jobs in the architectural and construction industries - themselves active in the employment of apprentices and improvers - will be a welcome bonus for the local economy. Similarly, work on the new Police headquarters have been allocated more than £20m for a ‘fit for purpose’ development that will allow the Jersey Police to be more streamlined and efficient - thus providing a better service to Islanders. He hoped to see it up and running in June 2012 - work could start now, he said.

Housing Projects - both new build and refurbishments - could be brought forward to support and boost the valuable construction industry. Keeping their order books going - he said - at an uncertain time, would be beneficial to the Island.

Also under the umbrella of ICT are the non real-time communications that increasingly make up a large part of everyday life - text messaging, voicemail and email. These technologies are increasingly becoming integrated. The ‘unified communications’ title refers to the fact that a message sent via one medium - such as text message - can be received via email, voicemail, instant message or any of the other ‘unified communications’. The final measure - though not as Senator Ozouf had laid it out - but here at Jersey Weekly we see it as a big development - was his idea to tackle infrastructure investment - particularly broadband infrastructure; The recent concerns for the future of Jersey’s online retail and fulfillment industry - under threat from the UK Governments proposal to ‘close the loophole’ of Low Value Consignment Relief (LCVR) - have placed stress about employment security and financial stability on many residents. This stress is not restricted to those employed at companies such as Play.com, FeelUnique or similar - but also peripheral businesses - Jersey Post and even cafés and shops located nearby to distribution hubs, who cater to those employed there.

Senator Ozouf’s announcement to the BBC... “I am in discussion, there is no firm announcements yet, but a potentially quite large project which would invest in the Island’s IT infrastructure which could position Jersey to create a new sector of the economy in terms of ICT” ...could be just in time.

Senator Ozouf proposes help be given to these companies, that allow them to remain competitive - and thus viable - should the UK close the loophole on LCVR altogether (current legislation means that the threshold for VAT paid on consignments from the Channel Islands moves down to £15 before tax - as opposed to the £18 in place now). One of the answers to keeping Jersey as a dynamic centre for business and thus employment, would be to encourage and support high technology industries with an even smaller ‘footprint’ than the online retailers; As this is a nine by five mile island - with the challenges of shipping goods for fulfillment industries in and out via sea or air in times of increasing transport costs - any business capable of generating appreciable revenue and employment, with a minimal impact on space, warehousing and fuel/transport budget is obviously valuable.

These technologies are making the World increasingly more accessible - ‘smaller’ - in that businesses on opposite sides of the world can find beneficial partnerships or share services. Jersey has had a strong presence from the finance industry - and perhaps more than any other sector, Jersey’s finance industry will increasingly require that the Islands communications network be at least as good as those of areas of development and economic growth worldwide who may become valuable allies in the future. South Korea, for example, is one of the Next Eleven (N-11) countries - identified by Goldman Sachs Investment Bank as potentially becoming the World’s largest economies in the 21st century. The Government in South Korea has heavily invested in high speed internet connectivity - the ‘Korean Information Infrastructure Plan’ was brought into effect in 2005 and now in 2011 the country had the fastest internet connection in the World at 33.5 Mb/s. Speeds of up to 1 Gb/s for domestic connections are the aim for 2012.

Thus Senator Ozouf proposes investment in ICT - Information and Communication Technologies. This encompasses unified communications - the integration of real time communication services such as video conferencing, instant messaging, data sharing, telephony, speech recognition and call control.

This wide access to high speed broadband connection has led to online gaming becoming a large part of Korean culture in recent years. Online gaming is perhaps one of the ultimate low footprint, high technology and high income businesses that Senator Ozouf would be wise to encourage, should Jersey become the centre of ICT excellence that he proposes. Online gaming and gambling is one of the fastest growing industries globally - the estimated annual growth is around 40%. The amount gambled on poker sites alone exceeded US $60billion in 2005, and the majority of industry experts believe that the global commission generated by site operators will reach US $4billion within the next 2-3 years.

Jersey is currently 30 times more expensive for telecoms services than Guernsey - a statistic that could possibly see businesses who rely heavily on the aforementioned unified communications choosing our sister Isle as a base of operations. If Jersey is to attract e-gaming and all the associated benefits, it needs to be literally brought up to speed, and future proofed.

“TECHNOLOGIES ARE MAKING THE WORLD INCREASINGLY MORE ACCESSIBLE - ‘SMALLER’ - IN THAT BUSINESSES ON OPPOSITE SIDES OF THE WORLD CAN FIND BENEFICIAL PARTNERSHIPS OR SHARE SERVICES”

Our sister Island Guernsey has embraced ‘e-gaming’ - licensed through Alderney. The increased bandwidth that Guernsey buys to accommodate the e-gaming industry means that private and business customers get cheaper rates and higher quality connections as a result. Guernsey has fourteen ‘data centres’ (Jersey has only six by comparison) - and a dedicated ‘data technology park’ that accommodates Cloud Computing and IP Technology, coupled with E-gaming E-commerce and E-Retailing. A Guernsey domiciled investment company listed on the Channel Islands Stock Exchange (CISX) administered a fund in 2008 to build the UK’s largest data centre - perhaps demonstrating that shrewd businesses in Guernsey saw the future in ICT before the Governments on either Island.

St Helier Constable’s proposal to halt Waterfront Development Words // Rick Jones • Feature Design // Jon Moore

Constable of St Helier, Simon Crowcroft has recently - and publicly - called for the proposed development of ‘The Esplanade Quarter’ - a central Jersey financial district - on the current Esplanade car-park to be halted, pending further discussion by the newly elected States Members. He also wishes to see the suggested development of the former ‘La Folie’ pub and disused warehouses at Les Gallots halted, stating there ‘is no urgency’ to redevelop these areas. Constable Crowcroft claims; “(I) haven’t yet spoken to anyone who disagrees with me”. However, Jersey Weekly recently spoke to someone who clearly does disagree; MD of the States of Jersey Development Company, Mr Stephen Izatt. The decision to turn the current open air car-park on the Esplanade into 620,000 sq ft of office space, 400 residential units, 100 hotel beds and around 50,000 sq ft of support retail and refreshment areas was approved by the States of Jersey four years ago. It’s already been much debated as part of the Island plan. A common misconception is that tax payers money is to pay for the development, which is not the case. Although the States of Jersey Development Company (SOJDC) - formerly the Waterfront Enterprise Board (WEB) - were given the land, and much debate has ensued about it’s value, it’s all funded by private sector money. ‘Not a penny piece’, says Mr Izatt ‘of States money is to go into it’. Constable Simon Crowcroft sits on the ‘Regeneration Steering Group’ - a States body that was set up to debate such matters - but during the first discussion by the group on the Esplanade Quarter, he merely stated that he ‘had reservations’ on the matter. Similarly, on the second meeting, he simply asked that it be recorded that he had reservations - he didn’t delineate what they were. Mr Izatt stated that this would have been the ideal time for Constable Crowcroft to air his views. Although the car-park is much needed and usually full, public spaces wouldn’t be lost as a result of the development. The car-park currently holds around 520 vehicles at capacity - the

new development would see around the same amount catered for in the public parking area. This is only half the story though - the provision of a further 900 spaces for workers in the new offices and supporting retail premises will take pressure off commuters - the current 520 spaces are shared between workers in the finance industry and general users of the town centre. Constable Crowcroft is aware that there is no threat to parking, he says, but his opinion is that the additional office space should be closer to the ‘old town’ district where the large percent of retail businesses in St Helier currently operate. “Offices should be kept in the heart of town closer to shops and restaurants, it is a very attractive car park with its plants and trees and it should stay the way it is – there is no urgency.” Mr Izatt, however - speaking for the SOJDC - was quick to point out that the development is a mere three minutes away from the town centre to even the slowest walker. Additionally, the SOJDC actually constructed the current transportation centre - the Bus station on Liberty Wharf - and chose the area for it’s proximity to the town centre. Mr Izatt points out ‘It’s actually around one and a half minutes, as you get off the bus, before you reach the development site’, ‘also, if you look at the old town - whatever that may be, Broad St or others - you still have to walk up >>>

Conway St. Arguably it (the Esplanade Quarter) is equidistant or even a bit closer to King St.’ Mr Izatt points out that the finance industry is massively important to the Islands economy, but the priority is not only keeping the industry here, but seeing it grow. ‘What they are looking for,’ Mr Izatt asserts, ‘is modern, highly efficient space’. ‘There hasn’t been - over the last few years - a lot of growth, so they need to reduce their operating costs. What we’re offering at Esplanade Quarter, is purpose built space for the finance industry, with light on all four sides and low running costs - they are looking at whole life costs - we are trying to achieve a BREEAM (the design and assessment method for sustainable buildings) rating of excellent.’ Mr Izatt explains that the people making the decisions on where there branches are based aren’t in Jersey. They look at these ‘whole life costs’ as well as broadband infrastructure and the ‘cluster’ of companies that are already in the area when choosing the most efficient location for their premises; Mr Izatt; ‘We were talking to a major Swiss Bank the other day, and they basically told us; we’re going to be where the others want to be.’ ‘If you’re building a major finance centre, that’s where we’re going to be.’ ‘We also have a fantastic Broadband service at Castle Quay here, that’s the first one that JT put in - the Esplanade Quarter is literally sitting on a data centre already’.

The danger of the Constables proposal says Mr Izatt, is that halting the approval whilst the new States Members debate the Esplanade Quarter will stop the SOJDC from procuring pre-lets. ‘If we’re not able to enter into these negotiations and effect these prelets, it puts us at a disadvantage to other developments. It’s frankly anti-competitive.’ ‘We don’t mind competing on all fours with everyone, but the Constable seems to forget that if he’s trying to promote the private sector, just the first phase of the four buildings here would produce over £40m for the States. This is money that can go to schools and hospitals etc.’ ‘Timing is relevant, because if we were allowed to acquire a pre-let, construction could begin - subject to final planning approval - by this time next year. This could be £85m worth of construction. If you take the usual multiplier effect in Jersey - 2.8 times - that’s one hell of a bonus to the Jersey economy, and particularly to the construction industry which is very distressed at the moment.’ On the matter of La Folies and Les Gallot, Mr. Izatt spoke of the misconceptions that currently plague discussion. With regards to the former pub on the old harbour, he was quick to mention that firstly, there was no intention to ‘tear it down’. The building has stood empty for nearly a decade, and the proposal is to give it a new lease of life. ‘What we’re actually hoping to do with the building, is actually give it a life in perpetuity - we want La Folies and the other

little cottages to be homes.’ Not, however, more unobtainable to the average Jersey family luxury style homes these would be mid-range houses, and would need to be by virtue of their location. The area is a highly industrial harbour - the main road that passes outside serves the freight, fuel storage and utility providing industries - and the view from the front is the working freight port of the ‘New North Quay’. ‘Similarly, the other site, at Les Gallots where there are currently warehouses - we’re looking at houses there of 800 to 1400 square feet - they’re not exactly what you’d put in the large, luxury market.’ “When it comes to La Folies, obviously, we’ve been in discussions with the environment department. In fact we can’t do anything, because Jersey Development Company is told what to do by the Regeneration Steering Group (RSG) - that is it’s master. We require the Environment Department to set up a masterplan or a development brief - they therefore suggest what they want to see done in the area through the Minister - that then goes to the RSG. Assuming the RSG then accept the masterplan, they then tell us what to do.’ ‘So it isn’t as if a big bad Jersey Development Company has come up with this idea. All we’re doing is reacting - and we haven’t yet got an agreed development brief. If anything is premature, it’s the Constables criticism.’ ‘The old, listed buildings have been empty for a long time. The warehouses, I believe harbours emptied a year or two ago, with the intent that I believe they’d always had, to see it redeveloped. It just happens that now the SOJDC has been formed, we’re the natural delivery vehicle for it.’ ‘We have the staff and infrastructure in place already - we should see economies of scale from our other developments - and good management habits.’ ‘Whilst we are owned by the States, we’re still charged with actually acting in the interest of the best socio-economic benefits of the Island. That doesn’t necessarily mean maximising profit.’ Mr Izatt says he is passionately committed to improving the waterfront area. It’s apparent, sitting across the table in the boardroom of the SOJDC offices at Harbour Reach, that he believes that he has the opportunity to make improvements in the Waterfront Area. ‘We haven’t really - any of us, politicians

or WEB members - produced the most attractive waterfront. What we need to do is actually create a real heritage for the future. I feel the best place to do that is in the old harbours. As well as being part of the very fabric of the first successful industries in the Island, it’s the first thing many visitors see of Jersey on arrival.’ ‘It always distresses me that when I go

into St Peter Port I think wow. It’s a really attractive harbour - very much like one of the Cornish fishing villages - when you come into here, it’s not a homogenous area. For whatever reason, we’ve put many of our less attractive utilities on La Collete. We still have the ability to try and improve that harbour area, and I genuinely believe that a sympathetic redevelopment of La Folies would go some way towards that.’ ‘We want to create a fishing village cottage concept. If you look at Commercial Buildings, there are actually some attractive properties there. My understanding is that La Folies was the first part of the development of St Helier’s harbour. It’s not gentrification of the area, it’s a working marine traders area, and anyone who wants to live there has very much got to accept - and I hope that would be the attraction - you’re living in a working port.’ ‘I genuinely don’t understand what the problem is, and if you could get those buildings protected into the future it would be advantageous from a heritage standpoint. I’d be very sorry if nothing happened - it would be classic Jersey to not do anything, for all the wrong reasons.’ ‘I still don’t understand the Constable’s issues, I’ve never been able to figure it out, and I still can’t.’ So in answer to Constable Simon Crowcroft’s assertion that St Helier may not

need these new buildings, Mr Izatt points out that if we intend to keep and expand the finance industry in the Island, we need to give them premises that are up to the standard that they come to expect anywhere else they choose to do business. If these banks move out of their old premises and into the new, purpose built developments - and he sees Le Masurier’s J1 development as good competition - their old premises leave great scope for redevelopment into housing. It is a long held view that more people living in St Helier is a good thing. Less building in the countryside Jersey still has left, and the natural policing that comes from having people around (he describes the diminished vandalism in the Waterfront car-park since Castle Quay opened) are just two of the factors Mr Izatt points out. ‘That’s exactly what is going to happen with the Esplanade Quarter - or as I’d like to see it re-branded The Jersey International Finance Centre’.

Just Jersey

According to Mark Emms, the man who’s vision led him to found the company; ‘There is quite simply

nothing like seeing a quality artist in a small setting.’

The first event that demonstrated his concept was the successful visit to the Island by none other than Bryan Ferry of Roxy Music fame, on 10th of September this year. He and band performed hits such as ‘I put a spell on you’ and the instantly recognisable ‘Let’s stick together’ to a packed dance-floor at Hotel de France. This was their first visit to Jersey as performers, and Mr Ferry was heard to say to the appreciative crowd; ‘You’ve been a great crowd - I must come back to Jersey!’ This is coming from a man who has been recognised by the Queen for his contribution to music and the arts - he is, in fact, Bryan Ferry CBE no less - he can and does play to audiences all over the world. The ethos of Just Jersey - the choice of an intimate venue and great sound - is probably responsible for Mr Ferry’s enthusiastic thank you. Often when an artist reaches a certain level, the experience becomes more remote for fans and artist alike. The ability to see the joy in the audience members faces and reciprocally share the magic of the moment is all too often lost to top tier performers. Gigs like these can re-affirm the love of music in anyone. The event was a success and solidified the resolve of Just Jersey to carry on with the format, establishing a better and better reputation for it - thus attracting great acts and being able to provide a real treat for Jersey music fans. The next of these treats comes with the announcement of a performance by jazz/pop virtuoso Jamie Cullum. Jamie exploded onto the music scene by crossing over from the jazz to contemporary pop scenes - all the while maintaining the integrity of the jazz style that gave him his unique sound. His first album ‘Twentysomething’ went platinum in 2003 - at a time when illegal downloading was, we were being told, putting an end to traditional record (CD) sales. Various awards followed - including a prestigious ‘Artist of the Year’ from the BBC Jazz Awards - swiftly followed by a BRIT that confirmed the man had indeed crossed over genres and kept all his fans in each - possibly bringing new ones into either. He got a Grammy and a Golden Globe too… not too shabby for

‘Just Jersey’ is an exciting new promotions company that caters for - you guessed it; just Jersey. The main mission of the company is to bring artists of the very highest calibre - and we mean world class - to the Island. We can’t give too much away at this point, but we can tell you to ‘watch this space’ - and why you should; someone who began in the niche world of Jazz bars. Just Jersey’s Mark Emms said; ‘Jamie Cullum is a phe-

nomenal artists and I implore anybody who has not yet seen Jamie live to book a ticket. Jamie is coming over with his ten piece band and is sure to put on an amazing show for Jersey.’ ‘As with all Just Jersey events, there is a champagne reception and three-course meal with wine prior to the main act. Just Jersey events also give us the opportunity to raise money for local charities by running a live auction on the night.’

Just Jersey has a Trust incorporated that raises money for charities including Autism Jersey, Jersey Family Nursing and Home Care, Special Care Baby Unit, Mencap Jersey, The Variety Club of Jersey, Headway, The Anthony Lewis Trust, The Shelter Trust for the Homeless, Jersey Asthma and Clic-Sargent. ‘Just Jersey’ by nature and by name - the idea is to support those in need locally, as well as provide event organisation that is literally second to none. Some very - and we mean very, very big names are in the pipeline to perform up close and personal gigs here in Jersey. In fact - although we can’t give too much away - at least one of these performers scheduled for an Island visit is far more used to playing stadiums. Sold-out stadiums at that. We’re talking multi-million selling and household name here - not tribute acts or ‘stars of yesteryear’ - you will be amazed, trust us. The venue at Hotel de France has state of the art lighting and sound, and is conveniently located in a Hotel, so you could make a weekend of it - crowned by an evening meal with performance the likes of which you never expected to see. Guilt free too - knowing that the company arranging the event is supporting highly deserving local charities. We think Jersey has needed something like this for a long time - it will place us ‘on the map’ with promoters of huge names in music, and give Islanders a very special memory they can keep forever.

The Guernsey based Channel Island Stock Exchange (CISX) aims to be the premier offshore stock exchange in the European time zone and the exchange of choice for the listing of investment funds, debt instruments and the shares of companies. At the 2011 CISX Business Summit, held on September 29th at the current Lord Mayor of London’s residence, Mansion House - former Lord Mayor Alderman Sir John Stuttard gave the keynote speech - and called on the boards of companies to be more conscientious in their risk management.

City has to tackle risk management at it’s root, says former Lord Mayor Sir John spent thirty years of his career as a partner with PricewaterhouseCoopers, and is currently Deputy Chairman of the companies Advisory Board. His extensive experience includes auditing, acquisitions, stock exchange listings and privatisations for UK, US and Scandinavian companies. At other times in his career, Sir John served in the UK Cabinet Office for two years and spent five years in China as PwC Executive Chairman. This wealth of experience and knowledge no doubt made his words to delegates on the links between London and the Channel Islands a much anticipated section of the Summit.

However, a large part of Sir John’s address to the Summit was a call to action - in respect to risk management - and also in diligently nurturing partnerships with growing World economies. South and Central ‘Latin’ American Countries - and Eastern Europe, he said, were emergent, and should not be overlooked. He also called into focus - concerning building partnerships - to six of the ten fastest growing global economies - all based in Africa. It is predicted that by 2020, five African cities would have household spending to rival Mumbai - the economic hub of India, and rated as an ‘Alpha World City’, deemed to be an important node in the global economic system. Sir John supported the recommendations contained in the Vickers Commission on how to protect the Banking Industry, but added that the problems in London had to be tackled ‘at the root’. Quoting from the survey undertaken by the Chartered Institute of Auditors, he stated that the 32% of non executives who scrutinized risk management was lacking.

Tone of the themes at the Summit was fundamental values - this met with Sir John’s approval - and he went on to highlight the current Lord Mayor’s initiative on trust and values. This was designed, he said; ‘To find ways of embedding the right behaviours and culture in every organisation and individual connected with the City’. ‘If we embed the right values’, he went on… ‘we will also sharpen the City’s competitive advantage. Our reputation for probity will be enhanced, and our strength in innovation protected.’ Speaking on the importance of the Channel Islands to the City, he discussed their role in providing liquidity to the UK market. He described them as being significant in their own right, and praised the Channel Island Stock Exchange, hailing it as a truly international brand. ‘The Channel Islands are hugely important to the City’s international competitiveness’ , declared Sir John to the delegates.

James McDiarmid, Consultant Plastic Surgeon, comments on the recent news that the UK may soon be charging VAT on aesthetic surgery. The UK aesthetic industry is the only area of private healthcare that shows year on year healthy growth. The recession has had little impact on top established names like James McDiarmid who increasingly sees patients seeking to create a refreshed new look in order to optimize their employment opportunities in an increasingly competitive workplace. “The newly found confidence conferred by even the subtlest intervention can have a dramatic effect on patient’s work and social lives.” Says McDiarmid, “People feel liberated from a feature that may not only have been causing aesthetic distress through disproportion but may also have had serious psychological repercussions.” Unfortunately H.M.R.C. is casting a shadow over this healthy niche industry by threatening to add VAT for procedures being performed solely for aesthetic reasons. The issue of whether procedures are being carried out purely for ‘aesthetic’ purposes is a thorny one says McDiarmid. Any experienced plastic surgeon will tell you that it is rare for any clinical studies that show improved self-esteem and confidence following surgery. Taking this a step further, if the procedure is being undertaken for psychological benefit, then perhaps all psychotherapeutic and psychiatric interventions could also attract VAT? Nothing is as black and white as the legislators might like. For example surgery for hooded eyelids is often performed to improve a patients field of vision. Breast reduction surgery, which unfortunately is performed all too rarely under the NHS, confers huge and often life changing functional benefits for patients by alleviating WORDS

neck, back and shoulder pain. Even face and browlift surgery is sometimes performed to alleviate symptoms of drooping or watery eyes which may be a consequence of tumour, trauma or birth injury. So where does one draw the line? “The only tangible benefit is for practitioners who currently have to pay the VAT on consumable items such as dermal fillers, skincare products and botox. They will now be able to pass the VAT burden onto the patient and claim the VAT back for themselves. I am certain though that every practitioner I know would far rather remain the end VAT payer than see a 20% hike in prices across the board.“ adds McDiarmid. “This threatened price hike is in the context of the UK already being an expensive geographical location for patients to choose to undertake their surgery in. We already see people flocking to cheaper clinics in other European countries and further afield when although the standards of immediate care may be adequate, there is inevitably very poor long-distance support and followup and little or no legal recourse in the event of complications. Will this trend increase if 20% VAT is added onto the already high price tag? Most certainly, yes. This will leave the NHS with and even greater burden of cosmetic tourism problems to sort out, shrink the UK based industry and lead to less VAT being collected overall. “ James McDiarmid is a fully accredited UK based plastic surgeon engaged in full time private practice who visits Jersey regularly to see patients and to provide strong support and follow up. Based in the Island Medical Center, St Helier, he is offering free 5 minute consultations on November 14th from 12.45 – 14.00.

Jersey Fishermen’s ‘Threat to protest in Guernsey waters’ COMMERCIAL FISHING is as tough and marginal a business as it gets. Though modern technology may make some aspects of the job easier, there’s much more to the work nowadays than the physical act of getting out there and catching fish. These days Fishing is as much about forward thinking - good area and conservation management - often under the pressure of seemingly counter-intuitive legislation. Unsurprisingly, when something threatens already hard earned livelihoods, not to mention the careers and even homes of fishermen, feelings run very high. Such is the case with the deal between an apparent ‘Bailiwick Waters Commission’ - Guernsey, Alderney and Sark - and the UK to extend their protected territory from 3 to 12 miles. This will exclude much of the Jersey fleet from their established - and well managed - areas, and as voiced by Don Thompson of Jersey Fisherman’s Association - be an ‘erosion fishermen’s rights.’ The ‘flat’ section of the median line of Guernsey’s 12 mile limit cuts the important crab grounds to the West of the Paternosters reef off to Jersey fishermen.

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

Despite the dramatic title of this article, Don Thompson - President of the JFA - is quick to assert that Jersey Fishermen are not opposed to the introduction of a properly enforced Fisheries Management Agreement between Bailiwick of Guernsey and the UK. He is also quick to point out that there has never been a problem between Jersey and Guernsey fishermen - relationships are strong and enduring between the fleets. In fact the much reported ‘threat’ to steam en masse into Guernsey was actually mis-represented in the media - what he actually said was ‘we don’t want to have to take our fleet to Guernsey and have a show of solidarity there.’ The comment was intended to display the strength of feelings - and it’s hardly surprising if you look a little further into what is currently going, and what preceded it. In October 2003, Guernsey’s States - in a supposed attempt to comply with EU regulations - extended the ‘Bailiwick Zone’ of their fishing territory to twelve miles from the previous three. Before this any British boat could legitimately fish these waters, but the majority of fishing done particularly to the West of Jersey was done by Jersey, Sark and Guernsey boats - and had been that way for generations.

Below: The Golden Grain, one of Jerseys oldest fishing boats on the sea’s.

The new rules meant a license was required from the Guernsey Sea Fisheries Committee to fish these grounds, and in what Don Thompson describes as a ‘flawed and discriminatory process’, sixty-eight Jersey boats were refused the necessary permits. Guernsey’s then Fisheries Commission vice-president, Deputy Lyndon Trott, said at the time; “The problem is in Jersey where they went for a unilateral system, they did not want to be part of the process,” - “They basically wanted to shut up shop and that’s come back to haunt them.” These comment made by Deputy Trott seem somewhat flippant when you consider that the Jersey fleet had expanded because of the legitimate ability to fish these areas for generations - and that suddenly removing the rights of this established section of the fleet put people’s Mortgaged boats and houses in jeopardy - potentially ruining lives. The reduced area simply couldn’t support the sixty-eight boats and crews - not to mention the added pressure on fish stocks closer to Jersey as the displaced boats upped and moved their gear into permitted waters. This flies in the face of good management - it increased take from these waters overall - and reduced the catches for individual boats, thus making them less profitable and having to ‘fish harder’. The JFA took the fight as far as the Privy Council - the body that advises the heads of state - a move that cost an enormous amount of the associations resources and money. If Guernsey’s move was to protect fish stocks, these resources could have been spared and put into conservation methods, if only Guernsey would have entered into consultation - rather than ‘fight it all the way’. It was overturned eventually, by JFA’s challenge to the legal competence of Guernsey to legislate in the first place, given the court agreed discriminatory factors.

Four years and large costs - not to mention time off from actually fishing for JFA members later, the whole thing was overturned anyway. So, when Don Thompson asserts that ‘no-one wants to go back there’, you can easily understand the sentiment. This time, however, Don acknowledges that things are a little different. There are ‘new faces and some pretty reasonable people there this time’ according to Don. ‘We would like to see it succeed, but they haven’t yet made the effort - or appear to want to - consult on how they’ll handle the rights of Jersey fishermen.’ Consultation, says Don, is the answer. This is how Guernsey can find an understanding of Jersey’s position. Further to this, he believes that separate Jersey and Guernsey FMA’s are counter productive. Guernsey’s Bailiwick waters encompass the three main Islands - why not encompass all four, include Jersey and strike up a Channel Islands FMA? Don says this would go some way to protecting the Channel Island fishing industry as a whole from the ‘bullying’ of the EU - who’s legislations often affect Channel Islands fishing even though the research hasn’t taken into account the differences in stocks and species proliferation unique to our waters. ‘Better to stand together in a fight’ - claims Don, and who can argue with that logic? Shamefully, logic hasn’t always played a role in these matters, and this is why the JFA feel the need to voice their concerns and proposed solutions before it all gets out of hand - again. If fishing is to continue as a viable profession - and there are plenty of young up and coming Jersey fishermen willing to invest the now considerable amounts of money and education that the modern job requires - there must be some mutual cooperation between Islands displayed. Don and the JFA remain hopeful but steadfast - and should they need to show solidarity, all are prepared. But we, like they themselves, hope that common sense will this time win-out.

JERSEY OVERSEAS AID COMMISSION is committed to joining with others in reducing poverty and suffering in areas of the World where basic necessities so often taken for granted in Jersey, are sadly lacking. Working closely with private and voluntary sectors, and providing support to recognised local charities similarly committed to humanitarian needs, the JOAC won acclaim from Oxfam, British Red Cross and Save the Children amongst others. However, it simply couldn’t perform it’s duties without volunteers. The Commission holds it’s launch evening annually, to give prospective volunteers an insight into what is required, and how they can become involved. Next year, the Jersey Overseas Aid Commission will undertake three major community work projects, across three countries with varying needs; Bangladesh, Nepal and Uganda.

FEATURES

Volunteers are needed, as ever, and anyone wishing to find out just what the issues are, what is expected of volunteers, and how they can take the first steps towards giving time, energy and care to those less fortunate are urged to attend the 2012 launch evening. Taking place at St Mary’s & St Peter’s Church, Wellington Hill, at 7.30pm on Tuesday 8th of November, there will be a presentation given on each project. Members of the commission and sub-committee will be available to answer any questions potential volunteers may have. If you ever felt the need to make a difference, and wanted to see a part of the world through the eyes of it’s people, this is where you begin. Jersey Weekly has provided some information on each project, in the hope that we can help encourage some more people to at least attend the launch evening, and maybe lend their hands.

BANGLADESH,INDIA

The South Asian Sovereign State of Bangladesh is amongst the most densely populated countries in the world. It’s geographical location in the low lying Ganges Delta with over 75% of the land under 10m above sea level and 80% designated officially as flood plains make it a hard existence. The soil naturally contains arsenic that flooding carries into the water table, and mortality is high, despite the large population. The country has opportunity to develop, but many of the population lack the necessary education to ensure proper management of the many issues that affect them. Jersey Overseas Aid Commission aims to build a primary school in the Muktaram Village - in the Kurigram district, Northern Bangladesh - as it’s first 2012 project. With a population of 2 million people living around 17 rivers, and mainly working in rice paddies, the average child in the area has little chance of gaining an education currently. What usually transpires is an early introduction into the agriculture (rice) in the area. This means very hard work for very little pay, and exposure to the arsenic in the soil and water of the rice fields that can lead to health problems. A local charity VIEW asked the JOAC for assistance, as government funding for building and running schools is unfortunately nonexistent. The planned help is to provide labour and materials to build a four classroom block - part of a school in development - in brick. Foundations may need to be dug, and it is expected that all mixing of concrete and cement will need to be done by hand. Through experience, the JOAC has found that an equally proportioned team of male and females aged between 18 and 70 - with a good work ethic - is the most effective way to tackle building projects such as this. Ideally the team would include some skilled tradesmen and a nurse, but anyone from any walk of life can help. All you require is willingness and compassion, and the ability to pitch in with a team and work hard. Volunteers can expect to live in a very basic manner during service - dormitory style with four people to a room - and water and electricity may be intermittent. It goes without saying that applicants need be

32

physically resilient. The basic nature of the accommodation, the humidity and 30 degree temperatures and the requirement to work continuously under such conditions mean that reasonable physical fitness is essential. A recommended kit list will be provided, and accepted volunteers are required to make a financial contribution of £550 to the project. £50 is returnable upon completion.

The Republic of Uganda is a landlocked country in East Africa bordered by Kenya, Rwanda, The Democratic Republic of the Congo, South Sudan and Tanzania. It’s status as one of the world’s poorest countries for decades was a result of bad economic policies, much in-fighting and instability - despite the considerable natural resources. In contrast to some other poor African countries - such as Ethiopia - the soil is fertile and agriculture such as coffee beans as well as copper and cobalt mining. This didn’t stop devastating poverty from running rampant across the country under the dictatorship of Idi Amin and the subsequent civil war. Children in Uganda have historically faced hardships that are beyond comprehension. Displacement, torture and forced child labour are all potential problems - the documentary film ‘Invisible Children’ highlights many of these - and human rights organisations have have been campaigning in the country for decades. JOAC are focusing their efforts in the country in 2012 on the building of teachers accommodation at Mifumi Primary School in Tororo, Eastern Uganda. The school started as a series of run down shacks with some lessons held in the shade of trees nearby. One family’s vision to provide education to the beleaguered children of Mifumi Village saw the introduction of The Mifumi Project. Much support from all over the

world saw the construction of new classrooms and a nursery. These soon filled with children eager to learn - and as a result the school consistently expanded. The rural location, poor transport and large size of the area meant that the demand for qualified teachers soon exceeded supply. The JOAC and the Jersey based Trinity Trust supported MIFUMI and built staff accommodation nearby. A clean water well complete with pumping and storage equipment was installed. The current project is to provide three further accommodation units close to the school and allow qualified teachers to live on site. This will keep alive the original dream of education the village children and giving them a brighter future. Similarly to the Bangladesh project, a team made of equal amounts of males and females aged between 18 and 70 is ideal. Skilled Tradesmen are obviously highly prized - likewise nursing staff - but again, the desire to work is paramount, and no skills are strictly necessary. This project requires only three weeks away from home, and as such is ideal for first time volunteers wishing to gain some experience before undertaking more expansive projects. The climate is typically African - hot and at times humid, other times dry - changeable, and volunteers may find themselves working in conditions they are unused to. A reasonable standard of fitness is required, as is the financial commitment of £550 and the need to provide your own personal kit.

JERSEY OVERSEAS AID

Issue 105, Friday, 4th November 2011

FEATURES

NEPAL The Federal Republic of Nepal is a sovereign state in South Asia. It is located in the Himalayan mountain range and bordered by China and India. The countries 10 million work force suffers from a severe shortage of skilled labour. At least 25% of the population live under the international poverty line and political events have severely impacted the potentially lucrative tourist industry in the country. This is a shame given the stunning scenery that Nepal is famous for. Roughly two thirds of women and one third of men in Nepal are illiterate - there is an ‘Education for All’ scheme in place, funded in 2009 by the World Bank, and the country does have several universities. Jersey Overseas Aid has established that the area of Mahottari, Central Region, Janakpur Zone, Dhanusa District, Nepal could benefit from assistance. The JOAC project is aiming to build a new home for 80 to 100 children - both male and female - a primary school and a small clinic to provide free medical treatment for the village. Children of the village and surrounding areas will benefit from the education the school can offer, as well as the security offered by the home. The home will be run by Eternal World Ministries - a Christian organisation founded by Pastor John

34

Raijah. The EWM is experienced in running such establishments - they currently run six children’s homes, five in India and one in Nepal - and feed and care for about seven-hundred children each day. Although local construction workers will take care of the major first fixing work, the team from JOAC will be aiding in labouring, fitting out and decorating the home, school and clinic. Again, an equally divided team of male and female volunteers aged between 18-70 is ideally required. Skills, trades and medical or nursing experience is valuable, but not as valuable as being a committed team member and hard worker. Physically demanding work for eight solid hours a day would be expected of volunteers, five and a half days a week. As such a reasonable standard of fitness is required. The climate is hot, but considerably colder by night. Volunteers can expect to work in conditions hotter than they are used to. Accommodation is dormitory style and very basic, making use of the local church building facilities. Water and electricity supplies may be very un-reliable and solar showers and candles will need to be utilised. Access to phone networks is likely to be sparse, if at all. Each accepted volunteer will need to make a financial contribution of £550 and provide their own personal kit. A recommended kit list will be provided and £50 will be returned after the project is completed.

FOR THEM FOR NOW FOREVER 11-11-11

They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of sun and in the morning We will remember them Laurence Binyon’s poem For the Fallen, September 1914

The second Sunday of November is Remembrance Sunday, also known as Remembrance Day. At 11am men, women and children all across Britain hold a two minute silence to remember the millions who have died in war. The British Legion launched their 2011 Poppy Appeal on 30th October in a Field of Remembrance at the Cenotaph. Poppies are available Island wide until Saturday 12 November. The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal raised more than £36 million in total last year with the island poppy appeal raising £180,000. Poppies are worn to show others that you are remembering those who died for their country. The reason poppies are used is because they are the flowers which grew on the battle fields after the First World War ended. Poppies are also used to raise money for all the old soldiers who are still alive. Each year, volunteers will sell these poppies in the street all over Britain. Armistice Day is on 11 November. A two minute silence is observed at 11am on 11th day of the 11th month and this year being the 11th year. This is when the First World War, came to an end in 1918. But now, this anniversary is used to remember all the people who’ve died in wars since World War I. This includes World War II, the Falklands War, the Gulf War, and conflicts in Bosnia, Rwanda and Kosovo. The first two minute silence was held on 11 November 1919, when King George V asked the public to observe a silence at 11am. This was one year after the end of World War 1. He made the request so “the thoughts of everyone may be concentrated on reverent remembrance of the glorious dead”.

Words // Rebecca Seller Feature Design // Jon Moore

Many schools and organisations in Jersey will take place in a 2 minute silence on the 11/11/11 at 11am to remember all those who died for our country. Concordia are marking the occasion with a free choir concert on Remembrance Day at St. Mary’s Parish Church with a retiring collection. The funds raised will go to The British Legion and Concordia. There is a poppy appeal coffee morning being held on Saturday 12th November St. Lawrence Parish Hall 10am. The Island’s official memorial service for Remembrance Day is at the cenotaph in St Helier, on Sunday 11 November, with a moment of silence at 11.00 GMT. As is customary, The Royal British Legion Jersey Branch is organising the Parade. The O.C. of the Jersey Field Squadron will command the Parade. After the Service and Parade there will be a March Past at which, His Excellency General Sir John McColl KCB, CBE, DSO Lieutenant Governor of Jersey will take the Salute.

WHAT’S ON

With two years - and one hundred and five issues - behind us, we here at Jersey Weekly Magazine are extremely grateful for our readership. Our tagline has always been the question ‘What’s in it for you?’ - and we’d really like you to get involved and tell us. We’re marking our second year of publication by giving our readers a platform to air your views, stories or ask questions - in our upcoming new Reader’s Emails pages. We’d like to introduce a brand new forum, for you the reader to open up in turn; to the Island, your fellow readers, with your opinions in print. Have you seen an article or feature in Jersey Weekly that you liked, disliked, agreed or disagreed with - or you thought missed a valuable point? Do you have something you’d like to see featured, or feel strongly about - such as the environment, politics, music and arts, trends in Jersey, for instance - or simply want to air your views on Island life? We’re obviously looking for constructive and civilised critique - but more than this, we want to get a picture of who our readers are. We want to establish a relationship with the people of Jersey and tailor our product to be something of value to you - to make ‘What’s in it’… actually ...’For you!’ As our issue numbers climbed steadily past the big 100, we took a look back 200 years into the history of publications in Jersey with a feature we ran in the second birthday issue. What quickly became apparent was that a true feel for the time - in ever-evolving language and common opinion - could be had by reading the comments and questions of the reader. With Jersey Weekly rapidly becoming a recognised ‘part of the furniture’ when it comes to media in the Island, we believe that similarly, letters - albeit electronically submitted - from our readers may give future investigators into the archives a true idea of the collective consciousness of our time. You can be part of History - getting your views on the record. So what are you waiting for? Get pounding on those keyboards and if you have something to say - email it to letters@jerseyweekly.com We can’t wait to hear from you.

WHAT’S ON

Jersey Weekly and our sister company, Jersey Events, have been publishing photos of community, corporate, sports and social events for the past six years (in the case of jerseyevents.com). We are lucky to have a team of talented photographers behind us, and we are very proud of some of our covers and feature shoots. These days just about everybody has a camera with them thanks to the meteoric rise of the camera-phone. We’d very much like to see what you see - and offer our readers a chance to get their pics in print, on our upcoming new Reader’s Photos pages. Photography is a much admired and equally much practiced art-form. It has inspired people and captured moments for posterity since the advent of the traditional camera and the metamorphosis into modern day digital photography. Nowadays it’s easier than ever to capture, edit and share pictures of a quality that would seem magical to early pioneers of the art. Just about anyone can have a go, and results can be stunning - whether by lucky fluke or meticulously planned and technically executed method. It is often said that a picture can convey more than a thousand words, and as cliches go, we kind of like that one. We live in a beautiful Island with stunning beaches, massive tides that change the look of the Island completely constantly every day without fail - and a dynamic population that seems as diverse as can be; culturally, socially and visually. We have a concentration of some of the world’s most sought after cars. We have Jersey Cows and steam clocks and upside-down boat buildings - statues and monuments and all sorts of other landmarks that have far more symbolism and significance to Islanders than an uninitiated visitor could imagine. We have some of the finest Sunsets you’ll ever see and a moonscape of low water rocks that challenge mariners and host sea creatures that aren’t found anywhere else in some cases. What we’re saying is Jersey is one giant photo opportunity - so, we’d like to see what you’ve got; you don’t need to be a technical wizard - though if you are you’re equally welcome to send us anything you think needs to be seen. We’d like funny, thought provoking, impressive or beautiful, touching or galvanising images from our readers. Similarly to the ‘Reader’s Emails’ we’d like to see our readers have a presence in the archives of Jersey - to be remembered and recorded in print. Of course our magazines are archived online at www.jerseyweekly.com too. Please submit your photo’s, in JPEG format, along with your name, contact details and the location you took them - and feel free to include any stories that accompany the images - to; photos@jerseyweekly.com

The BAFTA-nominated Live at the Apollo returns, showcasing the very best of British comedy talent.

Piers Morgan talks to legend Rolf Harris in an intimate interview which lifts the lid on Rolf’s life and tells how he has kept generations of viewers enthralled throughout his 60year career. Rolf reveals his battle with depression and also discusses how his wife and daughter paid a price for his success.

Jeremy, Richard and James take an Aston DBS Volante, a Ferrari California and a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder to Romania in search of an obscure stretch of tarmac that some hardcore drivers claim is nothing less than the greatest road in the world. James makes a rare appearance on the track as he compares two absurdly powerful limos.

A high-tech natural history event, Hippo: Nature’s Wild Feast presents the most comprehensive illustration to date of nature’s food chain in action. The programme, live from Zambia’s Luangwa Valley, shows the events of the past fortnight as an entire ecological system consumed the enormous carcass of an adult hippo.

Micky Flanagan introduces one of comedy’s rising stars, Seann Walsh; and Irish favourite Jason Byrne is also set to make an appearance.

Peter Jones meets two of the country’s most well known entrepreneurs to get into the what made them millionaires. Peter gets to grips with Richard Reed - co-founder of Innocent, with a 165 million pound turnover, and Michelle Mone, the self-made inspiration behind the multimillion pound Ultimo lingerie business.

But 150 years ago, the world was watching for a very different reason although the spectacle on display was as high-tech as anything on offer today.

In Time 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.

Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn 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 Three Musketeers Stephen Myers is a young political idealist who’s going places. He’s clever, popular and has just landed the job of press agent for a candidate he really believes in. Suave, apparently honourable Governor Mike Morris is running in the presidential primary race for the Democrats. But Stephen is about to fall prey to the devious power plays of veteran political operatives, including a rival campaign manager. He’s also seduced by a young intern.

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.

The Mount Words: Rick Jones

‘Uniquely Flats’ is Jersey’s newest Estate Agency. Their name - and their tag-line ‘Wisely dedicated to flats’ should leave the potential home-seeker in no doubt that they have focused their expertise in the area of apartment dwellings. With rental and sale properties on their books that can accommodate any reasonable budget - quick responses and a caring, flexible and personal service assured - Uniquely Flats are becoming first port of call for self contained units in the Island. With this in mind, the two flats offered for sale in the rural, ‘gated’ development on the site of the former Bouley Bay Hotel and pub make fine examples of what the company has to offer. Situated at the top of Bouley Bay, in a peaceful, countryside location surrounded by trees the former Bouley Bay Hotel has stood watch over the verdant stretch of coastline below for more than a century. Views across to neighbouring France and breathtaking cliff or country lane walks just outside the walls of the hotel grounds - as well as a popular bar with just enough local charm, make visitors ‘wish they lived there’ according to the archived guest book entries. Now Uniquely Flats can offer just that. The hotel was popular with honeymooners in the heydays of Jersey’s tourism - in the 1920’s and then in the post war 1950’s, when the ‘Honeymoon Trip’ incentive offered newlyweds special deals on travel, accommodation and entertainment. Whilst many online memoirs from the ‘fifties speak of the buzzing town scene, as many couples first trips overseas saw them staying in St Helier, some of the nicest descriptions of Jersey come from those who sought a more tranquil start to their future as Mr and Mrs.

56

The Bouley Bay Hotel - or The Mount Hotel as it was alternately known - was advertised for just such couples. Reading the memoirs of a few online, one is instantly struck by the descriptions of the surroundings and atmosphere - mainly because it has barely changed. Unlike much of the Island, the area hasn’t seen large amounts of development, and the countryside, skylines, views and general rural ambience remain remarkably rustic. When the Hotel was subsequently redeveloped into apartments, the designers commendably kept the rustic feel and general footprint the elements that made this such a lovely area - but capitalized on the privacy of the surrounding grounds and large granite walls to make ‘The Mount’ a lovely modern ‘gated community’.

‘Gated communities’ are extremely popular across the Atlantic in the USA and Canada. The security and privacy of living in an area with controlled entrances offers peace of mind and worry free communal safety for the homes, vehicles and most importantly, the people who live within. Set in an already peaceful and wooded part of the Island a potential owner of an apartment at ‘The Mount’ could expect old fashioned style carefree country life, yet in a comfortable spacious and bright home with all modern conveniences. The area is sparsely populated, yet is on a well served bus route and within easy reach of shops. The world renowned Durrell (wildlife park) is nearby, complete with it’s new Firefly cafe that offers fine food and evening dining, including to non-visitors. Currently, Uniquely Flats are offering both a two-bedroom, open plan style country apartment on the lower ground floor, and a spacious one bedroom apartment on the first floor, with large external store-room. Both apartments share the use of the communal gardens and areas, and have allocated parking areas, thoughtfully including dedicated car washing facilities. Plenty of visitor parking is allowed for inside the complex. Additionally, the ground lower floor flat features two dedicated patio areas.

Beginning at the lower ground floor, the two bedroom apartment is accessed via a few stairs down to the delightful paved patio areas. Hedged and with flowers and trees surrounding, the entrance is private and secluded, yet welcoming. The apartment has been refurbished throughout to a very high standard. It has a roomy feel, yet concedes nothing to cosiness. The oak floored, open plan design blends the lounge, kitchen and dining areas into an impressive first-sight upon entering from the patio, and immediately feels warm and homely yet uncluttered. A Rangemaster oven, Belfast sink, granite work surfaces and integrated appliances make an attractive, practical modern kitchen. Recessed lights feature throughout. The bedrooms are carpeted and feature built in wardrobes. The larger of the two bedrooms has a single door to the second patio and lawn area. The bathroom is spacious and clean, featuring white sanitaryware - a bath with glass shower-screen for the over bath shower, and a stylish pedestal sink. There is a feature light over the wash basin, and a heated towel rail. The floor is tiled in attractive stone. The first floor apartment opens into a hallway with doors to all rooms and a dedicated ‘airing’ cupboard. The lounge is spacious and bright, with large windows overlooking the picturesque grounds.

The room features a stylish chandelier and attractive curtains and matching carpet. The apartment is once again open plan between the lounge, kitchen and dining areas. The kitchen has modern units - high and low level. Indesit appliances - a four ring ceramic hob with extractor, oven and washer dryer are all fitted and compliment the design of the kitchen units. The floor is tiled in stone. The bathroom is extremely attractive, finished in stone tiling and high quality sanitaryware. The bath and shower have a glass screen and the pedestal style wash basin has a feature light and mirror dedicated. The large double bedroom has a carpet to match the hall. A large window allows plenty of natural light, and views of the gardens and surrounding wooded areas. High quality fitted curtains assure privacy and added winter warmth. ‘The Mount’ is the ideal residence for anyone wishing to live ‘out of town’ and in a country style home, without the large maintenance requirements of typical rural houses. Ideal for people who want a haven from the bustle of everyday life, but not so far out of town that they would ever feel isolated or cut off. The building, grounds and gates are attractive - not imposing, and the complex sits in one

MOTORING

Issue 105, Friday, 4th November 2011

This is the Nissan 370Z, an aggressive and muscular two-seat sports car with a grunty V6 engine and masses of driver appeal.

NISSAN 370Z IT’S A ‘SUPER EVOLUTION’ of the much-loved 350Z the car it replaces - which is why the design may look familiar. But the 370 is actually shorter, with a tighter wheelbase to make it look squat and mean. It’s also wider and lower, aiding handling and stability. Everything that was good about the 350Z (and there was plenty) is still here, but it’s all been pumped up by about twenty percent. So the V6 engine’s capacity has been increased from 3.5 to 3.7-litres: it’s now got 326bhp at 7,000rpm, and 269lb ft torque at 5000rpm, so there’s more urge in the mid-range. The weight, though, has been reduced by 30kg meaning the 370Z is significantly faster than its predecessor. It can sprint from 0-62mph in 5.3 seconds and onto a top speed of 155mph. But what’s great about the 370Z is that it feels meaty to drive. The controls - steering, brakes, clutch and gearbox are well-weighted but on the heavy side so when you hustle the Z down the road, it feels like a compact muscle car. The engine doesn’t zip up to the redline either, instead lumbering up as the power builds. This is a totally different experience from driving agile and accurate rivals like the Porsche Cayman. Nissan admits the 350Z’s cabin was a weak point, so it’s focussed on improving the 370’s interior. It is much more upmarket and luxurious, with touches like a knee pad on the centre console to cushion its occupant’s legs during hard cornering. But it’s still not class leading in terms of button ergonomics and overall quality. The 370Z gets some innovative technology, notably the ingenious Synchro Rev system that blips the throttle for you during manual downshifts, replicating heel and toe braking. It means you get the perfect downshifts every time and helps to stabilise the car during hard braking. A seven speed automatic gearbox also locks up impressively well and lends itself nicely to the nature of this car’s engine.

To test drive this car please call Motor-Mall on: 635566 or visit Motor-Mall at: La Grande Route de St John, St Helier

Appointments & Achievements Compiled by Tiffany Shales, news@jerseyweekly.com

Hawksford appoints Jerseyman to manage Swiss office Hawksford Group has appointed Grant Osborn-Smith as Swiss office manager. In his new role, Jerseyman Mr OsbornSmith, will be dividing his time between Jersey and Zurich and will be responsible for setting up the processes and procedures for a growing Swiss client base. Mr Osborn-Smith, 47, who was educated at St Michael’s school before studying at Eton College and Bristol University, began his career as a chartered accountant in Jersey. After moving into the trust sector, where he gained more than 12 years of experience, he then moved to Switzerland to set up a Zurich office for Rawlinson and Hunter. After establishing another trust company in 2009, STM Swiss, he then spent a year on sabbatical, working in the commercial sector. Mr Osborn-Smith has worked with Hawksford on a number of projects in the past and it was these positive experiences, which prompted his move to the Hawksford Group. “The Hawksford Group has a strong reputation and employs some great people,” said Mr Osborn-Smith. “It is an exciting opportunity for me to join this dynamic firm and to help play a role in integrating its Zurich and Jersey offices. I also hope I can help the company achieve its ambitious global growth targets.” Mr Osborn-Smith, who has worked with clients boasting assets of £250million plus, will be responsible for the development of trust work for Hawksford’s Swiss company, L-S&S GmbH. “We are delighted to welcome Grant to the team,” said Peter Murley, chief executive, Hawksford. “He has a wealth of trust experience having worked in the industry for many years and through the start up of two new business in Switzerland. It is perfect for us to find someone of Grant’s calibre who has intricate knowledge of both Jersey and Zurich.” Away from work Mr Osborn-Smith enjoys skiing in Switzerland and taking part in watersports such as windsurfing, in Jersey. He also enjoys outdoor pursuits and spending time with his wife and two children. Mr Osborn-Smith’s father, Roland, has just been awarded France’s most prestigious award, the insignia of the Chevalier of the Légion d’Honneur. Lieutenant Roland OsbornSmith served as gunnery control officer on board HMS Albrighton during WWII and was instrumental in destroying many German ships. He also escorted General de Gaulle back to France after the

Normandy landing. Hawksford is a leading independent funds and fiduciary services provider with a range of differentiated product offerings, which include investment fund administration, employee solutions, law services including wills and probate, family office and the management of image and royalty rights. Hawksford acquired Zurich based firm, L-S&S GmbH, earlier this year

Commenting on his appointment, Paul said, “I will be working closely with the Santander Private Banking Global Division as we bring on new products and services for our clients. We can draw on the expertise of being part of a large global private banking group, ensuring our clients have access to the very best products, funds and services.” Colin Huelin, Managing Director said “Santander Private Banking is focussed on both the local Jersey market and more specialised parts of the UK private banking arena.

One can think what one likes about globalisation and the dematerialisation of music, but these things allowed us to recently discover the 70s works of this great songwriter, one of the first and only Iranian rock stars to be censured for seventeen years after the Islamic revolution of 1979. His songs were first brought back to the light in 2005 beyond the frontiers when he encoded them in MP3 format, before the label Now Again published a hefty anthology (Back from the Brink, Pre-Revolution Psychedelic Rock from Iran 1973-79). This anthology is a beautiful introduction to his works, at the

crossroads between Persian traditional music (legend has it that his first instrument, a santur, a kind of local hammered dulcimer, was given to him by his father at the age of ten) and western psychedelic rock. His coming to France was to be a big event.”

La Motte Street Song School Over the Christmas holidays La Motte Street are to repeat their highly successful Song School. Young people aged 1116yrs will have an opportunity part in a four day opportunity to develop their talents as singer-songwriters. Tom Falle, a local respected young musician and now student in England will again take the role of lead tutor, ably supported by experience staff from La Motte Street. The tutors will guide young people through a range of experiences to develop both writing and musical skill. This is the second course La Motte Street are running this year and Senior Youth Worker and course director Ivor Richards said the summer holiday course been a fantastic success. “Not only did young people work on the musical side of things we also took them out on an ‘inspiration day’ where they were asked to write down how they felt and what they saw as we toured the Town and island – everything from Gros Nez to the CoOp. Once again we will work on accompaniments using participants and tutors skills and then we will turn the whole four days of words, accompaniments and ideas into a professionally produced CD of their original material. I have every expectation the Christmas course will be equally challenging, exciting and a great investment in our young creative musicians”. La Motte Street will maintain its practice to draw on the enthusiasms and experiences of young Jersey students to run the course. “Tom brings a fantastic musical and lyrical ability into the course and everyone is guaranteed to leave on a fantastic high after recording their songs” said Ivor. The Course is due to run between Christmas and New Year, 27th – 30th December. “We only have limited spaces so we are encouraging those who are interested to apply early” said Ivor. Application forms are available at La Motte Street Studios reception 3-6pm and 7.30-10pm weekdays or by ringing the course administrator Carmel Butel on 01534 729136 or emailing carmelbutel@youthservice.yc.je

Words By Michelle Parker Design Feature by Tiffany Shales

This year, Amnesty International has been celebrating 50 years of campaigning to protect the dignity and equal rights of people worldwide. The central theme of this year’s Jersey Human Rights Festival is that of ‘people on the move’, with the focus on migration, human trafficking, loss of homeland and refugees. A key aim of this year’s Festival is to raise awareness amongst young people in the Island of the reasons behind migration and trafficking, and of the human rights issues associated with such movement of people.

Issue 105, Friday, 4th November 2011 The films being shown will cover a variety of countries and situations, from the impact of China’s economic development on children left behind in the countryside, to a hard-hitting exposé of the dangers and violence facing young migrants in Central America. Monday 14 November sees the launch of the 7th Jersey Amnesty International Human Rights Festival, officially opened at 5.30pm by photojournalist Antonio Olmos whose exhibition, A Desperate Journey, runs until Saturday 26 November in the Berni Gallery at Jersey Arts Centre. This exquisite exhibition documents the extraordinary journey of migrants fleeing poverty and risking everything to enter Guatemala, Mexico and, ultimately, the United States, in the desperate hope for a better life. The week-long film screenings begin with Jersey Film Society’s presentation of Life, Above All at 8pm on Monday 14 November. The film, based on the awardwinning novel Chanda’s Secrets, captures the enduring strength of loyalty and a courage powered by the heart. On Tuesday 15 November at 8pm you can experience the documentary film Budrus about a Palestinian community organiser who unites local Fatah and Hamas members along with Israeli supporters in an unarmed movement to save his village from destruction by Israel’s Separation Barrier.

The feature film Incendies will be shown on Wednesday 16 November, followed by The Day My God Died on Thursday and Last Train Home on Friday, all at 8pm. Saturday is a busy day, with three films showing at 2pm, 5pm and 8pm: In This World, Man Push Cart and Sin Nombre. Speakers for the Festival include Irene Nasser from Just Vision. An experienced facilitator with expertise on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, she oversees creation and implementation of programmatic projects and materials for Palestinian and Israeli communities. Stepheny Petitte from International Justice Mission will be speaking on Thursday 17 November. IJM is a human rights agency that brings rescue to victims of slavery, sexual exploitation and other forms of violent oppression. On Friday 18 November, a Skype call will be made live to Mila Aung-Thwin who is the co-founder of EyeSteelFilm. He produced the feature documentaries Taqwacore: The Birth of Punk Islam, Rip: A Remix Manifesto, Up the Yangtze and Last Train Home. A second exhibition will be running from Monday 28 November to Saturday 10 December: No Man’s Land by Mishka Henner. This striking and unusual exhibition explores the margins of urban and rural environments in Europe as experienced by what appear to be women soliciting sex, all captured by Google Street View cameras. Sourcing locations from online forums in Spain and Italy where men share local knowledge on the whereabouts of sex workers, Henner combed through thousands of Street View pictures to produce this extraordinary set of provocative, haunting images. In addition to the films and exhibitions, a number of Island secondary schools will be participating in the Festival’s Education Programme, led by members of Amnesty’s Education Team, comprising film screenings, workshops and a presentation by Antonio Olmos. More information about the Jersey Amnesty International Human Rights Festival can be found in the dedicated brochure, from Jersey Arts Centre Box Office (01534 700444) or online: www.artscentre.je or www.jerseyhumanrightsfestival.org

Siegfried was the character which prompted Wagner to write The Ring saga, which is actually composed backwards, by starting with the hero’s death. Each of the four parts of the opera revolve around the protagonist, and in partthree, namesake; the composer’s cosmic vision focuses on the character’s early conquests. In this new and undeniably epic production, director Robert Lepage has chosen to exemplify Siegfried’s apparent naivety and his knowledge of fear; “he’s above morality. He’s like a perfect hero who doesn’t look forward or backward and just imprints his own will by his actions. But there’s a side of Siegfried that’s also very endearing. He craves companionship.”

The Canadian director found this new technological trick to make this latest effort unique. Expect to see computerized projections that interact with the set and create an optical illusion that you are watching the singers against a living, three-dimensional backdrop. The purpose of these optical illusions is to depict the natural world which surrounds the opera’s title character. The set weighs 45-ton, cost £90,000 and is nicknamed “The Machine”. It is composed of two dozen giant planks that rotate on a single axis and move up and down to form various shapes: a stand of trees, a mountainside and the roof of a cave.

Jay Hunter Morris takes on the challenge of the title role and will be joined by the stars of Das Rheingold and Die Walküre, the first two installments of Lepage’s Ring production. The distinguished cast of Wagner singers includes Deborah Voigt’s as Brünnhilde, Siegfried’s prize, Bryn Terfel as the Wanderer, and Eric Owens and Gerhard Siegel as the greedy brothers, Alberich and Mime.

The Met’s screening of Siegfried runs for approximately five and a half hours with two intervals. It will be broadcast at The Jersey Opera House on Sunday 6th November at 6pm. Tickets cost £17.50 and with concessions, £15. To book call the Box Office on 511 115 or book online www. jerseyoperahouse.co.uk RS577

For this third installment of Wagner’s great epic, Lepage introduces a new 3D technology as part of the projections that transform the set into startlingly dramatic images that readjust as the scenery moves and changes shapes. The innovative software has never before been used in a theatrical presentation. Siegfried is the only opera to make use of this technology, which will be utilized to create an enhanced sense of theatrical realism for Siegfried’s forest dwelling. “When you come to Siegfried,” Lepage says, “you can fully appreciate the complexity and genius of the leitmotifs Wagner has used to create another world. That is what we must do on-stage as well - create an organic world of dragons and bears and insects and other creatures, where Siegfried can prove himself the strong, fearless, virile hero.”

The 3-D projections give the surface an appearance of depth and movement. In the brooding opening measures of Acts 1 and 2, snakes and other creepy-crawly creatures will appear to be writhing through a thickly wooded terrain. Later, the rocks that form the dragon’s lair will appear to jut out in front of the audience. And — most magically of all — the forest bird who sings to Siegfried flies through the air and lands on the branches of trees. “The presence of water, the presence of grass, of moss — we want people to smell the forest. Of course, the orchestra will help to trigger those senses” affirms the passionate and dedicated director. Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi will lead the performance.

A DESPERATE JOURNEY Mexican born Antonio Zazuela Olmos is a photojournalist who covers the issues of human rights, the environment and conflict, in his work. He has been a photojournalist since 1988, beginning his career at the Miami Herald where he was a staff photographer for 3 years. Since 1994 he has been based in London and is now represented by the Eyevine Photo Agency. A dedicated Editorial and Portrait Photographer, Antonio has worked for magazines and newspapers around the world, with many of his images appearing in publications such as the Observer Magazine. Antonio was awarded with a First Place award at ‘World Press for the People’ in ‘The News’ category for his work in the Palestinian Occupied Territories in 2001.

‘A Desperate Journey’ is an exhibition by Antonio, which documents the journey of migrants fleeing poverty, heading to the United States from Nicaragua in the desperate hope of finding a better life. ‘A Desperate Journey’ won awards in the early 90s and has previously been exhibited in Miami and Atlanta in the USA.

When Jersey Weekly asked Antonio to describe the exhibition in one word, he found it almost impossible “migration, movement, colour, sadness, melancholy, adventure… tons of words came flowing out of me”. Antonio is an immigrant himself, so he said that he could certainly identify with the people in the photographs “My mother made a shorter, similar journey to the United States when were kids from Mexico”. He then commented that maybe the word he would use to describe the exhibition would be “empathy”. The message Antonio hopes to portray through the exhibition is that “People will always move to seek a better life, it is the history of Human civilisation”. Describing the photos as timeless, Antonio

commented that he could “easily make the same photographs today” (the originals were shot in 1989). He continued by saying “It is easy to dehumanize migrants but I hope that these photographs will make people think - It is not easy for a Human being to leave his home, tear up his roots for an uncertain life.” Antonio explains “I am not in love with the process of photography” nor is he in love with “cameras and lenses”. It was when he was around the age of 21 that he first discovered photography. “I discovered photography because I saw an exhibition by Bruce Davidson called East 100th Street’. He photographed the poorest neighbourhood in New York City in the 1960s. The photographs, when originally exhibited, created a debate about poverty and poor housing conditions but they were also beautiful.” Another influence of Antonio’s is Literature, Art and History. He says that the writings of Eduardo Galeano influence him as they combine journalism, history and literature. Many of the photographs in ‘A Desperate Journey’ have been included in recent exhibitions of Antonio’s work but he is thrilled that they are being exhibited again in Jersey. You can view ‘A Desperate Journey’ at the Berni Gallery in The Jersey Arts Centre from 14th November through to the 26th November. For more information on Antonio’s work visit www.antonioolmos.com

“Life, Above All” is a emotional and universal drama about a young girl who fights the fear and shame that have poisoned her community. The film captures the enduring strength of loyalty and a courage powered by the heart. Directed by South African filmmaker Oliver Schmitz, it is based on the international award winning novel “Chanda’s Secrets” by Allan Stratton. Hypocrisy, ignorance and fear are seen with almost unbearable clarity through the eyes of a South African girl in this study of AIDS stigma. In the village they call it “the bug”. Khomotso Manyaka gives a heart-wrenching performance as Chanda, a heroic 12 year-old driven by a child’s crystal-clear sense of injustice. We meet Chanda choosing a coffin for her baby sister; her drunken stepdad is a waste of space, her devoted mum seriously ill, putting the burden of looking after the family on her tiny shoulders. Chanda’s mother has AIDS passed on by her philandering, drunken husband, but Chanda does not know this. She has to sacrifice her future in order to find out the truth. The society Chanda lives in is in denial regarding the AIDS epidemic and ostracizes those suspected of having it. AIDS is a word that remains just under the tongue of the community. They know, but ignore, and refuse to face the problem tearing their world to pieces. The fear is palpable, and effectively blocks prevention education while casting a protective

barrier behind which superstition and rumor run wildly. This is why they believe sex with virgins or small children cure HIV or that condoms spread disease. Carol Preston from The Jersey Film Society explains “It was chosen because it throws light upon the continuing problem of educating everyone about AIDS, a problem we in the West have now more or less forgotten about, and does so in a very simple but deeply touching manner.” The subject is a devastatingly tragic one, but it suggests a way through by embracing unvarnished honesty. There is no other way to deal with adversity of any kind other than head-on, and it can be said that AIDS has been less damaging to Africa than the ignorance that nurtures it. The overall message of this film is that prejudice and superstition tear society apart, whilst failing to deal with the underlying problem. It has a great story-line and brilliant performances especially from Khomotso Manyak as Chanda, and so this film will appeal to everyone, not just those concerned about AIDS education. Life, Above All will be screened at The Jersey Arts Centre on Monday 14th November at 8pm. Tickets cost £5 (£3 for students) and are only available on the door. Please be advised that the film has a Certificate 12A therefore no one younger than 12 will be admitted unless accompanied by an adult.

The Jersey Film Society presents “Life, Above All” as part of the 7th Jersey Amnesty Human Rights Film Festival. The film tells the story of Chanda, a bright schoolgirl living in a South African township, who also has to look after her younger siblings because her mother is becoming increasingly sick with a supposedly mysterious illness.

Budras is the story of a village, it is a courageous and inspiring tale about finding new pathways to peace in the world's most divided region; it is a story, after so many years of failure, about what is possible in the Middle East.

This year's Human Rights Festival theme is 'People On The Move'; it brings together a range of films, both documentary and fiction, which address the topics of economic migration, human trafficking, and displacement from one's own homeland. The latter is the case in Budras, and it is particularly apt as it shows us not just a problem which has bedevilled the Middle East for ages, but also a very real way forward. To live in dignity, without fear, on one's own land is as precious as any human right. Budras is an award-winning documentary about Ayed Morrar, a Palestinian community organiser, who unites local Fatah and Hamas members as well as sympathetic Israelis, to stop the destruction of his home village of Budrus and its olive groves by the construction of Israel's Separation Barrier. Shockingly, Ayed's coalition agrees to utilise non-violent means only, surprising and frustrating the Israeli Army overseeing the barrier's construction. Ayed is eventually joined by his 15 year old daughter Iltezam who decides to form a women's contingent, taking the nonviolent protest directly to the front lines. The overall message of the film is that even in the face of decades of failure and violence, there is still hope that peace can prevail, notwithstanding generations of animosity. Where people, united, decide to make a stand for peace and forswear violence, peace can then become a reality. This is a story about how the unilateral decision of a few Palestinian villagers to choose a different path namely non-violence -to achieve success without bloodshed.

The film is about how political rivals - Fatah and Hamas - and their sworn enemies the Israelis can actually work together in Budrus and other villages to achieve that which has been thought by many to be impossible. It is not a film about victims and old hatreds, but rather a film about practical success and the non-violent movement - it is truly inspiring. The film proves that even after decades of violence and death that non-violence can be far more eloquent and effective than any weapon of war. What the village of Budrus achieves was not thanks to the manoeuvring of politicians but rather to the willingness of ordinary people to try a different path. Budrus will appeal to anyone who has followed, with despair, the seemingly endless circle of violence engulfing the Middle East. Even if you don't know much about the conflict, the courage of unarmed civilians standing up to an overwhelming military presence - and winning cannot help but inspire. If you are tired of hearing about victims and families torn apart by violence, here is an inspiring story. The Jersey Film Society is delighted to be welcoming Irene R. Nasser, Senior Manager, Jerusalem office, for Just Vision. Just Vision is the Washington DC NGO which produced the film Budrus. They bring together ordinary Palestinians and Israelis in order to begin to see one another as humans, rather than enemies. They work at the grassroots level to find a resolution to this decadesold dispute. Irene is an experienced facilitator who has initiated community programmes bringing together Palestinians and Israelis in order to foster dialogue. Irene will be speaking and answering questions from the audience after the film screening. Budrus will be screened at The Jersey Arts Centre on Tuesday 15th November at 8pm. Tickets cost, Adult ÂŁ6 and Student ÂŁ5.

Merchant House Brasserie, The weighbridge. St Helier • enquiries@museumbrasserie.co.uk • 510069

The Merchant House Brasserie can be found beside The Jersey Museum, set in a beautiful courtyard with fountains and flowers; a most ornate al fresco area which gives the feel of a restaurant far from the hustle and bustle of town. The restaurant itself is modern and unpretentious, cozy and warm with a welcoming bar and relaxed ambiance.

most perfectly balanced winter dish and is by far one of the tastiest things I’ve eaten in forever; it was melt-in-your-mouth amazing. My guest opted for the Black Bream, which was equally creative, served with breaded crab balls and crushed potatoes. Each dish at Merchant House comes with the right amount of accompaniment all within the price – no need to order extra veg or potatoes here.

Head Chef, Steve is a Scotsman with a passion for good, hearty food without fuss. Following a three and a half year stint as the Sous Chef at The Somerville Hotel (part of the Dolan Hotels Group, as is The Merchant House Brasserie), Steve now runs the kitchen at Merchant House with an International team of chefs from all over the world. The menu at Merchant House reflects British food at its best, starters such as Crisp Duck Scotch Egg served with Stornoway black pudding, asparagus, Dijon mustard sauce and wild herbs and the mouthwatering Seared Jersey Scallops served with belly pork, butternut puree, wild mushrooms and marsh samphire are just a couple of examples. Main courses are equally mouthwatering, with the perfect balance of fish dishes, meat dishes and vegetarian options on offer.

Our waiter, Stephen encouraged us to share a dessert, which we didn’t need too much persuading to do – he suggested the Dark Chocolate & Grand Marnier Tart with Candied Clementine, iced vanilla & almond mousse; a real treat indeed. Stephen was also most helpful in deciding from the well thought out wine list and although we’d chosen the Gavi di Gavi, he brought over a Malbec to accompany my Venison main course – perfect. Following dessert, our coffees came along with homemade petit fours… bite sized bits of perfection.

Ordering was a bit of a challenge, I wanted to try it all – but opted for the classic Smoked Scottish salmon with potted prawns, fresh leaves, saffron mayo and warm tomato & tarragon bread (made in-house) and my guest chose the aforementioned Scallops (I dived into her plate too and have to say that hers was one of the best starters I’ve had in a long time). The pork belly with the scallops was beautifully complimented by the sweet taste of the butternut squash puree… salivating as I type. For my main course, I went for the Scottish venison, cooked blue (one word - WOW); served with creamed savoy cabbage, sweetbread, roast salsifis, fondant potato and port wine sauce – this has to be the

The service at Merchant House is second to none, friendly and knowledgeable… Stephen was a joy. We were lucky to catch Steve, the Head Chef for a quick chat and found him to be one of the most amiable chefs around – not your typical stressed out hot-head, rather a placid and friendly food-loving Scotsman. It’s the people in a venue that establish the vibe and with a team like theirs at Merchant House, its no wonder the restaurant is such a pleasant place to eat or drink. I would recommend Merchant House for pre going-out dinner as it’s ideally situated at The Weighbridge… In fact, I’m already booked to go there again on 4th November and can’t wait (I might even go for the venison again… heaven on a plate). Many thanks to the staff at Merchant House for making us feel so very welcome, I look forward to eating there again in a week!

Jersey win against Blaydon Blaydon 6 Jersey 12 A late, late try by Mike Le Bourgeois clinched a thrilling victory for Jersey after the Islanders had struggled for most of the game to put points on the board.

In the other matches Stourbridge needed a last-minute penalty try to beat Wharfedale 23-20 and Sedgley Park held off a determined Cinderford effort to win 21-17.

Grouville FC name Jorge Marques player of the month

The result continued a series of close scorelines for away games this season: losses by 2 points (Fylde) and 3 (Cinderford); and wins by 1 (Stourbridge), 4 (Blackheath) and now 6 (Blaydon). Even the 24-9 success at Rosslyn Park was embellished with a converted try in the last play of the game. The late try atoned for a bad day in the kicking department for ‘Le Booj’ who missed a straightforward penalty early in the game, followed by the conversion to Steve O’Brien’s try midway through the first half. This was one of several first half chances for the visitors, but the only one to result in points. Gavin Painter put the home side in front with two penalties, and Blaydon’s prospects were further enhanced when Ashley Maggs was shown a yellow card for a dangerous tackle that some referees may have considered warranted more serious punishment. Maggs, who along with Chris Levesley were chosen on Jersey’s wing, ahead of Ed Dawson, was still off the field early in the second half when he was joined in the sin-bin by captain Graham Bell for another dangerous tackle. Ross Broadfoot replaced Guy Thompson as Ben Harvey attempted to match Blaydon in the three-quarters while short of the full complement of players.

Jorge Marques has won the inaugural Player of the Month award at Grouville FC.

Blaydon were the dominant side in the second period but this time it was the home team who failed to take their chances, and Jersey hung to the one-point deficit until they were restored to full numbers.

The awards are sponsored by local Japanese restaurant, Bento, and Jorge wins a meal for two following his impressive performances in the centre of midfield at the start of the season.

It was a question of which team would take a chance to register a winning score, and it was the side who’d been on the back foot for most of the second period - Jersey, with Le Bourgeois bursting clear following a loose kick to score close to the posts. Broadfoot’s conversion meant a six-point cushion, obliging Blaydon to score a converted try in added time to win. There were a few nervous moments for the visitors, but a crucial tackle by Broadfoot ended the Tynesiders final attack and the final whistle blew, disappointing the vast majority of a crowd of 410.

Jorge, who joined Grouville FC from the Portuguese Club of Jersey in the summer, has been hugely influential in the team’s superb start to the campaign.

The big news elsewhere was unbeaten leaders Ealing losing 22-20 to their bogey team Barking, who matched them three - three on tries - one of the scores by Andrew Henderson - and registered a narrow success. Ealing have apparently never won at Barking, although they are still well clear on 43 points. The table is more congested from 2nd spot, held by Fylde (36 points) after a 39-24 win at Macclesfield. Cambridge also have 36 points after beating Blackheath 42-27, while Coventry are fourth (34 points) after holding off a late Rosslyn Park fightback to win 30-29. Then it’s Blackheath (31), Rosslyn Park (30) and Tynedale (29), who leap-frogged Jersey thanks to an eight-try drubbing of Birmingham Bees. Macclesfield in eighth also have 29 points, while Jersey are ninth with 28.

Martyn Noel, Caretaker Manager of Grouville FC, said: “This is a great initiative and has certainly got the players talking. Jorge has been an excellent addition to the team and commands the centre of midfield very well, always working hard to gain possession of the ball and playing simple, effective passes when he gets it. His attitude and all-round demeanour, both at training and in matches, means he is a worthy winner of our September Player of the Month award.” Phil Wood, owner of Bento Restaurant, added: “Bento is pleased to support Grouville FC and we look forward to welcoming Jorge to the restaurant to sample our sushi dishes and hot Japanese classics.”

NEWCASTLE v EVERTON Saturday 12:45

MAN UTD v SUNDERLAND Saturday 15:00

Newcastle United host Everton on Saturday knowing another victory could see them mount a serious challenge for Champions League football next season. Everton have only beaten Newcastle twice in their last six meetings. However, the Toffees did win last season’s head-to-head at Tyneside, and, if they’re to keep their own European dreams alive, they’ll be gunning for another upset.

It’s the first return trip for Manchester United old boys John O’Shea and Wes Brown, but while they’ll be looking to show Sir Alex what he’s missing, Sunderland, in current form, will have a big job overturning the current champions at Old Trafford. United are still reeling from a home hammering by local rivals City, and they won’t be about to let another three points slip away.

ARSENAL v WEST BROM Saturday 15:00

QPR v MAN CITY Saturday 17:30

Arsenal have conceded more goals than they have scored this season, but they will still be heavily backed to put another several past West Brom. The Baggies, however, are still buzzing from an excellent run of results including a draw at Sunderland and wins over Wolves and Aston Villa, and if Arsenal continue to struggle defensively, West Brom have the players to punish them.

QPR will certainly be up for this one, following an historic recent derby win over London rivals Chelsea. Table-toppers City, though, are yet to be beaten this season, and their blinding form has proven a tough match for any team at top level. It’s nearly ten years since these teams last met in any competition, but City have also got the better record, and they won their last encounter 3-0 at Loftus Road.

ASTON VILLA v NORWICH Saturday 15:00

WOLVES v WIGAN Sunday 13:30

Norwich haven’t won a match at Villa Park since 1992, and they’ve beaten Aston Villa just once in their last seven meetings. Still, they’ve been somewhat underestimated in this league. That hasn’t done them badly so far this season, and with Villa still reeling from some pretty heavy defeats of late, the Canaries will be looking to preserve their good form.

Wigan won both legs against Wolves last season, and when the teams meet at Molineux this time round the result could prove crucial to either team’s Premier League survival. Unless results improve both North West sides could again be facing relegation at the end of the season, but you might be tempted to bet on another away win this time round: Wolves haven’t beaten Wigan on home turf since October 1988.

BLACKBURN v CHELSEA Saturday 15:00

BOLTON v STOKE Sunday 15:00

It’s probably not the fixture Blackburn fans are ready to face right now, but they’ll be boosted no end by Rovers’ recent Carling Cup triumph: a 4-3 extra time win over an in-form Newcastle, which puts them in the quarter-finals. Still, they’ve had an underwhelming Premier League campaign so far and while they may be out with a renewed confidence at home, the three points are crucial here for Chelsea who could soon fall out of a Champions League spot. LIVERPOOL v SWANSEA Saturday 15:00 With an improved squad this season, Liverpool are out to prove a point. To do so, they’ll absolutely need to out-point Swansea at home, and a win will bring them closer to Champions League football. Swansea are yet to win away from home this season, and a clash at Anfield could prove a tall order for the Premier League newcomers: the last time the Welsh side won a match at Liverpool’s home ground was an FA Cup tie in February 1964.

104

One of the Premier League’s best managers last season has so far endured a torrid start to the 2010/11 campaign. Owen Coyle continues the battle to bring Bolton Wanderers up from relegation dogfights and into a safer mid-table spot, but in facing a confident Stoke City, who make their first appearance in the Europa League this season, The Trotters have an uphill battle to grab all three points in this crucial Premier League encounter. It’ll be an interesting re-run of last season’s FA Cup semi-final, but Coyle certainly can’t afford to let five goals slip this time round. FULHAM v TOTTENHAM Sunday 16:00 We’ve had a succession of London derbies lately, and you’d expect another exciting tie on Sunday when Fulham boss Martin Jol welcomes his old team to Craven Cottage. Fulham supporters will be hoping that Jol can engineer the downfall of a Spurs side who have been playing some top-notch football in recent weeks, and the Dutchman will, of course, be keen to get one over on his successor Harry Redknapp. It’s certainly possible: Fulham’s most recent result over Tottenham was a 4-0 FA Cup thrashing in January.

Samantha Godel Leading Jersey Gymnast Retires. When Jersey Weekly learned that Samantha Godel was to retire from gymnastics, after a career with Jersey Special Gymnastics Club that spanned thirteen years and earned her an amazing haul of Gold medals, trophies and accolades, we thought we’d put something together to honour her competitive career; Once we began asking people who knew her for some information, we realised that the career is perhaps secondary to the determination, drive, perseverance and not least the lovely nature of the young lady herself. She has served, and will continue - through coaching routines and displays after her retirement - as an ambassador for Jersey in places as far apart as China, Rome and the UK. We’re very proud to call her; ‘Jersey’s own Samantha Godel - Champion Gymnast.’

From her coach, John Grady;

Samantha began gymnastics at seven years old. She instantly showed great enthusiasm, and a natural ability coupled with a determination that coaches were quick to recognise. Sam had found her niche in Gym club and went on to brush-off bumps and master difficult techniques through sheer hard work.

“Her first competition was in 1998 when we took the juniors for a competition in Jersey, she won a gold medal. Anne Scott-Warren was her coach at the time and they quickly formed a very good rapport. The following year it was back to Guernsey and two more gold medals. This was followed shortly with her first steps into the big time and a British Gymnastics National Competition. Fifth place and you would have thought the end of the world had come, Sam was so upset, loads of tears. She just had to win everything.

Sam has a perfectionist nature, accordingly the BBC noted in 2007 - when she was presented The Jersey Sports Association for the Disabled (JSAD) ‘Special Merit Award’ - “losing was never on her agenda”. Her gold medal collection alone proves them right. Jersey Weekly counted 50 - yes, five-zero, when looking at her career history. This is only the Golds, and doesn’t take into account the distinctions and other awards she has earned throughout the thirteen years she has spent with the club. This is an enormous achievement, and is made all the more so when her peers and coaches tell how she overcame her shyness and beat top level competitors from all over the world - always with a kind spirit and the desire to simply do the best she could. We spoke to her coach, Yana Vibert and some of her fellow gymnasts, and were even lucky enough to get some words from Samantha herself. They all tell the same story - of a young lady with a heart as big as Jersey.

“I have known Samantha since she started her gymnastics career. She was a pupil at Mont a l’Abbe School, I was the Head-teacher. Samantha joined the after school gym club the school was running. She was just 7 years old, very petite and just dying to be the best. Sam had a natural talent for music and movement and she really enjoyed the floor work.

Over the years nothing has changed the determination to do her very best has never left her but she has come to terms with the fact that you cannot always be the winner. On the few times she has had to, she has accepted defeat with good grace. For Sam, there must be many highlights. There have been many medals, awards and accolades on the way. At the Special Olympics National Games in Cardiff in 2001, as a very nervous 10 year old, she was selected to perform her floor routine in front of hundreds of people, amazing composure from someone so young. 2006 saw Sam win all 5 gold medals at the Special Olympic European Youth Games in Italy. 2007, it was Shanghais and the World Games; 2 silvers and 2 bronze medals. Perhaps Sam saved her best to the last when this summer in Athens she won all five gold medals at the Special Olympic World Games and she could not stop crying again!

Her coach over the last four years, Yana Vibert, has definitely brought the best out in Samantha and they have a great working relationship. Yana has introduced Sam to the world of coaching and she is doing extremely well. I think she will be a valuable asset to the coaching Team. Samantha has been a brilliant member of the club. She has a natural ability and she has made the most of that ability. A delight to work with and it is sad that her back has become so troublesome. A wise decision to retire but it will be hard to find the next ‘Samantha’, maybe she will do that herself whilst she is coaching.”

Sam herself gave us a list - ‘in her own words’, of; ‘The Reasons why I have enjoyed coming to Gym Club’; 1. 2. 3.

4. 5. 6.

Well done Samantha, an outstanding contribution to Special Gymnastics, 1998 to 2011! John Grady Head Coach Jersey Special Gymnastics Club From her coach, Yana Vibert; “I have been Samantha’s coach now for over 5 years, and have to say that I could not have asked for a more dedicated gymnast. Samantha has always given 100% in all her training and competitions. She has been a pleasure to coach.

7. 8. 9. 10. 11.

Meeting new People. Making new friends. Enjoying the culture and competitions in the many places that I have travelled to compete - (China, Athens, Rome, Glasgow, Spain, Gran Canaria are just a few). Making up my own floor routines. The fact that, once I retire I will be looking forward to coaching routines for displays and competition. Meeting Celebrity Gymnasts like Beth Tweddle and Becky Wing. Winning lots of medals and trophies. Being British Champion in 2009 and Special Olympics World Champion in Athens 2011. I got to know Yana and Mr Grady - the best coaches I have ever had. Gymnastics is my favourite sport - I love it. My Grandma used to do gymnastics, and I want to be like her, and make her proud.

We humbly suggest, Samantha, that many people are proud of you and we wish every success in your coaching and life. Jersey Weekly is honoured to feature you.

When I first met Samantha, she was a very shy, quiet, serious fifteen year old who was very nervous of learning any new skills. We used to have many tears when skills were not learnt quickly. Now, five years later Samantha has turned into a real young lady. She has a great out going personality, and is no longer quiet. She has found her voice and we have many laughs and happy moments in the gym. Although still nervous of new skills she will give everything a go, and persevere until she succeeds. What more could a coach ask for? Samantha is now doing some coaching, and she has brought her perfectionist outlook with her and is great at correcting and encouraging our younger gymnasts to achieve their best and do things right. It’s likely that one day in the future one of Samantha’s gymnasts will enjoy the success that she herself has achieved.” -

Samantha Godel (Middle) with team mates showing off their medals.

Her club gave us this statement;

“All of Samantha’s gym friends think she is really great. They have a great relationship in the gym having a laugh but also doing lots of work. Sam inspires everyone by training hard. When they go on gym trips away, they all enjoy dancing and chatting and playing Uno together.”

WHAT’S THE BACKGROUND? The Jersey Archery Society was founded in October 1955, which makes it the Island’s oldest archery club. “Many Island venues have hosted the club’s activities at one time or another, including the Jersey War Tunnels!” says Liz. As a result, the club has seen great evolution of bow types and styles, and the standards achieved are increasing every year.

WHAT’S THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE CALENDAR? “Our biggest tournament is the Jersey Triple, which is three days of shooting and three different competitions. The first shoot is five dozen arrows shot over 20 yards indoors; the second day is 12 dozen arrows shot over four different distances; and the third day is an energetic shoot in the woodland near Crabbé which involves shooting at pictures of animals,’ says Liz.

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

VITAL STATS Club: Jersey Archery Society Founded: October 1955 Members: Around 40 Cost of membership: £100 a year for adults, £30 for juniors under 18. Adults fees are reduced and junior fee is waived for the first year if you complete a six week beginners course, which costs £40. Other costs: Club equipment is free to use. Winter target fees are £2 per session for adults, £1 per session for children. Fact: If you manage to shoot an arrow so that it splits one already in the target it’s called doing a ‘Robin Hood’. A lot of archery terminology comes from medieval times. Contact: Steve Jacobs (club secretary) 727986 or Liz Pomroy (treasurer) 855479 Find out more: www.jerseyarcherysociety.co.uk

WHAT’S THE ATTRACTION? “Archery is a sport that can be enjoyed by all ages and abilities and can be taken to whatever level an archer desires,” says club treasurer Liz Pomroy. “I think it must be the only sport where a chair is often the first bit of equipment that is put out on the range before anything else!” she says. The best archers, says Liz, are the ones who are able to shut out outside distractions, although it’s quick and easy to pick up. “You soon learn how to clear your mind and focus fully on the next shot. It can actually be very calming, which is very beneficial in this busy world of ours. It is only a team sport when you want it to be,” she says.

WHO’S INVOLVED? “Our members ages span from nine-year-olds to pensioners and come from all walks of life,” says Liz. Archery is also one of just a handful of sports where disabled archers are able to compete on level terms with able-bodied archers, so it’s a great inclusive sport. “It’s a sport which ideally suits individuals who may not class themselves as being typically sporty,” says Liz. In 2010 the club formed a specific junior section, which has allowed them to reduce the junior membership fee. “The juniors shoot at any of the club sessions they like but they have enjoyed meeting up with their friends at our after school sessions held each Wednesday in the summer,” says Liz.

108

WHAT CHALLENGES DO THE CLUB FACE? “Jersey is going to host the 2015 NatWest Island Games and our biggest challenge is to find new talent so that Jersey can be represented by a full archery team. This is something that hasn’t happened since 2003,” says Liz. “Like other sports we are finding it hard to get funding, which could help us to make real changes to the way we go about developing talent,” she says.

WHAT’S THE FUTURE? “We have plans to build a clubhouse at our archery range at Crabbé, and, if granted, it will provide a focal point for all our activities. Even if the weather is unsuitable for shooting there would be the opportunity to hold workshops on bow set-up, fletching and repairing arrows. Archers and youngsters in particular would benefit from being able to see play-back of their shots. It’s not easy to imagine what your shot looks like, and it’s very easy to think you are doing it beautifully!” says Liz.

WHAT MAKES THE BLUB SO SPECIAL? “The members are special and we all pull together, because we share the same goals,” says Liz. “Everyone can decide whether they are happy to shoot socially or whether they want to compete to the highest level they are able. As we have such a wide age range, there is so much expertise available,” she says.

HOW DO YOU GET INVOLVED? The best way to get involved is to sign up to one of the club’s beginner courses, the next of which will be held in the new year. “We find it works well to start new archers indoors as there’s no problem with the weather and we can guarantee the session will go ahead. That doesn’t mean that you can’t join at other times of the year, just that joining in the summer takes a bit more organising,” says Liz. If you’re interested, you can contact Liz or Steve Jacobs for more information. “It’s a lovely sport and you’ll soon be hooked!” says Liz.

Clear investment. Pure energy.

Domestic fuel bills. How heated do you get? 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 two-and-a-half years of stable prices. Affordable, secure and sustainable electricity.

Isn’t it time you made the switch?
