Welcome

Welcome to the first issue of our Corporate Partnership Newsletter. Here at The National Trust for Jersey we recognise the immense value and importance of working with the Corporate Community, and we would like to help you play an active and engaging role within our Island, by helping us to protect the very environment, which supports and sustains your business. The Trust’s vision is to permanently protect Jersey’s natural beauty, rich wildlife and historic places for everyone to enjoy and experience. We aim to achieve this through vigilance, sustainable management and by promoting and increasing awareness of the value of the countryside and historic environment to our economy and overall wellbeing.

If your Corporate and Social Responsibly (CSR) strategy is focused towards the Environment, Education and or the Local Community, I am certain that you will find one or two projects,

within the following pages, that will help you to meet and deliver your objectives. If not, then we would be delighted to find out more about your CSR requirements, so that we can explore alternative opportunities, for developing a long-lasting and mutually beneficial relationship. If on the other hand, employee involvement is central to your CSR programme, then the Trust can also offer activities, that allow your staff and teams to volunteer and get involved in our day to day work, either on a one off project basis or more regularly. By working with us your company is helping to keep our Island special forever and for everyone. I hope you will agree that there can be no better reason for becoming a Corporate Partner of the National Trust for Jersey.

NEW WOODLAND PROJECT WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP The Trust is fortunate to care for several areas of woodland including sites in Fern Valley, St Peter’s Valley, Le Mourier Valley, Vallée des Vaux and Hamptonne Woods. However, compared to the UK & Europe, woodland cover is greatly under-represented on the Island. With this in mind, the Trust has been actively seeking partnerships with local businesses to support our vision to increase the area of woodland habitat in Jersey.

WHY A NEW WOODLAND PROJECT IS IMPORTANT Woodland habitats (which also include hedges and orchards) encourage wildlife and increase biodiversity. Woodlands are essential for many species of wildflowers, invertebrates, mammals, birds and fungi. Trees help to combat climate change by absorbing CO2 from the atmosphere. Woodlands protect against soil erosion (run-off of manure and fertiliser into streams and reservoirs).

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS FOR YOU AND YOUR STAFF? Opportunities for staff to engage with the Trust’s Rangers doing practical conservation work and team building activities. Potential to generate a high level of publicity. Potential for an adopt a tree scheme.

HEDGE FUNDS WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP During the 1980’s the Island’s hedges were decimated due to the outbreak of Dutch Elm disease, which changed the Island’s landscape forever. Too often, hedges are not well maintained and often are not replaced when they die or are blown over. The decline of our hedgerows, combined with the increase in the number of vehicles on our roads, has led to difficulties for many species who rely on a network of hedges to move safely around the countryside. The Trust is keen to plant more hedges in Jersey in order to help wildlife such as hedgehogs, squirrels, reptiles, amphibians, small mammals, birds and insects to connect with different habitats and other populations in Jersey.

WHY HEDGEROWS ARE IMPORTANT Hedgerows are essential for species connectivity. Hedgerows provide food, shelter and nesting sites for native and migratory birds. Hedgerows help to combat climate change by absorbing CO2 from the atmosphere. Hedgerows protect against soil erosion (run-off of manure and fertiliser into streams and reservoirs) and protect crops from extreme weather and disease.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS FOR YOU AND YOUR STAFF? Opportunities for staff to engage with the Trust’s Rangers doing practical conservation work and team building activities. Potential to generate a high level of publicity. Potential for an adopt a hedge scheme.

WILDFLOWER MEADOWS FOR WILDLIFE WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP Stand in a wildflower meadow in midsummer and the hum of life that surrounds you is truly astounding. Speciesrich meadows filled with colourful wildflowers, and the associated biodiversity that they support, were once a widespread and ubiquitous part of our landscape. Sadly today’s landscape is largely devoid of these biodiversity treasure-troves, with 97 per cent of Britain’s wildflower meadows having disappeared since World War II. In order to address this biodiversity loss, we need to protect the meadows that remain and create as many new meadows as possible across the landscape.

WHY ARE WILDFLOWER MEADOWS IMPORTANT? Species-rich meadows support an incredible diversity of associated wildlife including fungi, butterflies, bees, spiders, small mammals and birds. Many of the creatures associated with wildflower meadows provide us with essential ecosystem services. Wildflower meadows provide environmental benefits including carbon storage and water retention which helps to prevent flooding. Meadows are an intrinsic part of our cultural heritage, inspiring artists and writers.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS FOR YOU AND YOUR STAFF? Opportunities for staff to work with the Trust to return wildflower meadows to Jersey’s landscape. Potential to generate a high level of publicity. Potential for an 'adopt a meadow' scheme.

Back in 2016, the Trust took the decision to transform the formal, regularly mown lawn in front of the main house at The Elms into a native wildflower meadow. Just two years on, the meadow has already become a biodiversity treasure trove. The Trust is hopeful that the new meadow will inspire the creation of further wildflower meadows on suitable sites across the Island. ENVIRONMENT

ANNUAL WALKING PROGRAMME WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP The Trust is responsible for 170 sites, 19,000 metres of footpaths and 30 historic buildings and has a wide range of supporters with specialist skills and know-how in fields such as botany, marine biology, ornithology and local history. The Trust would like to offer a regular programme of guided walks to some of these sites and offer ‘behind the scenes’ opportunities at specific locations, such as Sites of Special Interest and historic buildings.

WHY WALKING IS IMPORTANT Walking is proven to aid general health and well-being. It is the best way of seeing the Island, its nature and wildlife. Guided walks are a great way of learning more about the Island, its history, heritage, geography and wildlife. The walking programme will enable local residents and visitors to access sites and locations not normally open to members of the public.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS FOR YOU AND YOUR STAFF? Opportunity for staff to support the Trust and to attend some of the regular walks for free. Marketing and promotional opportunities. The walking programme would be promoted on various websites, such as Visit Jersey, Vibrant Jersey and the National Trust’s website, on social media sites and through the local media on a regular basis. Brand association with the Trust and its environmental credentials.

JANUARY 2018

GROWING MIGHTY OAKS FROM LITTLE ACORNS A PARTNERSHIP WITH HSBC At the start of the year, HSBC generously donated £10,000 in order to create a new deciduous woodland at Le Don de Carteret by Mont Fallu in St Peter’s Valley. A team of enthusiastic volunteers from HSBC came along to assist the Trust’s Lands Team with the planting of the saplings and returned to the site in the summer to help with watering and mulching. ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS:

• It is hoped that this small mixed woodland, which includes trees of all different heights – such as Sweet Chestnut, Oak, Hazel, Silver Birch and Hornbeam - will boost biodiversity and in time provide nesting sites for foraging birds, invertebrates and small mammals. If you are interested in helping out with a similar woodland scheme, please see page 4.

MAY 2018

LOVE NATURE FESTIVAL A PARTNERSHIP WITH JERSEY ELECTRICITY Over 500 people came along to support the Trust’s second environmental festival in May, kindly supported by Jersey Electricity. The idea behind the festival was to showcase the Trust’s sites that fall within the Coastal National Park, including The White House, The Wetland Centre, St Ouen’s Pond and the orchid field known as Le Noir Pré. Highlights of the festival included a series of ‘behind the scenes’ walks with the Trust’s Rangers, nature trails, coastal foraging, bird tours, pond-dipping sessions, forest bathing and a bat walk at sunset.

The work the Trust does – and with such a small team - to preserve Jersey’s natural environment is immense and the Company, our staff and customers are pleased to have been able to support the Trust in many important initiatives which are in line with our own environmental and sustainability ethos as suppliers of clean energy that in itself does much to help the environment." - Jersey Electricity CEO Chris Ambler

A PARTNERSHIP WITH THE CO-OP ECO FUND

A PARTNERSHIP WITH INTERTRUST

GIVING NATURE A HOME Earlier in the year, the Trust received £2,000 from the Co-op Eco Fund towards the purchase of 1,800 ‘hedge’ saplings. Thirty eager volunteers turned up to help out with the planting of the saplings, which took place over a bitterly cold weekend in February. To date, Birds on the Edge has planted 1.4 km of hedgerows across the Island. ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS:

• Once established, the hedges will provide important winter shelter for native and migratory birds, secure nesting sites for a wide variety of wildlife and vital food sources for birds, insects, lizards and small mammals. If your company is interested in Giving Nature a Home, please see page 6.

WALKING THROUGH AUTUMN As part of its ever expanding annual events programme, The National Trust for Jersey staged its first ever walking festival in September, offering participants a rare opportunity to stop off at some of the special places in the Trust’s care, including Morel Farm, The Elms, Le Moulin de Quétivel, Victoria Tower and the Foot Buildings. Conservation enthusiasts enjoyed a rare visit to Grouville Marsh, accompanied by the Trust’s Lands Manager, a botany walk across the newly refurbished headland at Plémont and a bat walk around The Wetland Centre in St Ouen’s Bay. Activities for children included a tour around Hamptonne Woods with the Trust’s Education Officer, with a stop off at the new willow toad where children learnt about the lifecycle of toads.

We carefully consider all of our sponsorships each year and our people are keen to support worthwhile causes that contribute to the community and the development of Jersey as a whole. We feel that The National Trust for Jersey meets these criteria and have always been strong supporters of their efforts." - Intertrust

EDUCATION


SC H OOL POND REF URBISH ME N T S CHEME

SCHOOL POND REFURBISHMENT SCHEME WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP In 2012/13, the Trust launched the ‘Hop To It!’ project to create pond areas in all primary schools. Five years on, some of the Island’s school ponds have fallen into disrepair. Many schools have contacted the Trust for advice on how to maintain their ponds, but to date we have only been able to offer limited support. Going forward, the Trust is keen to instruct a local contractor to carry out regular maintenance of all of the Island’s school ponds so that children can once again use and enjoy these facilities.

WHY SCHOOL PONDS ARE IMPORTANT Pond habitats encourage wildlife: they host a large number of invertebrates; they provide a breeding ground for amphibians; and they provide food and drinking water for small mammals and birds. The unusual animals living in and around a pond make for invaluable science study relating to life cycles, habitats and more. A pond ‘network’ throughout the Island supports protected wildlife such as toads and newts.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS FOR YOU AND YOUR STAFF? Opportunity for your staff to engage with the Trust and local schools doing practical conservation work. Opportunity for an ‘adopt a pond scheme’. Potential to generate publicity.

Education Programmes In Action HSBC EDUCATION PROGRAMME The average amount of time children spend outdoors today is alarmingly low - only minutes per day - while screen time is at an all-time high. With this in mind, The National Trust for Jersey has set a new goal to stem the tide and move children back outdoors. The National Trust for Jersey’s extensive and exciting education programme, kindly supported by HSBC, aims to engage families and schools with the local environment. Through a range of activities including Rock Pool Rambles, Bug Safaris and Woodland Wanders, families are invited to discover and learn about the unique flora and fauna that inhabit our Island. •

16

The Trust’s Education Officers delivered 82 school sessions and 48 individual events for local families in 2018, attracting over 4,000 children. Looking to the future, with the financial support of HSBC and its staff volunteering programmes, the Trust is hopeful that by educating the younger community we will inspire future generations to respect and preserve the wonderful environment in which we live.

EDUCATION

Here are some of the activities that our Education Officers have delivered in 2018. TOTS’ TALES Tot's Tales offer young children an opportunity to visit some of the Trust’s special places and learn about the Island’s native species. SHARK EGG HUNT There was no chocolate on offer at the Trust’s Easter Egg Hunt! Instead families gathered on St Ouen’s Bay for an alternative Easter activity - a Shark Egg Hunt. Working alongside knowledgeable guides, adults and children searched the high-tide line for shark and ray egg cases, which were counted and identified as part of a marine conservation survey.

ROCK POOL RAMBLES & BUG SAFARIS During the summer term, more than 250 children attended Bug Safaris with their schools and over 600 children took part in our Rock Pool Ramble sessions for schools. The Trust's summer holiday activities, which take place at different sites across the Island, are always popular with families and this summer was no exception with 180 children attending fully-booked Rock Pool Ramble sessions and 90 children attending Bug Safaris with their families. WILD AFTER SCHOOL This autumn, the Trust launched a brand new nature-based after-school club, focussing on connecting children with the natural environment. It is hoped that the club will help and inspire children and staff to make improvements to their school environment that not only benefit local wildlife but also provide an added resource for pupils to enjoy.

HOP TO IT! Nearly 500 children dipped into ponds with the Trust’s Education Officer in April to learn how to identify the strange creatures that lurk beneath the surface and find out about the environmental benefits of fresh water habitats. BIG WILD SLEEP-OUT In August more than 30 children and their families pitched their tents in the orchard at the Elms for the Trust’s Big Wild Sleep Out. As the sun went down, children learnt how to make a camp fire before setting off on a moonlit walk to forage for blackberries and edible plants – and finally make a dream-catcher to take back to their tents.

AFTER DARK During October half-term, the Trust launched an after-dark session in St Peter’s Valley, offering children the opportunity to experience the sights and sounds of the woods at night-time. With a focus on the woods’ inhabitants such as bats, squirrels and owls, children learnt about the importance of woodland habitats while enjoying the thrill of walking through the woods by torchlight.

OGIER SCHOOLS PROGRAMME Thanks to the generous support of Ogier, the Trust has been able to extend its programme of educational activities to include two week-long programmes for primary schools at its historic visitor sites: Le Moulin de Quétivel and 16 New Street. The programmes were delivered by the Trust’s House and Collections Manager, who carefully linked the activities with the curriculum to ensure that as many schools as possible would take part: ‘Historic buildings provide firsthand experiences that cannot be recreated in the classroom – an opportunity for pupils to engage with real objects, real stories, real people and real environments.' A MILLER’S LIFE - OCTOBER 2018 Immediately after Le Moulin de Quétivel closed its doors for the season, the Trust invited more than 300 Year 5 school children into its 18th century working watermill in St Peter’s Valley to take part in a brand new programme, A Miller’s Life. Kate Kirk, Head of Marketing at Ogier, described the programme as ‘both fun and educational’. ‘The mixture of lessons in history, science and geography, brought together in such an interactive way, was fascinating and we are delighted that so many children were able to take part.’ A TRADITIONAL CHRISTMAS AT 16 NEW STREET More than 300 Year 2 school children were invited to explore the Trust’s magnificent Georgian townhouse museum this Christmas and take part in a range of immersive activities – from stirring the Christmas pudding and laying the table for a ten-course Christmas feast to learning a traditional dance and taking part in an historical quiz.

16 NEW STREET THEATRE PRODUCTION WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP For the past three years, the Trust has put on a theatre production at 16 New Street to ‘bring the house to life’ and showcase the building to local Islanders. Following the success of their last two productions, the Trust is collaborating with the Butterfly Theatre Company to create a site-specific piece for 2019 that pairs the history of the families who lived at 16 New Street with the stories of Shakespeare. The play will be directed by Aileen Gonsalves, Associate Director of the Royal Shakespeare Company, and written and produced by former Beaulieu student Carla-Marie Metcalfe, who produced Butterfly’s last two shows at 16 New Street: Through our unique and immersive storytelling style, we will pair the stories of Shakespeare with the hidden history of 16 New Street and invite audiences to consider their own family secrets hidden within the rich tapestry of these timeless themes." - Carla-Marie Metcalfe

WHY THE 16 NEW STREET THEATRE PRODUCTION IS IMPORTANT This is a unique opportunity for the Trust to collaborate with a well-respected theatre company to create a site-specific piece based on the history of 16 New Street. Butterfly have performed around the world in unique settings and both of their previous shows at 16 New Street sold out. Walkabout theatre productions have proved to be a successful way of bringing The Georgian House to life. Audiences will be restricted to 30 people per show, so every performance will be intimate and truly unique.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS FOR YOU AND YOUR TEAM? The opportunity to host a gala performance for staff or clients. Identification though brand awareness with the National Trust for Jersey and the Butterfly Theatre Company. The opportunity to place the company logo on all of the publicity material – including banners and flyers.

30 BAYS IN 30 DAYS WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP ’30 Bays in 30 Days’ has been running for three years and challenges local people to explore Jersey’s coastline by swimming in 30 bays throughout the month of July. 30 Bays in 30 Days is a joint initiative with Jersey Hospice Care with proceeds divided between the two charities; the event grows from strength to strength despite limited marketing. The event meets the joint objectives of promoting the Island’s coastline and promoting the health benefits of swimming in the sea and living each day to the full.

WHAT WILL THE PROCEEDS FROM THIS EVENT BE USED FOR? Half of the proceeds from 30 Bays in 30 Days will go towards the Trust’s Coastline Campaign, which was established in 2006 to permanently safeguard the character of Jersey’s coastline forever and for everyone. The Trust has pledged to protect another 1,000 vergées of coastline over the next 20 years, so every penny raised through the 30 Bays in 30 Days initiative is extremely important to us. The other half of the proceeds go towards Jersey Hospice Care. Many people think that hospices are places of sadness. Whereas the focus is on living and living well right up to the end, making memories and spending time with family. 2018/19 is set to be an exciting year for Jersey Hospice Care, as they begin their journey to expand their services to care for children and young people with a life shortening or life threatening condition and also their families.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS FOR YOUR COMPANY? Opportunity for staff involvement – corporate swimming teams. Potential to generate a high level of publicity. Opportunity to place the company logo on wind breaks, parasols, banners, beach bags, etc. A dedicated article acknowledging your support in the National Trust for Jersey’s magazine, which has a distribution in excess of 5,000 copies.

BLACK BUTTER LÉ NIÈR BEURRE WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP Black Butter is a traditional farmhouse delicacy, important not only in gastronomic terms but also as a constituent of the now declining, traditional rural culture of the Island. Traditionally produced during the cider-making season, black butter is made from a blend of apples, sugar, liquorice, cinnamon, mixed spice and lemons, which are stirred in a cauldron (bachin) over a low flame for 24 hours. In an age when there was no television or other entertainment, Black Butter evenings provided a rare opportunity for hardworking farming families to get together and have some fun.

WHY BLACK BUTTER IS IMPORTANT The Trust’s Black Butter event, which takes place over three days in October, keeps this traditional culinary activity alive. Black Butter Making at the Elms is a community event that brings together people of all ages and walks of life. The sale of Black Butter generates income for the Trust. Black Butter or Lé Nièr Beurre is one of 4,893 Ark of Taste products in the global Slow Food movement. The Ark of Taste is Slow Food’s online catalogue of traditional foods that risk extinction in the modern world. This event promotes and protects the Trust’s cider orchards, together with our gene bank of traditional cider varieties.

HERITAGE OPEN DAY WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP Heritage Open Day celebrates our built heritage by allowing visitors free access to fascinating properties that are either not usually open to the public, or would normally charge an entrance fee. In 2018, more than 5,000 historic buildings across the UK were opened to the public in an event that celebrates architecture, history and culture. The National Trust for Jersey has been organising Open Days for many years and this landmark event is now well recognised as one of the Island’s key annual cultural events. On average, the Trust opens 10-15 properties to the public, which attract in excess of 3,000 visitors.

WHY HERITAGE OPEN DAY IS IMPORTANT Heritage Open Day is an opportunity for local residents and visitors to learn, explore and have fun sharing the treasures on our doorstep. Many of the Trust’s properties are tenanted and therefore rarely accessible to the public. Heritage Open Day is a wonderful opportunity for the Trust to open these properties for everyone to visit over a weekend in September. There are always new stories to tell and new places to open. Heritage Open Day is an opportunity for the Trust to showcase the historic buildings in its care and educate the public about the importance of saving historic buildings.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS FOR YOUR COMPANY? Opportunity for staff to engage with the Trust undertaking tasks such as acting as house stewards during the festival. Potential to generate publicity – Heritage Open Day is affiliated to a National event and therefore any sponsor will achieve on- and off-island promotion. Branded advertising materials at each property, plus branded information hand-outs.

AUSTEN UNDONE AT 16 NEW STREET A PARTNERSHIP WITH VECTOR RESOURCING LIMITED Following the success of The Importance of Being Earnest at 16 New Street in 2017, the Trust invited The Natural Theatre Company to Jersey at the end of March to perform their walkabout show, Austen Undone, in and around The Georgian House. Previously showcased at the Jane Austen festival in Bath, the production attracted over 300 visitors, many of whom had never visited the house before. As well as entertaining the audience, Austen Undone provided a fascinating insight into Georgian dress and social history at the turn of the 19th century.

We became aware of the National Trust for Jersey soon after our arrival to the Island at the end of 2017 and quickly became Corporate Partners. We very much share the Trust’s wider interests and aims and were fortunate enough to experience their excellent work first hand when we organised a Candlelit Tour of 16 New Street for our staff. We then heard that they would be bringing Jane Austen to the same venue and wanted to lend our support – many of Vector’s staff share a keen interest in the Performing Arts, so it seemed particularly appropriate to sponsor the live production, which was very entertaining." - Donna Medway, Vector Resourcing

BLACK BUTTER MAKING AT THE ELMS A PARTNERSHIP WITH JP RESTAURANTS Hundreds of local residents and visitors came along to help out with the Trust’s annual Black Butter Making event at The Elms to peel apples, stir the black butter mixture over the fire and assist with the jarring up of this traditional conserve that is made from cider apples picked from the Trust’s orchards. This year 380lb of the dark and fragrant Black Butter, often referred to as ‘Christmas in a jar’ was produced (90lb of which was sold to JP Restaurants to go into a delicious cheesecake which will appear on their menus in the run up to Christmas).

Black Butter Making is a wonderful annual event that celebrates our community spirit and at the same time adapts a centuries old tradition to the modern age. In many ways, the event is like the National Trust for Jersey itself - preserving the best of our past to enhance and bring pleasure to our frenetic, present-day lives." - Dominic Jones, JP Restaurants

Up to 1,000 local Islanders are expected to visit Father Christmas this December to hear tales from the North Pole - and if they have been good, children can also expect to receive a gift.

Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management is delighted to support the Trust for the third year. Sponsoring Father Christmas at 16 New Street offers our staff and the wider Jersey community an opportunity to bring their families to meet a traditional Father Christmas in an historic property where visitors cannot help but feel that they have stepped back in time.
