GUENSEY: We have just returned from a short holiday in Guernsey. What a beautiful island and the weather was great. We stayed in St Martins just outside the capital of St Peters Port and it was easy to get around as they have a very efficient bus service. There are no concessions, only for the islanders, but you could go all round the island for £1 or you can buy a Puffin Pass which allows you to travel for 55p a journey. A bargain and well worth it. We loaded the card up with £15 and it lasted us the five days. The best visit for me was the house of Victor Hugo who was exiled on the Island. He is of course famous for Les Miserables and it is an amazing house of mystery and intrigue. It is only open in the summer months as it is run by students who give very good tours which you need to book in advance as you cannot roam freely around the house, but it has fabulous views from the garden where you can wonder around freely.
CHRIST CHURCH: On Sunday we have our Harvest Festival Service at 10.30am led by Rev John Gordon. Our gifts this year will be going to the Landport Food Bank. Following the service we will be having a church lunch. On Wednesday we have our Think Tank meeting from 7.30pm when Dr Justyna Robinson will be talking about and leading a discussion on What happens to our language as we get older? Today, Friday, our Tots group is meeting. It was lovely to see 26 children there last week with their carers. We still have room for more children so if you are a carer with a pre-school child we would be happy to see you from 9.30am this morning (Friday).
ST MARY’S SUPPORTERS CLUB: Bingo tonight, Friday, at St Mary’s Social Centre with cash prizes and raffle, starting 8.30pm. Everyone welcome.
APPLE PRESSING: Don’t let your apples go to waste. Bring them along tomorrow, Saturday, and Sunday to the terrace behind the Lamb on Fisher Street (parking nearby at the Needlemaker’s car park from 10.30am to 4pm. There will be containers for you to buy, but if you can, bring along some of your own. Donation of 50p a litre. There is nothing like freshly pressed apple juice squeezed from fruit from your own trees.
