Sunday's Fast Ferry Sailings Cancelled
So soon after Condor's new boat came into service the vessel's sailings have had to be cancelled due to a… poor forecast. The ferry firm has cancelled tomorrow's (Sunday 29th) high speed ferry sailings between the UK and the Channel Islands, as wave heights are predicted to reach 4.5 metres. The 50 million pound ship can currently sail in waters with wave heights of up to 3.5 metres, although that may change once the Liberation has undergone more sea trials. Passengers have been informed and have been offered alternate travel on an extra Clipper sailing, leaving Portsmouth at 9am. The Liberation completed her first passenger sailing yesterday.
Town's One Way System Here For Longer
The one way system along St Peter Port's North Esplanade will remain in place for an extra few days…. Work to resurface the road is taking longer than expected so the one way system from the Crown Pier to the Weighbridge roundabout will be enforced until Wednesday. The Quay is still expected to reopen on Monday, meaning traffic between the Albert Pier and Crown Pier should be able to move in both directions from then.
Treasure Goes on Display at The Museum
Celtic and Roman treasures will be the focus of an exhibition at Guernsey Museum this summer…. The objects - some of which have never been shown to the public before - includes coins, jewellery, statuettes and timbers from the ship, Asterix. The exhibitions opens to the public today and will run until October 4th.
10 Children Won't Get 1st Choice School
Ten children won't be going to their first choice primary school in September…. They have been allocated alternative schools by the Education Department because Castel Primary was still oversubscribed even after parents were asked to choose other schools. Two schools were oversubscribed initially - but children wanting to go to Notre Dame du Rosaire who live in the north of the island have been given places at St Mary and St Michael instead. But, Castel Primary remained oversubscribed, even though parents were asked if they would like to send their children elsewhere, so the Education Department says it had to allocate alternative schools to ten children, even though they live within the Castel catchment and applied by the deadline. The department says all schools provide an excellent education, but it acknowledges some parents will be disappointed with the news. Education also says there are still more than 40 spare places in Reception classes across all schools.
Last Island Plan Drop In Session
More than one hundred people have already made their feelings clear on Guernsey's Draft Island Plan…. It could end up being the blueprint for all future development across the island. Today will see the last public drop in session on it. It's at Le Friquet Garden Centre until midday.
Condor's New Ship Helps Raise £12,000
Curious ferry fans have raised £12,000 pounds for the Channel Islands' Cheshire Homes…. Thousands of people paid two pounds each for a tour of Condor's new ship, the Liberation, last weekend. The money is being split between the Cheshire Home in Guernsey and in Jersey.
