ACTION PLAN TO ATTRACT MORE TOURISTS TO GUERNSEY

St Peter Port, capital of Guernsey

Guernsey’s government has set out a number of action points it wants to work on to encourage more visitors to the island, the www.itv.com website reports.

It aims to create new ‘sustainable and competitive routes to the island.’

The States plans to attract more airlines to officer flights to and from the island. It also wants to improve connections to the north of England, Scotland and Ireland.

And it’s setting out to tackle a need for direct flights to areas of Europe, such as Germany, where a large proportion of tourists come from.

It will also look to challenge a reputation Guernsey has for being an expensive destination to visit.

Key action points:

Evaluate new and stronger routes to the island.

Encourage competitive fares for routes into the island.

Look at ways to maximise potential for new Aurigny jet.

Question runway length to attract larger jets.

There’s overwhelming support for shops to open on a Sunday in the Channel Island of Guernsey, the www.itv.com website reported.

The results of a Guernsey government survey have been released showing 64% of the public want Sunday trading to be introduced.

21% think laws should also be relaxed at certain times of the year, like Christmas and during the summer.

39% said they would ‘very likely’ do more shopping on Sundays if more shops were open.

The results show there’s support from retailers too with more than half (53%) saying they would like to open their doors on a Sunday.

Also, the vast majority of residents wanted a better range of shops to be allowed to trade on a Sunday when cruise liners are visiting.

And 93% believe any new Sunday trading laws should apply to all parishes, not just St Peter Port, the island’s capital.

The boat operator Bumblebee is hoping to rally support for a new ferry service from Alderney to Guernsey, Jersey and France, www.itv.com reported.

Alderney

The firm has been putting posters up in the capital St Anne ahead of a public Meeting where they’ll detail plans to islanders.

The company believes they could bring 7,000 visitors to Alderney in the first year alone.

“Transport links have been the subject of debate in Alderney all year. Here is a serious proposal by people who know the island and the business. It will put Alderney on the tourist map, has the capacity to transform the island?s economy and will generate renewed investment in the island. We hope as many people as possible will come along to our meeting to listen and ask questions”, says Chris Meinke, Bumblebee’s marketing director.

RENOVERER POPULÆRT MØTESTED PÅ GUERNSEY

En tidligere og svært populær møteplass for folk på kanaløya Guernsey blir nå renovert og skal dekoreres med markblomster fra Flandern i Belgia for å markere at det er 100 år siden 1.verdenskrig startet, skriver BBC. 

Loafers Wall, som stedet i hovedstaden St Peter heter, ble bygget i 1914 som en del av utbyggingen av Fountain Street i sentrum av byen.

Originale gatelykter skal erstatte de eksisterende og noen nye skal settes opp. 

En seremoni 10.mai skal markere gjenåpningen av Loafers Wall. 

John Silvester i Town Centre Partnership, sier at veggen ble bygget like før 1.verdenskrig startet, og at stedet fikk stort symbolsk betydning for øyas innbyggere.

Lokalhistorikeren Ron Le Cass minnes veggen i tidligere tider.

-Da jeg var ungdom og kom inn til bysentrum var det alltid mye folk der, man stod langs veggen og kikket på folkelivet, sier Le Cass.

Mye biltrafikk i området gjør at miljøet der nå er et helt annet enn det var på 1960- og 1970-tallet.

-Hundrevis av folk passerer veggen og området hver dag, uten å vite, eller tenke over stedets historie, sier Ron Le Cass. 

Guernsey er et selvstyrt territorium under den britiske kronen, men er formelt ikke en del av Storbritania.
