Spring is here ...Parish springing into action

Signs of spring in St Saviour can be found in the crocuses, daffodils, cyclamen and other plants flowering in our hedgerows and parish gardens. I know that Graham Langlois and the parish team have been out there tucking bulbs into little corners and hideaways and now we can enjoy the full benefit of them. However, there is another sign of spring.. parish committees are also springing into action with a full calendar of events has been planned throughout the year, so there is no excuse for anyone to say they are bored and, in fact, I have evidence of more people joining our community events and I am delighted that is so. (Details of all the parish associations and societies can be found on our parish page at
Elaine and I went to the Twinning Association agm and lunch last Sunday at the Ommaroo. This is going to be a busy year for us with the Jeux d'Intervilles in July when, for the first and only time in 40 years, St Saviour will host the other parishes and their twins at Grainville. There will be a lot of work to be done but also a lot of fun to be had and plans are well in hand, so I was very pleased to hear that our membership is up by 50 per cent, from 58 to 87 members. A decision will be made this week about the viability of a parish magazine and we will have the results of the naming competition. There has been great enthusiasm for this venture so we are now looking for sponsorship and support in advertising in the new publication. This the the month to also make a decision about entering the Miss St Saviour competition. Our Miss St Saviour is a great ambassador for our parish and it is a role that I hope that the new Miss St Saviour will take on with gusto and that she will play a full part in parish events.
