St Saviour on Parade

It was with great pride, and a good deal of hopping up and down and waving, that Elaine and I saw the two St Saviour's floats lead the Christmas Parade along the Esplanade with Roger Quenault making a particularly magnificent bearded gnome on his equally magnificent tractor...but whether our float was chosen because of the magnificence of Roger or his tractor, we'll never know! We were amazed by the transformation of the Battle of Flowers' Junior float Punch and Judy beach scene into Santa's Grotto, with Santa himself throwing sweets to the children and a host of attendant elves, including Ann Quenault.
It was then that, with some awe, we watched the Parish float, Curtain Call, worthy winner of the Prix d'Excellence, reach new heights in its presentation after many hours of hard work by the St Saviour's Battle of Flowers committee and members. We were so proud of our parish and the community spirit that went into this really amazing spectacle. The lights and the dark skies suited the theme and it really did seem to "float" as it passed by as if carried on a pool of green light. Our dancers and lady attendants gave a wonderful performance while handing out sweeties to the youngsters...and a few oldsters like us as well.


Miss St Saviour looked stunning in her place of honour on the float.

Connetable Hanning.

I am horrified that you are a Blogger and you are attempting to gag Bloggers.Your objection to a review board hearing being filmed by a Blogger when the witnesses consented to it being filmed is even more disgraceful knowing you, yourself are a Blogger!!

What a disgrace.

I was very sad to see the tragic accident caused by the drunken driver after the Miss St Saviour. My prayers go out to those injured by this act.

I've put a note on my blog about the dangers of drunken driving. People forget and become blasé about it; this tragic accident highlights the need to remind people of the dangers.

Thank you Tony for your kind thoughts and concern for the unfortunate young women caught up in this dreadful accident. Our parish and everyone who was at the Miss St Saviour competition has been horrified at the terrible ending to a very successful evening. I am sure it is a help to all those involved, and their families, to know that Islanders are thinking of them at this very difficult time.

After reading your letter in the JEP I would have thought you would welcome Citizens Media. Or are you still trying to oppress it? Although you yourself are a Citizens Journalist.

If you are not happy with what the JEP has written, wht not do a Blog about it?

I was interested to see your letter in the JEP about the positive aspects of the Visite Royale, although it appears to me to be remarkable if possible flood damage concerns have to wait 6 years before being addressed. Surely as Constable, this would be a problem which should come under your remit, either as father of the Parish, or States Member?
