Miss St Clement 2016 is Lucie Hosking.
Nineteen year-old Lucie, is a student at Highlands College, where she is studying for a BA in Childhood Studies. She hopes to qualify eventually as a primary school teacher. She is certainly well travelled, having visited Nepal, where she took part in a research project, South America, Africa and Australasia. She describes herself as a very sociable person, keen to listen, meet people and get involved with 'people projects' – all attributes well suited to her duties as Parish ambassador during the next twelve months. Next step - Miss Battle of Flowers.

This year's Miss St Clement is Ebony Troy. 17 year-old Ebony, who rode as the Snow Queen on last year's parish Battle of Flowers float is also well known as a key player in Team Jets netball team. She is currently a student at JCG studying Science, Finance and Psychology. When not studying, she coaches young netball hopefuls. She is already widely travelled and is keen to visit Australia where she feels she could pick up tips on how to further her hoped-for career as a physiotherapist.
Twelve months will pass quickly but, Ebony is looking forward immensely to acting as a parish ambassador during 2015.
The other finalists were Jessica Pinel and Charlotte Volante.

The Honorary Police play a vital role in providing parish-based community policing. Regular duties can include attending and organising parish hall enquiries, mobile patrols around the parish, conducting road, speed and drink driving checks, attending road traffic accidents, attending complaints ranging from noisy neighbours to anti-social behaviour, responding to calls for assistance, assisting with missing person searches and concerns for welfare as well as assisting with traffic control at events.
A team consists of a Centenier, a Vingtenier and 2 or 3 Constable's Officers. Each team is on duty on a rota basis, usually for one week in four.
The Parish provides full training as well as uniform and equipment to enable officers to assist with the requirements of modern day policing.
The St Clement Honorary Police also organise a range of social events throughout the year. Whether it is whilst policing or socially, we believe in creating a great sense of teamwork and friendship.
We are currently seeking Parishioners to join our team. So what is the time commitment? Well, that is very much up to each member of the Honorary Police! What we ask is that each officer is on duty for one week in four, but if other activities mean that an officer is not available on a certain day, either on a regular or casual basis, then that can be accommodated. Equally we know that most people work during the week and are unlikely to be available during the day. But this is not a problem, as others may well be free.
Why not come and have a chat with us, totally without obligation, just to see if this might be for you. Alternatively, or additionally, you might like to have an informal meet with one of our Constable's Officers who can give your first-hand information about being an Honorary Officer. If this would be helpful we would be pleased to arrange this for you.
The St Clement Honorary Police are really first class people with a mission to support and help the community in which we live. It would be great if you would consider becoming part of the team.
If you, or a member of your family, are between the ages of 20 and 69 please consider joining us to help serve the community in which we live. Just ring the Parish Hall on 854724 for more information.

In the past, the Parish Welfare system had been the safety net for the more vulnerable in our society, and had been in existence for many years. In January of 2008, it was replaced by the new Income Support system administered centrally by the Ministry of Social Security. The new system has simplified the payment of benefits and is generally fairer, easier to understand.
But the old Parish welfare system was not just about money, it was equally about the Constable and his staff knowing and talking with the people who needed support to help them live independently in the community. Many used to attend the Parish Hall on a weekly basis not just to collect their money, but also for a general chat and discussion of any problems that may be bothering them. In this way a good rapport was established between parishioners and the Parish Hall staff. With the introduction of centrally-administered Income Support, this sort of personal contact has been lost, and with it some of the community benefits the Parishes could offer.
The valuable tradition of help in the community has been rekindled in the parish of St Clement by the establishment of a Community Support Team consisting of some now 45 dedicated and caring volunteers with a wide spectrum of experience and expertise, led by its Chairman, Chris Le Cornu – a former member of the Parish Welfare Committee.
Support is offered in whatever way is appropriate to the needs of the individual, perhaps in lifts to the Hospital or GP for appointments, assisting with shopping, completing application forms, or simply being a friendly face to chat with. In some cases, people need only be pointed in the direction of a more appropriate agency, such as Citizens’ Advice Bureau, for best advice on their particular problem, such as budgeting. But whatever the need, the St Clement Community Support team will be there and available to give advice.
Indeed the Team has now assisted in one way or another 400 families in the parish.
