16/05/2017Two Consultation Events

Two consultation events which will be taking place next week seeking views from users about the Promenade Cycle Route and the Railway Path. Whilst the events themselves are only in St Helier and St Brelade we hope to speak with as many path users from all parishes as possible. As we anticipate that the use of this path is wider that just the parishes it passes through this email is intended for all Parishes to the West of Jersey.

·         Next Tuesday from 12-6 we will be at Westpark by La Frigate seeking the views of all users of the route along there. The Police are also there and will be launching their campaign to promote considerate use of the route.

·         We will be at Elephant Park next Wednesday 3-5 doing the same event.

24/02/2017If you speak Jerriais, then please come forward

Jèrriais recording project

Hopefully many of our Jèrriais-speaking parishioners will be reading this! Some of you will be aware of the recent news that Dr. Mari Jones from Cambridge University, who is Reader in French Linguistics and Language Change (to give her formal title) is leading a project to record Jèrriais this spring/summer onwards. She has been a longstanding friend to Jersey with her great interest in Jèrriais, our native language, now only spoken by less than 5% of Jersey's population. Such has been her interest that she has learnt to speak Jèrriais, really quite fluently!

Starting in April, a team of recorders who themselves speak Jèrriais, want to hear from as many Jèrriais speakers as possible in order to record accent and vocabulary. There are  words and phrases used  in some parishes which are not  used in other parishes! This may not sound very important, but if not recorded by native speakers, they are lost to the printed word only, nowhere nearly as valuable as the spoken word!

So, if you would be willing to have your Jèrriais recorded – it can be speaking to a friend who also speaks Jèrriais or just yourself – please contact Colin Ireson at L'Office du Jèrriais on 449290 or home 726871 to register your interest. Recording can last 10 minutes or half an hour, it's up to you!
