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!

It appears that the Parish has survived another Jersey Live Music Festival relatively unscathed.
I must again pay tribute to the sterling efforts of our Honorary Police. The Trinity team put in an enormous amount of time and effort not only over the weekend but in the planning and organisation that is required to run the event. Thanks also for the support provided by officers from many of the other Parishes who turn out year after year to help - we couldn't do without them. Once again the main focus of complaints have centered around the small minority of festivalgoers who do not respect other people's property which is completely unacceptable.

|31/07/2016||Share your opinion on how you think Jersey is doing now and how you think we should be doing by 2036.|
ADD YOUR VOICE TO THE FUTURE OF JERSEY
How do you think Jersey is doing as a place to live, work and bring up children? We all have an opinion on what is good about our Island and what could be better. Now is the time to share that opinion. We want to gather your views; not only on how you think Jersey is doing now, but also on how you think we should be doing by 2036.
A community consultation has recently been launched to ask people to help shape a shared, long-term vision for Jersey. Setting a long term vision is a new approach to thinking about and planning for Jersey's future. The vision will describe what Jersey, as a community, believes it can achieve across a range of major outcomes – things which matter to residents' quality of life such as getting good jobs; living longer, healthier lives; and feeling safe.
The choices we make now will affect all of us. This is your opportunity to get involved. We need as many ideas and contributions as possible so that the final plan represents a common Jersey vision.
To find out more and complete the survey go to www.shapingourfuture.gov.je
The survey closes on Sunday 31st July 2016.
