Coffee Mornings will resume once we are confident that it is safe to do so however the Liberation Afternoon Tea will be postponed until next year.
We are extremely sorry and can assure you that this decision has not been taken lightly.

It is with great sadness that yesterday we lost our great leader and most of all our friend.

|10/03/2021||Notice and Plan|
An Assembly of the Principles and Electors of the Parish of St Clément was held at the Parish Hall on Tuesday 3rd March 2020 at 7pm. At that assembly it was agreed that the roads known as Le Squez Road and School Road (the 'Roads') be extinguished in accordance with the Extinguishment of Roads (Jersey) Law 1972 and both roads transferred to Andium Homes Limited ('Andium'), please see the plan overleaf.
Notice was given that the application would be heard by the court on 29th January 2021 and the court has now directed that the application be heard on 29th March 2021 at 9.30 a.m. and you have a right to attend on that day and be heard.
It was proposed that the Roads were regularly being used as 'rat runs' for vehicles leaving La Grande Route de St Clément to Rue du Maupertuis causing a nuisance to local residents. It was therefore agreed at the meeting that it was in the interests of residents to allow Andium to be given responsibility for both roads.
Before the application the parish is required to:
- Give residents at least 28 days' notice of its intention to apply to the Royal Court for the order to extinguish the roads.
- Post and keep posted throughout 14 days preceding the date, placard notices containing similar information; and
- Publishing in the Jersey Gazette on at least 3 occasions in the 14 days preceding the date a notice containing similar information.
As a result of the Roads being transferred, Andium must accept them subject to any services which pass through them (for example, water, gas or electricity). All access rights will remain in place.
A plan detailing the Roads to be transferred will be on display inside the Parish Hall from now until 29th March 2021, it is also available below.
Should you wish to discuss this matter further please contact me.

|25/06/2020||Closure to be permanent|
The Minister for Infrastructure, Deputy Kevin Lewis, has signed a Ministerial Decision which will permanently close Rue de Maupertuis to through traffic, except for access to premises. The decision has made been following a one-year trial closure, which ran from 3 April 2019 to 3 April 2020.
The closure is part of the Safer Routes to School Programme, which aims to create safer ways for pedestrians and cyclists to use busy roads to travel to and from school.
The trial closure has led to a 10% increase in the number school pupils walking or cycling along Rue de Maupertuis during the morning peak hour, and an overall reduction in traffic at the junction of Rue du Maupertuis, Rue de Samarès and Rue de la Croix.
In addition, of 250 Le Rocquier students who were surveyed, 77% said they felt safer when the road was closed to through traffic.
Plans to keep the road closed, has the support of Connétable of St Clément, Len Norman, and the Parish Roads Committee.
Constable Len Norman said: "We are happy to support this initiative to provide safer routes to school for students and increase the use of more active travelling modes on quiet parish roads. It had been my intention to call a Parish Assembly last month to endorse the decision, but because of the current restrictions this was sadly not possible."
A copy of the full scheme appraisal presented to the Parish of St Clément is available for download below.
Minister for Infrastructure, Deputy Kevin Lewis, said: "This closure is an excellent example of how a simple road closure can have a positive effect on residents, cyclists and pedestrians. The closure of Rue de Maupertuis will allow more students to stay active by walking and cycling to school and – most importantly – do so in safety."

|08/05/2020||Memorabilia Exhibition Update|
The Parish Connétables have announced plans for exhibitions across the island later in the year.
Parishioners are being invited to submit photographs of their home and street in lockdown and also decorated for Liberation 75 – 2020.
Chairman of the Comité des Connétables, Deidre Mezbourian, explained – QUOTE
Parish plans, and those of the Island, to mark Liberation 75 – 2020 may have been cancelled but many of my parishioners are still entering into the spirit of celebration and have decorated their homes with flags and bunting.
I didn't want to see this wasted and have suggested to my fellow Connétables that each Parish could put on an exhibition later in the year when life gets back to normal.
We're aware there are a number of other organisations also collecting photographs of this period in our island's life and this is not intended to detract from those initiatives. But it will be wonderful for each Parish to have its own record of these weeks in lockdown and also the way Liberation 75 is celebrated.
I'm delighted that my fellow Connétables are supportive of this proposal as an additional way to mark Liberation 75.
Parishioners are invited to send in photographs of Liberation 75, showing homes decorated for the occasion and street parties (at a social distance) and of 'lockdown'.
The photographs will be displayed at the Parish Hall for all to view following the lifting of COVID-19 movement restrictions.
The Connétables very much hope that all who now regard Jersey as their home will seek to preserve the special status of Liberation Day and will celebrate the occasion.
Photographs should be sent by email to email@example.com
by the end of May 2020.
Lockdown restrictions may be easing but dog owners are reminded the summer restrictions on Jersey beaches come into force on Saturday 1 May 2021.
The restrictions mean that all dogs must be kept on a lead on the beach between the hours of 10.30 a.m. and 6.00 p.m. Horse-riding is also prohibited on the beach between these hours. The restrictions apply from 1 May to 30 September.
With more people likely to be out and about enjoying the beaches and countryside over the bank holiday weekend all Chefs de Police are asking dog owners and horse-riders to consider other beach users.
Chairman of the Comité des Chefs de Police said – QUOTE
The Comité des Chef de Police wishes to remind dog owners, in particular, that from Saturday 1 May they must ensure their dog is kept on a lead if on the beach between 10.30 a.m. and 6.00 p.m.
With sunrise now at 5.45 a.m. and sunset at 8.30 p.m. there are plenty of daylight hours to walk your dog on the beach off the lead.
Dog owners must also clean up after their dog and this applies not only to beaches but also to parks, sand dunes, footpaths and roads.
There are frequently complaints about dog faeces and owners must clean up after their dogs and dispose of the litter in one of the many waste bins provided around the island. If you can't find a bin then take the litter home with you – don't discard the bag in the hedge or trees.
A fine of up to £1,000 can be imposed for breaching the summer restrictions and for not cleaning up after your dog.
- Contact for further information: Centenier Danny Scaife, Chairman of the Comité des Chefs de Police, Tel: 811894.
- The Policing of Beaches (Jersey) Regulations 1959 lists those acts which are prohibited on beaches including the restriction on use by dogs and horses from May to September inclusive.
- Legislation sets out the fine for offences is level 2 on the standard scale - £1,000:
- The Dogs (Jersey) Law 1961 requires that, when in a public place or on a highway, a dog must wear a collar with the name and address of the owner inscribed on the collar or on a plate or badge attached thereto (https://www.jerseylaw.je/laws/revised/Pages/02.550.aspx). Dogs must also be licensed by 31 January each year in the Parish in which the owner is resident.

The Parish Twinning Committee and the St Clement Petanque Club have organised a visit to Cancale on the weekend of 17th - 19th May. Though primarily to play the noble game, the French organisers are offering an opportunity for non-playing parishioners to accompany the party and participate in other activities. Friday: a visit to the Jeanne Jugan museum and town exhibition in the port. Saturday: a guided coastal walk and the chance of a dolphin-watching boat trip (£33). Saturday evening Gala Dinner – booked beforehand (Eu70). Sunday: Street market visit – highly recommended.
Anyone wishing to take advantage of the opportunity would be expected to make their own travel and accommodation arrangements, but the friendly Alg Hotel has reserved several rooms for St Clement visitors. Tel: 0033 299 89 5000. (Mme Boursin speaks English)
Contact Bernadette Cooper on: email@example.com before the end of March if you are interested in taking up the offer, as the organisers particularly need to know numbers interested in the dolphin boat trip.
|05/03/2019||We need your help|
Do you have memorbilia or memories of the liberation and occupation?
St Clement's Parish is getting prepared for our liberation 75 celebration and we are looking for memorabilia and memories that we can scan and takes copies of to create a display at our event. If you have anything suitable please pop it in to the Parish Hall.
|27/02/2019||Can you help by joining our team, so we can make the Parish a more comfortable and safer place for us all to live in?|
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.

Le Hocq Tower, Owned by the Parish of St Clement and leased to Jersey Heritage, will be open on Saturday 2nd February, and the following day, to commemorate World Wetlands Day, as it overlooks the South East Coast of Jersey RAMSAR site. This forms one of the largest intertidal reef sites in Europe. The RAMSAR site is so named as Jersey is a signatory to the Convention on Wetlands, signed in Ramsar, Iran on 2nd February 1971.
The RAMSAR site extends from St Helier Harbour to Gorey Harbour encompassing the SE corner of Jersey and on an extreme 12 metre spring tide, exposes in excess of 17.5 sq. km. of wave-cut rock platforms, extensive areas of reef at varying elevations, expansive rocky shores and a complex system of soft substrate gulleys.
With the experience of the 2018 openings, which were very well supported, the hours have been extended this year. In addition, following recent discussions between Jersey Heritage and the Jersey Tourist Guides Association (JTGA), within the Tower will be a number of pull-up banners telling the story of the Le Hocq area, one focusing on Le Hocq Tower and daily life within it and another on defensive coastal towers.
Other pull-up banners will describe the RAMSAR/wetlands site, ornithology and a new concept, the UNESCO Geopark to which Jersey may seek to achieve.
On Saturday 2 February between 10am and 3pm, complementary to the Tower's opening, an exhibition is being staged in the Parish Hall by a number of parties, including sections of the Societe Jersiaise, which will include an interactive 'touch tank'.
Jersey Heritage and guides of the JTGA, who will be in attendance at the Tower, look forward to welcoming you!

This year's Miss St Clement is Tasha Forrest. She was chosen to represent the Parish at an afternoon tea-party event at the Parish Hall. Tasha is an accomplished tennis player who is currently Sports captain at JCG and has eyes on competing at Wimbledon. She has had a long association with the Parish and is part of the Parish family.
She is joined by Lacey Le Boutellier, who took the title of Junior Miss St Clement. She's currently a student at St Clement's school, a keen dancer, having taken part in the recent Dance World Cup, loves working with numbers and meeting people.

St Clement has two new ambassadors this year. Miss St Clement 2017 is Sofia de Sousa, a 17 year-old student at Beaulieu, currently reading Psychology, Biology and English Literature who is a keen participant in modern dancing and and advocate of bringing people together. She was awarded the title at a fun-filled parish tea party in May, which also this year featured a competition for Miss Junior St Clement – a welcome return for young parishioners to become involved with parish activities. The winner was ten year-old Madeline Guegan who is keen to help with the excitement of preparing the Battle of Flowers float and share responsibilities for promoting the Parish.
Sofia has already embarked on duties as Miss St Clement helping to host fund-raising efforts on behalf of the St Clement Battle of Flowers Association.
Both winners were happy to be photographed in the sunshine alongside the Parish Hall.

|22/07/2014||At Your Service|
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.
