Le Hocq Tower to Open as an Interpretation Centre
On World Wetlands Day, Saturday 2nd February 1000 - 1600
Also Sunday 3rd February 1000 – 1600
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!

|01/01/2019||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.

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.
Both new Parish Ambassadors will be seen participating in events throughout the year – including, of course the Battle of Flowers.
Good luck to them both

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.

The other finalists were Jessica Pinel and Charlotte Volante.
|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.
