29/04/2021Summer restrictions on Jersey beaches come into force on Saturday 1 May 2021. 

SUMMER RESTRICTIONS FOR DOGS

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.

16/02/2021At the Parish of St Saviour, we believe in leading by example and are proud to announce we have made the switch to 100% Renewable Diesel for our recycling trucks. We are the first Parish in the island to do so.

Our recycling division is part of our Parish's commitment to make Jersey a greener place. As such, it seemed only right that the vehicles helping to reduce our harmful waste, also reduced their own impact on our local environment. This switch is inline with the Parish's Carbon Neutrality Objectives 2021.

The Parish are delighted to have worked with Rubis in making the switch from traditional diesel to RD100.

RD100 is clear, odourless and is refined from 100% renewable sources such as vegetable oils, waste fats or used cooking oil. It has better combustion and cold temperature resistance, making it an ideal fuel for Jersey's roads.

 Constable le Sueur-Rennard said, 'We are delighted to be the first Parish to use this revolutionary new fuel, and lead by example. Using RD100 can make an immediate positive difference to the local environment and is aligned with our commitment towards achieving carbon neutrality locally'.

 

For more information on renewable diesel, and the benefits to switching, visit: www.rubis-ci.co.uk/rd100

  
28/01/2021Due date for annual returns has passed

Any person who fails without reasonable cause to make a Return within the 15 days allowed, or by 15 January 2021 whichever is the later, is guilty of an offence and liable to a fine not exceeding £1,000.

09/12/2020Statement from Connétable Le Sueur-Rennard

I write to inform Parishioners that I have recently been made aware by our recycling partner "St Helier" that there has been a significant increase of contaminants such as cleaning wipes, tissues and used masks picked up on our recycling collections. These should never be disposed of in your recycling bin.

 Cleaning wipes, tissues and used masks

Not only are they non-recyclable, wipes can spoil any other material they come into contact with. They also have to be removed by hand once they reach the sorting facility, which is both unpleasant and unhygienic (especially at this time) for the person doing the picking.

 Such consumables should always be thrown out with your general waste and never disposed of in your recycling bag.

Failure to adhere to this request may result in the suspension of our services.

 What can Parishioners do to help?

As a Parishioner it is your responsibility to make sure that the right items are going in the correct bins. We know it can be confusing, so we've put together our top tips to help you get the most out of your recycling;

  •  Recycling should be clean and dry, so make sure to empty food and drink containers, give them a quick rinse and then leave to drain before recycling.
  • Remember to put lids back on to plastic tubs and bottles before popping them in your recycling bin.
  • Don't forget to recycle items from all rooms in the house – cleaning product bottles, toilet roll tubes and kitchen foil included.

I understand these are difficult times for all of us, but by working together and abiding by our recycling guidelines I believe we can continue to provide this valuable service to our parishioners.

​In light of the recent announcement made by the Chief Minister regarding the daily rise in COVID-19 cases, Connétable Le Sueur-Rennard, after much deliberation, has decided that it is in the best interest of both our staff and Parishioners to temporarily close the Parish Hall to the public from Friday 11th December until further notice.  This decision will be reviewed on a weekly basis following future announcements from the Government of Jersey.
 
As Connétable my primary focus is threefold: -
 
• To ensure that, as far as possible, we can continue to provide critical services to parishioners over the coming weeks – particularly to the most vulnerable;

 • To protect the wellbeing of colleagues and allow them to care for themselves and their loved ones during these difficult times; and

• To minimise the risk of spreading Covid-19, and encourage Parishioners to use our online services.
 
Municipal Services:

All other queries may be left in the letterbox which will be dealt with on a daily basis.  The office staff will endeavour to be of service to you and have procedures in place to enable us to continue to work. Please note that some staff are working from home and as a result there may be delays in service delivery times.

04/12/2020Statement by the Connétable

​Statement by the Connétable   Friday 4 December 2020 
 
Nominations Meeting for Members of the Roads Committee and Roads Inspectors  
 
As you may be aware, the Parish is scheduled to hold a Parish Assembly on 7th December 2020 at 6:30 pm to receive nominations for upcoming vacancies for Members of the Roads Committee and for Roads Inspectors.
 
In light of recent announcements by the Government of Jersey and the new strict measures/guidelines to combat the spread of COVID-19, the Connétable has concluded that it is not safe or practicable to ask parishioners to attend an Assembly to elect members to the Parish Roads Committee and Roads Inspectors at this time.
 
In order to meet legal requirements, a Parish Assembly will be held at 6.30 pm on 7th December 2020 to receive nomination for posts as member of the Roads Committee and as Roads Inspectors. If the number of candidates does not exceed the number of vacancies there will be no need for an election and the candidates will automatically appointed.
 
If there are more candidates than there are vacancies an election will be required. Because the current COVID restrictions make it impossible to hold a free and fair election at this time the election will be postponed until a date yet to be determined in April 2021.
 
In the case of a postponed election, it is hoped that the current Roads Committee and Roads Inspectors will continue in office until the election can take place.  
 
We hope that by April 2021 a planned vaccination programme will have commenced and infection rates will have considerably reduced.
 
Persons wishing to stand for membership of the Roads Committee and or as Roads Inspectors, should still contact the Executive Officer, Mr Marco Vieira, on m.vieira@poss.gov.je or 01534 735864, by 2pm Monday 7th December 2020.
 
Parishioners wishing to attend the Assembly, either in person or remotely, via "Zoom", should contact the Parish Hall (01534 735864) in advance to register.
 
Further details are available on the Parish's website at https://parish.gov.je/StSaviour/Pages/default.aspx

03/09/2020Supporting Durrell and thier rainforest projects

 

The Parish of St Saviour are delighted to announce that we are now using "Our Earth Paper". This environmentally friendly paper helps support Durrell with their project in the South American Rainforest and thier support for the Black Lion Tamarins (BLT) who are at risk of extinction, thier numbers are still decreasing and they have become isolated due to deforestation.  Durrell are the only place outside of Brazil who are breeding them, they are the rarest of the New World monkeys.   

At this Rainforest, Durrell have taken in landless people and given them a small a piece of land with shelter so they can grow their own food, they in return help to manage the forest rich in biodiversity with over 150 different species of trees. These are grown in a special nursery and once grown planted to create corridors of forest so that the BLT's can meet and breed with other BLT families. 

For more information please check out http://wildlife.durrell.org/animals/mammals/black-lion-tamarin/

The Parish are keen to do our part in saving the environment and are working towards eventually using recycled material for the majority of our stationery.

05/08/2020Concerns surrounding the Bagatelle Avenue area

​The Parish have recently received concerns around people feeding the seagulls in Bagatelle Avenue and the surrounding area. The island has a large gull population and it is around this time of year when the birds are building their nests and chicks are hatching - the noise from these birds is often a nuisance in residential areas and feeding them or leaving out easily accessible bags of rubbish only amplifies this.

We would like to remind Parishioners that under the Statutory Nuisances (Jersey) Regulations 2017, it's against the law to feed wild birds or other creatures in a way that means they become a nuisance or harmful to health. Some birds and rodents carry diseases which can be harmful to human health. Islanders who refuse to comply could be fined up to £1000.

We understand that people may believe they are helping or being kind to these birds, however we ask that you please think of the adverse effects before offering them food and especially when leaving refuse out for collection.

  
04/08/2020Please check junk email folders

​The 2020 rate demands have this week been sent out - if you have selected to recieve your demand via email and have not yet recieved it, please check your JUNK email box.

There are currently no plans to defer the 2020 rates, however, if your income or business has recently changed and you are concerned about your ability to your rates, please contact the Parish Hall on 735864 or email stsaviour@poss.gov.je


  
03/08/2020Review of St Saviour’s Recycling Service

The St Saviour kerbside recycling scheme resumed on the 15th June and we have had 3 collections to date, however, we are again seeing an extremely high volume of contaminants being put in with the recycling, this has included; used tissues, nappies, food waste – often unopen food waste still in packaging and even pots of paint (we have had open paint pots in the recycling which leaked causing the 1.5 ton of recycling in the truck at the time to be contaminated and rendered useless for recycling) – this is not acceptable. It only takes one single contaminant to be placed in with the recycling to make the entire bag (or even whole bin) null and void, used tissues, cleaning wipes and nappies also put the workforce at high risk of contamination.

 We understand that the odd non-recyclable continues to get through – this is somewhat unavoidable, however, we are asking parishioners to please be aware that contaminants can undo all the hard work that goes into separating/cleaning the items put into the clear bags.

 The Parish Feel this service is valuable to our Parishioners and we are very keen to keep it running, however, due to the above, the service is now under review. The kerbside collections will be continuing as normal however the large euro recycling bins at Rue des Pres have been temporarily removed due to the large number of contaminants.

02/07/2020Bagatelle Lane

The Parish of St Saviour have been working with the Government of Jersey to improve safety for pedestrians using Bagatelle Lane under the Safer Routes to Schools Initiative.

This involves the creation of a 'Virtual Footpath' on the west side of the road (with built up pavements in some locations), changing the road to one way for vehicular traffic (to be Northbound only), and a reduction in the speed limit from 30mph to 20mph.

The original timetable was to undertake this work during the 2020 school summer holidays to avoid the peak school drop off/pick up periods. At this time, whilst we are still in lockdown and as the roads remain comparatively quiet, the opportunity has arisen to bring this work forward. Hence the work will now commence on or soon after Monday 8th June 2020. It is anticipated that the work will take approximately five weeks to complete. As part of the temporary traffic management, Growth Housing and Environment plan to implement the one-way system relatively soon once the works have begun.

Should you wish to discuss this work and what is proposed please contact the project engineer on j.ruddy@gov.je

To discuss access and servicing during the works please contact Dave O'Brien who will be managing the work on site D.O'Brien@gov.je

  
16/06/2020From Wednesday, 1st July, time restrictions and charging will be reinstated for Government-run car parks and on-street parking.

​The relaxed rules have been permanently in place since 29th March, enabling motorists to park for free and with unrestricted time.


From Wednesday 1st July, standard parking measures will return across the Island, and Patriotic Street car park, and Gloucester Street will stop being exclusively for the use of health workers.

 

The Minister for Infrastructure, Deputy Kevin Lewis, said: “The parking rules were suspended to help people during quarantine, so they did not have to leave their home to move their car. It also enabled Government staff to be redeployed during the pandemic".

 

“We are giving plenty of notice that parking charges and time restrictions are to return to enable us to remobilise our parking control teams, and to give Islanders plenty of time to consider how they are going to manage their parking, since there will still be a requirement to safely distance from others.

14/05/2020From 10.30 am on 13 May, dogs must be kept on a lead and horses will not be allowed on beaches between 10.30am and 6pm

​Dog walkers and horse riders using the beaches will have to adhere to the usual restrictions during the summer now that Stay at Home restrictions have been relaxed.

From 10.30 am on 13 May, dogs must be kept on a lead and horses will not be allowed on beaches between 10.30am and 6pm.

Islanders have been able to continue to walk their dogs off the lead and ride horses on the beaches at any time of the day. The extension of the winter hours was intended to give dog walkers greater flexibility to comply with physical distancing rules while beaches were quiet.
 
However, in light of the changes to Stay at Home restrictions, ministers believe that a balance must be struck between achieving this flexibility and ensuring those currently accessing Jersey’s beaches for social activities are not unduly disturbed.
 
The Assistant Minister for Economic Development, Tourism, Sport and Culture, Senator Steve Pallett, was planning to lodge legislation to extend the period that dogs without a lead and horses could be on beaches until Stay at Home restrictions were lifted.
 
The draft legislation, due to be debated by the States Assembly on 12 May, would have amended the Policing of Beaches (Jersey) Regulations 1959, which states that dogs must remain on leads between 10.30am and 6pm during the period of 1 May and 30 September.
 
However, following the relaxing of Stay at Home restrictions last week, Senator Pallett, in agreement with the Council of Ministers, has decided against extending the winter hours.
 
Senator Pallett said: “When we first considered an amendment to the Policing of Beaches (Jersey) Regulations 1959 some two weeks ago, we were under stricter Stay at Home measures. While these stricter rules were in place and people could only walk or exercise on the beach, it seemed sensible to extend the winter rules on allowing dogs to be walked off the lead during this lockdown period as there was little opportunity for dogs to be a nuisance to beach goers. It also allowed dog owners better opportunities to adhere to the physical distancing rules if they had the whole day to walk their dog rather than just the period before 10.30am and after 6pm.
 
“However, since the relaxation of the Stay at Home restrictions, families and household groups are accessing the beach more readily and are increasingly likely to do so when the weather is good. This will undoubtedly mean the likelihood that, should dog walkers have access to the beach to walk their dogs off the lead between 10.30am and 6pm, there is an increased risk that loose dogs will cause a nuisance to beach goers. The summer restrictions are specifically put in place to prevent this happening while people enjoy the beach, often with children.”
 
The Attorney General, Mark Temple QC, had previously said he wouldn’t pursue offences under the law from 1 May until the States considered the proposal on the 12 May. With the extension of winter hours for dog walking not going ahead, Islanders could risk prosecution from next Wednesday if they do not abide by the law.
 
However, Senator Pallett added that, should the situation change and stricter Stay at Home measures implemented, the amendment to the law could be debated.

11/05/2020Thank you from the Roads and Refuse departments

​The Refuse and Roads Departments would like to thank all of the Parishioners for their support and generosity they have shown the teams during these difficult times.

  
07/05/2020The 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.

  
06/05/2020Invitation to Tender - Parishes IT Strategy

​Companies/persons who wish to Tender for the Parishes IT Strategy and who are able to demonstrate relevant IT experience are invited to contact parish-tenders@code.je for further details and a copy of the Tender document.

The closing date for submission of tenders is 5 pm Friday 5 June 2020.

  
06/05/2020Lockdown restrictions may have been relaxed but dog owners are reminded they still have a duty to pick up their dog's mess.

With more people likely to be out for a longer period each day the Connetables are asking dog owners to consider all other beach users.

Owners should ensure they keep their dog under control at all times and pick up their dog's mess. 

Chairman of the Comité des Connétables, Deidre Mezbourian, said – QUOTE

 

The Connétables wish to remind dog owners of the law and that they must pick up their dog's mess and dispose of it in a bin.

 

Connetables are receiving compaints about the condition of beaches and also parks, sand dunes and footpaths. The requirement to clean up after your dog applies to all public areas including roads and pavements.

 

It is an offence to dispose of plastic bags containing dog faeces other than in a waste receptacle and there are lots of bins 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 on those who do not clean up after their dog.

Due to our recent announcements regarding the suspension of our residential recycling services, this week we have been monitoring the levels of contamination on our refuse services, and note, that there are now seeing a high level of contaminants and in particular, garden waste being disposed of in bags for collection with general household refuse.

 

Connétable of St Saviour

 

"We would like to draw to the attention of our parishioners, at any point Garden Green Waste will not be accepted in the Refuse Collection".

 

"I am disappointed that the levels of contamination in our refuse service have increase this week but not, surprised, the weather is great, Government of Jersey are advising to stay at home rightly, however, I would like to URGE parishioners that if our service is to continue as normal, PLEASE DO NOT mix your garden waste with your normal refuse".

30/03/2020Advice for islanders during lockdown period

​​

From 8am on Monday 30 March, the Government will instruct all Islanders who are not doing essential work to ‘stay at home’.

This means, everyone in Jersey is ordered to stay at home at all times from 8am on Monday 30 March, except for a limited number of reasons.

Reasons to be outside the home

People should only leave their homes for a total of 2 hours each day, and in the following limited circumstances:

  1. when you need to shop for food, medicine, and other basic necessities, which should be as infrequently as possible
  2. for daily exercise. This can include walking, cycling, running, exercising or caring for animals, provided you maintain social distancing from everyone outside your own household
  3. for any medical needs, including providing care

When outside your home or garden, you must maintain a safe social distance of two metres from anyone outside your own household.

Take advantage of Jersey’s open spaces (beaches, coast and countryside) where you are able to do so and where you can remain spread out from other people (avoiding narrow paths).

You should also avoid congregating in popular areas.

Everyone must follow this guidance, to help suppress the spread of COVID-19. This will be monitored and policed. If people disregard this order to Stay at Home, more restrictive controls are very likely to be introduced.

Staying at home advice

The Government has issued advice on how to prepare and manage daily life while staying at home as strict social distancing measures are amplified.

The new advice includes methods that all Islanders can take to practically prepare themselves and their families for staying at home, including:

  • exchanging personal contact details with neighbours, extended family members and friends
  • creating an essential contact list including, neighbours, schools, pharmacy and the helpline +44 (0) 1534 445566
  • ensuring access is available to everything needed for the duration of the self-isolation period, including food and medical supplies
  • talking with employers, family, friends and charities regarding getting help to access things needed
  • setting up online shopping accounts
  • considering activities you can do within the home, such as fitness workouts and a choice of leisure activities
  • planning for self-isolation measures for individual household members within the home

Staying at home for individuals and households

Social distancing

Shielding the extremely vulnerable from coronavirus

The guidance also sets out how to maintain safe social distance within the home if living with a vulnerable person, with children, pets and contains information for mothers breastfeeding. There is general advice on cleaning, hygiene, waste disposal, laundry and how to get better at home.

Islanders can find information regarding medical advice if illness becomes worse, by contacting your GP or the helpline on +44 (0) 1534 445566. In the case of an emergency, dial 999 and let the operator know about any coronavirus symptoms.

Work and business

Work should be undertaken from home whenever possible.

People engaged in work that is designated as being essential to the safe running of the Island during this time are permitted to travel to and from their place of work when necessary. Social distancing and good hygiene must be practised at all times.

Advice for businesses operating during Stay at Home restrictions

Essential and critical workers

Essential workers are people engaged in work that is essential to the continued safe running of the Island during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Advice for businesses operating during Stay at Home restrictions

Critical workers are a smaller sub-set of essential workers in especially critical roles. 

If they are parents and cannot make arrangements for their children to be looked after at home, are being offered school or nursery places by government as a last resort. 

Critical workers and childcare

A further, very small subset of essential workers may need to travel into Jersey:

  • Health and care workers arriving into Jersey since Sunday 22 March are required to self-isolate (like most travellers), and a risk assessment process is then undertaken by the Health and Community Services department to determine whether it is safe for them to leave isolation to go to work.
  • Other essential workers arriving into Jersey since Friday 20 March are asked to self-assess whether it is really necessary for them to work on-site or whether they can isolate for 14 days like most travellers (for example, working

Weddings and funerals

Following a review by the Competent Authority Minister on Friday, it was decided that weddings booked from 30 March to 30 June will not be permitted to go ahead, apart from in special circumstances such as where one or both individuals are subject to end of life care, including COVID-19. 

Funerals are permitted to take place, although these may only be attended by the immediate family, and social distancing must be observed between people from different households.

 

  
26/03/2020Update from Sadie Le Sueur-Rennard, Connetable of St Saviour

Over the course of this week, I was made aware by our recycling Partner "St Helier" that there has been a significant increase of contaminants such as cleaning wipes, tissues, picked up on our recycling collections. This poses a significant a health risk to St Saviours and St Heliers employees and, I therefore regret to inform our parishioners that I have made the decision with St Helier to take effect from the Friday 27 March 2020 to suspend our recycling service until further notice.

I want to assure our Parishioners that the refuse services (black Bags) will still be continuing as normal for now.

I would like to assure my parishioners that I will be working hard to recommence our service as soon as possible safe to do so, and ask for understanding in this difficult time our island is experiencing.

Stay safe, protect your loved ones and be positive.

25/03/2020Recycling Services – Contamination level increases 

​We are experiencing a significant increase in the volume of household waste as more parishioners work from home and receive more packages delivered directly to home addresses. We ask that parishioners continue to place their waste in appropriate bins for collection on normal days.

**********************

We have been informed by our recycling partner "Parish of St Helier" that due to the rising number of parishioners working from home and the high number of packages being delivered, there has been a considerable increase of waste such as used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths which are raising contamination the recyclable items.

*** Please take extra care to not include food waste, tissues and other contaminants with the recyclable waste.***

 

Thank you and stay safe x x

Coronavirus advice and information for Parishioners and businesses

Coronavirus (Covid-19) – what we’re doing

In response to the challenges of Coronavirus, Government’s latest guidance and in the best interests of protecting our parishioners, volunteers, visitors and staff from a coronavirus outbreak, along with a number of workforce shortages to critical areas of our service, we have made the decision to close the Parish Hall Building as of Lunchtime Today (23.03.2020).

Parish Administration (our buildings) & St Saviour Community Support Group Services

  • Office buildings will be closed to the public but the office is still operating as normal (08:45-15:45).
  • We are accessible by telephone on 735864 or by e-mail at  stsaviour@poss.gov.je.
  • Online Services such as Rates, Driving Licenses (apart from provisionals) and electoral can be completed online. Please visit My Parish Online for more information.
  • Any other queries may be left in the letterbox which will be dealt with on a daily basis.
  • St Saviour Community Support Group & Helpline for the vulnerable on 07797737480 and the Parish Hall on 735864.
  • Honorary Police Services – based on medical advice, officer availability has greatly reduced, therefore officer availability may be affected at times, however, Duty Centenier phone is available 24/7. Parish Hall enquiries have been cancelled until further notice.

Committees, public meetings/events & church services

All public meetings and civic engagements have been cancelled until further notice, including Road Committee meeting, Rates Assessors & Honorary Police meetings, Rates surgeries, and other working social groups have also been suspended.

Controlled measures will be put in place for upcoming services, and we are working closely with funeral directors to try as far as possible to enable funerals to continue to take place.

Our church and our lovely Rector Peter Dyson and his team, confirmed; "we have decided that the church remains open and available for individual worship or as a refuge for thought and reflection. We, as a Church want to let our Parishioners know that they are not alone." Peter is very happy to speak with you and give support to any parishioner who wishes to contact him on 736679 or pwdyson@btinternet.com.


We will continue working to minimise disruption to our services, also to work hard to retain as many services as possible in line with Government of Jerseys guidelines. We know that changes to our services are frustrating at any time, but we have to prioritise our services in what is an unprecedented situation.

We’d like to thank Parishioners for their support and understanding. #Stay safe.

20/03/2020All arrivals in Jersey required to self-isolate for 14 days

With effect from 00:01 on Friday 20 March, the Government of Jersey is introducing new guidance for all travellers arriving in Jersey, wherever they began their journey. This includes the UK, Guernsey, Europe and the rest of the world.

The guidance is that all travellers arriving in Jersey must now self-isolate for 14 days. This is regardless of whether they are displaying flu-like symptoms or not.

  • Solo travellers, who live alone, should immediately go into self-isolation
  • A family or group travelling together should ALL immediately go into self-isolation
  • Where a solo traveller is returning to a shared or family home, ALL members in that home should immediately go into self-isolation

During the self-isolation period of 14 days, anyone who develops flu-like symptoms should call the helpline.

People are advised not to travel to the Island unless they have the ability to self-isolate for a full 14 days in Jersey.

Arriving passengers who are non-symptomatic can, where absolutely necessary, use public transport for the short journey (maximum 1 hour) to travel directly from arrival to their home, whilst observing social distancing advice. They must then follow the self-isolation rules. They can also use their own transport, or travel with an individual collecting them, again subject to observing social distancing advice and cleaning the vehicle after use. Passengers should travel directly to their homes and not visit any shops during the journey.

Transport will be provided for any symptomatic travellers.

The measure does not apply to essential workers coming to Jersey, as they should not affect our overall containment strategy and their presence in Jersey is very important to help us to keep the Island running. If essential workers develop symptoms of coronavirus within 14 days of travel they must self-isolate and self-refer. Any essential worker who has been in contact with any confirmed COVID-19 individual abroad must self-isolate for 14 days. Essential workers are also advised to actively limit the frequency of travel into and out of the Island.

Medical advice has been updated and is constantly under review. This is based on the latest data.

Islanders are advised to only travel off-Island if it is truly essential, such as for medical care, to provide care for vulnerable dependents and for essential business that can’t be undertaken remotely by electronic or other means.

Anyone returning from anywhere abroad with symptoms of coronavirus should immediately self-isolate and self-refer by calling the helpline on +44 (0) 1534 445566.

The line is open every day from 8am to 8pm.

  
19/03/2020Connétables recommend you phone or email your Parish
 
Connétables say it is business as usual at Parish Halls but recommend you phone or email your Parish so they can deal with your enquiry. Contact details are on the Parish's home page.


This follows best practice advice and guidance to reduce the spread of the virus. The Parish can post any forms or leaflets you need and there are online services to renew a full driving licence, submit a rates return or to change a name and address.

 


Parish Hall Enquiries are likely to be deferred but individuals will be notified of the arrangements.

29/04/2021Summer restrictions on Jersey beaches come into force on Saturday 1 May 2021. 

SUMMER RESTRICTIONS FOR DOGS

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.

16/02/2021At the Parish of St Saviour, we believe in leading by example and are proud to announce we have made the switch to 100% Renewable Diesel for our recycling trucks. We are the first Parish in the island to do so.

Our recycling division is part of our Parish's commitment to make Jersey a greener place. As such, it seemed only right that the vehicles helping to reduce our harmful waste, also reduced their own impact on our local environment. This switch is inline with the Parish's Carbon Neutrality Objectives 2021.

The Parish are delighted to have worked with Rubis in making the switch from traditional diesel to RD100.

RD100 is clear, odourless and is refined from 100% renewable sources such as vegetable oils, waste fats or used cooking oil. It has better combustion and cold temperature resistance, making it an ideal fuel for Jersey's roads.

 Constable le Sueur-Rennard said, 'We are delighted to be the first Parish to use this revolutionary new fuel, and lead by example. Using RD100 can make an immediate positive difference to the local environment and is aligned with our commitment towards achieving carbon neutrality locally'.

 

For more information on renewable diesel, and the benefits to switching, visit: www.rubis-ci.co.uk/rd100

  
28/01/2021Due date for annual returns has passed

​Each owner of land in the Parish has been served with a notice to make a Return of all land, houses, buildings and other structures owned at 1 January 2021. Any owner who has not received a notice and Return should contact the Connétable immediately.

Any person who fails without reasonable cause to make a Return within the 15 days allowed, or by 15 January 2021 whichever is the later, is guilty of an offence and liable to a fine not exceeding £1,000.

If you are still to make your return or require another copy, please contact the Parish Hall as soon as possible on 01534 735864 or stsaviour@poss.gov.je

09/12/2020Statement from Connétable Le Sueur-Rennard

I write to inform Parishioners that I have recently been made aware by our recycling partner "St Helier" that there has been a significant increase of contaminants such as cleaning wipes, tissues and used masks picked up on our recycling collections. These should never be disposed of in your recycling bin.

 Cleaning wipes, tissues and used masks

Not only are they non-recyclable, wipes can spoil any other material they come into contact with. They also have to be removed by hand once they reach the sorting facility, which is both unpleasant and unhygienic (especially at this time) for the person doing the picking.

 Such consumables should always be thrown out with your general waste and never disposed of in your recycling bag.

Failure to adhere to this request may result in the suspension of our services.

 What can Parishioners do to help?

As a Parishioner it is your responsibility to make sure that the right items are going in the correct bins. We know it can be confusing, so we've put together our top tips to help you get the most out of your recycling;

  •  Recycling should be clean and dry, so make sure to empty food and drink containers, give them a quick rinse and then leave to drain before recycling.
  • Remember to put lids back on to plastic tubs and bottles before popping them in your recycling bin.
  • Don't forget to recycle items from all rooms in the house – cleaning product bottles, toilet roll tubes and kitchen foil included.

I understand these are difficult times for all of us, but by working together and abiding by our recycling guidelines I believe we can continue to provide this valuable service to our parishioners.

09/12/2020The Parish Hall will be closed to the public from Friday 11th December until further notice.

​In light of the recent announcement made by the Chief Minister regarding the daily rise in COVID-19 cases, Connétable Le Sueur-Rennard, after much deliberation, has decided that it is in the best interest of both our staff and Parishioners to temporarily close the Parish Hall to the public from Friday 11th December until further notice.  This decision will be reviewed on a weekly basis following future announcements from the Government of Jersey.
 
As Connétable my primary focus is threefold: -
 
• To ensure that, as far as possible, we can continue to provide critical services to parishioners over the coming weeks – particularly to the most vulnerable;

 • To protect the wellbeing of colleagues and allow them to care for themselves and their loved ones during these difficult times; and

• To minimise the risk of spreading Covid-19, and encourage Parishioners to use our online services.
 
Municipal Services:
 
Administration Online services such as Rates, Driving Licenses (apart from Provisionals) and electoral, can be completed online. Please visit My Parish Online https://parish.gov.je/Pages/Do-It-Online.aspx

All other queries may be left in the letterbox which will be dealt with on a daily basis.  The office staff will endeavour to be of service to you and have procedures in place to enable us to continue to work. Please note that some staff are working from home and as a result there may be delays in service delivery times.

04/12/2020Statement by the Connétable

​Statement by the Connétable   Friday 4 December 2020 
 
Nominations Meeting for Members of the Roads Committee and Roads Inspectors  
 
As you may be aware, the Parish is scheduled to hold a Parish Assembly on 7th December 2020 at 6:30 pm to receive nominations for upcoming vacancies for Members of the Roads Committee and for Roads Inspectors.
 
In light of recent announcements by the Government of Jersey and the new strict measures/guidelines to combat the spread of COVID-19, the Connétable has concluded that it is not safe or practicable to ask parishioners to attend an Assembly to elect members to the Parish Roads Committee and Roads Inspectors at this time.
 
In order to meet legal requirements, a Parish Assembly will be held at 6.30 pm on 7th December 2020 to receive nomination for posts as member of the Roads Committee and as Roads Inspectors. If the number of candidates does not exceed the number of vacancies there will be no need for an election and the candidates will automatically appointed.
 
If there are more candidates than there are vacancies an election will be required. Because the current COVID restrictions make it impossible to hold a free and fair election at this time the election will be postponed until a date yet to be determined in April 2021.
 
In the case of a postponed election, it is hoped that the current Roads Committee and Roads Inspectors will continue in office until the election can take place.  
 
We hope that by April 2021 a planned vaccination programme will have commenced and infection rates will have considerably reduced.
 
Persons wishing to stand for membership of the Roads Committee and or as Roads Inspectors, should still contact the Executive Officer, Mr Marco Vieira, on m.vieira@poss.gov.je or 01534 735864, by 2pm Monday 7th December 2020.
 
Parishioners wishing to attend the Assembly, either in person or remotely, via "Zoom", should contact the Parish Hall (01534 735864) in advance to register.
 
Further details are available on the Parish's website at https://parish.gov.je/StSaviour/Pages/default.aspx

26/11/2020Parish Assembly 7th December 2020

​A Parish Assembly is due to be held on 7th December 2020, this assembly is to approve the minutes of the previous Parish Assembly and to elect the members of the Roads Committee and the Roads Inspectors.

The Parish of St Saviour are delighted to announce that we are now using "Our Earth Paper". This environmentally friendly paper helps support Durrell with their project in the South American Rainforest and thier support for the Black Lion Tamarins (BLT) who are at risk of extinction, thier numbers are still decreasing and they have become isolated due to deforestation.  Durrell are the only place outside of Brazil who are breeding them, they are the rarest of the New World monkeys.   

At this Rainforest, Durrell have taken in landless people and given them a small a piece of land with shelter so they can grow their own food, they in return help to manage the forest rich in biodiversity with over 150 different species of trees. These are grown in a special nursery and once grown planted to create corridors of forest so that the BLT's can meet and breed with other BLT families.

05/08/2020Concerns surrounding the Bagatelle Avenue area

​The Parish have recently received concerns around people feeding the seagulls in Bagatelle Avenue and the surrounding area. The island has a large gull population and it is around this time of year when the birds are building their nests and chicks are hatching - the noise from these birds is often a nuisance in residential areas and feeding them or leaving out easily accessible bags of rubbish only amplifies this.

We would like to remind Parishioners that under the Statutory Nuisances (Jersey) Regulations 2017, it's against the law to feed wild birds or other creatures in a way that means they become a nuisance or harmful to health. Some birds and rodents carry diseases which can be harmful to human health. Islanders who refuse to comply could be fined up to £1000.

We understand that people may believe they are helping or being kind to these birds, however we ask that you please think of the adverse effects before offering them food and especially when leaving refuse out for collection.

  
04/08/2020Please check junk email folders

​The 2020 rate demands have this week been sent out - if you have selected to recieve your demand via email and have not yet recieved it, please check your JUNK email box.

There are currently no plans to defer the 2020 rates, however, if your income or business has recently changed and you are concerned about your ability to your rates, please contact the Parish Hall on 735864 or email stsaviour@poss.gov.je


  
03/08/2020Review of St Saviour’s Recycling Service

The St Saviour kerbside recycling scheme resumed on the 15th June and we have had 3 collections to date, however, we are again seeing an extremely high volume of contaminants being put in with the recycling, this has included; used tissues, nappies, food waste – often unopen food waste still in packaging and even pots of paint (we have had open paint pots in the recycling which leaked causing the 1.5 ton of recycling in the truck at the time to be contaminated and rendered useless for recycling) – this is not acceptable. It only takes one single contaminant to be placed in with the recycling to make the entire bag (or even whole bin) null and void, used tissues, cleaning wipes and nappies also put the workforce at high risk of contamination.

 We understand that the odd non-recyclable continues to get through – this is somewhat unavoidable, however, we are asking parishioners to please be aware that contaminants can undo all the hard work that goes into separating/cleaning the items put into the clear bags.

 The Parish Feel this service is valuable to our Parishioners and we are very keen to keep it running, however, due to the above, the service is now under review. The kerbside collections will be continuing as normal however the large euro recycling bins at Rue des Pres have been temporarily removed due to the large number of contaminants.

02/07/2020Bagatelle Lane

The Parish of St Saviour have been working with the Government of Jersey to improve safety for pedestrians using Bagatelle Lane under the Safer Routes to Schools Initiative.

This involves the creation of a 'Virtual Footpath' on the west side of the road (with built up pavements in some locations), changing the road to one way for vehicular traffic (to be Northbound only), and a reduction in the speed limit from 30mph to 20mph.

The original timetable was to undertake this work during the 2020 school summer holidays to avoid the peak school drop off/pick up periods. At this time, whilst we are still in lockdown and as the roads remain comparatively quiet, the opportunity has arisen to bring this work forward. Hence the work will now commence on or soon after Monday 8th June 2020. It is anticipated that the work will take approximately five weeks to complete. As part of the temporary traffic management, Growth Housing and Environment plan to implement the one-way system relatively soon once the works have begun.

Bagatelle Lane Virtual Footpath plan.pdf

Should you wish to discuss this work and what is proposed please contact the project engineer on j.ruddy@gov.je

To discuss access and servicing during the works please contact Dave O'Brien who will be managing the work on site D.O'Brien@gov.je

  
16/06/2020From Wednesday, 1st July, time restrictions and charging will be reinstated for Government-run car parks and on-street parking.

​The relaxed rules have been permanently in place since 29th March, enabling motorists to park for free and with unrestricted time.


From Wednesday 1st July, standard parking measures will return across the Island, and Patriotic Street car park, and Gloucester Street will stop being exclusively for the use of health workers.

 

The Minister for Infrastructure, Deputy Kevin Lewis, said: “The parking rules were suspended to help people during quarantine, so they did not have to leave their home to move their car. It also enabled Government staff to be redeployed during the pandemic".

 

“We are giving plenty of notice that parking charges and time restrictions are to return to enable us to remobilise our parking control teams, and to give Islanders plenty of time to consider how they are going to manage their parking, since there will still be a requirement to safely distance from others.

14/05/2020From 10.30 am on 13 May, dogs must be kept on a lead and horses will not be allowed on beaches between 10.30am and 6pm

​Dog walkers and horse riders using the beaches will have to adhere to the usual restrictions during the summer now that Stay at Home restrictions have been relaxed.

From 10.30 am on 13 May, dogs must be kept on a lead and horses will not be allowed on beaches between 10.30am and 6pm.

Islanders have been able to continue to walk their dogs off the lead and ride horses on the beaches at any time of the day. The extension of the winter hours was intended to give dog walkers greater flexibility to comply with physical distancing rules while beaches were quiet.
 
However, in light of the changes to Stay at Home restrictions, ministers believe that a balance must be struck between achieving this flexibility and ensuring those currently accessing Jersey’s beaches for social activities are not unduly disturbed.
 
The Assistant Minister for Economic Development, Tourism, Sport and Culture, Senator Steve Pallett, was planning to lodge legislation to extend the period that dogs without a lead and horses could be on beaches until Stay at Home restrictions were lifted.
 
The draft legislation, due to be debated by the States Assembly on 12 May, would have amended the Policing of Beaches (Jersey) Regulations 1959, which states that dogs must remain on leads between 10.30am and 6pm during the period of 1 May and 30 September.
 
However, following the relaxing of Stay at Home restrictions last week, Senator Pallett, in agreement with the Council of Ministers, has decided against extending the winter hours.
 
Senator Pallett said: “When we first considered an amendment to the Policing of Beaches (Jersey) Regulations 1959 some two weeks ago, we were under stricter Stay at Home measures. While these stricter rules were in place and people could only walk or exercise on the beach, it seemed sensible to extend the winter rules on allowing dogs to be walked off the lead during this lockdown period as there was little opportunity for dogs to be a nuisance to beach goers. It also allowed dog owners better opportunities to adhere to the physical distancing rules if they had the whole day to walk their dog rather than just the period before 10.30am and after 6pm.
 
“However, since the relaxation of the Stay at Home restrictions, families and household groups are accessing the beach more readily and are increasingly likely to do so when the weather is good. This will undoubtedly mean the likelihood that, should dog walkers have access to the beach to walk their dogs off the lead between 10.30am and 6pm, there is an increased risk that loose dogs will cause a nuisance to beach goers. The summer restrictions are specifically put in place to prevent this happening while people enjoy the beach, often with children.”
 
The Attorney General, Mark Temple QC, had previously said he wouldn’t pursue offences under the law from 1 May until the States considered the proposal on the 12 May. With the extension of winter hours for dog walking not going ahead, Islanders could risk prosecution from next Wednesday if they do not abide by the law.
 
However, Senator Pallett added that, should the situation change and stricter Stay at Home measures implemented, the amendment to the law could be debated.

11/05/2020Thank you from the Roads and Refuse departments

​The Refuse and Roads Departments would like to thank all of the Parishioners for their support and generosity they have shown the teams during these difficult times.

  
07/05/2020The 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.

  
06/05/2020Invitation to Tender - Parishes IT Strategy

​Companies/persons who wish to Tender for the Parishes IT Strategy and who are able to demonstrate relevant IT experience are invited to contact parish-tenders@code.je for further details and a copy of the Tender document.

The closing date for submission of tenders is 5 pm Friday 5 June 2020.

  
06/05/2020Lockdown restrictions may have been relaxed but dog owners are reminded they still have a duty to pick up their dog's mess.

With more people likely to be out for a longer period each day the Connetables are asking dog owners to consider all other beach users.

Owners should ensure they keep their dog under control at all times and pick up their dog's mess. 

Chairman of the Comité des Connétables, Deidre Mezbourian, said – QUOTE

 

The Connétables wish to remind dog owners of the law and that they must pick up their dog's mess and dispose of it in a bin.

 

Connetables are receiving compaints about the condition of beaches and also parks, sand dunes and footpaths. The requirement to clean up after your dog applies to all public areas including roads and pavements.

 

It is an offence to dispose of plastic bags containing dog faeces other than in a waste receptacle and there are lots of bins 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 on those who do not clean up after their dog.

Due to our recent announcements regarding the suspension of our residential recycling services, this week we have been monitoring the levels of contamination on our refuse services, and note, that there are now seeing a high level of contaminants and in particular, garden waste being disposed of in bags for collection with general household refuse.

 

Connétable of St Saviour

 

"We would like to draw to the attention of our parishioners, at any point Garden Green Waste will not be accepted in the Refuse Collection".

 

"I am disappointed that the levels of contamination in our refuse service have increase this week but not, surprised, the weather is great, Government of Jersey are advising to stay at home rightly, however, I would like to URGE parishioners that if our service is to continue as normal, PLEASE DO NOT mix your garden waste with your normal refuse".

30/03/2020Advice for islanders during lockdown period

​​

From 8am on Monday 30 March, the Government will instruct all Islanders who are not doing essential work to ‘stay at home’.

This means, everyone in Jersey is ordered to stay at home at all times from 8am on Monday 30 March, except for a limited number of reasons.

Reasons to be outside the home

People should only leave their homes for a total of 2 hours each day, and in the following limited circumstances:

  1. when you need to shop for food, medicine, and other basic necessities, which should be as infrequently as possible
  2. for daily exercise. This can include walking, cycling, running, exercising or caring for animals, provided you maintain social distancing from everyone outside your own household
  3. for any medical needs, including providing care

When outside your home or garden, you must maintain a safe social distance of two metres from anyone outside your own household.

Take advantage of Jersey’s open spaces (beaches, coast and countryside) where you are able to do so and where you can remain spread out from other people (avoiding narrow paths).

You should also avoid congregating in popular areas.

Everyone must follow this guidance, to help suppress the spread of COVID-19. This will be monitored and policed. If people disregard this order to Stay at Home, more restrictive controls are very likely to be introduced.

Staying at home advice

The Government has issued advice on how to prepare and manage daily life while staying at home as strict social distancing measures are amplified.

The new advice includes methods that all Islanders can take to practically prepare themselves and their families for staying at home, including:

  • exchanging personal contact details with neighbours, extended family members and friends
  • creating an essential contact list including, neighbours, schools, pharmacy and the helpline +44 (0) 1534 445566
  • ensuring access is available to everything needed for the duration of the self-isolation period, including food and medical supplies
  • talking with employers, family, friends and charities regarding getting help to access things needed
  • setting up online shopping accounts
  • considering activities you can do within the home, such as fitness workouts and a choice of leisure activities
  • planning for self-isolation measures for individual household members within the home

Staying at home for individuals and households

Social distancing

Shielding the extremely vulnerable from coronavirus

The guidance also sets out how to maintain safe social distance within the home if living with a vulnerable person, with children, pets and contains information for mothers breastfeeding. There is general advice on cleaning, hygiene, waste disposal, laundry and how to get better at home.

Islanders can find information regarding medical advice if illness becomes worse, by contacting your GP or the helpline on +44 (0) 1534 445566. In the case of an emergency, dial 999 and let the operator know about any coronavirus symptoms.

Work and business

Work should be undertaken from home whenever possible.

People engaged in work that is designated as being essential to the safe running of the Island during this time are permitted to travel to and from their place of work when necessary. Social distancing and good hygiene must be practised at all times.

Advice for businesses operating during Stay at Home restrictions

Essential and critical workers

Essential workers are people engaged in work that is essential to the continued safe running of the Island during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Advice for businesses operating during Stay at Home restrictions

Critical workers are a smaller sub-set of essential workers in especially critical roles. 

If they are parents and cannot make arrangements for their children to be looked after at home, are being offered school or nursery places by government as a last resort. 

Critical workers and childcare

A further, very small subset of essential workers may need to travel into Jersey:

  • Health and care workers arriving into Jersey since Sunday 22 March are required to self-isolate (like most travellers), and a risk assessment process is then undertaken by the Health and Community Services department to determine whether it is safe for them to leave isolation to go to work.
  • Other essential workers arriving into Jersey since Friday 20 March are asked to self-assess whether it is really necessary for them to work on-site or whether they can isolate for 14 days like most travellers (for example, working

Weddings and funerals

Following a review by the Competent Authority Minister on Friday, it was decided that weddings booked from 30 March to 30 June will not be permitted to go ahead, apart from in special circumstances such as where one or both individuals are subject to end of life care, including COVID-19. 

Funerals are permitted to take place, although these may only be attended by the immediate family, and social distancing must be observed between people from different households.

 

  
26/03/2020Update from Sadie Le Sueur-Rennard, Connetable of St Saviour

Over the course of this week, I was made aware by our recycling Partner "St Helier" that there has been a significant increase of contaminants such as cleaning wipes, tissues, picked up on our recycling collections. This poses a significant a health risk to St Saviours and St Heliers employees and, I therefore regret to inform our parishioners that I have made the decision with St Helier to take effect from the Friday 27 March 2020 to suspend our recycling service until further notice.

I want to assure our Parishioners that the refuse services (black Bags) will still be continuing as normal for now.

I would like to assure my parishioners that I will be working hard to recommence our service as soon as possible safe to do so, and ask for understanding in this difficult time our island is experiencing.

Stay safe, protect your loved ones and be positive.

25/03/2020Recycling Services – Contamination level increases 

​We are experiencing a significant increase in the volume of household waste as more parishioners work from home and receive more packages delivered directly to home addresses. We ask that parishioners continue to place their waste in appropriate bins for collection on normal days.

**********************

We have been informed by our recycling partner "Parish of St Helier" that due to the rising number of parishioners working from home and the high number of packages being delivered, there has been a considerable increase of waste such as used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths which are raising contamination the recyclable items.

*** Please take extra care to not include food waste, tissues and other contaminants with the recyclable waste.***

24/03/2020Coronavirus (Covid-19) – what we’re doing

Coronavirus advice and information for Parishioners and businesses

Coronavirus (Covid-19) – what we’re doing

In response to the challenges of Coronavirus, Government’s latest guidance and in the best interests of protecting our parishioners, volunteers, visitors and staff from a coronavirus outbreak, along with a number of workforce shortages to critical areas of our service, we have made the decision to close the Parish Hall Building as of Lunchtime Today (23.03.2020).

Parish Administration (our buildings) & St Saviour Community Support Group Services

  • Office buildings will be closed to the public but the office is still operating as normal (08:45-15:45).
  • We are accessible by telephone on 735864 or by e-mail at  stsaviour@poss.gov.je.
  • Online Services such as Rates, Driving Licenses (apart from provisionals) and electoral can be completed online. Please visit My Parish Online for more information.
  • Any other queries may be left in the letterbox which will be dealt with on a daily basis.
  • St Saviour Community Support Group & Helpline for the vulnerable on 07797737480 and the Parish Hall on 735864.
  • Honorary Police Services – based on medical advice, officer availability has greatly reduced, therefore officer availability may be affected at times, however, Duty Centenier phone is available 24/7. Parish Hall enquiries have been cancelled until further notice.

Committees, public meetings/events & church services

All public meetings and civic engagements have been cancelled until further notice, including Road Committee meeting, Rates Assessors & Honorary Police meetings, Rates surgeries, and other working social groups have also been suspended.

Controlled measures will be put in place for upcoming services, and we are working closely with funeral directors to try as far as possible to enable funerals to continue to take place.

Our church and our lovely Rector Peter Dyson and his team, confirmed; "we have decided that the church remains open and available for individual worship or as a refuge for thought and reflection. We, as a Church want to let our Parishioners know that they are not alone." Peter is very happy to speak with you and give support to any parishioner who wishes to contact him on 736679 or pwdyson@btinternet.com.


We will continue working to minimise disruption to our services, also to work hard to retain as many services as possible in line with Government of Jerseys guidelines. We know that changes to our services are frustrating at any time, but we have to prioritise our services in what is an unprecedented situation.

We’d like to thank Parishioners for their support and understanding. #Stay safe.

20/03/2020All arrivals in Jersey required to self-isolate for 14 days

With effect from 00:01 on Friday 20 March, the Government of Jersey is introducing new guidance for all travellers arriving in Jersey, wherever they began their journey. This includes the UK, Guernsey, Europe and the rest of the world.

The guidance is that all travellers arriving in Jersey must now self-isolate for 14 days. This is regardless of whether they are displaying flu-like symptoms or not.

  • Solo travellers, who live alone, should immediately go into self-isolation
  • A family or group travelling together should ALL immediately go into self-isolation
  • Where a solo traveller is returning to a shared or family home, ALL members in that home should immediately go into self-isolation

During the self-isolation period of 14 days, anyone who develops flu-like symptoms should call the helpline.

People are advised not to travel to the Island unless they have the ability to self-isolate for a full 14 days in Jersey.

Arriving passengers who are non-symptomatic can, where absolutely necessary, use public transport for the short journey (maximum 1 hour) to travel directly from arrival to their home, whilst observing social distancing advice. They must then follow the self-isolation rules. They can also use their own transport, or travel with an individual collecting them, again subject to observing social distancing advice and cleaning the vehicle after use. Passengers should travel directly to their homes and not visit any shops during the journey.

Transport will be provided for any symptomatic travellers.

The measure does not apply to essential workers coming to Jersey, as they should not affect our overall containment strategy and their presence in Jersey is very important to help us to keep the Island running. If essential workers develop symptoms of coronavirus within 14 days of travel they must self-isolate and self-refer. Any essential worker who has been in contact with any confirmed COVID-19 individual abroad must self-isolate for 14 days. Essential workers are also advised to actively limit the frequency of travel into and out of the Island.

Medical advice has been updated and is constantly under review. This is based on the latest data.

Islanders are advised to only travel off-Island if it is truly essential, such as for medical care, to provide care for vulnerable dependents and for essential business that can’t be undertaken remotely by electronic or other means.

Anyone returning from anywhere abroad with symptoms of coronavirus should immediately self-isolate and self-refer by calling the helpline on +44 (0) 1534 445566.

The line is open every day from 8am to 8pm.

  
19/03/2020Connétables recommend you phone or email your Parish
 
Connétables say it is business as usual at Parish Halls but recommend you phone or email your Parish so they can deal with your enquiry. Contact details are on the Parish's home page.


This follows best practice advice and guidance to reduce the spread of the virus. The Parish can post any forms or leaflets you need and there are online services to renew a full driving licence, submit a rates return or to change a name and address.

 


Parish Hall Enquiries are likely to be deferred but individuals will be notified of the arrangements.

Update: 12:10 PM, Monday 16 March 2020

 
Social distancing advice for over 65s

Social distancing means limiting unnecessary contact with people outside of your household unless absolutely essential

We are currently recommending this to over 65s who are not essential for the running of the Island's services should they wish to continue carrying out their roles.

For those 65 year olds who do chose to adhere to social distancing, when not in the home, they should keep to a distance of 1 metre (3 feet) from others. Therefore, may need to avoid large public gatherings where this is not possible.

If you work, or are not at home, you should avoid using public transport during peak hours unless essential.


 

If Parishoners are concerned they may have symptoms of Coronavirus, they should contact the local helpline on 01534 445566 – the line is open from 08:30 am to 11 pm daily and if it is busy, you can leave a message and your call will be returned.
