|We are now being offered a positive way forward for a 250 berth marina again at the east end of Braye Bay. A wise decision to keep commercial and pleasure boating apart as all serious parties have concluded.
May history not repeat itself. May our politicians – elected by the people of Alderney for the good of Alderney – have the confidence to realise the undoubted economic strength of such a development.
We are already aware of the usual social media rants from the vociferous minority (no more than a count on two hands). The future of Alderney is larger and more important than any one person.
Please may they understand that.
On the Inside
Apart from our monthly full Council meetings, we also meet regularly within our sub-groups despite the increasing use of email chat – and virtual meetings as in recent months. These smaller groups include air transport, sea transport, economic development and marina.
Our membership is the largest it has ever been. No matter whether a business is a sole trader, a small to medium size unit or a larger finance group, we are all equal within the eyes of Alderney.Members will have seen a marked increase in the number of emails received during the year. These include States notices, Chamber comment & Chamber surveys and, as always, we look forward to receiving back all thoughts, questions and comment that come to mind.
Our Council has really worked as one with all Council Members taking various responsibilities. We work on a voluntary basis and put in many many hours simply for the island we all enjoy and live on.
We are looking to draw up a list of members who would be happy to spend some time on an occasional basis when topics arise that fall out of the scope of Council members. Please help us with this. Just contact one of our Council or email on firstname.lastname@example.org
