A very busy week with visits to the Fire and Rescue Service, Jersey Field Squadron and the Prison.  I was impressed with the total professionalism in all three departments and the commitment of the people involved.  Despite the challenges presented by the ongoing requirements to reduce spending there remains a real “can do” attitude.

Why did the State’s attempt to purchase Lime grove fail? What caused the delay? Who should take responsilbilty? There are many more questions to be answered but we must not lose sight of the fact that we urgently need premises for a new Police station … The real question should be; Why have we allowed […]
