St Peter Port parishioners are being given the opportunity to voice their opinions and ideas at an open morning to be held on Saturday 16 January at the Constables’ Office.
The morning, that will start at 10am and conclude at 12 noon, is designed to encourage parish residents to contribute their views on the Douzaine’s focus and activities during 2021.
Douzenier Mary McDermott said that in addition to any specific issues or concerns parishioners should take the opportunity to highlight which of the parish activities they perceive to be the most important and / or urgent during 2021.
“We really hope that parishioners take this opportunity to tell us what they think so that we are better able to represent them.
“Topics can cover a range of activities such as the appearance and cleanliness of St Peter Port, refuse collection and the maintenance of our floral displays and hedges. Or perhaps their interest lies within our communications; do they find the parish magazine, Townie, relevant, do we need to engage more through social media.
“All in all, what do you think?” she said.
Newly elected constable Zoe Lihou, who will also be at the open morning, said.
“The douzaine is here to represent the views of the parishioners. We want St Peter Port residents to have a voice and an intrinsic role in the business of the parish. Our message is clear, we are here to serve you, please let us do this by getting involved.”
