Jersey Alzheimer's Association needs volunteers to help out at the weekly 'Forget-me-not' Cafe at Clinique Pinel which the charity runs in partnership with HSSD.

The Forget-me-not Cafe is open every Wednesday between 1.30pm and 4pm and is for patients on Beech Ward who have been admitted for assessment or respite, and residents of Rosewood House, the permanent Health & Social Services residence for people living with dementia.

The Cafe gives patients, residents and their visitors the opportunity to get together and meet friends in a relaxed environment, enjoy refreshments provided by the charity, and participate in various activities if they wish.

Please contact our Drop-in/Office in Hilgrove Street, St Helier on 01534 723519 if you would be interested in volunteering at the Forget-me-not Cafe. Thank you.

Thursday 25th June, the Birmingham Botanical Gardens played host to this year’s prestigious Chartered Institute of Ecology & Environmental Management (CIEEM) Awards. A day to celebrate excellence in the fields of ecology and environmental management, honouring individuals, organisations and projects that demonstrate exemplary and inspirational best practice in their industry, with previous winners including Sir David Attenborough.

Since 2000 the beautiful coastal landscape of Plémont has been blighted by a run down holiday camp and numerous redevelopment proposals spurring The National Trust for Jersey to begin a campaign to return this site to nature. Between an impressive 10,300 strong petition to the Chief Minister of The States of Jersey calling for the site to be acquired for the benefit of the Island, a 7,000 strong demonstration held in St Ouen’s Bay, volunteers, local politicians, corporate sponsors, local media coverage and fund raising of an impressive £8,150,000, the Trust acquired the site on the 25th July 2014. Since their success, the Trust has cleared the site of buildings, began landscape works to enhance the wildlife value and public accessibility by creating species-rich heathland. Their hard work was rewarded by winning the NGO Impact Award, sponsored by Atkins, in this year’s prestigious CIEEM Awards ceremony.

The National Trust for Jersey CEO Charles Alluto commented, “The National Trust for Jersey is truly delighted that its Love Plémont Campaign has been awarded the NGO Impact Award from CIEEM for 2015. For our project to be recognised on a national scale by some of Britain’s leading ecologists and environmentalists is an enormous tribute to everyone who has helped us in our efforts to safeguard Plémont for the benefit of the Island. This award will also serve to inspire us in our continuing efforts to protect Jersey’s beautiful coastline.”
