Friday Night Football
An initiative by Dave Kennedy of the Jersey Football Association to introduce Friday Night Football at Les Qurennevais has proved a huge success. Many youngsters are reported to have said that the arrangements are just what thay have been wanting for a very long time. States Community Officers and the Parish Centeniers report that incidents of anti-social behaviour on Friday nights have dropped dramatically. A full report will be published in the next edition of ‘La Baguette’.

La Baguette: Volunteers required
The next edition of La Baguette is scheduled for distribution just before Easter. News stories have arriving on a regular basis, and articles have been promised by several prominent ‘St. Breladais’ including Senator Mike Vibert and former Deputies and Connetables Enid Quenault and Max de la Haye.
However, preparing the newsletter for distribution, specifically enveloping and address labelling, still depends on a small team of willing volunteers - and we could do with more. If you can afford a couple of evenings to help, please contact the Editor on 743276, or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
