  4. Cancer charities 'can do more together'

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    The chairman of a Guernsey cancer charity has said local organisations are working more closely than ever before to achieve their shared goals.

    Peter Atkinson is from the Guernsey Society for Cancer Relief, which aims to provide financial assistance to cancer sufferers and their relatives.

    He said cancer charities in Guernsey could achieve better results by co-operating, as the society had done with another charity, the Pink Ladies, in sharing the cost of wigs they provided to people who needed them after cancer treatment.

  5. FAB link project 'not approached about possible public vote'

    BBC News Online

    The management team of the FAB link power project has not been approached by the States of Alderney regarding a public vote, a spokesman for the project says.

    The States will put forward a vote to the public which, if followed by States members, could affect the future of the project if the vote says a majority of people do not support it.

    FAB project development manager Chris Jenner said: "The FAB Project is currently involved in negotiations with the States of Alderney and their advisors about the existing option agreement between the two parties.

    "We believe the project will result in significant long-term benefits for the people of the island. These include world-class internet connectivity for islanders via our inter-connector infrastructure, with the benefits this would bring to the local economy."

  6. Highlands College receives 'highest degree results to date'

    BBC Radio Jersey

    Students from Jersey's Highlands College are celebrating their highest degree results to date, receiving 79 degrees in 11 different subjects.

    The qualifications were awarded by the University of Plymouth and London South Bank University.

    Some 37% of students achieved first class honours, compared to with 24% in the UK in 2016.

    Ben Bennett, head of higher education at Highlands College, said: "We are proud to be working with many learners who will be the first in their family to gain a university degree."

  8. Aurigny warns of fog disruption on Wednesday

    Guernsey States-owned airline Aurigny is warning of potential disruption due to fog expected throughout Wednesday.

    A spokesman said: "We are still planning to operate as normal at this stage. However, with the possibility of poor visibility, we want to give passengers, due to fly tomorrow, the change to move their booking for free.

    "They can move onto an earlier flight this evening or to another flight over the next three days."

  9. Cricket: Guernsey beat Jersey for first inter-insular win

    BBC Sport Online

    Guernsey have won the women's cricket inter-insular for the first time, beating a youthful Jersey side by 23 runs at the KGV this afternoon.

    Playing in a Twenty20 format, the Sarnians were bowled out for 123, though skipper Katie Watson took three wickets to restrict Jersey to just 100.

    "We had 24 players at one session a couple of weeks ago, so we're possibly looking at having a couple teams and that would be great. We're trying to develop the young girls on the island," said Guernsey coach Lucas Barker.

  10. Blood donation rules could change in Jersey

    BBC Radio Jersey

    Rules governing who can give blood in Jersey could be changed following a review in the UK.

    As part of law changes relating to people's sexuality, the UK Government hopes to increase the supply of blood available across the country.

    Blood donation

    At the moment, gay and bisexual men can only donate blood 12 months after they last had sex.

    The law was introduced in an attempt to stop the spread of Aids and other infections from contaminated blood. But the UK Government said recent research had shown that period could be safely reduced to three months.

    Equality campaign groups said it was a step forward in making an inclusive society.

    A spokesman for Jersey's Health and Social Services Department said the island had similar restrictions to the UK, but would be reviewing its guidelines in the light of the change in policy.

    The change comes into effect in the UK at the start of 2018.

  12. Alderney FAB vote 'not legally binding' to States members

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    Alderney residents could have the ultimate say on whether the island supports the controversial FAB link project.

    The island's Policy and Finance Committee intends to put forward a public vote in the form of a plebiscite.

    A plebiscite is similar to a referendum but is not legally binding, so politicians in Alderney could disregard the will of the public.

    Deputy Chairman of Policy and Finance Tony Barnes said it was up to States members, but he would follow the public's lead.

    BBC Sport Online

    Jersey suffered a heavy six-wicket loss to Scotland in their Under-19s World Cup qualifier at Grainville today.

    Neil MacRae's side were all out for just 58 runs after winning the toss and batting first, and though Scotland were 36-4 at one stage, they reached the target with more than 36 overs to spare to condemn Jersey to a second defeat in the opening two days of the tournament.

    Jersey v Scotland

    "We just had to bat tight, and we played a few loose shots which obviously cost us," captain Harrison Carlyon told BBC Radio Jersey.

    "Everybody will have a rest tomorrow and then we're just going to come hard, like we did in the first game."

  19. Access to public information law 'strengthened' in Guernsey

    Rob England

    BBC News Online

    People in Guernsey's access to public information has been "enhanced", according to the States.

    After a review of the Access to Public Information Code of Practice, which allows information requests to be made of the government, the Policy and Resources Committee has agreed new steps to "strengthen" the code.

    The further agreed steps were:

    • All access to public information questions and responses will be published on the States website: gov.gg
    • Work will be carried out to promote awareness of the code across the public service
    • Work will be carried out to promote awareness of the code with the general public
    • The Chief Information Officer will be tasked with reviewing any decision where an exemption has been used under the code

    States of Guernsey Chief Information Officer Colin Vaudin said the code's purpose was to provide "transparency" in government, and the additional changes would improve this.

    He added, where "inconsistencies" were found between government departments with regards to holding back information, an internal review process would be put in place to address this.
