  1. A wheel-y good way to welcome 2019

    BBC Radio Jersey

    While you're toasting in the New Year - spare a thought for two Jersey men who will only be half way through a charity cycle challenge at midnight.

    Steve Hayes and Peter Wright are cycling around Les Quennevais sports track for 24 hours.

    They started at midday on 31 December and are due to finish on 1 January.

    They're raising money for Macmillan Jersey after a close member of Steve's family was diagnosed with cancer.

  2. New Year's Eve firework safety advice for pet owners

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    Animal welfare experts at the GSPCA are warning owners to watch out for their pets as 2018 ends with a bang.

    The charity says that it's not aware of any fireworks parties planned tonight but says people can take steps to protect and comfort their animals in case there are some nearby.

    Steve Byrne, GSPCA manager, said simple solutions include not taking dogs or ponies for a walk after dark; bringing rabbits or guinea pigs indoors; and letting neighbours know if you are planning to let off fireworks so they can protect their pets too.

  4. JT customers to get disruption compensation

    BBC Radio Jersey

    JT customers affected by service problems twice in the last week will get compensation, the utility has confirmed.

    The company has apologised and is investigating why the network went down on Sunday and on 27 December.

    It said customers would see a refund in their January bills which would take the form of a week's free landline rental and, for broadband customers, a waiver on charges for data use in excess of broadband bundles.

    Quote Message: The two incidents were unrelated technical issues, and we will now undertake a full investigation to isolate the exact root cause of each one so that we can make sure it isn't repeated. Needless, to say we will be monitoring the network very closely indeed over the coming days."

  6. Police hope all 999 calls answered faster after staff move

    BBC Radio Jersey

    A Jersey police sergeant says he hopes the island's emergency services will respond to 999 calls more quickly once they are all answered in the same place.

    Ambulance and fire service call handlers will move into the police station in Green Street from late January.

    Sgt Paul Kemp, of Jersey States Police, said it was important all emergency services worked together as "seconds can save lives".

    He also highlighted the range of calls that staff had to deal with.

    Quote Message: We can have the most unbelievably terrifying calls that we really have to deal with at that moment; to call recently, for example, where somebody's takeaway was late and they want us to deal with the company." from Sgt Paul Kemp Jersey States Police

  7. Phone engineers working to keep disruption 'to a minimum'

    BBC Radio Jersey

    Phone engineering teams will be working with its suppliers to keep further disruption to a minimum after earlier problems, JT says.

    The Jersey telecom firm said all of its services had been "fully restored" after some people experienced further problems with their landlines just days after a similar outage affected phones and broadband in some areas of the island.

    JT has apologised for the latest issues.

    The utility firm had also asked customers to call its mobile number, while firefighters warn community alarms - which allow vulnerable islanders to call for help at the touch of a button - might not work.

    BBC Radio Jersey

    Dave Cabeldu

    A Jersey environmentalist who campaigns to protect the island's shoreline said he was "very moved" after being honoured by the Queen for his work.

    Dave Cabeldu started Save our Shoreline 28 years ago to highlight bad environmental practices and the need to protect the coastline from pollution and development.

    Mr Cabeldu will receive an MBE for services to Jersey's heritage and environment.

    "I'm very moved by the whole thing," he said.

    "I am also delighted that the work of our organisation - which is now 28 years of being in existence - has been recognised by people who otherwise perhaps wouldn't have known very much about it."

  9. Rugby stalwart surprised by Queen's honour

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    The co-president of Guernsey's top rugby club said his MBE for services to the sport in the island was completely unexpected.

    Adrian Le Page

    Adrian Le Page previously served as Guernsey Raiders' chairman and has been a vital part of the growth of rugby in Guernsey, according to his peers.

    "You don't do these jobs for awards. I haven't been doing this Chairman, president (positions) to get this award," he said.

    "The Rugby Union often do special awards for volunteers - but most of the volunteers, they don't do it for an award, they do it because they want to do it. And I'm the same."

  10. Charity volunteer 'just doing the right thing'

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    Pat Holland

    A Guernsey woman honoured for her work helping young people in Romania says she's always striven to do the right thing.

    Patricia Holland said her BEM for charitable services to Guernsey and Romania came as a surprise.

    Mrs Holland has helped the Friends of Romania for more than 20 years, sending clothing and bedding to a school for disabled children, an orphanage, and children's clinic.

    "I don't think anybody does it because of recognition themselves," she said.

    "You do it because you believe it's the right thing to do and you've been shown a way where you can do it."

  11. JT apologises for another landline fault

    BBC Radio Jersey

    There have been further problems with Jersey landlines - just days after a fault left homes and businesses without phone or internet connections.

    Jersey Electricity and the fire and rescue service both posted messages on social media on Monday morning about the latest issues.

    Firefighters warned community alarms - which allow vulnerable islanders to call for help at the touch of a button - may not have worked.

    On Friday, JT apologised after fixing a fault which knocked out landlines and broadband in some areas of the island.

    The company said the service has now been "fully restored".

  12. Charity worker: BEM 'reduced me to tears'

    BBC Radio Jersey

    A Jersey charity worker shed a tear when she found out she was being honoured by the Queen for her 30 years of work helping people with Parkinson's.

    Eileen Smith started raising money and awareness after her husband was diagnosed with the disease.

    Jersey's Lieutenant Governor told her she had been awarded a British Empire Medal.

    "It reduced me to tears, and I found it very difficult to speak to him," she said.

    "Now that it's public news, I think the realisation of what an honour it is sinks in."

  13. Aurigny 'best short-haul airline'

    Passengers board an Aurigny plane

    Aurigny has been rated by consumer magazine Which? as its number one short-haul airline.

    The rating is the result of customer responses to questions on punctuality, boarding, comfort, customer service and value for money.

    Norwegian Air was ranked fourth, Easyjet 11th and British Airways 15th.

    The loss-making Guernsey government-owned airline was praised by Which? for removing its "no-show" clause, which had meant your return journey could have been cancelled if you missed an outbound flight.

    Aurigny chief executive Mark Darby said: “We are thrilled to be rated number one in this survey, that is ultimately determined by our customers.

    "Whilst we may be a small airline, we pride ourselves on customer service and providing our customers with the best possible customer experience.”

  14. Weather: Cloudy with drizzle

    BBC Weather
