The States begins its first sitting of 2013 today and the first item on the agenda, and one which could occupy a lot of its time, is the Financial Transformation Programme.
Once members have dealt with these proposals from the Treasury and Resources Department they’ll move on to discuss the Health and Social Services Departments ‘2020 Vision’ report.
We’ll have summaries of the meeting in tomorrow’s Press.
Following on from today’s lead story about how non-British nationals who are found guilty of petty crimes could be deported in future, we’ll be getting reaction from non-British residents of the island and representatives of the various communities.
La Houguette School is holding an open day today, aimed at teaching parents about how maths is being handled by the school. We’ll be going up later to see how it’s going.
We’ll also be paying a visit to the Priaulx Library, where old documents discovered by workmen during the renovation of the former Gabriel’s shops in Fountain Street are being handed over.
Work is being done on the toilets at Cambridge Park so we’ll be finding out more about that, and also why Royal Navy vessel HMS St Albans is in local waters today.
Guernsey has a new male tenpin bowling champion, and in tomorrrow’s sports section there’s a report on how he earned his crown during the recent Island Championships.
Weather permitting there’s a Priaulx League match between Bels and Rangers at The Track tonight, with kick-off at 7.30.
But whatever the weather, the Legis basketball league game between XTFL and Le Mont Saint 2 will go ahead at Beau Sejour, starting at about 8.55.
