Newsroom Live – 11 March, 2013
Monday 11th March 2013, 9:26AM GMT.
Unsurprisingly it’s the weather that is going to dominate the newsroom’s activities today, with the conditions likely to yield several stories for tomorrow’s paper, as well as preventing many others from happening.
With 10cm of snow expected during the day, sea ferries cancelled and the airport closed until at least midday, we’ll be keeping in touch with the disruption. There’ll be updates here on This is Guernsey and via our Twitter feed @GuernseyPress as and when we get them and tomorrow’s paper will have detailed reports on what’s taken place today.
The wind is expected to reach gale force 10 by the end of the day, and already trees have fallen throughout the island leading to chaos on the roads and we’ll have pictures of some of the problems tomorrow.
Many planned events have been called off for today already, and we are due to hear later on if today’s Eisteddfod Speech and Drama classes will be cancelled.
One thing we will be doing apart from reporting on the weather is catching up with Allister Carey of The Eleanor Foundation, who has appealed for bicycles to be donated. The bikes will be transported to the UK where they will be handed over to the Re-Cycle charity before being sent to Africa.
Following Guernsey FC’s victory in the FA Vase quarter-final on Saturday, tomorrow’s sports pages will be talking to their next opponents, Spennymoor Town, to get their thoughts on the game.
There’ll be news of the draw for the semi-final in the women’s hockey EH Vase tournament as well as a catch up with Jeff Stuart to find out how much interest there has been in the new Guernsey Football Academy.
