Looking forward to Arts Seafront Sunday in St Peter Port this weekend!
You’ll find us near the Town Church. Look forward to seeing you there.
Last Saturday saw the launch of Richard Fleming’s new collection of poetry, Stone Witness.
A good sized crowd at the Priaulx Library listened to Richard read a number of poems from the collection, including the title, Stone Witness, commissioned by the BBC for National Poets Day, and inspired by La Gran’mère du Chimquière, the statue-menhir which stands outside St Martins Church.
For more details of Richard’s new collection of poetry, please see Stone Witness.
Stone Witness has just arrived from the printers. And here is the author, Richard Fleming, reviewing the very first copy.

This eclectic new collection deals with themes of love and death, old and new gods, nostalgia for a vanished age and the challenge of life in the 21st Century.
The collection includes ‘Stone Witness’ (La Gran’mère du Chimquière), a poem about the relationship between Guernsey’s iconic granite figure and the islanders themselves, which was commissioned by the BBC for National Poetry Day in 2016.
We are planning a book launch at the Priaulx Library at 1pm on 13 May – more details to follow.

It is intended as a guide for those interested in G.B. Edwards’s classic Guernsey novel The Book of Ebenezer Le Page.
The booklet guides the reader around the main locations in the novel, as well as those associated with its author, G.B. Edwards.
Extensively illustrated with photographs, maps and quotes from relevant sections of the novel.
The author, Stephen Foote, worked closely with Edward Chaney on Genius Friend, his biography of G.B. Edwards.
The booklet is available in select outlets in Guernsey, as well as from our Online Store.
Last Thursday saw the official launch of our latest publication Guernsey As It Used To Be: A Tour of the Town in Victorian Times. There was a great turnout at the Priaulx Library, so thanks to everyone who came along.

This book, originally published in 1933, provides a fascinating insight into Guernsey, and in particular St Peter Port, during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It is packed with descriptions of the shops in town and the author’s reminiscences of the people who ran them.
Today a group of relatives and friends of G.B. Edwards gathered in Plumstead Cemetery, South East London to commemorate the centenary of the death of his step-sister Rose who died in 1917, whilst working as a ‘munitionette’ in Woolwich.
