The winner of our Love Your Parish competition is Sophie Savident. Many congratulations, Sophie!
Guest judge, Deputy Heidi Soulsby MBE, Chair of the Douzaine Liaison Group, read through all 50 entries and felt Sophie’s idea to make her parish of Castel even better stood out as simple, practical and impactful.
Sophie has won a £50 voucher for brunch at Muse Cafe after entering the competition when she visited the Women in Public Life stand at the Government House Charities Fete on 26 June 2021.
On Monday, Sophie showed Shelaine from Women in Public Life around the nature trail at the back of La Mare de Carteret school to see how stagnant and overgrown the stream has become.
In her childhood Sophie remembers the area being full of wildlife and she’d love to see the ducks and dragonflies return.
Together Sophie and Shelaine visited the Castel Douzaine Room to take advice from the parish staff team as to who to contact to discuss clearing the stream. Sophie will be following up those ideas and we’ll keep you posted as to how she gets on.
