LIVINGROOM LAUNCHES CLOS DU JARDIN, ELEVEN BRAND NEW HOUSES

Livingroom is delighted to offer this truly stunning development of eleven brand new houses as Sole Agent.

Constructed by a highly regarded local developer, Clos du Jardin has been cleverly designed and beautifully appointed with contemporary flair and fastidious attention to detail - boasting the highest levels of insulation, low energy LED lighting and up-to-the-minute electric Ecostor heating systems, which all attribute to low running costs and an eye on the future.

Situated on Mares Pelles Lane, within easy access to nearby amenities and Northern beaches, the development enjoys quiet yet convenient living.

JODIE WEBBER & THE ELEANOR FOUNDATION

Our Jodie has recently been to Tanzania with a Guernsey charity and her visit was truly a life-changing experience for the residential sales co-coordinator.

Jodie visited the Kagera region in Tanzania; an area heavily affected by AIDS and, as a result, has very high numbers of AIDS orphans.

She travelled there as part of the Eleanor Foundation, a Guernsey charity that was established in 2012 in memory of Jodie's family friend, Ellie Carey, who was killed while cycling to university in London in 2011.

WHEN IS A NEWS STORY NOT A NEWS STORY?

Sadly we have felt compelled to repost an item from our news blog from 2012. Two years on and it appears that in such a changing world some people are clearly left unable to embrace those who actively seek it.

I have been giving some thought to what actually makes a news story. Sometimes I read things and wonder just how it was decided that this is "news" while something else which doesn't get a look in is deemed not to be worthy. Naively I suppose I always thought the strength of the story and its relevance to the readership were the only criteria for what gets published. Recent experience has toughened me up somewhat. It appears that there is a whole load of bias, subjectivity and commercial considerations when deciding what is a news story.

With newspapers bemoaning the rise of social media (and the subsequent damage to their advertising revenues) you would think the thing that would continue to draw people to their product would be strong, community-focused news. If the printed media is concerned about the rise and rise of social media surely getting behind news in our island is the way to go? Apparently not.
