05 August 2017 We need you help to choose a selection of films to show at the Mallard Cinema on the 24th September
Guernsey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (GSPCA)

On the 24th September we are holding a Fun Family Day, Car Boot Sale and Fun Dog Show at the Mallard Cinema and through the day the GSPCA takes over all 4 screens to show a selection of films which will be of your choice and we need your help. The films we are aiming to show will be for children and we need you to tell us what films you would like to come along to. This weekend we want your suggestions either on our facebook post or by email to stevejbyrne@gspca.org.gg and we will then review and post them on a survey from Monday 7th August. When they are posted you will have 5 days to vote and at 5pm on Friday 11th August voting closes and we will review the top choices and with the Mallard Cinema decide which films will be shown on the 24th September in aid of the GSPCA and the many animals in our care. There will also be a very exciting premier being shown and proceeds will also help the GSPCA.......more details coming soon............ Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "We are all very excited at the GSPCA to be working with the Mallard Cinema to be putting on a unique event for all the family on Sunday 24th September." "This weekend we are hoping the Guernsey community will give us suggestions for films to be shown as the Mallard are kindly allowing us to take over all 4 screens in aid of the many animals at the GSPCA." "My all time favourite film is the Lion King and it is films for children we are aiming for." "If parents can ask their little ones and then let us know suggestions we will add them to a survey which we will launch Monday morning and all will have until 5pm on Friday to vote for their favourites." "We will then review the top choices with the Mallard and advertise those that will be shown." "Sunday 24th September will be a full day of events as the Mallard have large fields and plenty of parking so we have planned stalls, fun dog show, car boot sale, games, some of the animals from the GSPCA and much more all to make a great day for the family." Daniel Phillips Mallard Cinema General Manager "The Mallard Cinema are proud to be supporting the GSPCA with this great event planned for the 24th September for all the family and their dogs." "Being a rescue dog owner myself I know all about the great work carried out by animal charities and at the mallard we want to help the GSPCA raise much needed funds for their vital work here in Guernsey." "All 4 screens at the Mallard will be showing films of the publics choice in aid of the GSPCA and we are looking forward having a great Family Fun Day, Fun Dog Show and Car Boot Sale in our grounds before the cinema showing so no matter what the weather there will be plenty to do and see through the day."

11 August 2017 Guernsey Sands Committee member and husband up for Pride of Guernsey 2017 Parents of the Year award
SANDS Guernsey

Guernsey Sands' Communications Officer and husband, Nicole and Rik Bromley, have been nominated for the #PrideofGuernsey 2017 Parents of the Year following the stillbirth of their son. Sandra Hooker nominated her daughter and son-in-law for the Christies Group-sponsored Parents of the Year Award with the following: “Richard and Nicole deserve being nominated due to their strength, love and compassion. Their initial task as parents was to arrange their first born son’s funeral. Completely broken they showed those around them how to cope. They sought support when needed but gave support back to many others – not least by becoming involved in SANDS Guernsey and Nicole continues to this day on their committee. Their second child Edie was born two years later but with a congenital cataract which had to be operated on in Southampton. She has undergone numerous examinations and operations in Guernsey, Southampton and now London at Moorfields Eye Hospital. Each visit being immensely stressful but the three of them cheerfully get on with it. Never out of their minds is Freddie – Nicole wrote on Father’s Day – “A daddy of two, one in his arms and the other only in his heart. Such a brave daddy who picks himself up every day to be the best daddy for Edie despite knowing he’s missing a son here on earth”. Richard and Nicole are not grieving alone and like others are getting on with life despite all, but I do think they deserve a very public pat on the back.” If you think Nicole & Rik deserve to be crowned Parents of the Year go to www.prideofguernsey.com
