"Guernsey in the snow" Christmas
Living Streets (Guernsey) LBG has brought out a set of 8 Christmas cards which
depict scenes of Guernsey during the blizzard conditions last March. The Upper Parishes became quite magical with the
snow drifts and the trees heavy with snow. All the pictures were taken in St. Pierre du Bois and Torteval (mainly because
it was in walking distance of my home!
Packs of 8 different cards
will cost £5.99. We are very flexible regarding your requirements. You can choose just one card if you like
- 8 will also cost £5.99. Or you can buy individual cards for £1 each.
We will be selling direct to the public at the St. Martin's Farmer's Market and all our usual card stockists
should be holding the cards. If in doubt phone Pat on 01481 268088.

Guernsey Country Walks 2014 Calendar is out!
Living Streets has launched its new 2014 calendar which will be selling at the St. Martin's Farmer's Market
at Sausmarez Manor on Easter Saturday and throughout the year. Each month has a sketch map of a country walk which
uses mainly lanes and green lanes and takes around an hour. The photo has been taken on the walk. New this year
is the position of bus stops on the maps.
Calendars are already in some selected retail outlets such as
the Coach House Gallery, The Tapestry Centre in St. James, Martyn Guille's at the Little Chapel, Beekers on the Bridge,
Oatlands, Le Tricoteur at Fort Grey, the Guernsey Shop, Lexicon and the Press in Town. It will soon also
be in the major Museums and the Tourist information office.
Five new cards added to the set
Living Streets has added five new cards to its "Guernsey Country Walks" series of greeting cards.
Three of the new cards feature walks in the north of the island:
Beaucette Marina - exploring the network of Ruettes
Tranquilles between Beaucette and Bordeaux. You pass several quarries - remnants of Guernsey's granite and stone
quarrying industry. Nearby is the Neolithic burial mound Le Dehus.
Bordeaux Harbour - a walk around the harbour
and then taking the footpath up to Vale Castle and back. Perhaps followed by a cup of Woodies coffee!
- a walk around Pembroke Bay following the route of the Martello Towers - which were built to protect Guernsey against invasion
from France in 1778.
St. Martin's green lanes and cliff path where there are stunning views of the south coast
towards Petit Port. This card is linked to Les Douvres Hotel - a former 18th century manor house.
Finally, in the
heart of the island a circular walk through the parishes of St. Saviour, St. Andrew and Castel. This card is linked
to The Farmhouse Hotel and is slightly longer than other walks - about an hour and a half, but you can shorten it if you like.
We sell our cards directly to the public on the last Saturday of the month at the Sausmarez Manor Farmer's Market.
You can also purchase them from most tourist and card retail outlets. Individual cards are £1 each and they
also come in packs of 5 (£5) and 9 (£9) which make great presents.

Guernsey Country Walks greeting cards prove popular
Sales of our greeting cards are going well and in the first 4 months we have sold around 4,500
cards both directly to the public and through retail outlets.
We are extremely grateful to
Peter de Sausmarez for allowing us to sell the cards at his Farmers Market and not charging us for the space. We attended
the Farmers Market today (15th October) and made £117. The total sales from the three Farmers markets we have
attended (we do one a month) is now £388.
Future plans for the project include three new designs
next spring and a calendar for 2013.

Walks Greeting cards launched
Living Streets Guernsey LBG launched its new range of greeting
cards during the Photographic Festival event in the Old Quarter of St. Peter Port on 25th June.
cards are intended to celebrate Guernsey's beautiful countryside and, in particular, its Ruettes Tranquilles and green
lanes. Guernsey is well known for its beautiful cliff paths and coastal views but there is also some lovely countryside
in the centre of the island. Living Streets wants to encourage islanders and tourists to explore this lovely area.
The greeting cards depict a country scene on the front and inside there is a sketch map of a walk of about an hour
which is linked to a local pub, cafe, restaurant or hotel where walkers can have lunch or stop off for coffee or tea.
There are nine cards in the series - each one with a different walk. So far the walks are in the parishes
of St. Andrew, St. Pierre du Bois, Castel, Torteval and St. Saviour.
Pat Wisher, who designed the cards, and Val
Rowland manned a stall in the Old Quarter to show off the new cards. Between 2pm and 5pm 212 cards were sold and there
were many appreciative comments about the uniqueness of the cards.
The cards cost £1 each and they can be
purchased from St. Peter's Post Office, The Coachhouse Gallery, Beekers at the Bridge, Lexicon and The Press Shop in Town,
Guernsey Clockmakers at The Little Chapel and in the Guernsey Museums.
featured in the cards also will be stocking its own card: Fleur du Jardin Hotel, Bella Luce Hotel, Imperial Hotel, Longfrie
Inn, Last Post pub, Auberge du Val Hotel, Guernsey Pearl Centre, Le Chene Hotel.
If you would like more details
about the cards please contact Pat Wisher on 01481 268088 or firstname.lastname@example.org. There is also a document that you can download below which will show you each picture and an example of one
of the walks.
