A greener Parish? Some interesting thoughts
by Anne May

We are increasingly being reminded of the risks of global warming and the need to reduce our carbon footprint in order to protect the environment for future generations.
St Brelade parishioners have the ideal opportunity to make a small contribution to the cause by shopping within the parish rather than making the journey into St. Helier. Popping to the local shops is an energy efficient alternative to joining the traffic queue into town then either searching for on-street parking or negotiating a multi-story car park. Kinder on the pocket too!
Of all the out-of-town parishes St Brelade is the most well endowed with retail outlets of almost every kind. Indeed, this parish boasts a shopping centre second only to St. Helier. Les Quennevais, Red Houses and Centre Point offer a range of shops where almost all of the everyday purchases can be made: groceries & fresh produce, pharmacy items, stationery, greeting cards, fresh flowers, clothes, household items, toiletries & beauty products, post office & banking facilities, hairdressers, doctors, dentists & veterinary services; the list goes on.
The beautiful village of St. Aubin also accommodates a variety of establishments. Some provide the daily basics while others are a little more diverse in their wares. The scenery alone makes this corner of the island well worth a visit.
A wander around the parish will reveal a number of additional opportunities to purchase local produce, from pork to freshly harvested vegetables, or to pick up the forgotten newspaper or loaf of bread.
With the shopping done and dusted what better way to relax than with a tasty meal or snack. St. Brelade is home to a host of eateries offering morning coffee, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, or just a quick ice-cream, a cup of tea or something a little stronger. We truly are lucky - Jersey’s ‘greenest’ Parish?
