Commemorative Stone Unveiled At Catel de Lecq In Jersey
The commemorative stone and interpretation board on Jersey’s north coast has been unveiled!
The unveiling took place at the earthworks at Catel de Lecq, overlooking Greve de Lecq to acknowledge the financial support given by Insurance Corporation who have funded work to improve the habitat structure of the land as part of their 25th anniversary in the Channel Islands in 2007.
The interpretation board outlines the important facts about this noteworthy location and the partner organisations involved in this successful project.
Peter Walpole, Chairman of Insurance Corporation says:
“This is a significant site in Jersey and we are delighted to have played our part in ensuring that it can be enjoyed by future generations. Back in 2007 we noted that a great deal of work needed to be undertaken to rescue the site and our donation of £25,000 has helped enhance wildlife habitats, assist with archaeological work and maintain a beautiful area for islanders to visit.
Much of Jersey’s north coast has important coastal heathland habitats which have been threatened by the proliferation of bracken and scrub. The site was very overgrown so it is wonderful to see the original structure reappear and indigenous flora and fauna return to the site.”
Deputy Steve Luce, Minister for the Department of the Environment says:
“This is a great example of a hugely successful public – private partnership, one that shows how, by working together, we can achieve real sustainable projects for Jersey’s environment.”
Insurance Corporation funded the work to improve the habitat structure of the land as part of their 25th anniversary in the Channel Islands in 2007, with a donation of £25,000.
We have worked closely with other partner organisations to develop a management plan that focuses on enhancing the ecology, archaeology and understanding for the general public.
