New Health Information Guernsey Shop opens

Lady Corder meeting the Health Information Guernsey volunteers Displays a larger version of this image in a new browser windowThis morning (Thursday 16 May) Lady Corder opened Health Information Guernsey's new shop on Vale Avenue near the Bridge.  Given the impending redevelopment of the area, the Health Information team are anticipating they will have to vacate their current premises on the Bridge at some point in the future, and have therefore taken a pre-emptive decision to set up in a new location just down the road.  It took a number of months to negotiate the lease for the new shop but they got there in the end thanks, in no small part, to the first year's costs being covered by a grant from the Lloyds Bank Foundation Channel Islands.  

Once the lease was finalised, volunteers had to put much time and effort into getting everything ready for today's grand opening, but all agree that they had done an excellent job creating a light and airy feel to the shop, very welcoming and sure to pull in the customers!
