Guernsey Government House

HE gets a step ahead!


Island Walk 2018

Due to a 'royal' diary clash, His Excellency has had to complete this year's Saffrey Rotary round the Island walk 11 days early as the actual date of the main walk is the 9th of June, the Queen's official birthday when Government House host an official reception in Her Majesty's honour.

Last year Sir Ian and Lady Corder completed their first island walk and Sir Ian enjoyed the event so much he vowed to try and do it every year for the rest of his tenure in the Bailiwick.  Unfortunately the schedule conflict this year meant that the only option was to do it early. He was joined by his youngest son, Captain Alex Corder on leave from his Army duties.

The day started off a little damp but soon brightened into a classically sunny Guernsey afternoon and the pair made good time around the coastal path.  Sir Ian commented that 'The Saffrey Rotary walk is a brilliant event that brings together people from all over the island and beyond to take on a significant personal challenge whilst raising funds for some extremely worthwhile causes.  I couldn't let it pass this year without getting involved just because of a diary problem'.
