• Bring to fruition the sheltered housing/retirement homes project.
• Press for traffic calming measures particularly in the ‘village’ area near the Parish Church and other hotspots.
• Improve communications with parishioners by and initiate a “Welcome Pack” for new residents of our parish.
• Ensure that the Parish Hall is the centre of our parochial social and cultural life.
• Work with the Rector and churchwardens to improve the parking facilities for visitors to the Church and Caldwell Hall.
• Be available to all parishioners at all reasonable times.
• Provide strong and vibrant representation in the States in the interests of St Clement parishioners.
• Continue to oppose indirect taxations such as the Goods and Services Tax.
• Maintain the campaign for a general election with all States Members being elected on the same day.
• Work to maintain the parish rate as low as possible without curtailing the services parishioners have a right to expect.
• With the support of parishioners, develop a kerbside recycling scheme.

Maureen Hamel, who originally nominated Len Norman as a Deputy of the parish 25 years ago, put his name forward again last night as the new Constable. Mrs Hamel said that Mr Norman had represented the parish as a Deputy for 12 years and had gone on to serve as a Senator for a similar length of time.
His political career had included the presidencies of Social Security, Harbours and Airport, Housing, and Education.
Despite a busy and demanding political life, his involvement with the parish had included being a roads inspector, treasurer of St Clement’s Battle of Flowers Association, and he was currently management committee chairman of Le Squez Youth Club and patron of St Clement’s Sports Club.
