Featured Article - Summer Of 2014
Well itís great to see we are having a hot summer here in the UK. Could this be another summer like 1976? Time will tell, but the signs are pretty positive. When the sun shines in Blighty, everyone seems to be in a better mood. Even the disappointment of our football results in the World Cup donít seem to deter us, nor did Andy Murrayís early departure from Wimbledon faze us. The good feel factor sunshine seems to spread amongst us is pure magic
The third largest Channel Island, Alderney is one of the rare unspoiled corners of Britain. With a population of a little under two and a half thousand, its reputation as a peaceful, relaxing getaway is matched only by the localsí reputation for warm welcomes and traditional jovial hospitality. Easily explored by foot the fascinating and beautiful Island is only one and a half miles wide by three and a half miles long and boasts a mild comfortable climate.
Like its neighbours, Guernsey and Jersey, Alderney is independently governed, but unlike the larger islands, and despite its proximity to mainland France (10 miles west of Normandy), it remains more or less entirely free from mainstream tourism. Remote as Alderney may be it is surprisingly easy to visit as it has its own harbour and airport with direct scheduled flights to and from the UK.
