Les Fieillets Jèrriais

Févri 2002


Salutâtions tout lé monde; ch'est déja Févri, et acouo i'n'y'a d'la né- à cause du rêcauffîn d'l'atmosphéthe-j'crai! Please submit neologisms for global warming in the usual way! Our annual meeting successfully accomplished its agenda in the pleasant atmosphere of the Royal around a relatively secluded table. The annual report was made available to those present rather than being read out and last year's Committee agreed to stand for another year with J. Clark being elected as Treasurer. Thanks and appreciation for a successful year were extended to the Committee members who in turn recorded their thanks to all those who had made it possible. They not only came to the meetings but also attended functions, served the public at Fêtes, contributed to projects, sent us letters, advised and supported us and generally made time to help. All this increased our knowledge and helped to raise public awareness.

The meeting concluded with a discussion of the 2002 programme. It was agreed that emphasis should be on the completion of the first Anthology, the initial editing of the Jèrriais-English version of Albert Carré's Vocabulary and the preparation for La Fête Normande in June at Samarès Manor. However, each meeting will also include language sessions involving old and new words and using a mixture of methods and media, which will be colourful, amusing and not seriously academic!

Our next meeting will be held in the Arthur Mourant Room, La Société Jersiaise, Pier Road at 8.00pm on Wednesday, 6th February.

A la Préchaine,

Jayne Le B. Nichols (Présidente)
