Les Fieillets Jèrriais

Mai 2009


Salutâtions tout l’monde. Au mais d’Avri i’y’avait Êté, et à ch’t heu S’tembre! Thank you to all those who attended last month’s meeting. We discussed the rather impossible situation regarding attendance at La Fête Nouormande in Guernsey because their arrangements seem to make it very costly for 10 minute performances for each language. Partaking of evening refreshments would mean stopping overnight with no events on the Sunday…again costly. Lé Congrès and l’Assembliée are still trying to resolve the situation.
Contributions on La Vie Militaithe were started for Les Nouvelles Chroniques du Don Balleine. The subject content can be on any aspect of military life but must be submitted by May 9th please to L’Office du Jèrriais.
We also read through four poems for consideration as presentations at the Eisteddfod but delayed a decision as the one we thought best was probably the most difficult for us.
Apart from the usual mispronunciations, one fine one being ‘La Croysry’ for La Croiserie, a curious heading by Jersey Heritage occurs on a beautifully produced information board at Rozel Harbour, entitled ‘La (sic) Couperon’ repeated in the text……..another one through the net?
Our next meeting will be held on Wed. 6th. May, 8.00pm at La Société in the A.M. Room to refine our compositions and if necessary to practise our poem for La Fête…….or start on our Eisteddfod piece!
À la préchaine,

John Clarke (Président)
Ralph Nichols (Ségrétaithe).
