First Channel Island wide community
What is believed to be the first Community website covering the whole of the
Channel Islands, was officially launched this week. The Island Life website,
www.islandlife.org is a large site featuring over 400 pages of information and 100
photographs covering all the Channel Islands and is rich in local content and information. The
project has taken around seven months to complete.
It is designed to be easy to navigate and should appeal to visitors and locals
alike, who are looking for information on anything from beaches, churches, places to visit, parks,
restaurants, schools, clubs, travel and other useful information, property, legal and Finance
Industry pages. There is also a comprehensive section covering the fascinating Constitution and
History of the Channel Islands and the claims and counter claims to their title by the French and
English over the centuries. We found the Channel Island official tourism sites complicated
and difficult to find information easily and wanted to bring together information about the islands
on one site."
It is also the only site to dedicate space for the children and youth of the
islands to contribute by way of poems, drawings and photographs. It will be looking for regular
contributors to the Night scene, Female and Male Scene pages. The site also gives an opportunity to
clubs, churches and charities and who do not yet have their own website to have pages on the site
free of charge.
