Assembly of the accommodation for the construction workforce is proceeeding well, and island helpers are being recruited.

Camogli Healthcare Centre Update up to 28th November 2016

Latest Report from Clerk of Works Barry Davies

Offloading of the MV Glory is slow due to the heavy seas and winds we have had to endure the last weeks, we have about five days left for the offloading of the Glory plus the bad weather days. However, the contractors Galliford Try have about another ten days work in front of them with the materials on site.

I am pleased to report that the Galliford Try construction team are motivated, committed and well organised, they are busy assembling the man-camp which is their living quarters and offices and the units and components are of a high standard and they are doing a good job preparing the ground base and in assembling the man-camp and these units should be able to serve the island after the project is completed.

Island break-up day this year is on Tuesday 20th December and any islanders who volunteer for extra holiday work between 21st December - 12th January 2017 will be paid double normal pay, with flexible working allowed, but not on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day which will be holidays for all.
