Permanent home for G-JOEY - in Guernsey?

Posted Tue 15th March 2016 at 10:26

Alderney's best loved Trislander is set to find a permanent home at a Guernsey leisure and retail outlet.

St Sampsons-based Oatlands Village issued a statement with Aurigny last week announcing that ahome for G-JOEY was to be created during a revamp of the site.

Their plan to display the Trislander alongside his "friend" from Oatlands' playbarn, "Oaty", if and when their building plans are accepted by the States of Guernsey.

The six acre Oaklands attraction was acquired by a new owner in August.

Mark Darby, CEO of Aurigny, said in a statement: "Aurigny is delighted to have G-JOEY displayed at Oatlands Village. We were approached by the attraction's new owner, Chris Coles, late last summer with his vision for the redeveloped site. His enthusiasm for displaying Joey was infectious and we knew immediately that it was the perfect home for our aircraft. Islanders who love our Trislander will be able to visit whenever they want and the proposal to store Joey undercover is important because the aircraft must be protected from the elements."

The press release, which was not sent to any Alderney media, supplied details of the tourist attraction's plans for opening a second courtyard surrounded by three rural-style barns to house a state-of-the-art play barn, covered trampoline and play area, an interactive games facility, boutique playhouse or cinema and Joey's new home: "Joey's World".
