We're delighted to be one of the sponsors of the renovation of a well-known Guernsey landmark - the Japanese Pavilion in Saumarez Park.
Known to many as the 'Duck House', it has stood derelict since being closed to the public in 2019, having been marked as unsafe for public use. The Rotary Club of Guernsey is leading a restoration project which aims to provide a lasting and sustainable legacy for the Pavilion.
Along with the John Ramplin Charity Trust, Butterfield Bank and the Constables of Castel, we are the main financial sponsors, with all of us keen to ensure the Pavilion remains an important part of our community and a place to be enjoyed by all for many years to come.
The structure is currently being built in Pauls Joinery's workshop, before being erected in place when landscaping has taken place. For the first time ever, the Pavilion will be accessed step-free, making it accessible for all.
We are hoping everything will be completed by September but in the meantime, you can follow along on social media by checking the hashtag #rotarypavilion
