07 July 2011

Labour politician and member of the House of Lords, Lord Thomas Pendry will begin a 4 day visit to the Island on Friday 8 July. 

Previously Shadow Minister for Sport and Tourism and currently President of the Football Foundation, Lord Pendry will meet with Chief Minister, Senator Terry Le Sueur, and Assistant Chief Minister, UK and International Relations, Senator Freddie Cohen, as well as with other ministers and with prominent members of the Island’s sporting community.

During his stay, Lord Pendry will also meet with Deputy Chief Minister, Senator Philip Ozouf, the Minister for Education, Sport and Culture, Deputy James Reed, and Economic Development Minister, Senator Alan Maclean. Also on the agenda will be meetings with Jersey Football Association President, Ricky Weir, and representatives of the Island Games Association, including chairman Steve Jacobs.

On Saturday 9 July, Lord Pendry will present the medals at the final of the Inter-Island Gymnastics Competition at Fort Regent, and on Monday 11 July, he will visit St Clements Football Club, whose new clubhouse was funded by the Football Foundation.

Senator Le Sueur commented, “We are most grateful to Lord Pendry for having represented Jersey in the House of Lords on tourism-related issues, such as the debate on air passenger duty, and we are pleased to have the opportunity to welcome him to the Island. Given Lord Pendry’s passion for sport, we are also pleased to be able to show him at first hand some of the excellent work that is being done here in a wide variety of sporting disciplines.”

Senator Cohen added, “We are delighted to welcome Lord Pendry to Jersey. I have met Lord Pendry previously and look forward to discussing issues of great importance to Jersey, including tourism and promoting our sporting participation at international events such as the Island Games and the Commonwealth Games.”
