Over the last few weeks a young artist from Blanchelande School has been back and forth at the GSPCA to help provide a stunning back drop to our conservation area.

Hemu Khankashi from year 11 has helped provide a stunning mural on a wall facing the pond, picnic area and Poison Garden at the GSPCA.

The GSPCA would like to say a huge thank you to Herm Island and Jono Bailey who have recently helped us care for some of our trees on site at the GSPCA.  

Jono is a tree surgeon and from Herm Island we kindly were able to borrow fuel and a chain saw.

Jono lived in Herm for over 20 years and also worked on the stunning and pretty island so many love to visit.

When Herm island heard about the work needing to be done at the GSPCA they wanted to help out and kindly allowed Jono to borrow the chainsaw.
