Knockaloe’s Future
Returned from the Jersey Conference at 5pm and almost straight down to Patrick for a meeting about the future of Knockaloe. This was a public meeting hosted by DEFA with a presentation from DEFA Minister Ronan. It was the third in a series and the culmination of a long work stream with consultation on Knockaloe’s future.

There was a good turnout and a number of valid observations particularly with regard to future use of the farm itself. There are some excellent plans for a Patrick Visitor Centre and footpaths around the site with plaques and varied views of how things used to be also linking the footpaths to the coastal way.

Expressions of interest will be invited next week via Chrystal’s so if you are interested in either looking at the proposals or maybe bidding for a lease then towards the end of next week give Chrystal’s a ring.

In the meantime I believe the site has great potential, as an addition to our tourist trail there are literally hundreds of thousands of people throughout the world who are related to people who where interned who form a reservoir of potential visitors as well as the general historic interest of the site where Pilates were conceived.
