The Fermain Tower Appeal
May 5, 2017 /
The National Trust of Guernsey’s fundraising launch for the refurbishment of the 18C Fermain Tower took place yesterday. Oliver Westgarth was on-site to talk through the plans to turn this historic tower at Fermain Bay into a unique holiday accommodation for islanders and visitors alike. We are assisting The National Trust of Guernsey with their aim of raising £200,000 to completely restore this heritage property for all to enjoy.
CCD has currently been working to make sure the Tower is water-tight and aired ready for the main construction to begin at the end of summer 2017. We were privileged to have His Excellency the Lieutenant‐Governor, Vice Admiral Sir Ian Corder, who is Patron of The National Trust of Guernsey, to officially launch the fundraising. Oliver showed him round the site and also took him to the top of the Tower to discuss the refurbishment and construction work needed for the Tower to open in summer 2018. Oliver was also on hand helping the media explore inside and learn about the history behind the Tower.
Fermain is a wonderful location and we want as many people as possible to experience a break in this unique setting. Please show your support for one of Guernsey’s iconic heritage buildings by donating here: http://www.nationaltrust.gg/fermain-tower-appeal/
