A Year in Sark
October 2010 to October 2011
By Sue Daly
From sheep racing and concerts to school plays and charity events, there’s always something going on in Sark. This book, the second in the series based on the ‘News from Sark’ feature on the official Sark Tourism web site, records the day-to-day life of the island from September 2010 to September 2011. There are the seasonal regulars like the Flower and Produce Shows and the Horse, Dog and Pet Show and new events such as the ‘Art for the Love of Sark’ project which brought some of the world’s best wildlife artists to the island. It’s also a year that saw the heaviest snowfall in living memory, a new ferry for our shipping company, an election, a by-election, a wealth of sports fixtures and visiting musicians from all corners of the globe. Lavishly illustrated with full colour photographs throughout, this book is the perfect answer to that much-asked question of ‘what do you do in winter?’ Most importantly, it reveals the strong sense of community that lies at the very heart of life in Sark.
96 pages, full colour. Available at various island outlets or order online. £10.95 plus postage.
