About this site

Piers and Lin du Pré bought their new Fleming 55 / 129, Play d'eau, in 2003.

She was berthed in Beaucette Marina, Guernsey in the Channel Islands at N49° 30’.197 W002° 30’.350 until she was sold in October 2021.

This site charts the thrilling adventures they had in her.

Post prostate

Having so enjoyed my stay in The Victoria Wing being thoroughly spoiled by the nursing staff and Chef Dave, I returned to take some pics of the team and Chef Dave’s food.

One thing leads to another

The pics were liked so much that they reached the eyes of my consultant, Mr Owen Cole, and Debbie Guillot, CEO of The Medical Specialist Group.

A meeting was arranged with Ms Guillot, her Deputy CEO, and the Communications and Marketing Manager.

The upshot is that du Pré Guernsey Ltd has been engaged as an advisor to the CEO’s team to re-design The Medical Specialist Group’s new web-site, and also that of The Victoria Wing.

That includes the design, branding, colours as well as new wording and photography. Exciting.

The Medical Specialist Group provides emergency and elective specialist medical services for the Bailiwick of Guernsey within the secondary health care framework of Guernsey, in partnership with the Health and Social Services Department.

The Plan is…

The plan is for the websites to go live in early September which will coincide well with our next trip to South Africa (more of this to come in another post!).

The emphasis of the new sites is to concentrate on patient care.

So maybe this is a good opportunity for me to give something back to the staff who gave so much to me when I had my prostate op.

Here are some of the pics…
