A diary with a difference…..

Sunshine, new members of the team and tv stars

Hello All,

A quick one to say how beautiful it is on the island this weekend, the sun out in all its glory.  We have been having a well earned weekend off but that doesn’t mean we stop.  The animals still need looking after, we’ve been doing a little spot of botany to see whats coming coming through and getting ready for our new team members arriving on Monday.

We will be taking delivery of 3 piglets who will making a new home for themselves in the Lighthouse Keepers Veg Garden for the next few months.  I’m sure once they have arrived and settled in Sam will be pumping out photos like theres no tomorrow.  So get yourselves over to say hi, they’ll want to meet you all.

I am on the Weakest Link today at 14:35 on BBC1 representing Flat Holm as one of the smartest islands around and giving Anne Robinson a good run for her money.  It should be a really good laugh, want to know how I’ve done, then you’ll just have to tune in.  So tell everyone you know.

Don’t forget to help us fill the boat trips this year by telling everyone you know about Flat Holm and marching them down to the boat. 

See you in the sunshine.


The Warden

    Hi Matt, Well done on getting so far through Weakest Link. Thought you might like to see the following comment, just received, in an email from a visitor who was on the island on Monday (married!)
    “We just watched Matt on the weakest link. He did very well didn’t he?
    Tell him we said well done. He should be beating the girls off with a stick now he’s been on tele. Very enjoyable to watch.”
    Happy Birthday too!!

    i dip in and out of this blog.
    just a wee sugestion though, you might consider a facebook page to help spread the word for the boat trips.

    a search on facebook reveals only this


    dont think it would take too much time and would keep people in touch too..

    • Hi Des, there are two or three Facebook pages dedicated to Flat Holm, we do have an official page that we update when we can. Due to Council Internet policy it doesn’t always go as smoothly as we would wish unfortunately. I will try to add a link from this blog to our facebook page however. Thank you
