I took a walk in Coronation Park, Millbrook, on the way home tonight. It is delightful oasis which was a gift to the people of Jersey from Lady Trent, who was the wife of Jessie Boot of Boots the Chemist fame. She offered it to the island in 1937.
I had forgotten just what a pleasant area it is sandwiched between the Inner Road and Victoria Avenue. With a buzzard circling overhead it was easy to imagine that I was in the countryside, as opposed to being next to the busiest road in Jersey.
