A STATES building named in memory of a champion of the Island’s environment could be given a new lease of life to attract visitors to the Jersey National Park.
Environment Minister Steve Luce wants to make the Frances Le Sueur Centre in La Mielle de Morville, in St Ouen’s Bay, the focal point of the park, which encompasses 25 per cent of Jersey’s coastline and countryside.
The centre was opened in 1995 as an educational facility for children to learn about St Ouen’s Bay. It was named after naturalist and botanist Frances Le Sueur, who with her husband, Dick, lived in the bay and campaigned throughout the 1960s and 70s to persuade the States to protect the area’s unique biodiversity, which was then under threat from creeping residential development.
