What's new

It's the start of half-term holidays today, with kids returning to class on Tuesday 3 November. Ordinarily we'd be looking forward to Oktoberfest too and SBM, conscious of the Covid restrictions, has renamed the event FamilyFest. The Cafe de Paris is providing the usual Bavarian entertainment, food and beer, but tables can accommodate no more than 10 partygoers. Prince Albert will be present for the official opening tomorrow evening.

Employees of La Maree have been protesting outside Port Palace hotel. The rooftop fish and seafood restaurant has been closed since the end of September, with reports of a dispute between the new owners of the hotel (see 12 March 2020 newsletter) and the operator of the restaurant.
