It's a quick procedure, that can save lives.

:00:11.:00:14.

But, some women in Guernsey may be putting off going for a cervical

:00:15.:00:18.

The problem has been highlighted after one woman, who took advantage

:00:19.:00:23.

of a little-publicised free screening service wrote

:00:24.:00:26.

about her experience online, and saw her post go viral.

:00:27.:00:32.

I pressed post and then I saw the likes were going up,

:00:33.:00:35.

and within six minutes, I had over a hundred

:00:36.:00:37.

When Lara Allen shared her post about free cervical

:00:38.:00:42.

smears in Guernsey, it struck a chord with

:00:43.:00:44.

I'm really pleased, because some ladies commented that

:00:45.:00:50.

I could have saved lives and I didn't even think

:00:51.:00:52.

I purely posted to try and save ladies' money.

:00:53.:00:58.

It's not a nice procedure, but women over the age of 25

:00:59.:01:01.

are advised to get screened regularly to reduce the risk

:01:02.:01:03.

However, if you go to your GP in Guernsey,

:01:04.:01:07.

The charges vary across the island surgeries, and range from ?61

:01:08.:01:12.

if it's carried out by a nurse, to ?86 if done by a doctor.

:01:13.:01:17.

But what many people on Social Media didn't realise, is that if you go

:01:18.:01:20.

to the Orchard Centre at the hospital,

:01:21.:01:22.

We have tended to focus on vulnerable women and women who find

:01:23.:01:32.

it difficult to bear the costs of St Michael screening tests.

:01:33.:01:35.

It is important women have access to this

:01:36.:01:37.

and do not prejudice their health and well-being.

:01:38.:01:51.

The Orchard Centre has seen an increase

:01:52.:01:53.

at the Orchard centre for the last 20 years.

:01:54.:01:58.

We have focused on people who are vulnerable and who cannot

:01:59.:02:05.

But screening figures in Guernsey are already above the national

:02:06.:02:07.

average with 80% of women registered with a GP

:02:08.:02:10.

going through the programme, compared to just over

:02:11.:02:11.

Health and Social Care say the cheaper screening alternatives

:02:12.:02:15.

provided by the Orchard Centre, and the Choices Guernsey

:02:16.:02:17.

aren't widely advertised as numbers are limited,

:02:18.:02:18.

Regardless of where it takes place, screening saves lives and all women

:02:19.:02:23.

are being encouraged to make an appointment when it's due,

:02:24.:02:25.

As new anti discrimination laws are due to be brought in in Jersey -

:02:26.:02:34.

in the next few months, people with disabilities are being

:02:35.:02:37.

asked to shape where they live - with the potential to make lives

:02:38.:02:40.

Peter's been visually impaired since childhood.

:02:41.:02:43.

A retired grower, he still keeps busy planting,

:02:44.:02:45.

as it's something he can do just by touch.

:02:46.:02:47.

He's keen for Jersey to improve for his fellow disabled islanders.

:02:48.:02:50.

I'm very lucky, because I'm mobile, when I go to town on the bus,

:02:51.:02:55.

I have my white cane, I'm very lucky the bus

:02:56.:02:59.

Depending where you live, you can have a long walk to a bus,

:03:00.:03:07.

People are trying to make things better.

:03:08.:03:11.

Nearly 14,000 people in Jersey are disabled

:03:12.:03:15.

60% surveyed said they found it hard to get involved

:03:16.:03:20.

in community activities and 41% found it hard

:03:21.:03:22.

And 28% said they've been discriminated

:03:23.:03:25.

A new law to tackle that discrimination is due

:03:26.:03:29.

But in the meantime, people are being asked their views

:03:30.:03:33.

Today was the first of three public meetings to discuss how life

:03:34.:03:38.

in Jersey could be made better not just for disabled people but also

:03:39.:03:41.

It is an island wide issue and the war responses

:03:42.:03:48.

understand what their needs are, we will hopefully be able to provide

:03:49.:03:53.

services across the board to meet the needs of people.

:03:54.:03:57.

Along with this, it is hoped the new strategy

:03:58.:04:04.

will help people like Peter find the island more accessible.

:04:05.:04:09.

The final coin has been lifted from the Jersey Hoard -

:04:10.:04:11.

The find - back in 2012 - remains one of the most

:04:12.:04:16.

Robert Hall has more on a momentous day.

:04:17.:04:22.

A small but symbolic moment, in a story no one

:04:23.:04:25.

The last coin from one of the most important finds in Western Europe,

:04:26.:04:30.

The story began with a 30-year search for treasure buried by Celtic

:04:31.:04:39.

tribes from France, well over 2,000 years ago.

:04:40.:04:44.

Their coins kept turning up, but the hoard found in 2012 was far

:04:45.:04:47.

Since then, it has been giving up its secrets.

:04:48.:04:52.

precious objects have emerged, including gold

:04:53.:04:58.

neckpieces, silver brooches and personal posessions.

:04:59.:05:01.

As soon as that hoard was found it went on show to the public.

:05:02.:05:04.

Then it was put in a laboratory, purpose-built, so the public could

:05:05.:05:07.

We were part of our journey, right the

:05:08.:05:12.

Now, at last, this phase of the restoration is complete.

:05:13.:05:18.

Every day there have been surprises and we

:05:19.:05:22.

think there is so much more to find out in the future.

:05:23.:05:26.

Today marks an end to three years of painstaking work.

:05:27.:05:29.

But there are many here in Jersey who

:05:30.:05:34.

believe this is not the end of the story.

:05:35.:05:37.

There is so much study to do with the board itself at what we can

:05:38.:05:41.

learn about events 2000 years ago, but in a much broader context, what

:05:42.:05:45.

It is as if it found us, we didn't find it.

:05:46.:05:51.

Maybe there is a reason for it for the future.

:05:52.:06:00.

You're up to date with the news in the Channel Islands.

:06:01.:06:03.

I'll leave you with the forecast and David Braine.

:06:04.:06:13.

Good evening. It is unusual for us to see so much in the way of cold

:06:14.:06:18.

weather in the Channel Islands but more of it is to come. A bit more

:06:19.:06:23.

cloud around tomorrow. Still dry and still feeling quite cold and still

:06:24.:06:28.

with the temperatures today, there won't be changed tomorrow. It may

:06:29.:06:34.

become slightly less cold as we move into Sunday, just a change in the

:06:35.:06:38.

wind direction to make society less cold air but for the most part, we

:06:39.:06:43.

are in the grip of some pretty chilly conditions, the frost

:06:44.:06:47.

starting to reform overnight tonight. Just below freezing. Frost

:06:48.:06:54.

is forming. Some patchy cloud around. It won't stop the

:06:55.:06:59.

temperatures falling. A widespread overnight frost. For tomorrow, the

:07:00.:07:06.

cloud amounts will be higher than we have seen the last couple of days.

:07:07.:07:12.

Generally light winds from the south-east and temperatures in the

:07:13.:07:17.

range of four all 5 degrees. Quite cold a, it will be will bid for all

:07:18.:07:23.

of us. Sunday, more cloud to start with but the winds started shift

:07:24.:07:27.

direction, they come up from the south and by the time we get to

:07:28.:07:30.

mid-morning, a lot of the cloud disappearing.

:07:31.:07:32.

feel cooler. Can we keep it going until the start of the new week? I

:07:33.:07:38.

suspect we can. Unconfirmed about -- concerned about the fog around. Here

:07:39.:07:40.

is Helen with the national picture. Good evening. The weather is upon

:07:41.:07:51.

us. The cloud has made all the difference this week in particular.

:07:52.:07:54.

We have had some wonderful weather watcher pictures, this is Marlowe in

:07:55.:07:58.

Buckinghamshire, this was Conwy earlier in the day. Some areas still

:07:59.:08:04.

have the cloud. What a difference that makes. Edinburgh, the central

:08:05.:08:08.

lowlands, plagued by this band of narrow cloud, overnight more areas

:08:09.:08:17.

share in the frost. Pretty widespread, the frost overnight,

:08:18.:08:20.

cold across northern England, Southern Scotland and Northern

:08:21.:08:24.

Ireland than it has been this week. These are town and city temperatures

:08:25.:08:28.

but in the countryside a harsh
