Sark Tourism still not informed of Sark Estate Management's plans to close

The head of the Sark Chief Pleas Tourism Committee Sandra Williams says she has still not been informed of Sark Estate Management's plans to close its businesses, but she has issued this statement...

Although this is unfortunate, Sark is still able to offer an excellent range of accommodation from top quality bed and breakfasts and self-catering lets, to campsites and two award-winning hotels. We are perplexed about the decision to close their hotels when this season has been so successful.

Lots of people here have had a bumper season and I'm thrilled with the positive feedback from a range of businesses on the island.

I believe that visitors will still want to come and experience what I can only describe as a taste of heaven. Sark is still very much open for business.

– Sark Chief Pleas Tourism Committee, Sandra Williams
