Preparations for this year’s Tennerfest are nearing completion and the organisers are delighted that for the first time ever, restaurants in Alderney have joined the promotion.
Natalie de Woolfson from Tennerfest organiser Hamilton Brooke, said: “Alderney has proved very popular as a Staycation destination for Guernsey residents and for many it has opened their eyes to what a lovely place it is to visit. It’s not short of great restaurants either so we’re delighted that they are joining in this year’s promotion”.
She added: “Of course, 2020 is going to be a little different, but then that is the case for pretty much everything this year. The key thing though, is that across all of the islands we have an industry that more than ever needs a boost and judging by the feedback we are getting there are hungry people ready and waiting to provide just that.
They won’t be disappointed either with a fantastic range of menus on offer in Guernsey, Sark, Jersey and now of course Alderney.”
Helene Turner, Director of Tourism at States of Alderney said: “We are very excited and pleased to have Alderney restaurants involved in the Tennerfest this year. Following a successful Bailiwick Bubble summer, we hope that this will encourage Bailiwick visitors to continue to visit as we move into the shoulder months to experience our wonderful food offering.
“Alderney is full of flavour, from local produce and rich creamy milk to seafood straight from the islands clear waters all of which can be enjoyed in our delightful cafes and restaurants. The Tennerfest is a perfect chance to take a short break on our lovely island and all that is needed is a healthy appetite!”
There’s less than five weeks to wait with Tennerfest starting on first of October and running for six weeks.
