St John buys the ambulance station

Sunday 19 March 2023


The Commandery of St John in the Bailiwick of Guernsey has bought the ambulance station on the Rohais.

The sale went through contract court earlier this week for £1.

It has been described as "nothing more than a paper exercise" but it does mean that the ambulance station is now fully owned locally for the first time ever.

A spokesperson for the ambulance service explained that when St John was first formed in Guernsey there was not a local Commandery. That meant the Priory of England & the Islands held a legal interest in the property on the Rohais.

The sale of the property for £1 means that ownership of the ambulance station has now been legally transferred to the Commandery of St John in the Bailiwick of Guernsey.
