Many people have been involved in the Alderney Stones project. I would like to thank Eric Snell for his determination, energy, and passion for art and the Bailiwick. I very much enjoyed my initial visits to Guernsey and discussions with Eric, Joanna Littlejohns and Steve Eldridge.

Many people were involved form Alderney itself - in particular Roland Gauvain and Dorothy Christmas. Dorothy has given enormous time and commitment to the project. Without her it would never have happened.

The Stones could not have been made without the care, sensitivity and intelligence of Mark Jacobs and Sam Clayton. No one works harder, or more efficiently, than this pair.

My thanks to Tina Fiske who initially persuaded me to come to Alderney and has seen the project through to completion.
