Busy Hands are Never in Want

An Island Parish, Series 8 Episode 2 of 6

The new year is heralded by Sark's own unique interpretation of three-day eventing, with the islanders dressed as horses, but soon the realities of January on Sark kick in.

Without any tourist trade all must do what they can to make ends meet, but that's one of the attractions of island life. Dave the shepherd is taking on tree surgery, Dick the fisherman is straightening grave stones and Peter the harbour master is working on his music. Methodist lay preacher Karen Le Mouton puts herself forward to be considered for ordination, a potentially life-changing process.
