Guernsey parishes support Jubilee celebrations

A torchlight procession and photo exhibitions of islanders honoured by the Queen are among the ideas to celebrate next year's Diamond Jubilee.

Mike O'Hara, Guernsey's Culture and Leisure Minister, said the parishes had shown they were keen to get involved.

He said his department was also looking at involving the island in national initiatives.

Moving a bank holiday and granting an extra one to celebrate the jubilee from 2-5 June has been agreed by the States.

Deputy O'Hara said as well as island-wide initiatives, the island's parish officials had suggested events specifically for parishioners to mark 60 years of the Queen's reign.
