Parishioners in Grouville will have to choose between two candidates for the role of Constable in the States of Jersey.

The candidates are dairy farmer and former honorary police officer John le Maistre and Grouville Chef de Police, Centenier Charles Dix.

An election will be held next month following the death of Dan Murphy.

Parishioners will have a chance to talk to both candidates at Grouville Parish Hall on 24 September to find out more.

Mr Murphy died in July, aged 73, after an illness.

Constable Murphy served his parish for 10 years, as well as being the vice-chairman of the Constables Committee.

The election will be held on 2 October in Grouville Parish Hall and the polling station will be open between 08:00 BST and 20:00 BST.

The new Constable will be sworn in on 4 October.

There are 56 members of the States but only the 51 elected members of the States - Senators, Connétables and Deputies - have the right to vote.
