‘There is so much more than the eye can see’
It is so easy to rush around our historic St Helier, or just drive past our Island’s Castles, Towers, farmhouses, northern cliffs, with golden beaches not knowing much, if anything, about their history. As your guide I firmly believe that you shall ‘Experience’ plus appreciate our surroundings so much more if we can look at them knowing a little about their past.
Over the centuries Islanders have faced numerous challenges, whether that be the threat of invasion, or occupation. Continuing the need to diversify their means of earning a livelihood, in order to adapt to the changing world around them. Being Jersey born I am very proud of the resilience along with the creativity of Islanders that have shown themselves over the centuries, when dealing with these challenges. How my Island has evolved, as a result whilst still guarding its historic constitution.
Should you come on one of my walks, or on a coach tour with me you are likely to 'Experience' about events in Jersey’s history, going back to prehistoric times leading up until the present day. Including some of the many people who have helped shape our Island as I ‘Bring Jersey Alive’, I shall share my passion for Jersey fascinating history, savouring this beautiful environment with you!
