THEMED HOLIDAY - WHAT MAKES JERSEY DIFFERENT?
w/c Sat 7 July 2018

Traditionally French speaking, Jersey is part of the British Isles - but not part of the United Kingdom. Find out what makes the Island unique.

Discover why The States of Jersey is the Island’s own independent ‘parliament’ and each of the twelve Parishes has its own administration and police service.

Who are these officials, and what do they do? Discover how the Honorary Police system works, and the ancient customs that still prevail.

The story will unfold in a series of visits to Island institutions, including The Royal Square, St Helier Town Hall, and St Lawrence country Parish Hall, School and Church.

Jersey is a place with a generous heart - and many benefactors have left a legacy of which the Island is proud.

Participation is optional and free of charge. Find out more about the hotel and check availability at maisondeslandes.co.uk/holidays/
