Get Involved In The Big Help Out

Islanders are being asked to help plant flowers at Fort Regent for the Big Help Out, to mark the King's Coronation.

The nationwide initiative aims to get people volunteering in their community.

Helpers will put red, while and blue blooms in the rose beds there today ( 8 May), meeting at the reception desk at 2pm.

Next week, volunteers will be asked to remove moss from the ramparts and help lay a new hoggin path.

The Big Help Out is supported by thousands of organisations and charities across the British Isles, giving members of the public chance to meet each other and join together on projects to benefit their own local communities.

Chief Minister Kristina Moore hopes people will get involved:

“I’d encourage Islanders to mark the Coronation of His Majesty the King by spending time in our great outdoors, giving something back to the community and to Fort Regent, a place with so much history, carrying so much importance to our Island.”

The footpath refurbishment can be supported each weekday from 15-19 May between 10am and 1pm, meeting outside the Sea Cadets building.

The National Trust for Jersey is inviting islanders to to weed hedgerows in St John on Monday morning.
