Don your guernsey and head to the Guernsey Information Centre between 10am - 4pm on Thursday 16th November, browse the stalls and enter the photo competition. Bean Jar and cake will also be available!

A ‘guernsey’ is a knitted jumper that has been traditionally made in Guernsey since the early 1800s. It was originally worn by fishermen due to its resilience and has since become an important item of clothing that many people from all across the world are proud to own. Fishermen’s wives would knit jumpers for their families and the skill has been passed on through generations, so these garments hold a special place in the hearts of islanders.

During the day the following will be onsite at the Guernsey Information Centre

Guernsey Woollens
Le Tricoteur
Mint (food)
G & M Produce (tea, coffee & cake)
