Parish Champion of the Year

Part of what makes Guernsey so great is our pride in our parishes. These mini communities within our wider islands safeguard our identity and heritage and preserve a way of life we are still so fortunate to enjoy many generations later. Often it is key individuals who ensure these jewels in the island’s crown remain that way - that grass roots parish life continues to tick along as it always has done. They do so out of love for their area and usually with little or no recognition. This award aims to thank those who promote and protect our parishes.
