An animated overview of the States of Guernsey
In conjunction with four other Island organisations and with help from Forest Primary School pupils, an apple orchard was planted at National Trust of Guernsey property, Les Caches Farm, on Friday 10th February, 2017. An environmental, community project for future generations to enjoy.
The Guernsey Arts Commission have been delivering reminiscence art workshops at The Willows Day Centre. ITV Channel Television came to one of the workshops to see what it involved. We are delighted to have received a grant from the Pargiter Trust, which is managed in Guernsey by the Guernsey Community Foundation. This grant was to deliver a pilot ‘Reminiscence Arts’ project for people living with Dementia. The Community Arts team were trained by a facilitator from the UK Charity, Age Exchange, who for over 25 years have worked with older people to improve their quality of life. This is through valuing their reminiscences and giving them opportunities for wider appreciation in the form of visual and performance arts projects, intergenerational projects, exhibitions and documentary film.

The Guernsey Vintage and Classic Tractor Club, with nearly 60 members, meets several times a year for road runs, shows and ploughing competitions. The National Trust of Guernsey are great fans of GVCTC and for about half a dozen times, over the last two years, the tractor club have assembled on the courtyard at the National Trust of Guernsey's Folk and Costume Museum at Saumarez Park. The sun shone and a happy crowd gathered at this unofficial event for GVCTC and National Trust of Guernsey. With thanks to GVCTC for giving a lot of people a lot of smiles. Here’s to the next!
