Plans for a parish-focused Liberation Day are well underway with local events already on offer in eight parishes.
Funding has been made available to all parishes who want to host community-based events as a part of making Liberation Day a whole-island celebration.
We would like to thank the many volunteers who have already worked hard to organise activities in true #GuernseyTogether style.
You can find full bus routes and timings here.
