Vale Liberation Day details announced

Fri 19 Apr 2024

Details of the celebrations for this year's Liberation Day have been released, along with the Vale's own plans. This year, the parish is marking the anniversary with a special tea party for its older residents, which will be held at the Vale Douzaine Room.

This is invitation only and those eligible should have received their letter by now. If anyone feels they should have been asked to attend, please contact the office between 10am and 1pm weekdays so we can sort that out. Those who have had their invite are asked to let us know whether they will be attending by April 25 because spaces are limited.

This very popular event for seniors takes place at the same time as the much anticipated Liberation Day Cavalcade, which runs along the north of the parish. 

The tea party starts at 2pm and promises a fun afternoon of tea, entertainment and a raffle and was very well attended last year, when Glenn Drake provided the music.

In addition, the route for this year's cavalcade has also been confirmed, with more than 100 military vehicles, classic cars and tractors taking part.

It will begin at Torteval Church at midday, visit St Peter's via The Imperial and L'Eree, pass through Castel along Vazon and Cobo, before travelling along the coast road towards the Vale via L'Islet and Vale Church, before joining up with more vehicles already gathered at Pembroke.

The full cavalcade will then start the final leg of the route through the Bridge via Bordeaux and will finish by travelling along the east coast and into St Peter Port.

The Cavalcade will end with a static display of all vehicles on the seafront in St Peter Port from 3-5pm. Islanders are encouraged to take a closer look at all the vehicles and speak to the owners.

Full timings are available here but those affecting the Vale are as follows:
