Part of our lives for 125 years

THIS weekend is one of celebration for the Guernsey Press, as we mark 125 years in print on Sunday.

Many readers have told us how much they have enjoyed Rob Batiste’s 125 series over the past six months, highlighting some of the best stories, photographs and ‘great islanders’ we have seen over that period.

Some of those best pages are also on display now outside the Priaulx Library, courtesy of the exhibition sponsors Ravenscroft.

It is a time to thank all of those who do business with us – our advertisers, particularly our partners across the 125 series, and crucially, our readers. Without you, we are nothing.

If the first newspaper of 1897 had not caught on with readers – at a time when newspapers were started and scrapped pretty regularly – then we wouldn’t be here today.

It has been a time for us to take a moment and pause to reflect on the role of the Guernsey Press in chronicling island life for these many decades. The social history and the development of Guernsey has been faithfully recorded in our pages, and, as our most recent series has shown, we have charted our island journey from agriculture, to horticulture, then tourism, and most recently, financial services, to enable us to make our way in the world.

Guernsey remains a great place to be, and we remain proud to be part of island life every day.
