Publish date: 19 May 2022
Jersey welcomes the arrival of three new Bronze Badge Guides after they completed a course run by the Jersey Tourist Guides Association (JTGA). M C Guiding, Sue Gorin and Monty Losh are some of the island’s newest professional guides; each sharing a vast amount of knowledge and enthusiasm for the island and they will be offering a number of different walking tours across various parts of the island. The guided tours will be accessible to both local residents and visitors alike, with private and group tours available upon request.
Melanie Cavey of M C Guiding has always demonstrated a passion for learning about Jersey’s history and natural environment and decided to share her enthusiasm by offering walks with the aim of ‘bringing Jersey history alive’. Melanie currently offers four walks that focus on the radical changes brought about in 19th Century St. Helier and beyond. Melanie will also delve into the challenges that the island faced, how both the government and the people responded, all whilst pointing out iconic buildings and sharing stories of some the incredible people of that time.
Sue Gorin not only shares her passion for family history but also for Jersey’s diverse culture, heritage and the wonderful story that makes up the island. Sue will be running a series of tours, including parish walks, where individuals will be lead through winding lanes and pathways as the unique character of each parish is unearthed.
With a genuine interest in people and history, Monty Losh became a Bronze Badge Guide to share his wealth of knowledge of the island’s historical background with locals and visitors alike. Monty also has an interest in the ebb and flow of immigration to the island and the way that Jersey has constantly re-invented itself and adapted to change, both socially and economically. Monty will be offering a series of different walking tours, labelled ‘History Now’, which includes Jersey and the Civil War, Jersey’s Remarkable Women, The Arts and Architecture of St. Helier and Jersey, The French Speaking Island.
