Australia Day In Jersey

Jersey's Australian community is celebrating their country's national holiday.

An event's being held at the Town Hall from 12pm to celebrate the country's traditions and history.

"We're going to have a traditional Aussie 'sausage sizzle' and there'll be lamingtons, Anzac biscuits and of course a few drinks to celebrate!"

Australia Day reflects on what it means to be Australian, to celebrate contemporary Australia and to acknowledge its history.

Kelly Whitehead will be there - she's hoping for a big turnout.

"We're an active community. I think at the last census, there was about 300 Australians living in Jersey.

"And of course there are a lot of people in Jersey who have connections - family and friends that are Australian or who have lived in Australia. We'd like them all to come down!"
