Occupation VIPs and Jersey Royals

Occupation VIP’s are invited to take part in the Genuine Jersey, Jersey Royal potato growing competition.

This is a competition to grow the heaviest crop and greatest number of Jersey Royal new potatoes using a ‘growing kit’.

An ‘Occupation VIP’ is a person who was either resident in Jersey during the Occupation, evacuated, deported or who served in the forces at that time. Anyone born on or before 9 May 1945 who meets one of these criteria and who wishes to take part should contact their Parish by Friday 28 January 2022 to register to take part.

The Genuine Jersey, Jersey Royal potato growing kits will be distributed in early February 2022 and the weigh-in will be at advertised in due course.
