The Jersey Old Motor Club have organised a cavalcade on Liberation Day.
The club members will congregate with their ‘old motors’, which date prior to 1951, in St Helier’s Broad Street and up to the Town Hall before the Connetable of St. Helier, Simon Crowcroft, raises the Club’s flag to send the cavalcade off at 11.15 a.m. on Liberation Day, 9th May.
Many of the cars date to pre World War 2, including a number which were in the island during the German Occupation.
The vehicles, colourfully adorned with Liberation regalia, will then set off on a journey around the island, passing each of the parish churches at the following times:
|Churches||First Car||Last Car|
|Start (Broad Street)||11.15||11.25|
This is the same route as the Club has followed on its traditional Boxing Day Run, which due to Covid-19, for the first time in 50 years, could not be held on Boxing Day last year.
The President of the Club, Jonathan Scott Warren, said: “We are delighted to be able to hold this event and celebrate this hugely important day in the island’s calendar, and add some additional colour to the festivities as we pass each of the parishes”.
