This morning a briefing was provided for the French Ambassador to the UK, Madame Sylvie Bermann at Government House Guernsey, hosted by His Excellency Lt. Governor Sir Ian Corder and Guernsey's Bailiff Sir Richard Collas.
The project was well received and the Ambassador and her team commented that these types of initiatives were not only important for both communities, but helped cement our joint cultures and experiences.
The French authorities continue to work enthusiastically with Project LesEmrais and the team expect to announce shortly the details regarding the sites planned for both occasions in France and in Guernsey. Current work is ongoing in preparing the events and commemorations which will be open to public attendance.
