The Pride of Jersey Awards

The Pride of Jersey Awards were held in the marquee at Government House last Saturday with His Excellency and Lady Dalton attending.

About 250 people packed into the marquee for the ceremony which was once again hosted by Islanders former England footballer Graeme Le Saux and singer-song writer Nerina Pallot.

A total of 150 individuals or groups were nominated in this year’s Pride of Jersey Awards, which were sponsored by Dandara.  Following a public vote – where a record-breaking 27,700 votes were cast – the three in each category were shortlisted and the winners selected by a panel of judges who included some of last year’s winners.
