The annual Royal Guernsey Agricultural and Horticultural Society Show begins today.

The popular event sees farmers and interested islanders flocking to Saumarez Park to see if their cattle make the grade in a number of categories.

Prizes including the prestigious Queen's Cup, Best Animal in Show and Champion Bull are up for grabs.

The Horse Show starts at 9:30 a.m, with the Cattle Show starting half an hour later.

The event is free to the public.


Islanders reminded of new planning laws

Islanders in Guernsey may need to apply for planning permission, which they were previously told they didn't need.

It's after the Island Development Plan designated new Conservation Areas.

Properties in the new Delancey Conservation Area and the St Peter Port Conservation Area may be affected.

The Planning Service say permission might be required for works that have already begun, but haven't been substantially completed.

Anyone thinking about developing should check the government website.

Other work, within Sites of Special Significance, may also require permission.
