Parish council internet sensation Jackie Weaver visits Guernsey

Jackie Weaver, who became an internet sensation during a parish council meeting earlier this year, is visiting Guernsey today (14 September).

Ms Weaver was the clerk of a Handforth Parish Council meeting which descended into chaos - with councillors trading insults and ultimately getting booted off the Zoom call.

Once the clip was posted on Twitter, it received millions of views and likes.

Now, she is coming to the Channel Islands to speak about her life, the infamous meeting and her advice to women at a Women in Public Life Event.

Jackie is also about to publish her first book, and will be signing copies at the event.

Upon learning about her visit, one islander in Jersey got in touch on social media to say she is such a big fan, she even named her favourite hen after her!
