Deputy Sue Aldwell, Committee for Education, Sport & Culture, announced the plans saying; "We are excited for Guernsey to be part of and mirror some of the events happening across the country with our own unique island spin.

"A Platinum Jubilee is a once in a lifetime occasion and we hope that islanders will join us in celebrating over the weekend as we mark this milestone."
