Guernsey Pouques

The Bailiwick pouques and witches want to help the Wombles to tidy up and recycle rubbish on Guernsey. If you join in with a wombling Pick it up Guernsey event, look out for them as they may visit. But, remember, only children can see them! https://cleanearthtrust.org

The Bailiwick witches are disappointed that the air bridge to Ellan Vannin has broken. Never mind, they will enjoy a staycation for half term.#visitguernsey #visitalderney #visitsark #visitherm

Did you know that the fairy folk of the Channel Islands are just as active today as they have ever been?

Each island has its own witch and colony of fairy folk, similar to pixies who are called pouques.

They are tiny men and women, the size of toddlers, with orange hair and green clothes.

They are shape shifters and can change into rocks and animals.

 

They speak Guernsey French.

Only children can see them, and they are very mischievous but have a kind heart.

Sammy and Jacob Robilliard have lots of adventures with the pouques.

Don't forget if you want to see some pouques - THEY WON'T SHOW THEMSELVES WHEN THE ADULTS ARE AROUND!

 

The fairy folk of the Channel islands are delighted to join in with UK Scouting Race round the World.
