Guernsey Pouques – Old Homepage

The fairy folk went into town today to see Father Christmas switch on the town lights. They helped the elves collect all the children's letters. They were also delighted to bump into their favourite deputy. "Warro!" Deputy Gavin. @gavinstpier

The Fairy Folk of Guernsey are pleased to support Wear a Guernsey day 2020 for the RNLI.

I made up a poem for American humans:

O, let America be
A land where every human is free,
No matter colour, gender or creed

They ALL made America,

Their sweat and blood, their faith and pain,
Their hand in factory, their plough in rain,
Live in harmony once again!

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!
