The Circle Local History Group

If you are interested in local history then please come and visit us at the Circle Library

The Local History Group meets at The Circle Library, St. Helier at 10.00 a.m. on the last Saturday of each month.  We are a small, friendly group and enjoy listening to visiting speakers, outings to local places of historic interest and researching subjects for exhibition at the library and on this website.

A very informative day out. After living on the St Helier Estate for all these years ,i never knew the park existed behind the the garden center,the gardens are very well kept and the rose bushes we're beautiful, a great place to relax and take in the atmosphere of how it used to be. A brilliant day had by all.
