Les Fieillets Jèrriais Avri 2010

Our next meeting will be held on Wednesday April 7th at 8.00pm in the Arthur Mourant Room at La Société Jersiaise for further information, literature work and composition drafting.

We have been extremely fortunate to have received a large collection of original poetry and prose donated by Laurie Huelin. The pieces, including short plays, were written for competition in Les Sethées Jèrriaises at the Eisteddfodau since about 1950. They are a wonderful example of the wealth of literature, humour and imagination that the Jersey authors possessed and were able to express in Jèrriais.

At our meetings during the next few months, we will involve reading, classifying and selecting examples with a view to publishing them as a record of what brought laughter and applause to appreciative listeners.
