The Golden Guernsey Goat Trail is now underway! There are 52 goats sited across the island, which will remain in place until mid-August.
To find the goats, you will need to use the Goat Trail map, which is available to download, or can be picked up for free at the Bus Terminus.
We invite you to download the Goat Trail app: simply search for the "Golden Guernsey Goat Trail app" in the play store. The app is free to download, but we do ask for a small donation via our JustGiving page. Entrants to the app competition have the chance to win an iPad. Watch out for updates about the app on our Goat Trail facebook page.
You are also invited to enter our Quiz, which is available from The Cobo Bay Hotel, The Farmhouse Hotel and Restaurant, The Imperial Hotel and the Up Climbing Centre. The Quiz costs just £2, and entrants to the quiz have a chance to win a Galaxy A40 phone.
What is the
Guernsey Goat Trail?
The Guernsey Goat Trail is very much a community event and everyone can get involved.
It is made up of 52 individually painted full-sized goat sculptures created in the Philippines using photographs of Guernsey goats and decorated by local artists, clubs and community groups, schools, charities and day centres. The goats are made of fibreglass and have been placed on plinths around the island.
The goats are on display at various locations around the Island of Guernsey and will remain in position until mid-August 2021. They will then be auctioned off in September to raise funds for Autism Guernsey and GALP to continue carrying out their vital work supporting individuals impacted by autism and adults with literacy difficulties.
Following the success of the Donkey Parade held in 2011 and the Cow Parade in 2012 by Guernsey Adult Literacy Project (Galp) Autism Guernsey, with the support of GALP, decided to organise a further parade with a strong local connection.
The Golden Guernsey Goat was chosen because it is an iconic breed unique to our island and very much part of our history.
Money raised from the sponsorship and auction of the Guernsey Goat sculptures will go to Autism Guernsey and GALP.
