200th Celebration of Market Square

Billy and Lillia, members of the Forest Pupil Leadership Team, proudly represented Forest School at the 200th celebration of the Market Square building

As part of the Guernsey Market buildings’ 200th anniversary, Guernsey primary schools were invited to put items they thought best represented modern-day society into a milk churn time capsule.

Billy and Lillia too the poster, created by KS2, depicting outlines of the heads of the late Queen Elizabeth II and King Charles III, complete with drawings by pupils of the present day and the future.

‘The Queen’s head symbolises modern times, and the King’s head is for what the future might hold,’ Billy said.

The anniversary exhibition will be open to the public from today in the George Crossan Gallery at the Market for two months.

It features photographs, architectural drawings and newspaper articles from 1822-2022.
