Clubs and Associations - Guernsey
The Society as it was then, was set up over 60 years ago in Guernsey and remains
popular with Scots living in Guernsey today, who form 11% of the population.
However it may surprise some that in fact the Association is open to anyone -
you do not need a Scot family background. There are in fact Welsh, Irish, English and South African
members. After the Second World War, it became an Association and at that time was opened up to
non-Scots. Most people join the Association with a view to finding others with similar interests
and enjoy the Social activities that are organised.
Each year, the Association host three main events, Burns Night, an early
summer ball in April and St Andrew's Night in November. The last Burns Night attracted 260 people.
Scottish dancing features prominently in the summer ball which is now held at Beau Sejour.
Membership costs just £5 per year. More information can be obtained from Stuart
