Opportunities also exist to serve as a Vingtenier or Constable's Officer - these elections are at a Parish Assembly.

Only 30% of driving licences due to expire in January 2019 have so far renewed. Have you checked the expiry date on your Jersey driving licence? If not, take a look at column 11 on the reverse of the licence. You can renew your licence up to 3 months before the expiry date so anyone with a licence expiring by mid February 2019 should apply now.
Use the online service - the service works on your smartphone, tablet or computer and you can take your photo with its camera. Parishioners tell us it's quick and really easy to use - why not try it and let us know if you agree?
Or pick up an application form from your Parish Hall and submit this with a printed passport style photograph. Payment of £50 for a 10-year licence is also required and if your name has changed since your last licence was issued (for example marriage etc.) you must submit the relevant documents (in this case a marriage certificate).
Remember - you must not drive if your licence has expired. Your vehicle insurance may also be invalid if you drive on an expired licence.

From 1 October to 30 April dogs may be exercised on Jersey beaches at any time and do not need to be kept on a lead. But your dog must still be kept under proper control and must wear a collar which has the owner's name, address and telephone number on the collar or a tag attached to the collar.
