These will take place on the 9th and 15th November commencing at 7.00pm. If you do not attend one of these ‘face to face’ meeting where you can present your ID, your application form will be cancelled.
Many thanks to all those who have volunteered to help with the Swimming Competition. You will receive a communication from the Swim Co-ordinator as soon as the registration procedures have closed.

One or two people are enquiring about registration procedures for volunteers for the 2023 Island Games. As a reminder please see the following information:-
All volunteers who registered for the 2021 Games should have received the following letter.
The rescheduled NatWest International Island Games, which were due to be hosted here in Guernsey in 2021, are now back on track to happen 8-14 July 2023.
The main Organising Committee has started meeting again. We were well ahead with planning before the postponement and although there are a number of areas where we can pick up where we left off, there is still a lot of work to do to enable us to deliver the best possible Games.
We hope that everyone who volunteered previously is still keen to be involved however we appreciate that circumstances and availability may have changed. Please can we ask you to login into your Better Impact account and update your information if you have any changes regarding your availability in 2023
