Once again in 2012 the Parish of St Helier entered a successful float into the Battle of Flowers entitled 'What the Dickens!', celebrating 200 years of Charles Dickens. The float was based on 'food, glorious food' from Oliver Twist and included a large trifle, Christmas pudding and blancmange.
In 2011, the Parish won four awards for its New Jersey-themed float, being the Prix d'Excellence de Papier, the Best Two Dimensional Paper, the Best Set Piece Paper and the class prize.
The St Helier Battle of Flowers group is a welcoming group of people keen to create a community atmosphere. All islanders are welcome to join in. For further information please contact Alain Baudains on 07797 832597 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
