Shopping:
Shopping in the Channel Islands is centered on St Helier, Jersey’s capital, and is exempt from the UK sales tax of 20 percent, although there is a goods and services tax of three percent. Most of St Helier’s central shopping district is pedestrianized and visitors won’t find the massive shopping malls common in most other European hubs. In keeping with the slow pace of life on the islands, retail therapy here has more in common with mainstreet shopping, with a selection of individual shops and several department stores including Marks & Spencer, BHS, and Voisins.

Elsewhere on Jersey are shopping areas in St John, Gorey, and St Ouen, with charming boutiques tucked away in little back streets. Fashions varies between the decidedly upscale to individually-designed clothes, bags, and jewelry, and a great selection of shoe shops. Farm stores selling fresh local produce are popular across the islands, with the freshly churned butter and cream quite literally the best in the world.

Television
ITV Channel Television – the longest-serving of the two services – provides regional programming for the Islands, including a flagship nightly news programme, ITV News Channel TV, a twice-weekly sports magazine show Report Sport, the long-running children’s series Puffin’s Place and local documentaries.

BBC Channel Islands News – an opt-out service for the Channel Islands, broadcast from the BBC Radio Jersey studios in St Helier at 6:30pm (during the first half of Spotlight) and at 10:25pm (after the BBC News at Ten) each weeknight on BBC1.

Radio
Local radio in Jersey is broadcast by BBC Radio Jersey, and Channel 103. Radio Youth FM, an internet radio station run by young people aged 12 – 24 is also active in the island and broadcasts up to 10 shows each week.

Volunteering:
Volunteer.je connects Jersey’s non-profit organizations such as local charities, community events, sport teams, green initiatives and those who need a helping hand finding suitable and willing volunteers.
