AA in Guernsey—a Short History
AA was started in Guernsey in 1961, with a handful of sufferers meeting once a week. The fellowship has grown steadily over the years. There are now eleven meetings each week with a total attendance of about a hundred members.
AA Guernsey Convention history
A Guernsey mini-Convention was held in 1995 and attracted 47 delegates, drawn from Guernsey and Jersey. Encouraged by this success, members organised the first Guernsey Convention in 1996 when exactly 100 AAs and friends attended, more than thirty travelling from mainland UK for the event. The Convention has since become an annual fixture with many visitors making the pilgrimage to share in fellowship with Guernsey AAs who have become firm friends.
