The Gnome Exchange
The Gnome Exchange

No place like Gnome

Have you lost your gnome and his friends? Seven gnomes have popped up in St. Brelade.


Seven garden gnomes have appeared outside the telephone exchange opposite the Checkers at Red Houses. 

Overnight, 7 garden gnomes had found their way to the telephone exchange in St. Brelade, sitting just outside the entrance.

So if you’ve lost your Gnomes and really would like to find them, get in touch with Jersey Telecom and maybe they can be returned to their rightful owner.

We asked Jenny Hamel from Jersey Telecom for more information on the general condition of the Gnomes and how they’re holding up in their new home and she told us that she hopes the owner will come forward soon as “by the looks of them I don't think they can make it through another cold and frosty night!”

There are suggestions that it is the work of FreeTheGnomes.com who provide Garden Gnome Liberation information and calls to action.

According to their website they “advocate an end to oppressive gardening and freedom for garden gnomes everywhere.”

Either way if you know anything about 7 escaped or liberated Gnomes get in touch with Jersey Telecom now.
