Guernsey's Culture and Leisure Department has started looking for a new Liberation Day event company.

The outsourced role has been advertised and it is hoped a company will be appointed in September.

Peter Falla, the department's marketing director, said it was not a job for the fainthearted.

He said: "They need to demonstrate that they can deliver and manage events in a value for money way and be creative in terms of their thinking."

Liberation Day celebrates and commemorates the end of the German Occupation of the island during WWII on 9 May 1945.

In 2010 events on the day included a military parade, a number of services of remembrance, a cavalcade, helicopter flypasts and entertainment and stalls on the St Peter Port seafront.
