Victoria, who is 10 and living in the west of the island, lives really near to her school which is really fun cause we can walk to school, cycle to school in the morning. In the car it takes one minute, walking it takes like 5 minutes. She described that the roads near us are so quiet, that there’s barely any cars so my mum might let me go across the road on my own. She trusts me. In addition to the quiet roads, she also enjoys having all the fresh air and that in like May and things, you can always smell the cow pat from the potatoes because the Jersey Royals are a really big part of Jersey.
