Following his successful appearance at the 2014 Battle of
Flowers, Humfrey - that loveable Lion from Fort Regent attended
this year's Jersey Live.
Humfrey had a great day out at Jersey Live last
weekend. After a long break from public engagements Humfrey has
given himself a good shake down, combed his mane and is once again
set to get involved in community events, rekindling the public
appearances many islanders will remember from yesteryear.
Humfrey was delighted to meet those talented boys
from Diversity and to share some tips on dance moves as
well as meeting and greeting some new fans. He thoroughly enjoyed
his day at Jersey Live and looks forward to getting involved
in more community events.

Regent's Marketing Manager, said that Humfrey last participated in
the Battle of Flowers during the 1990's but appearing at a music
festival is breaking new ground.
