Culture[edit]

As it is customary to list the parishes round the coast, either clockwise or anti-clockwise, starting with St Peter Port, St Andrew is usually the last parish to be mentioned in such a list. This gave rise to the traditional nickname in Dgèrnésiais of the inhabitants of the parish: les croinchaons (the siftings, what is left behind in the sieve).

St Andrews is the most expensive parish in Guernsey closey followed by St Pierre Du Bois and St Saviour. St. Andrews is split into two parts one boarding St Peter Port and one Boarding St Saviour and the Forest. The upper part of the parish where the church and the little chapel is situated is very rural.
