Regiment Offers Parking For Canada Day Event

June 27, 2015

The Bermuda Regiment is to offer its Warwick Camp site for car parking today [June 25] as Canadians celebrate their national day on nearby Warwick Long Bay – complete with a shuttle service to the party..

The Regiment will open up the camp gates to allow revellers to park their cars safely, helping to keep the approach roads around the beach clear for emergency and other vehicles.

And the cost of parking, $10 for a full day for cars and $2 for bikes, will go to a good cause – the Bermuda Charitable Trust, in aid of the Regiment diving team’s “50 Wreck Dives in 50 Days” programme, organised as part of the armed service’s golden anniversary celebrations.

And to help partygoers chill out at the Association of Canadians in Bermuda [ACIB] event, the first 50 cars to park will also get a free bag of ice thrown in.

Regiment Colour Sergeant David Dumont said, “It’s an opportunity to raise money for the diving programme and also helps keep the roads around the beach clear.

“People will be able to park their vehicles in a safe environment – and avoid the potential risk of a ticket for a parking violation around the beach area.

“We are happy to assist in any way we can to make sure the party goes without a hitch and to raise money for a worthwhile initiative, which will involve conservation work and clean-ups of trash in the waters around the Island.”

He added, “The Bermuda Regiment trains regularly in Canada and we’re delighted we can help people celebrate its national day and further foster our already close links.”

The To the Top beach shuttle service has joined forces with the Regiment and will be offering $2 rides from the parking lot at Warwick Camp to the ACIB event – cutting out a 15 minute walk.

Parking will be available at Warwick Camp from 9am – 6pm and the shuttle service will run from 11am – 6pm.

    Wow, what a pleasant turn of events – maybe we can do something like this on Christmas instead of giving people tickets and towing them. And great for the charities as well. Win-win.

    maybe the organizers can request the Regiment to come help make sure partygoers clean up after themselves as well.
