April 12, 2019 | 1 Comment

This year’s Bermuda National Trust Palm Sunday Walk is expected to draw hundreds of residents and visitors to explore the West End on Sunday, April 14, 2019.

The BNT said, “The walk will start from Cross Island in Dockyard at 2pm, no later than 3pm. The route is about 5 miles and should take two to two-and-a-half hours to complete. Parking will be at Cross Island although participants are also encouraged to take the ferry from Hamilton.”

The Bermuda National Trust is extremely grateful for the tremendous support of sponsor Sompo International whose spokesperson said: “A supporter of the Bermuda National Trust and their role in preserving the island’s open spaces and rich heritage, Sompo International is proud to sponsor their 2019 Palm Sunday Walk.

“Sompo International supports numerous local services, projects and events that benefit the broader Bermuda community and looks forward to the annual spring walk as a way to promote both environmental awareness and physical and mental health.”

“The Trust encourages all residents and visitors to come and participate in this great community event. All are welcome and there is no charge for participation, although donations of $5 would be appreciated,” the BNT added.

“As always, the route will take participants to places that the public does not regularly get to explore and a map will highlight some points of cultural and natural interest along the way. While providing breathtaking views throughout, this year’s walk will visit spectacular sites of national significance, important cemeteries, secluded beauty spots and pass countless historic buildings and structures.

“Participants are advised to wear sensible shoes and to note that the route is not suitable for strollers and dogs are not permitted. Road users in the Watford Island to Dockyard Area on April 14 are asked to use care, as walkers will be on the road for most of the afternoon.

“The Trust would like to like to thank John Barritt & Son Ltd. which is kindly providing the refreshments again this year. Participants are encouraged to bring their own drinks containers as water will be provided at the start/finish and half way point where Sweet Saak hot cross buns will also be available for a $2 donation.

“There will also be opportunities to buy National Trust water bottles. books, memberships and merchandise at the start and end point so participants are asked to bring cash. Need more information? Please visit www.bnt.bm.”
