Photos: Montpelier Cleans Up Railway Trail

September 11, 2014

More than 30 employees from Montpelier Reinsurance marked the company’s annual Global Day of Giving today [Sept 11] by cleaning up a portion of the Railway Trail.

The project was organized in support of Friends of Bermuda Railway Trail [FBRT], a non-profit group working to connect and rejuvenate the trail in partnership with the Parks Department. Montpelier Re is one of four corporate founding members of FBRT.

The company said, “Employees worked with the Parks Department to clear almost 20 truckloads of invasive vegetation and trash from the area near the old railway pylons at Store Hill.

“FBRT plans to use the pylons to rebuild a bridge over Store Hill and finally reconnect the Railway Trail from Palmetto Road near the bus depot all the way to Flatt’s.”

Chris Harris, President and CEO of Montpelier Re Holdings, said, “I am pleased that a large number of our employees were able to participate in the restoration of a portion of the Railway Trail today.

“Montpelier Re has been a proud supporter of Bermuda charities through our foundation and volunteer efforts since 2003, and this exciting rejuvenation project provides yet another opportunity for us to give back to the community.”

    What, nobody has the decency to jump right on here & say a huge THANKYOU?

    I seldom have any reason to use any of the old railway right of way but THANKYOU staff of Montpelier Re. just the same.

  2. Thank You! says:

    I run on the railway trail every day so I know how much work it takes to clean it up. It’s too bad that people will just continue throwing their garbage and unwanted furniture there.

    Awesome job by Montpellier Re. May other companies, local and international follow in their footsteps. Giving a little goes a long way. Thanks to all those volunteers and the Dept of W&E.
