Palm Sunday Walk To Be Held On March 20

March 17, 2016

This year’s Bermuda National Trust [BNT] Palm Sunday Walk will explore the heart of Pembroke on Sunday, March 20.

The walk will start from The Berkeley Institute at 2.00pm [no later than 3.00pm], with the route covering about five miles and should take from two to two-and-a-half hours to complete.

A spokesperson said, “The Bermuda National Trust is extremely grateful for the tremendous support of the sponsor Endurance.

“A longtime supporter of the Bermuda National Trust and their role in preserving the island’s open spaces and rich heritage, Endurance is proud to sponsor their 2016 Palm Sunday Walk. Endurance 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.”

“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, an intact historic fort, a wetland of international importance and pass several historic houses and buildings.

“Participants are advised to wear sensible shoes and to note that the route is not suitable for strollers or dogs. Please expect hills. Road users in Pembroke and northeast Hamilton on March 20 are asked to use care, as walkers will be on the road for most of the afternoon.

“The Bermuda National Trust is grateful to the Governor, Mr George Fergusson and Mrs Fergusson, the trustees of The Berkeley Institute, the Ministry of Public Works and the Corporation of Hamilton for making this event possible. We would also to like thank John Barritt & Son Ltd. who has kindly agreed to provide the refreshments again this year. Participants are asked to please bring a drinks container.

“The Trust encourages all locals and visitors to come and participate in this great community event. All are welcome and there is no charge for participation, although donations would be greatly appreciated.”
