A spokesperson said, “This year’s Bermuda National Trust Palm Sunday Walk will explore Paget and Warwick on Sunday, April 9, 2016. The Bermuda National Trust is extremely grateful for the tremendous support of our sponsor Sompo International.

“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 2016 Palm Sunday Walk,” the Company, which recently acquired Endurance Specialty Holdings Ltd, said.

“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 walk will start from The Bermuda College at 2pm, no later than 3pm. The route is about five miles and should take 2-2.5 hours to complete. Overspill parking is at the Evangelical Church,” the BNT said.

“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, historic neighborhoods, a secluded nature reserve 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 Paget and Warwick on April 9 are asked to use care, as walkers will be on the road for most of the afternoon.

“We would like 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 although National Trust water bottles are also available for sale.

“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.

“You can find details on how you can sponsor your walk in support of the Trust at Need more information? Please visit our Facebook page or call 236 6483.”
