SATURDAY, MAR. 31: Bermuda’s traditional Palm Sunday Walk organised by the Bermuda National Trust will take place tomorrow (Sunday).
Hundreds of people are expected to take part in the walk, which will start at the Whitney Institute in Smith’s and take a five mile route through the beauty spots of the parish.
The Trust’s David Outerbridge said: “As always, the route will take participants to places that the public rarely gets to explore and a map will highlight some points of cultural interest along the way.”
The route will go from the north shore of the island to the south and back again, visiting 18th century homes bankrolled by piracy and privateering.
Walkers will also get the chance to revisit the dark days of Bermuda’s past, when capital punishment was commonplace and whaling was a major industry.
Those taking part should wear suitable shoes for walking and organisers added that the route is not suitable for baby strollers or dogs.
Organisers also appealed for drivers in the Middle Road, Verdmont Road and South Road areas of Smith’s to take particular care as walkers will be around for most of the afternoon.
The walk is scheduled to start around 2pm and should take around two hours to complete.
Mr Outerbridge thanked landowners whose cooperation made the event possible and the Argus Group for sponsorship.
He added: “We encourage 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.”
