Hundreds turn out as annual Palm Sunday walk returns after Covid enforced break
Hundreds of people visited St George’s yesterday as the Bermuda National Trust’s annual Palm Sunday Walk returned to the East End.
While the walk was cancelled in both 2020 and 2021 because of the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, crowds got back in step today as they trekked from Penno’s Wharf to Ferry Reach and back.
The route, organised by Myles Darrell, the BNT’s head of natural heritage, brought participants past historic buildings, old military cemeteries and hidden beauty spots.
Karen Border, executive director of the trust, said that more than 900 people had registered to take part in the event, with even more signing up at the start point.
She said she was “delighted and thrilled” by the number of people who took part and supported the event.
Ms Border said: “We have had these kinds of numbers in the past, but we didn’t know to what extent the gap and the introduction or registration would affect the turnout.
“We do need to thank the Bermuda public for supporting us and this event.
“It’s awesome to see this level of support. It’s great to see so much of Bermuda here to enjoy the day and it has been a beautiful afternoon – there have been crazy winds, but that has kept it cool.”
