From Easter this year the Parish will be providing a series of free weekly two hour guided walks which will be open to all comers. The aim is to encourage a greater knowledge of the Parish's rich history for the benefit of parishioners, as well as supporting Jersey's tourism industry - which will also assist the town's retail and hospitality sectors. The programme of walks has been devised by Tom Bunting, whose 'Murder, Muck and Mayhem' walk has been enjoyed by hundreds over the years, and will feature some of the Island's experienced and qualified Blue Badge Guides as well as experts on St Helier's maritime history and wartime experiences.
The walks start with 'Historic St Helier' on Thursday 28th March, when you will be accompanied by tour guide Clive Jones. Come on a tour around historic St Helier, but be prepared to be mentally agile! You'll jump from the 17th Century to mid-20th Century and back again in an instant. Learn about the merchant who built his house in the middle of the red light district, the gaoler who adorned one of St Helier's oldest pubs, see who hangs around the Royal Square on two left feet, and get up close with a family of Jersey cows - all in about two hours.
No booking is necessary - simply turn up at the Town Hall on the day for a 10.30am start. (Please note there will be no walk on Liberation Day.) For information please telephone Tom on 07797 780868.
