From Easter this year the Parish is 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.
Join tour guide Sue Hardy for 'Loyal and Royal - discover the French flavour of St Helier in this very British Island' on Thursday 6th June. St Helier has been at a cultural crossroads for centuries. The walk will include the Town Hall, St Helier's Parish Church, the Royal Square and the town centre, finding the history of Jersey's French connections through warfare and commerce, as well as government, everyday life and Jersey's loyalty to the Crown.
No booking is necessary - simply turn up at the Town Hall on the day for a 10.30am start.
For more information on any of the walks please telephone Tom on 07797 780868.
