Occupation to Liberation : guided walk

Occupation to Liberation : guided walk

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 Martin Walton for 'Occupation to Liberation' on Thursday 2nd May. Jersey was occupied by the Germans throughout World War 2. Visit sites around St Helier's harbour, with poignent reminders of events from both the Occupation and Liberation of the Island. Hear what really happened during those fateful days.

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 more information on any of the walks please telephone Tom on 07797 780868.
