Bernews: Walkers, Markel Teams Make Difference For BNT
A Bermuda National Trust [BNT] nature reserve and a museum have benefitted from the time and energy of teams from Walkers Limited and Markel this month.
A spokesperson said, “A team of 45 staff from Walkers [Bermuda] Limited spent a day tree planting, removing trash and clearing pathways at BNT’s Gilbert Nature Reserve in Sandys.”
“We are always delighted to have corporate groups help us to maintain and enhance the nature reserves that we hold in trust for the Bermuda community,” said Myles Darrell, Head of Natural Heritage. “With over 250 acres of open space in the Trust’s care, this support is very important to us.
“During the day we planted more than 100 native and endemic trees, shrubs and ground covers. If you are in the Somerset area, enjoy a walk through the Anita Wingate trail and take in the diversity and splendor of this lovely green space.”
“This was a fantastic day out for the Walkers team and we are proud to support the National Trust in its wonderful work in conserving and enhancing Bermuda’s special natural landscape. The team very much enjoyed spending time outdoors and working together on something tangible that will hopefully be of real benefit to the local community and environment,” said Rachel Nightingale, Walkers Charity Committee Chair.
