Living Streets’ Tranquility Walk reveals Guernsey at its best

July 25th, 2012 by Living Streets Guernsey

This year’s Living Streets Tranquillity Walk took place on Sunday 15 July 2012 when 54 islanders (including 6 children and two dogs) walked from The Longfrie Inn in St. Pierre du Bois through the lanes and green lanes down to the Pearl Centre at Fort Grey and then back again through the Torteval Lanes.

Tom Le Pelley, Chair of Living Streets, said “we were really lucky with the weather – lovely sunshine and a nice breeze – ideal walking weather! Many on the walk said they were unfamiliar with this part of the island and, in particular, very few had visited the beautiful Silbe Nature Reserve which was our first port of call.

Other places of interest were the Moulin de Quanteraine (the water wheel) and the newly developed Torteval Jubilee Walk near the church.

High up overlooking Fort Grey and Rocquaine Bay we saw a field of Guernsey donkeys – as depicted on one of our Guernsey Country Walks cards.

Most walkers took two hours to do the circular route which included a refreshment break at the Pearl Centre and everybody said they really enjoyed it.

Living Streets Guernsey raised £524 which will go towards our Baubigny Schools pathway project – the safe route through the countryside for pupils living in St. Peter Port North.

Living Streets would like to thank everyone who took part and raised sponsorship funds. A big thank you also to the marshals – those who dealt with registrations and those who ensured no one got lost along the way.
