On Sunday 3 June an organised walk to Lot’s Wife’s Ponds took place as part of the Festival of Walking sponsored by the St Helena Tourist Office.

This walk one of two given a ‘difficult’ rating on the 8 day schedule of walks.
Ten people took part and one dog, all led by Frank Wastell. The conditions were clear and bright with hardly any breeze. Starting at 10.30am the group reached the Ponds just on midday. Most people took advantage of a refreshing swim, with some coming equipped with masks and snorkels.

This was day 3 of the Festival of Walking. The programme of events continues on day 4 with the Ladder challenge, coinciding with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations which will be taking place in the Parade Square, Jamestown. It will start at 5pm. The Ladder challenge record currently stands at 5:17:46 mins.
