Tower of Refuge walk to take place this month

Mon, 10 May 2021

The Tower of Refuge walk will take place on Friday, May 28.

The walk is in aid of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.

Douglas Town Centre Manager Oliver Cheshire said: ‘This year the Tower of Refuge walk falls on the Spring bank holiday weekend, so is the ideal opportunity to support the event by walking out to this famous landmark and raise funds for the RNLI.

‘In 2020 we had to cancel the walk because of Covid, so we’re anticipating even greater interest this year. In celebration that the walk will hopefully be going ahead this year – and in a nod to current travel restrictions – there’s a “Hawaiian getaway to a Covid-free destination” theme to the walk, so it’ll be a great excuse for some truly tropical-looking shirts to wear with the wellies.

The walk is open to all ages, but children must be accompanied by an adult. Suitable clothing and footwear must be worn and instructions from the coastguards and stewards followed at all times.

Subject to weather and tidal conditions the walk will start around 6.30pm. Access to the beach will be via either the steps at the Bottleneck car park or any steps north of Broadway.
