2014 community walk and pig roast

On Saturday 27 September 2014 you are invited to join the Barnt Green community walk and pig roast. In 2013, over 200 people of all ages took part in what Worcestershire’s Countryside Access Volunteer Officer, Amanda Hill, described as the best Community Walk in the county.

As in 2013, there will be four guided walks varying from 7 miles to 2.5 miles. The walks will start and finish at Millennium Park on Hewell Road, Barnt Green and take in many local beauty spots. All the walks should arrive back at Millennium Park at about 5:30pm in time for a pig roast (vegetarian options available). Individuals and families are invited to come along on the day and join in.
