PEOPLE out exercising in Bromsgrove are urged to find routes closer to home following reports of large crowds gathering in the town’s popular beauty spots.
Police are aware of large numbers of people using outdoor spaces like Sanders Park and the Lickey and Clent Hills.
Officers have been in touch with park officers at Bromsgrove District Council following public complaints.
Now the council is promoting other walks across the area in a bid to get people exercising closer to home.
Council Leader Karen May said: “Bromsgrove has one of the highest number of Covid-19 cases in the county so we need to pull together and think about our actions if we are going to make a difference.
“While I understand the need to get out and bout in the fresh air, there are lots of walking routes and places closer to home.
“By offering people alternative walks in different areas of Bromsgrove they can choose one closer to home and discover the delightful district on their doorstep.”
Walkers are also urged to get out at times which are quieter including earlier and later parts of the day, particularly at weekends.
