Plenty of eco-themed activities as Green Family Fun Day comes to Bromsgrove's Sanders Park

A GREEN family fun day with a sustainable, eco-friendly theme will be coming to Bromsgrove next Sunday, August 14.

The event, from 12pm to 4.30pm boasts free family-friendly stalls, entertainment and displays for everyone to enjoy.

Throughout the day, there will be a range of demonstrations, including circus skills with Juggling Jim and a variety of other fun children’s activities.

Visitors will also get to see ‘Sparky’ the Robot which is made completely from recycled materials and crowds will be entertained – and exercised – by this year’s special feature – live music from a pedal powered stage.

The music will be provided by nine-piece party band, Brass Beatz.

Tom Evans from Reaction Bike Power said: “Come along and get some exercise by powering the band and learning about the value of a Watt at the same time.

“All the power for the music is provided by the audience cycling on stationary bikes.

“It’s really something special.

“You’ll be surprised how well it works and might even wonder why all events don’t do this.”

An electric car display has been organised by garages across the district to showcase their benefits.

Admission is free and there is parking on site but residents are encouraged to walk or take public transport to reduce their carbon footprint.

Coun Michael Thompson, portfolio holder for leisure, culture and climate change, said meeting environmental challenges could not be achieved by central or local government alone.

“It is achieved as a community and, hence, the green fun day is a way we can all learn together.”

“Being greener doesn’t have to be difficult, all it takes is a bit of creative thinking – like a pedal-powered stage – and small changes in our day to day lives to make a big difference.”
