Residents urged to try Bromsgrove on foot

Bromsgrove Editorial 6th Jun, 2022   0

RESIDENTS are being urged to discover Bromsgrove district whilst keeping fit at the same time after new areas were added to the free health walks programme.

The weekly strolls are led by trained volunteers and aim to help people make new friends while improving their health.

Among the new routes are a gentle walk in Blackwell on Wednesdays at 10.30am, with people interested asked to meet outside St Catherine’s Church.

At 2pm on the same day, people will meet at the play area to walk through Oakalls and Harwood Park, while on Thursday’s people in Stoke Heath can meet at the Recreation Ground at 10.30am.




And existing walks are still available, including through Bromsgrove Sanders Park where participants meet at the kiosk at 10am every Monday.

In Lickey End people can join in with a stroll from the local Recreation Ground car park every Tuesday at 10am.


At the same time on Thursdays, Ruberys residents have a walk around the library and on Wednesdays at 2pm people set off from Wythall Park car park for their weekly walk.

Coun Michael Thompson, Bromsgrove District Council’s portfolio holder for leisure, culture and climate change, said: “Our district has some wonderful walks and views and this programme allows residents to discover what’s on their doorstep as well as keep fit and make new friends.”
