MORE than 200 families enjoyed a warm weather evening stroll at Moons Moat Ancient Monument last Wednesday as Church Hill Big Local Partnership launched its new walking routes.

The families were led by Tony Green, local historian, who shared his knowledge of the route throughout the walk.

On reaching the Ancient Monument site, the families were treated to a barbecue, very ably served up by Councillor Pat Witherspoon (Lab, Church Hill), and games for the children organised by Goalden Events.

Steve Betteridge, whose Green Spaces group organised the event, said: “It’s great to see so many families enjoying themselves like this. Thanks are due to many people, Steve Evans for the barbecue, Goalden Events for keeping the children amused for two hours and Tony Green who made the walk more interesting.”

Chris Thomas, community development worker with Church Hill Big Local added: “We were really pleased with the turnout and loads of positive comments as itr’s not just about gettign people out and about more but also about getting into the history of the area too.

“We’d also like to thank Redditch borough council’s placement team for all the work they’ve put in.”
