FORGE Mill Needle Museum will be flinging its doors wide open this Sunday for Heritage Open Day.

There will be free admission from 11am to 4pm on September 15 and the volunteers will be out in force to show people around.

Motor bikes from the Royal Enfield Owners Club

Model boats from the Little Radford Model Boat Club.

Live music from Redditch’s very own Indigo Arts.

An exhibition from the Redditch Local History Society reprising ‘The River Arrow – Flowing through Redditch History’
