THE Green Fair is making a welcome return to Arrow Valley Countryside Park this summer.

The popular free event which is organised in partnership with Redditch Lions is scheduled for Sunday, July 7 and will feature a variety of family fun, community stalls and workshops.

Entertainment includes a Punch and Judy show, wildlife craft workshops hosted by Worcestershire Wildlife Trust, a circus skills workshop, and an arts and crafts activity bus.

Portfolio holder for Leisure, Councillor Juliet Barker Smith, said: “We are excited at the annual return of the Green Fair to Arrow Valley Countryside Centre.

“This year’s event is packed full of great activities for people of all ages, and stalls giving local businesses and creatives the chance to showcase their work and talents.”

Halfords, which is headquartered in Redditch, will be offering free bike repairs to promote sustainable transport and promoting its Cycle2Work scheme which can be accessed by employees working at participating companies.

Leader of the council, Coun Joe Baker, said: “The Green Fair is an excellent summer event which always proves to be popular amongst residents of all ages.

“We are pleased to be working in partnership with the Redditch Lions on this year’s event and I look forward to attending.”
