Rob Ings
A Lichfield man is set to put his best foot forward to support a music event in the city. Rob Ings, who is one of Lichfield Arts’ management members, will walk 190 miles to raise funds for the Fuse community arts festival, which is celebrating its tenth Anniversary this July. The festival costs £30,000 to put on each year, so to help raise that money Rob is embarking on the Coast  to Coast Walk from St Bees in Cumbria to Robin Hood’s Bay in Yorkshire.  He plans to start the walk on March 20 and complete it on April 3. Anyone wanting to support Rob’s walk can call 01543 262223 or visit
