Gentleshaw Common
Lichfield and Burntwood residents are being invited to join a winter walk on Gentleshaw Common. The event, which takes place from 3pm to 4.45pm on December 18, will be led by Lichfield District Council’s biodiversity officer Chris Walsh. The two-mile circular walk will take in the common’s forest, heaths and marshes. It will also include a hot drink and a mince pie. Chris said: “This walk is for all abilities and is a good opportunity to be guided around the wintry common. “The sunset is really beautiful at this time of year, so I hope lots of people will join me in seeing it. “Please remember to wrap up warm and wear sturdy shoes or boots, and bring a torch.” The walk will set off from The Windmill pub in Gentleshaw, and costs £2.50. To find out more, or to book your place, please call Denice Deverall on 01543 308183 or email
