One stroll through the Alrewas site will focus on the range of flora and fauna, while a second will explore the Arboretum’s connections to World War One.

Both take place on May 18.

The three-mile ‘walk on the wild side’ will set off from the Millennium Chapel at 10am. Participants will also have the opportunity to try pond-dipping.

The ‘World War One Story Walk’ sets off from the same place at 2pm.

Admisson is £3 per person. For more details call 01283 245 100.
