A local group is gearing up to host the first Chasewater Day.

Taking place between 10am and 3pm on 10th August, the event has been organised by the Chasewater Friends group.

It will be a chance for local people to learn more about the country park, with music, games, storytelling and crafts sessions on offer.

Secretary Susan Williams said she hoped to see plenty of families bringing picnics to enjoy a fun day out.

“The friends all know what a fantastic place Chasewater is and we want to help spread the word,” she said.

“We are keeping our fingers crossed that the weather will be kind and hope that lifelong Chasewater lovers along with people visiting for the first time will join together in a great community event.”

A shuttle bus will be operating during the day to bring people to and from Heath Hayes, Norton Canes and through Burntwood to the pedestrian bridge over the Burntwood bypass at the end of Church Street.

New trustee, John Griffin, said: “Chasewater is such a fantastic place for local people to enjoy, take time out and get a bit of rest and relaxation.

“For the more adventurous, Chasewater also has a whole range of sporting and other activities going on and Chasewater Day will give an opportunity for people to see just how much is on offer there.”
