Walk a Country Mile with the Campaign to Protect Rural England and Jeremy Lefroy


Come and join the Staffordshire branch of the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) for a family-friendly stroll on Cannock Chase on Sunday 19 November. Jeremy Lefroy, MP for Stafford, is joining us to talk about any concerns you may have about the countryside and development.

Meet at 1:45pm outside the visitor centre at Marquis Drive (WS12 4PR), where Jeremy will be helping to plant a legacy tree to mark the launch of the UK’s new Charter for Trees, Woods and People. The walk will start at 2pm.

The route will be just over 1.5 miles on hard paths and is pushchair and wheelchair accessible. Walkers will have the opportunity to learn more about the CPRE’s work both locally and nationally, and there will be free colouring packs for children and a free raffle to win a luxury Christmas cake for adults or a selection box for children. War museum volunteers will also be available to give an optional talk about the history of Cannock Chase.

The registration fee is £5 for adults and £3 for children under 16 (£15 for a family ticket for two adults and up to three children). This includes a complimentary slice of cake and a hot drink in the café at the end of the walk.

Bookings can be made online at http://bit.ly/2iBiUwz. On-the-day prices are £6 for adults, £4 for children or £18 for a family ticket.

All money raised will help support the CPRE’s valuable work in protecting the countryside and safeguarding it for future generations.
