Stuart has been supporting the Trust for several years now, compering the Picnic in the Park and so it is brilliant to be able to formally recognise this support and hopefully involve him with more of our activities, when he can fit them in to his busy schedule. Stuart has told us that: “Warley Woods is very special to me. It’s my own little bit of countryside on my urban doorstep, a place for me to walk, think, listen to music, try to get fit, as well as enjoy my regular Saturday morning bacon buttie and occasionally even try and improve my terrible golf skills. I am delighted to be a patron”
Stuart Maconie has become the fourth Patron of the Community Trust, joining Colin Buchanan, Professor Carl Chinn and Julie Walters.
We have the third and final cross country competition taking place at Warley Woods this winter on Saturday. It is the West Midlands Schools Championships. A much smaller event than the other two with staggered start times for competitors, but the course will still take up most of the meadow. If you like a quiet walk, then please come early or late. If you like cross country – please cheer all the youngsters on. Racing runs 10am – 1pm.
