Partners combine for healthy Halloween

Shriek chic for Halloween-themed walk.

Walkers are invited to turn back the shock and take part in a Halloween themed walk in Solihull this week.

Public transport co-ordinator Centro and healthy lifestyle experts the Health Exchange will be leading the walk around the borough’s Tudor Grange Park on Thursday October 30th from 5.30pm.

The free event will take in local green spaces and be lit by pumpkins to get walkers in the scary spirit. Attendees are asked to dress in shriek chic and bring torches for the evening walk which is open to all ages.

Cllr Judith Rowley, Centro’s lead member for fair, accessible and sustainable transport, said: “This walk gives people the opportunity to meet up, get some exercise and explore parts of the local area. Having a spooky theme to mark Halloween will add to the fun and hopefully people of all ages will join us for the event.”

The event will begin at 5.30pm at Tudor Grange Leisure Centre, Bloomfield Road and last up to one hour.

The walk forms part of the Smart Network, Smarter Choices project, a partnership between Centro and the region’s seven district councils which aims to cut carbon, boost the economy and connect residents to jobs.
