Bumble Hole Nature Reserve Guided Walks and Fundraiser

On: Sunday 5 June 2016 11am to 2pm (followed by optional Sunday lunch)

At: Bumble Hole Nature Reserve, Windmill End, Netherton, Dudley DY2 9HU

The Friends of Bumble Hole Nature Reserve and SVI have teamed up to hold a fund raising day and audio described guided walk of this very interesting historical canal side location. Previously at the heart of the Black Country manufacturing industry, the scenery has recovered from its dreary, scarred and gloomy appearance to its tranquil relaxed atmosphere of today.

Norman our guide will help us to uncover relics of the past and his tales will bring the rich history of the site back to life. The guided walks are on proper paths, quite short and will last around 45 minutes each – starting at 11am and 12pm – each walk takes in a different part of the reserve. If you prefer, you can just come along and enjoy the day strolling around the canal side at your own pace.

Bring your family and friends, the more the merrier. The Friends of Bumble Hole will be running a bric-a-brac stall, a raffle and selling cakes and other light refreshments to all visitors to the centre as part of the fund raising effort so there will be no shortage of things to do. Your support will help us to raise much needed funds for SVI and to share the beauty of Bumble Hole – we would love to see you there.

If you aren’t sure how to get there and want to book transport from West Bromwich Bus Station or Oldbury Library, call the SVI office before 1 June and we will help you to set up shared transport.

After the day’s activities at Bumble Hole have ended, we have arranged an optional Sunday lunch at 2pm at Ma Pardoe’s [the Old Swan] in Netherton – places are limited so let us know if you want to stay for a late lunch.

The guided walks are free, however transport and lunch are at an extra charge and due to numbers are strictly on an advance booked basis. So call or email SVI by 1 June on 0121 525 4810 or email Sandra@sandwellvisuallyimpaired.org.uk.

A sincere thank you to the Friends of Bumble Hole who have worked hard to make this event and audio described guided walk accessible and interesting to blind and partially sighted visitors.
