We visited Sandwell Valley Country Park to explore the area and to see the type of facilities they have on offer. We all piled into the minibus on a fresh, sunny Thursday morning armed with bread for the ducks, a flask of hot chocolate and a large bag of marshmallows. The journey lasted about 15 minutes. (You can catch the number 54 bus from Faraday Avenue and it drops you just outside the park, this takes a little longer.)
First stop, a walk up to the lake to feed the ducks , geese and swans. We were very popular with the wildlife.
Then off to the park.
“Come on slow coach, catch me if you can!”
