A LONG-RUNNING Evesham charity showcased the work it has been doing to benefit town residents since the 18th century during a visit from MP Nigel Huddleston.

The Mid Worcestershire MP visited John Martin’s Charity in Queen’s Road and learned more about how Mr Martin’s will is still benefitting many residents of Evesham today.

Charity chairman Nigel Lamb, clerk John Daniels and trustee Julie Westlake updated Mr Huddleston on all they are doing to help people locally

Those in need, from providing an essential washing machine to helping every Evesham student going to university could benefit from the charity and every application will be considered.

“Evesham benefits hugely from John Martin’s will and through the hard work of those associated with the charity, it will continue to do so in the months and years to come,” Mr Huddleston added.

RESIDENTS across Wychavon are being offered free training to enable them to become health walk leaders.

Health walks are free short weekly organised group walks and can be either 30 minutes or an hour. The aim is to encourage people who are inactive moving but they’re open to anyone.

Enthusiastic, friendly people are needed and only need to commit a few hours a month alongside attending a training day. The next walk leader training session is on Tuesday from 9.45am to 3pm at Westlands Community Hall in Droitwich.

Everyone will receive follow up support and a training manual and a certificate, booking is essential.
