Bromsgrove District Council has joined forces with Redditch Borough Council for the month, which is being formally launched by Redditch mayor, Councillor Alan Mason, at an event at Redditch Town Hall on February 1.

Councillor Mark Bullivant said: “I am really pleased to see our united cross-party collaboration for this annual event with Redditch Borough Council continuing, and it’s great to see it in Bromsgrove for the fourth time.

"It has become more and more popular each year and those attending previous events have confirmed how it gives them a sense of recognition, value and inclusion in the community.”
