RESIDENTS in Wellesbourne will no longer be entitled to free admission to Charlecote Park.

The National Trust is to stop offering passes allowing Wellesbourne and Walton residents to visit the house and grounds for free on Wednesdays.

The trust says the village is getting too large to continue the scheme which will end next year.

Charlecote Park manager Stephen Bennett said: “The scheme will finish in February 2017.

“We will continue to explore opportunities for maintaining strong community links with residents in our activities and programming moving forward and plan to meet with the parish council over the next few months to discuss these possibilities further.”

WELLESBOURNE Wheelers are inviting people to jump into the saddle with them.

The cycling group, formed a year ago, is keen to welcome new members. They currently meet on a Thursday for a 35 to 40 mile trip which takes around four hours with a lunch stop to break the distance up.

The ladies group has also started cycling a 15 mile route on Thursday mornings.

The group is also hoping to start a Sunday morning ride.
