DUDLEY Archdeacon Fred Trethewey has been hitting the road for charity with a two-wheeled tour of Stourbridge region churches.

The roving rev took in ten churches during a bike ride which started in Hagley and headed through the heart of Stourbridge to Amblecote, Wollaston and Lye.

The journey was part of the Ride and Stride initiative which encouraged church members to visit each other's buildings and raise sponsor cash for restoration and maintenance.

Archdeacon Fred said: “It is always nice to be able to go and appreciate some of our beautiful church buildings as a tourist and Ride and Stride provides a great excuse to get my bike out.

"I especially appreciated the coffee and bacon rolls that I was given at Oldswinford church."

During his trip around the region, which took place during Ride and Stride weekend of September 8 and 9, the Archdeacon visited St Saviour's, Hagley, St John's, Hagley, St Peter's, Pedmore, St Andrew's, Wollescote, Christchurch, Lye, St Mary's, Oldswinford, St Thomas's, Stourbridge, Holy Trinity, Amblecote, St James's, Wollaston and St Michael and All Angels, Norton.
