Balsall Common Autumn Fair, Art Exhibition & Heritage Weekend

2IMG_0579b The Annual Temple Balsall Autumn Fete took place on the lawns of Temple House this weekend as part of the Temple Balsall Autumn Fair, Art Exhibition & Heritage Weekend.

All the usual attractions were there, including hot food, refreshments, games, plants, produce, children’s activities, toys, bric-a-brac, raffle and music from Birmingham Concert Band, joined by Balsall Common Lions club with their Ball in the Bog.

We were kept very busy, with everyone wanting a go, young and old, experiencing all emotions, seriousness, disappointment in some cases, (although we offered sweets as a consolation), through to elation when they got a ball in the bog and consequently won a ball.

That ‘Man in Red’ the Master of Ceremonies was happy to get his ball in….not sure what his other job is at Christmas time!

A great afternoon, at a well organised event
