This was our second year we have jointly organised this event with Berkswell & Balsall Common Sports Community Association and what a great night we all had. The Bonfire burnt quickly, the Fireworks were greeted with many oohs, ahhhs and bangs, the standard of entries as usual to the Guy competition was very high, making it very difficult for Lion President Andy to pick a winner.
Thank You to the 6th form students from the Heart of England School who worked so hard on producing a fantastic bonfire mural based on the Disney/Pixar film Inside Out. They were very upset watching their fantastic artwork going up in smoke!
Thank You also to the stallholders who came along to provide food and refreshments and all our other volunteers who worked so hard helping us with the setup and during the evening.
The event raised funds for many local causes, and the organisers would like to give special thanks to Simon Burt The Estate Agent who sponsored the bonfire and Alan Heath and Sons Bathrooms our raffle sponsors and all the other raffle prize sponsors.
Finally a Big Thank You to the residents of Balsall Common and the surrounding areas, for their fantastic support coming along and making it a night to remember.
