Balsall Common Lions donate a new Tree for the Village
The village used to have a tree on this site but sadly it had to be removed for health & safety reasons due to pavement upheaval. Working in conjunction with Bruce Brant from Solihull MBC, Balsall Common Lions agreed to provide a replacement tree for the site.
SMBC prepared the site again and recommended a Sweet Gum (Liquidambar styraciflua ‘Slender Silhouette’). We hope this proves to be a legacy to the Village from the Lions.
The main picture shows Balsall Common Lions members Brian Hornsby, Stan Shakeshaft, President Dave Blakeman & Andy Pemberton.
Thank you to SMBC for their help and advice and getting involved with us on this project.
In memory of Lions Peter and Sonia Hebblethwaite
These flagpoles were erected with support from Balsall Common Lions Club in memory of Lions Peter and Sonia Hebblethwaite both members of our club and Sonia was a Committee member of Berkswell & District Royal British Legion, where we also hold all our Meetings.
