Balsall Common Fun Run is co-ordinated by the Lily Mae Foundation
On behalf of The Lily Mae Foundation, I just wanted to say a massive “Thank You” for your tremendous support for the first ever Balsall Common Fun Run on Saturday 20th September as part of the Festival of Fun organised for that day. The Charity was asked by the Balsall Common Festival Committee to organise the Run for the benefit of all those living and working in Balsall Common.
The runners and marshals commented on the superb atmosphere that you created along the route and at the start and finish line at the Heart of England School. Thank you for the many donations that you gave to the runners to be passed on to our Charity. Thank you too for the drinks, sweets and chocolate that you handed to the runners as they passed your homes.
Balsall Common’s first ever Fun Run takes place this Saturday. Coordinated by the Lily Mae Foundation, it will be a fantastic day for the village. 500 runners, aged 11 to 82 will be taking part, the majority of them are Balsall Common residents. 45 marshals (mostly local people) are supporting the event too.
Inevitably with an event like this there will be some disruption. Road closures are necessary to keep runners safe. Details of the road closures are on the map below, in the latest issue of the Bugle, in the Festival programme and have been delivered to all affected households.
If there is an emergency on the day or you need advice before hand please contact Geoff Heaps of the Lily Mae Foundation on 07960 199184 or email@example.com

9 year old Dylan Baldwin flew the flag for Lady Katherine School at the Berkswell Royal British Legion on Friday 8th August as he won his place in the Finals of Balsall’s Got the Voice, the music talent section of this year’s Balsall Common Festival.
Dylan won the judges over with his rendition of OneRepublic’s well-known single Counting Stars, which saw him bravely take on significantly older and more experienced competition. Dylan now carries the hopes of Lady K into the finals at The Lant on Saturday 20th September 2014 and we all wish him well.
