Pupils at the Heart of England School have been busy working on a magnificent despicable giant mural for Balsall Common’s big bonfire and fireworks display, to be held at The Lant on Saturday 8th November, in a joint venture staged by the local Lions and Berkswell & Balsall Common Sports Association. In true Lions tradition the giant mural is set for a short life-span, scheduled as it is for destruction in flames at the front of this year’s bonfire.
