Solihull Age UK have a number of great fundraising events this Autumn.
First off, a couple of afternoon tea events will host guest speakers to inform and entertain.
The first event will welcome Bill Farnsworth to the new Marco’s Italian restaurant at the Holiday Inn, Birmingham Airport on Friday September 25 from 2:30 – 4pm. Bill has an interesting story to tell about how he gained an appetite for catering, which saw him working at The Savoy, London. The talk also includes the history of The Savoy and its various characters, as well as facts about its neighbour, The Savoy Theatre.
Secondly, Peter Hawthorne will be doing a talk about The Dickin Medal at Hogarths, Four Ashes Road, Solihull on 14 November from 1pm – 3pm. The Dickin medal is the highest award given to animals for bravery in war and Peter will be telling some inspiring stories.
Both Events are priced at £15 each with tickets available only in advance by calling 0121 704 3361 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
If you fancy testing your general knowledge, why not go along to their quiz event on Wednesday 23 September at Wetherspoons, The Assembly Rooms, Poplar Rd, Solihull. Arrive at 7:30pm for a 8pm start. Entry fee is £5 per person with teams of 6 people maximum. Call 0121 704 3361 to book your place. No mobile phones!

It’s Beach Party time this Saturday (15th August 2015) as everything goes outside for the Railway Inn’s annual live music and Party-fest.
The Railway Inn’s summer parties next to Berkswell railway station are a popular feature in the village calendar, with this year’s event enjoying the now traditional outdoor stage and tented bar-space front-of-house to compliment the usual weekend scenes.
At lease three winners at this year’s edition of Balsall’s Got the Voice will get to spend time laying down their music at Shabby Road Studios after this September’s finals at The Balsall Common Festival. Organisers are on the hunt for applicants to fill the one remaining qualifying heat at the Berkswell & District Royal British Legion on Friday 21st August 2015.
The competition details and rules can be found here:
