Queen’s Jubilee organisers in Balsall Common hunt for help

The Balsall Common Lions are entering the final throes of preparations for their big Queen’s Jubilee celebrations at the Lant on Meeting House Lane. If the weather allows, the family friendly event which takes place on Tuesday 5th June could be the biggest community event Balsall Common has ever witnessed.

 

Due to the constant expansion of the event there’s still a number of roles for which help is needed in the final days leading up to the event, painting signs and banners, then on the day with set up and take down and onwards into the morning after. Other tasks include the transport of equipment and tables, help running stalls, marshalling and collection tin-rattling. The Lions are hoping to recruit sufficient volunteers from the community to make light work for everybody involved on the day.

Balsall Common charity recruiting for Queen’s Jubilee celebrations

The Balsall Common Lions are finalising plans to put on a giant free party to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee on Tuesday 5th June and are now looking for volunteers to help make it a success.

 

There is a wide range of roles which need filling to ensure the smooth operation of the event throughout the day from set up to take down and Lions President Marie-Louise Marsden is keen to hear from anyone who thinks they can help out, even if it’s only for a couple of hours carrying and lifting, serving refreshments, setting up tents, or marshalling cars in the afternoon. The Lions would also be happy to hear from anyone who thinks they’d enjoy a bit of tin shaking to help raise funds for local causes.

 

Although this event is free for visitors to attend, event organisers are hoping to raise funds, all proceeds will be directed back into local community projects.
