Lord Mayor's Show

Sue and Keith have been to Cannon Hill Park to see the Lord Mayor's Show.
The main objective was to see the Longbridge and Frankley Kickz teams take part in a 6-a-side tournament which takes place in an inflatable pitch.
The weather was not too bad when we got there but after a couple of hours it really deteriorated. The lads kept at it full pelt, there is no mercy shown during the matches which last 6 minutes.
We bumped into the Lord Mayor and 2 former Mayors, Cllr Randall Brew and Cllr Mike Sharpe, all with their respective wives in tow. The ladies had a bit more sense that the men and enjoyed a nice cuppa in the refreshment tent.
We will bring you the result of the tournament as soon as we can.
