Neville attended the Balsall Heath City Farm Spring Event in May 2019 where he shared his thoughts on the event.
If somebody had told me that one of the highlights of my year was going to be watching a lamb being sheared at Balsall Heath City Farm, I would have asked the barman to serve me whatever they were drinking. Yet there I was, smiling like a loon as a 1-year old Shetland Sheep had its first buzz cut, a smile that was mirrored on all of the faces around me.
It’s on days like today that I most miss living in Balsall Heath. Everyone coming together for a good cause, the diversity of the people around me and a real sense of community in the air.
