Fall for Kings Heath

With Summer well and truly out of the door and the brightly coloured flowers are beginning to turn brown at the edges, the place will soon be awash with a blanket of rusty burnt orange leaves! Sounds lovely right? And, we’ve got a fantastic seasonal challenge for you to help celebrate Autumn in Kings Heath!

This Autumn we’re going to paint the town red, orange, yellow, green and every other colour you can think of by launching our ‘Fall for Kings Heath’ competition!

We are calling on the children of Kings Heath to help ‘plant some trees’ in the local businesses by decorating their very own leaf!  With the wonderfully decorated leaves being incorporated into our very lovely Autumn Trail, which we will challenge the little ones to find over the half-term!

First things first, we need your help to decorate the lovely leaves which we will line our Autumn Trail! To take part in this activity and submit a leaf to be included in the Fall for Kings Heath Autumn Trail you can download a template to decorate here, or they are also available for collection from the following businesses:

The leaves can be decorated in any manner, we are leaving this to the artist’s interpretation here, however, to be included in the trail they must be returned to the Kings Heath Library no later than October 22nd.

The next part of our October extravaganza will see all the decorated leaves exhibited in local businesses to form our Fall for Kings Heath Trail! The trail will launch Friday 26th October, and all your little leaf hunters will be tasked to find the hidden leaves and their corresponding numbers as part of the trail!

To participate in the trail all you have to do is pick up a trail form from The Kings Heath Library anytime after the 26th October or simply download your own here, then you’re ready to start leaf hunting! Once completed your little Autumn explorers can return their trail forms back to the Library by November 10th, and all completed and correct forms will be entered into a raffle to win lots of lovely prizes!

Winners will be contacted by telephone after November 10th and shared via social media.

We are so excited for Autumn and we hope you are too!
