Perry Beeches the Academy are holding a 'Santa Dash' which will be taking place on the 25th November 2013.
180 pupils of Perry Beeches The Academy will dress in Santa suits and run from One Stop Shopping Centre to The Academy on Beeches road, in order to raise money for the school.
I have been assured by District Transport Engineers that they and organisers have considered all the aspects of the event taking place on the highway and that they have put into place any necessary actions to ensure that the race is run safely. West Midlands Police will be stopping traffic as and when required in the form of rolling closures, to ensure that those pupils taking part will cross roads safely.
I have asked that motorists are inconvenienced as little as possible.
The race will start at 11.00 at One Stop. I hope they have a good time and raise the money they need well done to all those taking part.
