MEMBERS of the Rubery Tattoo committee would like to thank everybody who turned out for the latest event honouring troops around the world, which was held on April 21.

The tattoo, which included a parade to St Chad’s Park, was successful despite theweather.Heavyrainled to the event having to finish prematurely, one hour earlier than originally planned.

Let’s hope for better weather in the village when Rubery Festival takes place on Sunday, September 9.
