THE 27th edition of The Bromsgrove Rousler has now been released and, once again, features articles on a variety of topics.

Contributors Wilf Lammas, Victor Crawford and Gwynneth Breillat examine, through their contributions, how farming, banking and the treatment of children has changed over the years.

Anita Bateman takes readers to India to see the differences between life in the army now and of days gone by and how a soldier bravely survived a World War I prison camp.

There is also The Clock House by Robin Shaw, the story of John Ashmore - billed as the Eddie Stobart of his day - and a piece on 'The Boulders of Bromsgrove'. That looks at a number of rocks found across the district.

The publication's editor Jenny Townshend said she was very pleased with the latest edition, which had been well-received by residents and would make a fine Christmas present.

"It was very satisfying putting it together.

"We are missing Waterstones in the High Street as it used to be one of our main stockists, but, despite that, sales are going very well."

The Rousler, priced at £2.50, is available at WH Smith, the Oxfam bookshop, Foto Factory and Worcester Road News in Bromsgrove town centre. It is also stocked at the Post Offices in Catshill, Fairfield and Stoke Prior, Willowbrook Garden Centre in Burcot, Tony's Handyman in Barnt Green and Kennedy's Hardware in Rubery.

* THE ROUSLER will also be among a range of new and nearly new Bromsgrove books available at the town's library, between 9am and 4pm tomorrow (Saturday).
