EVENTS have been planned across the district to celebrate St George’s Day.

In Rubery, more than 20 shopkeepers in the village centre will participate in the English-themed window decorating competition, featuring St George’s paintings and bunting done by pupils from Beaconside and Holywell schools.

There will also be a special St George’s Day dinner of a traditional beef roast, apple pie and dinner cabaret - that event has already sold out.

The activities have been organised by the Rubery St George’s Society.

Chairman, John Chatwin, said “Our objective to increase our neighbourhood’s awareness of St George this year has been supported well by various members of the community and plans are already in hand for our 2015 activities.”

Those activities have been organised by Bromsgrove District Council and there will also be Easter events held as it is Easter Sunday.
