Comments from Cllr Peter Mcdonald:

I was proud to lead Rubery residents in a most successful campaign that managed to stop the County Council closing our Rubery Library. Not only were we successful it stopping its closure but the County Council have now agreed to replace the Library with a new one. The present Library will be demolished and a new one built fronting New Road (High Street) making it more visible and accessible to the public.

This emphasises Rubery’s community spirit and how the community came together to save what is at the heart of the community.
