Mayor invites civic leaders on a tour of the town
CIVIC leaders from across Warwickshire and the West Midlands were invited on a tour of the town by the Mayor of Rugby.
Cllr Sally Bragg welcomed the dignitaries at the Town Hall last Thursday (23 March) before the guests were taken on a guided tour.
The tour of the town centre included stops at The Close at Rugby School and the Webb Ellis Statue, and ended with a visit to Rugby Art Gallery and Museum, and the World Rugby Hall of Fame.
The visit was rounded off with refreshments at the Art Gallery and Museum, where Oliwia Dragon - a singer from one of the Mayor's charities, Rugby Area Talent Trust (RATT) - entertained the guests.
Cllr Bragg said: "I was delighted to welcome so many fellow mayors and council chairman to Rugby and help showcase the town's heritage with our Town Guides.
"It was also a wonderful opportunity to promote the World Rugby Hall of Fame, the Art Gallery and Museum, and one of my Mayoral charities, RATT.
"Oliwia sang a selection of beautiful songs and rounded off her performance with an apt rendition of Hall of Fame, by The Script."
