Special party to celebrate popular Rubery tea room's second anniversary

POPULAR Rubery tea room Polly Put the Kettle On held a special two-day party to celebrate its two-year anniversary last weekend.

As well as tea, coffee and cakes aplenty, the venue was decorated with bunting and welcomed a variety of vintage vehicles, including a tractor and two Austin 6s made down the road in Longbridge.

The staff were dressed as Second World War Land Girls, customers rose to the challenge to come in 1940s dress and there was also a performance from Search for a Star winner Joe James Thomas, who played some George Formby classics on the ukulele.

The event, last Saturday and Sunday (June 3 and 4), also generated £300 for the Polly’s Precious Moments charity which was launched by the tea room so residents with life-limiting illnesses and their families can enjoy an afternoon tea for free.

Susan O’Leary, who owns Polly Put the Kettle On, said everybody had a fantastic day.

“It was great to see the community come together to help us celebrate World War Two-style and wonderful to raise so much money for our charity,” she said.
