Several huge rugby balls have appeared in Rugby to celebrate the World Cup this autumn. The caption on the plaque explains it well:
Rugby’s got balls. Celebrating the Rugby World Cup 2015. Art project created by Ann Crearie, Leanne Gilroy and Kate Embley Thomas of kookooshaboo. Manufactured by DP Mouldings Ltd. Funded by Rugby Borough Council. Artwork created by pupils from local schools.
This one stands just outside the Clock Towers Shopping Centre and was attracting a lot of attention from passers by, many of whom were having their photo taken beside it. The picture on the ball shows the clock tower in Rugby Market Place and other local scenes.
Do send us your photo of any of the others (five in total I believe).
