PET rats from across the country are coming together in Great Alne this weekend for a rat show organised by the Heart of England Rat Club (HERC).

The show is taking place at Great Alne and Kinwarton Memorial Hall on Saturday, June 21 for 10.30am with trade stands where owners can shop for their pets, fun events including a raffle and a quiz, as well as a chance for the rats to test their agility, and curiosity.

Visitors can learn more about keeping rats as pets, and have the chance to meet up with other HERC members and breeders.

Refreshments will be available, and anyone is welcome to go along and find out more.
