Elizabeth and Ralph Bolland are not only expecting visitors from the local area to come along to their Santa Special Charity Evenings this year, but also two visitors from Mars. Zork and Ma Marbles (Ma is short for Martianess) will be dropping in at the Bolland's Badsey home for the premiere of their latest film 'Brief Encounters of the Third Kind Meet the Railway Children'. This short movie, written and produced by Will and John Dallimore, also features Ellie Bolland, who won her spot in the film by winning last year's 'Bond Movie' competition. There is also the opportunity to view the previous four films in the series.

The three charity evenings, from Wednesday 29th November to Friday 1st December between 5.30pm to 7.30pm, include the chance for the young, and not so young, to marvel at Ralph's outdoor model railway, plus a mince pie and a cup of coffee or tea inside. Entrance is free, with all donations made given to the Friends of Badsey Church Fund Raise. The venue is 17 Binyon Close, Badsey, WR11 7EY, with car parking available in Binyon Close. Walkers can also access via Fields Close.
