This November we commemorate one hundred years since the end of World War One. There are various events planned in Badsey to mark this occasion. On Tuesday 6th November Mary Dore's Over 60's Club's meeting at the Pub Inn a Club will be a 'war-themed' afternoon. Members are asked to come in appropriate dress for WW1. Local ukulele group the Chordites will be singing songs from the first and second world war.

A similar event happens at the same venue on Friday 9th November at 11.30am (ending at 3pm) when for a 5 note you get a ploughman's lunch, entertainment, and a game of bingo. It has been organised by Tracey as one of her 'Lonely Over 60's' get-togethers. Period costume encouraged.

In the evening of Friday 9th November the Badsey Society will be launching their latest book called Peace, War & Remembrance by Maureen Spinks at Badsey Church. Among the speakers will by Professor Stephen Badsey, one of the nation's leading military authors. Start time 7.30pm.

On Saturday 10th November between 10am and 4pm there will be a WW1 exhibition at Badsey Church run by the Badsey Society.

On Sunday 11th November there will be the traditional Remembrance Day Service at Badsey Church.



The word on the street is that the re-surfacing of the road in Old Post Office Lane a few weeks ago was somehow responsible for the blockage of a sewer pipe.
