The second Badsey Soapbox Derby,
organised by Badsey and Aldington Parish Council, takes place on Sunday 27th
August. Scrutineering of the 15 entries takes place from 10.30 am outside the
Wheatsheaf Inn. The first timed run is scheduled to begin at 1pm, with a
second timed run at 2pm. Prizes will be presented back at the Wheatsheaf after
the event has finished. The downhill course, which starts on the Badsey side
of Knowle Hill, takes in two sharp bends and a hump-back bridge.
CAN I HAVE MY
BOOK BACK, PLEASE?
Brian Smith, is asking anyone who bought his first book of poetry, "From
Down Sands Lane to Cuckoo Bridge" if they would like to sell it back to
him for the original purchase price of £5.
The poetry book, the first of two, sold out completely a couple of years ago.
Since then Mr. Smith produced a second book of poetry, and it was the
production of this second book, "From Packs Meadow to Pear Tree
Corner", that led to a renewed interest in the first.
So Brian is trying to buy back clean copies of the book to supply to waiting
Due to high printing costs for small runs of books it would not be viable for
Brian to print extra books. The proceeds from the profit obtained from both
books was donated to Badsey School and Badsey Church.
