TAR, BUT NO THANK YOU!

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.

BADSEY FLOWER SHOW 2018 IN PICTURES

Photographs taken by John Dallimore

Despite the hottest Summer on record Badsey Flower Show maintained its high standard of floral and vegetable exhibits.

The windy and showery weather put paid to many stallholders, and curtailed the performance from the 'Bubbleman'.

'Paws for thought' - You can always rely on the dog owners to 'show up'.

It may have been Leamington's second XI, but they sounded first-class to all the lover's of the uke.

And then the heaven's opened.

The calm after the storm meant the 'Bubbleman' could strut his stuff.
