Continuous rain throughout the two timed rounds failed to dampen the spirits of the large crowd at the third annual Badsey Soapbox Races, organised by the Badsey and Aldington Parish Council. 



Badsey looked like being left without Saturday soccer this season however Cheltenham team, Charlton Rovers, have made the Badsey Recreation Club ground their home for the 2018-19 season. Rovers, who were Division One champions of the North Gloucestershire Senior League last season, are currently fundraising to re-develop the soccer pitch at Shipton Oliffe, where they will move to next season. Charlton Rovers next league fixture at Badsey is on Saturday 8th September at 3pm against Tuffley Rovers Reserves.

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.
