Imagine walking through Badsey in the 1880s? Then let the Badsey Society be your guide. As part of this year's Richard Phillips Lecture, Will Dallimore will give an illustrated talk on what you would have seen, and who you would have met in Badsey, at the time of the first Ordinance Survey map of 1883.

Before his untimely death, Richard Phillips was working on a project for the Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service, this involved discovering buildings that were shown on the early OS map. It is from Richard's findings that Will Dallimore will base his talk.

The first half of the lecture will feature Tom Locke, who will present similar discoveries from Wickhamford. The annual event is at 7.30pm on Friday 28th April 2017, at Badsey Sports and Social Club in Brewers Lane, Badsey. The evening is open to everyone.


Aldington poet, 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 customers.
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.
