How does a rich, glamorous widow decide which brother to marry? She asks for your help. That is what you will be invited to do at this year's Santa Special Garden Model Railway Charity event. 
Ralph and Elizabeth Bolland have once more commissioned the Dallimore Brothers to produce a short movie to add to your enjoyment at their charity evenings in Binyon Close, Badsey.
The movie is a musical - a love story with songs, sung by Ralph Bolland and Veronica. At the end of the movie you will be asked to fill in a form suggesting whom Maggie, the rich widow, should marry. Is it Derek, the station master, useful, but boring, or his twin brother Eric, the bus driver, tight with his money, but loose with his morals. The person who suggests the best reasons for their decision will be declared winner.
The evening also includes the usual look at the garden based railway layout, coffee and mince pies, plus a musical competition to identify snatches of well known (and not so well known) Xmas songs. 
The charity event, in aid of Badsey Church and the Badsey Scout Group HQ Refurbishment takes place on the evenings of December 2nd, 3rd and 4th, at 17 Binyon Close, between 5.30pm and 7.30pm.
Admission is free, but donations are welcomed. Car parking available in Binyon Close only, but people on foot can also use the access in Field Close.
