Ralph and Elizabeth Bolland's annual charity event for 2016 features yet another comedy film from the Badsey brothers, Will and John Dallimore. Coalfinger is a spoof James Bond thriller starring Ralph Bolland as Ralph Bond, James's country cousin. Elizabeth Bolland appears as Miss Moneybags. Once more the villain is played by John Dallimore. The five minute family friendly movie was written and directed by Will Dallimore.

Apart from watching the movie, there is a chance to see Ralph's extensive garden model railway, and partake in a James Bond theme music quiz. Coffee, tea and hot mince pies are also on offer. 

The event takes place at 17 Binyon Close, Badsey WR11 7EY on Wednesday 30th November, Thursday 1st December and Friday 2nd December, between 5.30pm and 7.30pm. Entry is free, but a donation toward St. James' Church, Badsey and the 1st Badsey Scout Building project would be appreciated. Walkers can access the venue via the back gate in Fields Close (no cars), or from Binyon Close, where parking is available.





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.
