TAYLOR MEASURE UP?
As a rule, on a
scale of one to ten, Mick Taylor is hopefully going to measure his success as
speaker at the inaugural Richard Phillips Memorial Lecture, by using not one
of the hundreds of scale rules, sectors and other miscellaneous devices in his
collection but by the number of people who come along to hear him at the
Badsey Community Sports and Social Club on Friday 27th May at 7.30pm. Local
collector, Mick, has one of the finest collections in the UK, and his
knowledge on these unique and rare instruments is second to none. The lecture
is the first of an annual series to remember Richard Phillips, who died last
year. Richard was a founder member of the Badsey Society, and had a background
in mathematical, as well as visual problem solving.
CAN I HAVE MY
BOOK BACK, PLEASE?
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
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.
