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.



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.
