The August Bank Holiday weekend saw a welcome addition to the Badsey events calendar with the parish council supported Soapbox Derby on Knowle Hill. The event started with grey skies and the possibility of rain but despite this was well supported and spectators had an enjoyable afternoon. Ten carts were entered including three teams from Worcester, Stratford and Shipston on Stour. Badsey however produced the winner: Denzil Brunning in his cart, Blueturd. The day was finished off with many of the competitors and spectators enjoying themselves at the Wheatsheaf.
