Quarterly Badsey Society newsletter sent to members. Events: Badsey Flower Show and Badsey Village Walk. Badsey Flower show suffered very wet weather but we still had visitors to our stand and many members won cups/trophies.

David Caswell recounted stories of his blacksmithing family during the last three generations.
