Transcription of article


An interesting concert was given in the Old School, Badsey, on October 29th. There was a very large audience, and the proceeds, which amounted to £2 17s. 9d., were used for various needs in connection with the Church and Choir of Badsey such as new surplices, books, etc., etc. The programme included a pianoforte duet by the Vicar and Mrs. Price, a guitar piece by Miss H. Ashwin, Miss Preston, and Miss C. Savory, violoncello solo by Miss P. Lindsay Watson, a vocal duet by Rev. C. W. A. and Miss Preston, readings by Mr. J. Sladden and Captain Wilding, pianoforte solo by Miss May Cull, violin solo by Mr. Edwin Warner, and songs by Miss H. Bell, Miss Preston and the Vicar. Some pieces were also given on a gramophone, kindly lent by Mr. Eccles, of Evesham. The platform was very prettily decorated with some beautiful plants, kindly lent by Mr. C. A. Binyon. We are very much obliged to all those who gave us their help in connection with the concert.
