BEDBUG Recorder: The second edition of this occasional publication about Kingsclere history is now at the printers.

As with the first edition, it covers a wide range of Kingsclere history from rabbits as an industry to the warship adopted by Kingsclere during the Second World War.

It will make an excellent Christmas present for absent friends, so look out for it in the shops.
