Bon Voyage Billy …

Bon Voyage Billy …

Many of you will remember our badger, Billy, and his epic trip half way around the world with his friend, Mark.  Billy has his own page on this website and last year he was very lucky to visit India, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam and other exciting places, meeting new people, trying different food and new adventures – he even went diving with sharks!

Billy and Mark have now jetted off for a second world tour – they are planning to visit Burma and the US, amongst other places, and Billy has promised to send regular updates, photos and postcards whilst he is on his travels.  But this time Billy has taken his friend, Bertie – and Bertie is not coming back.  He has gone to live on the Banda islands, located in the Maluku province of Indonesia and with a population of a similar size to Henley.  There is a school on one of the islands, Banda Neira, and Bertie has emigrated to live with the children in the school so that he can get to know them, understand their culture and provide a link between their school and Badgemore.  Bertie took with him letters from all the children at Badgemore to their new pen-pals in Indonesia; the children were keen to share their pastimes and to tell the children on Banda what life and school is like in the United Kingdom.  We are all now eagerly awaiting replies from the children at school in Banda Neira – watch this space …
