    What an excellent, beautifully produced, easy to navigate, online magazine.

    If so, thats maybe why you might miss getting an article into the Sedgeberrow Post on time.

    We have to admit that the increased gap, caused by being bi-monthly, makes timing a little complicated for article and minute writers. It does though significantly reduce the pressure on the time commitment of the busy twenty two villagers who generously arrange the rhythm of their lives around dropping the Post onto your doormat.

    You can get rhythm though! Please look at these 2013 copy deadlines:

    14th July. 15th Sept. 17th Nov Take the floor, swirl into action, plot and plan your meetings so

    that you are left with time to catch the Sedgeberrow Post. Pen your articles with an eye on those magic dates.

    Do you lack Rhythm?

    All sorts of Sauce That challenged Lea & Perrins

    with Evesham Relish

    In the Feb/March Post I asked what readers knew about Evesham Relish and how it stood up against the clearly much more successful Lea & Perrins sauce. We knew nutting. Luckily David Nash of Cultural Services in Worcester has un-earthed details of even more rivals who challenged Lea & Perrins decades ago. We have "Worcester City museum collection" to thank for these.

    Holbrooks Worcestershire Sauce Label The Proprieters of Holbrooks Worcestershire Sauce beg your acceptance of the sample bottle sent herewith, and for which they ask the favour of a trial against Messrs Lea & Perrins brand. In quality and flavour Holbrooks is equal, if not superior to any other make of Worcestershire sauce, and has the distinction of having the largest sale of any Sauce in the world. Duplicates of the sample bottle are sold by grocers at 6d (2.5p). They are nearly twice as large as a small bottle of Lea & Perrins, which are sold at from 10d to a 1/- (5p). We think the comparison worthy of consideration, as by buying Holbrooks you will get equal, if not better quality for half the price, and at the same time, nearly double the quantity.

    No fancy labelling here but an immediate cut to the chase with free samples and a price war. Some things never change, though it was clearly to no avail. Sedge Warbler

    Flying the flags of the UK, France, Russia and a possible Belgium, for their claim to be unbeatable. The Sauce Works, Angel St, Worcester

    Relying on the exotic attractions of the orient to boost its spicy creden-tials, whilst the bottle shown looks identical to a Lea & Perrins one. Waldron and Co, Worcester.

    A blatant take on the Lea & Perrins label, and outsiders too. Strettons & Co, Worcester and Birmingham. Claiming their originality as well.
