Some sad news yesterday – whilst filming the new Hollywood Christmas blockbuster “Christmas Capers at St T”, Big Tim F seriously injured himself whilst filming a dangerous, but well-rehearsed stunt. Movie star and (now occasional) Code Club volunteer, Big Tim F, coming straight from his blockbuster success with the award-winning movie, Dig-i-Spy, had spent weeks practising his walk onto the rubberised play surface but unfortunately appears to have misjudged the precarious timings required for this dangerous stunt, tripped on the surface join and landed badly, breaking his clavicle bone.

Film Producer and Musical Director, Jackie S, said, “He always insists on performing his own stunts, but this time he was just not up to the task. He will have to face up to the fact that he’s no Spring Chicken and so next year we will be employing a stunt double. Justin D has already offered his services and we look forward to working with him. However he will need to start practising his walking techniques immediately”
Chaos ensued at Merton Park Code Club as unsupervised children just couldn’t cope without him. Our intrepid reporter took her life in her hands to film from the scene:
