Mexborough and Swinton Times, July 30 1897
Denaby Main Wesleyan Sunday School.
The Sunday school anniversary took place on Sunday, when sermons were preached morning and evening, by the Rev. A. Stokes, of Conisborough.
One of the main features of the anniversary was a special character of the musical arrangements. The event was announced “A day with Lavan Solomon,” the composer also being present to play his favourite instrument “the tubephone.”
The whole proceedings were rich musical treat. Mr W. Wells is to be commended for the exact way in which he had trained the children. Mr W. H. Wilson was at his best on the organ. The children gave a splendid rendition of their hymns and choruses, whilst a splendid string band and was in attendance, under the able conductorship of Mr S. Wilde.
On Monday, a splendid ham tea was provided. After tea a public meeting was held. Mr W. H. Chambers officiated as chairman. The total receipts are over £12.
Owing to the great success of the effort, the whole is to be repeated on Sunday afternoon next, when Miss Pattie Cuttle, the famous soprano, will render two solos.
