Primitive Methodist Sabbath School Excursion

On Thursday, August 23, the children and teachers of the love school, accompanied by a few friends, went for a days excursion to Roche Abbey. Mr Thomas booth, of the Conisbrough Mills, and Mr Thomas Shutt, of the Red Lion Hotel, kindly conveyed the party in two wagons, and a very enjoyable day was spent.

The entire route was enlivened by the singing of the Sabbath School airs, and other lively hymns.

The children were regaled with tea and buns, and did ample justice to the good things provided.

The party left the Abbey about seven o’clock, and arrived home about nine, much delighted with their days out.
