Mexborough & Swinton Times – Saturday 06 August 1910
It was quite obvious that the fine weather was responsible for the exodus of a large number of people, and therefore the attendance at the Hospital Sunday service suffered considerably.
On the other hand, there was a large influx of visitors, especially on Bank Holiday Monday, the chief attraction being the Castle. Many Conisbroites journeyed to Tickhill on the occasion of the show and sports. The excursions the seaside were very well patronised.
The members of the Conisboro’ Brass Band had their annual outing on Monday to Pontefract. They were accompanied by their wives and friends. Leaving Conisboro’ at ten in the morning, a stop was made at Robin Hood’s Well and Badsworth Kennels. At Thorpe Alvey lunch was served and Pontefract was reached about two. An inspection was made of the Castle and its grounds.
A first class tea was served at the Greyhound Hotel, and the return journey begun about six o’clock, by way of Askern. Here a halt was made and the band rendered selections, as they did in most villages through which they went.
Conisboro’ was reached shortly after ten o’clock, everyone having profited by the enjoyable outing. Homing Society
