 Prevention of Cruelty to Children

The garden meeting held on Friday afternoon in the grounds of the terrace was of a most instructive character, and one learned much of the important work which the Royal Society for The Prevention of Cruelty to Children is doing in the land.

Unfortunately neither Mr R. H. Sharp nor Mrs Sharp was able to attend, being prevented by indisposition, which is, I hope, of only a temporary character. Mr H. J. Sharp welcomed those present, and presented Mr Summers, from the Central offices to the meeting. The gentleman delivered a very interesting address on the good work which has already been accomplished by the society, whose efforts are limited by the nature of the funds. More inspectors are urgently needed. The vicar also spoke in a sympathetic vein of the society’s work. A local committee was formed for Conisborough.

Annual Tea of Mission Church at Clifton

The annual tea in connection with the Mission Church at Clifton took place on Monday afternoon, when a good number of the members of the congregation and friends from Conisborough and the surrounding district were present, and thoroughly enjoyed the good things provided. A cricket match and other games were indulged in after tea, and the shades of the evening fell all too soon. The weather was very fine, and the whole affair passed successfully.

The new curate the ref C. P. Miller, preached in the Parish Church on Sunday evening to a large congregation.
