Jubilee Plans

The revised recommendations of the Jubilee committee, which were ratified at the meeting of the Urban Council, included arrangements for the dance on Monday, May 6th, Tea for the unemployed on Tuesday, May 7, a variety entertainment on Wednesday, May 8, and a treat for the old folk on Saturday, May 11.

All these functions will be held in the large Hall. There will also be children’s teas for all children attending school up to the Easter recess; facilities for free travel for the old fall from Conanby who wish to attend the treat, through the generosity of Mexborough and Swinton traction Company.

The tea for the unemployed will be for wives as well as single women who are unemployed.

There will be gifts of Jubilee mugs to all children attending school up to Easter recess, sports and games band performances, firework displays and bonfires on the crags, and special shop window displays by the local tradesmen.

A public subscription list has been opened to provide boots from necessitous children.

Children from the Conisborough and Denaby districts who are attending the Mexborough Secondary school will attend for their teas at the elementary school which they previously attended and if they did not attend an elementary school in the district they will go to the school nearest to which they live.

The children at the Godfrey Walker Convalescent Home will also be included in the treats.
