The erection of a cinema at Bolton on Dearne is contemplated

The Wombwell Urban Council have received permission to erect a few more houses.

The Wath Hospital Sunday effort was a record success, the amount realised being £158.

A fatal accident occurred this week in the Cadeby mine, the first there for 3 ½ years.

Wath Sports will be held on Monday, and Thrybergh sports in Thrybergh Park on Whit Tuesday.

Mining wages have fallen another 15% for June, with the prospect of a further reduction in July.

The Reverend P Hope, M.A., vicar of Saint Mary’s, Beverley, formerly Vicar of Mexborough, will preach at the patronal Festival services at the Mexborough Parish Church on June 25.

The time of Sunday morning service at the Wath Parish Church has been altered from 1030 to 11.

There is an acute water shortage at Thurnscoe, and the public supply completely failed yesterday. The Council are negotiating for an emergency supply from the Hickleton Main Colliery.

The Bolton on Dearne district expects £10,000 for the miners Welfare Fund, and proposes to spend it on a “Civic Centre” (presumably a Public Hall) costing £6,000, and upon recreation grounds and institutes.

Councillor and church warden Ward, of Swinton, complained that the band in the park drowns the Sunday evening sermon in church. At 200 yards range, considering the stentorian power of the Swinton vicar, this is an achievement more remarkable than creditable.
