Mexborough and Swinton Times, February 28.
The usual fortnightly meeting of the Church of England temperance society was held on Tuesday last, and although there were several other Shrovetide attraction, the room was well filled.
In the unavoidable absence of the vicar, Mr S. Whittuck presided over the meeting.
The Band of Hope children were again to the fore with some very interesting and instructive recitations and dialogue which caused much amusement amongst the assembly.
Mr Whittuck gave in a very efficient manner two good recitations, one from Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice, the other Christ Chase.
Mr Barwood gave two readings, Mrs G Harrison, a sacred song, “Leaning on thee.” “The Slave Chase” song by Henry Russell, and a reading “Tom Jones and the public.”
The meeting throughout was a success
