CONCERT – On Wednesday evening a most enjoyable tea and entertainment were held in the Friends’ Mission Room, Badsey, in aid of the Belgian and other victims of the present war. After tea the commodious hall was crowded in every part, the chair being taken punctually at 7 o’clock by Mr W Brady, when a capital programme was gone through. Where all were so excellent, it is perhaps invidious to particularise, but the singing of Miss L Hornsby, Miss Henderson, Mrs Saunders, Mr. Ward, and Mr. B. Brady was approved by repeated recalls. One capital feature of the evening was a dramatic sketch “Our at ‘ome day,” very ably acted by Misses Geden and Miss Marjorie Brady. Later in the programme a laughable sketch entitled “Sam Slitherrick’s Baby” was rendered by friends from Littleton, and was evidently much enjoyed by the crowded audience. It is gratifying to know that financial result was eminently satisfactory.
