There was a very pleasant gathering in the Old School on February 7th, when a handsome marble clock was presented to Mr. W. Mustoe. It bore the following inscription, "Presented to Mr. W. Mustoe in recognition of his services as clerk and hon. organist in the parishes of Badsey and Wickhamford from 1892-1898." The work of collecting the funds was undertaken by Mrs. Sladden, Mrs. Wood, Mrs. Warner, Miss Savory, Miss M. Jones, Miss E. Jones,and Mr. John Mason (Wickhamford).

The two entertainments which have taken place during the past month on behalf of the Bell Fund were in every way most successful. For the entertainment  on February 3rd (held in Mr. Sladden's barn by his kind permission) all the provisions for the supper were most kindly and generously given by parishioners and others, which added £3 5s. 4d. to the funds. All the arrangements were ably carried out by Mrs. and Miss Savory, Mrs. H. Keen, Mrs. Warner, Miss Bell, Miss Horsman, Miss M. Jones, Miss L. Knight, Mrs. Sparrow. Mr. H. Keen, Mr. W. Keen, Mr. J. Agg, to all of whom we are greatly indebted for all the trouble they took. Mr. G. Bell was a good M. C. The entertainment in the Old School on February 17th produced the sum of £7 for the Bell Fund.
