For some years past the state of the floor in the big room has been indescribably bad. As the trustees are - of course in their corporate capacity only - on the verge of insolvency, to employ a builder to put down a new floor was out of the question. The Vicar, however, being very anxious to see the floor renewed this winter, offered to advance the money for materials if a few voluntary workers would undertake to lay the floor. The response was spontaneous and prompt, and the room in question is once more provided with as good a floor as one could wish to have. The gentlemen who have laid the parish under an obligation are Messrs. J. Barnard (foreman), A. Evans, H. Kelland, J. E. Knight, and W. Stanford.  The cost of the timber has been about £5, which we hope may soon be defrayed by a parochial dance.
