Transcription of article


Two Entertainments, which had been arranged by Mrs. Savory, were given in the Old School, on April 17th, and were in every respect an unqualified success. They involved an enormous amount of trouble, and we are under a great debt of gratitude to her. Our best thanks are also due to those ladies and gentlemen who took part in the programme, and to the kind friends who helped to put the stage up and get the room ready. Tea was provided in the afternoon which helped to swell the funds, and we thank those who so kindly gave all the provisions etc. The proceeds amounted to £11 6s. 0d. Out of this £3 15s. 0d. was given to the Aldington Band to pay the balance due for their new instruments and, 8s. for new music; £2 2s. 6d. was paid over to the Churchwardens, to meet certain sums which have become due from the Church funds since the Vestry meeting, and the balance remains in hand for other needs in connection with the Church at Badsey.
