The Parish Tea took place according to notice, on Thursday, February 10. Tables were set out in the Girls’ and Infants’ Rooms, and accommodation was found for 80 guests or more, who enjoyed a comfortable tea and were well satisfied with the excellent provisions furnished by the committee. After tea the Boys’ Room was thrown open, and the visitors took their seats on the benches prepared for the entertainment of Readings and Songs. Flags were hung from the walls, which gave the room a gay and cheerful aspect. The seats were soon filled, and a reading from the Vicar commenced the series of pieces; these were well received, and at the close the audience seemed highly satisfied: The children’s songs conducted by Mr. Dickson, were much applauded; and great amusement was caused by two comical guessing stories, which were read by the Rev. B. F. Turner.

LENT.
Lent is a season for improvement and growth in grace. More time and thought should now be given to God. Let those, who are neglectful of prayer be diligent in praying; let those. who keep away from God’s House, or who go but seldom, become constant attendants; let those who have been confirmed and have not yet communicated, draw near to the Lord’s Table; let the Communicant be a regular Communicant let those, who have fallen off from attendance, resume their place at a Holy Feast. Above all, let sins and bad habits be put away, effort made to live a godly life. Weekly Communion and Special Weekday Services - Wednesday, Bream, 7.30; Thursday, Yorkley Wood,7; Friday, Firs, 6 will afford opportunities for those willing to use let us hope there will be many.
