The School meets again on Monday, September 18th.

On Thursday, August 29, the members of this Club held their Anniversary. The Club seems to keep up its numbers, and to have a good balance in its bank; the cash in the Post Office Savings Bank being £347 7s. l0d. This being so, it was a pity so few, comparatively, meet together for service and tea on the club day. It could hardly have been because members were so busy; we only wish work were so plentiful as to prevent men giving up one afternoon. A little more interest should be shown in the proceedings of the club, and a pride taken in making a good show on the way down to church. The Vicar preached at the service from 2 Peter 1. 6, 7, on some of the poor man’s friends. A comfortable tea enjoyed afterwards by the members present.

Our show has transplanted itself; and, like many of the vegetables and flowers which belong to it, has not suffered from change of soil. We have much to say for the old meadow we do not wish to underrate it, nor to forget the many nice shows held in it; but we have, perhaps, more to say for the new field, and we must hope that many shows may take place in it, as successful as this year’s, and that is saying a great deal, considering the dry season. So if our friends and patrons came on Saturday, August 5, to look for Bream Flower Show at Collier’s Beech, they would have thought the advertisements were all a hoax; but the disappointment would not have lasted long. What was not to be found at Collier’s Beech, ought be seen as large as life, with its large tents and visitors, on the Sun Tump. And, first, an expression of thanks due to Mr. Thomas Morse, of the Rising Sun, for his kindness in placing this meadow at the disposal of the committee, and for the and tables, and assistance rendered in other ways. The meadow clearly recommended itself for the lovely view to be obtained from the rising ground on which it stands, and from the central position it holds within the village. There were, on the whole, fewer lots of vegetables very good assortment of different kinds. The designs were displayed great taste and care. A choice and useful collection of prizes occupied a small tent by itself; amongst these were gifts from Lady Campbell, Mrs. Addison, Mrs. Smith, of the Talbot, Gloucester, Mrs Trotter, of Coleford; Mr. T. Ames, Mr. Williams, and others.
The weather was fine and clear. A new prize was given by Supt. Chipp to encourage cottage gardening, and consisted of £1 1s., to be divided amongst the owners of the three best kept gardens, which proved to be lst, John Hawkins.; 2nd, Frank Lucas; 3rd, John Barber. A 4th prize was added for William Miles, and William Worgan. was highly recommended. Mr. Smith, of Lydney Park, and Mr. Reece, of Coleford, were the judges.
