The well on the Meend by the Old Schools had long been in a very dilapidated state, and an effort has been made by Messrs. George Kear and William Robbins to put it in a more satisfactory condition. The neighbours living round, knowing the value of the water entered at once into the plan, and Messrs. Kear and Robbins, who kindly undertook the work of collecting, met with such a steady response to their appeal that the well has once again been put in good order, and proves a boon to the neighbourhood. The following are the subscribers :-
