The Choral Festival at Coleford, on June 30, was a highly successful and enjoyable service, the musical portion being well rendered by a large body of voices from Berry Hill, Bream, Clearwell, Coleford, Newland-with-Redbrook, and Lydbrook choirs. The Rev. A. N. Scott was conductor, and the Rev. W.G. Baillie, Vicar of Newnham, preached an appropriate sermon.
