Vale of Conway Monthly Meeting.âOn Wednesday afternoon, the monthly meeting of the Vale of Conway Calvinistic Methodists, was held at Eglwysbach, under the presidency of the Rev Evan Hughes, Talybont. The business transacted was chiefly of a routine character. With regard to the Centenary Fund, the Rev Evan Davies, of Trefriw, reported that nearly £ 12,000 had been promised in subscriptions. It was decided to appoint a committee to arrange for collections towards the fund to be made in the district of the monthly meeting, which extended from Llysfaen to Penmachno.
