HOLLY BUSH. The district' of Holly Bush was by Order in Council dated June 24, 1912, constituted a Consolidated Chapelry with an endowment of B156 per annum, which by April 2nd, 1913, became augmented up to £ 202. The difficulties in bringing the scheme to a successful conclusion were all the greater inasmuch as the dioceses of Worcester and Hereford were both concerned. One of the interested Hereford incumbents said they were like swimmer*, who after having surmounted one wave, always found another in front, but at last the billows ceased to roll, so they came into the haven where they would be. Not satisfied with this achievement, which had taken four. y$ars to accomplish, tap appeal was issued in Jihte, 1913, for a parish room, S65 having by that time been obtained for the purpose, the need for such a building being all the greater, owing to the absence of a day school. The hall, which consists of a main room 35ft) by 20ft, with a side ropm 12ft by 12ft, will be opened on May 23, at 3 p.m., by Miss Yeatman Biggs. Many people might be glad to avail themselves of this opportunity of visiting Holly Bush, as it is a historical neighbourhood. Mr Symonds wrote his books 44 Malvern Chase," and 44 Hanley Castle," in the old Jacobean Manor House opposite the new institute. The legend of the Raggedsfcone mentioned in these works, owes its origin to the adjoining hill. Popular superstition has it that the shadow of the Raggedstone fell on Cardinal Wolsey, a few days before he ceased to put his trust in princes, as he sat on the lawn at Birts Morton Court. Holly Bush was not built for a parish church, and is far too cramped. The addition of a chancel, with the extension of the little vestry, would render the chutch worthy of its new dignity, so that the people might come to reverence that house of God as their Parish Church. There is an amount of £26168 Id to the credit of the "Nolly Bush Chancel and Vestry Fund," at the Capital and Counties Bank, Ledbury.
