SWANSEA WELSH CHURCH I BAZAAR. ¡ ENCOURAGEMENT FOR A BANT) Ox ZEALOUS WORKERS. LADY LLEWELYN ATTENDS AND PATRONISES ALL STALLS. Our lady reporter, Cora," writes :—In spiU: of the unpropitious weather conditions which prevailed on Thursday afternoon quite a. large number of Swansea folk patronised the bazaar held in connection with the St. Matthew's and St. George's Parish. Churches, i in the Parish Hall of the former, in Swan- street. A vast improvement in comparison with last year is t.o be noticed in the hall's interior this year, and it is gratifying to lean that the renovations have been carried ou^ with the receipts of la^t year's effort. The energy and Keal with which the wor- kers of both parishes worked for the pre- sent function was conspicuous in the hun- drede of dainty and useful articles offered for sale at the various stalls, and altogether the room presented a bright and interesting spectacle, brilliant in decoration and colours, and alive with the sociability and the wel- come extended by all present. The object waa to benefit the Parochial and Improve- ment Fund. At half-past four Lady Llewelyn arrived for the opening ceremony, accompanied by he- daughter, Miss LleweJyn. Her ladyship was beautifully attired in a gown of black brocaded silk with vest of white and gold embroidery, and handsome blark velvet coat applique black silk. Her hat, also of black, was trimmed with black ribbon and rich creamy-tinted lace, and she also wore a lovely sable pelerine. Miss Llewelyn was gowned in mole-coloured velvet under a bi&ck coat. The mole-coloured velvet hat was trimmod with blue tea-ttaers, and a. sable pelerine was also worn. Pioceedings opened with a hymn and prayer; tiien the vicar, the Rev. T. L. Richard, in a few words referred to the presa-nt effort as the twelfth annuaJ bazaar that bad been held. Without bazaars, he said, tney could not carry on their parochial organisations and could do nothing to im- prove their buildings in connection with the cLurch. Thev always tried to devote the money to the very best use, and he pointed with pride to the room in which the bazaar was held, which was vastly improved in ap- peal ance through last year's effort. How- ever, they were not satisfied, because their Sunday School was improving rapidly, a.nd they would soon have to provide improved accommodation. They felt very grateful for the help and encouragement given them by the west end part of the town, and beTmder- stood that the old part of Swansea, or old St. John's, was held sacred in the hearts of many old residents. He had extreme plea- sure in calling upon Lady Llewelyn. to per- form the opening ceremony. Lady Llewelyn in a charming and gra- cious speech, spoke of the great pleasure it gave to her to be able to come amongst them. She was always very willing to do what she could for charitable works. She wa^ especially pleaded to hear of the excel- lent work of the Sunday School. Sunday Sclools she regarded as the nurse of the Church and a most valuable adjunct. She regretted Sir John had not come with her, bat he was engaged at the annual meeting of the Savings' Bank, but in the meantime she had brought her daughter and together they hoped to visit all the stalls and see the many beautiful things offered for sale, ishe v/ished the bazaar every success. Mr. Walters (churchwarden) proposed a vote of thanks, remarking that it was the first time they had bad such a function opened by Lady Llewelyn and they felt very proud of the honour. Mr. James (churchwarden of St. George's) seconded, and the vote was carried with great enthusiasm. The stallholders were Mrs. T. G. and Misf Richard, Mrs. W. Grey Walters, Miss Evans (Brooklands), Mrs. Hinds, Mrs. G. E. ■ Davies, Miss Annie Edwards, 'Miss Tilly Morgan, Mrs. John James, Mts- Harris, Mi-t. Reynish, Mrs. Price, Miss Thomas.. Mrs Reynolds, Miss Spraggon, Miss Rey- nish and Mr. John James. Bran-tub Miss M. J. Reynish, Miss James and Miss E. Reynish. Fish-pond: Miss Hetty Jones. Refreshments: Mrs. Edwards, Mrs. Davies and Mrs. Rees. The receipts, though not yielding so large an aggregate as last year, were substantial in view of the unfavourable weather, and totalled over £60, compared with £72 last
