Presentation to Mr Jesse Manley, Aberdare. At Kirkcaldy on Saturday week, Mr Jesse Manley, conductor of the Kirk- en Idy Trades Band until he came to Aberdare a few weeks ago, was pre- sented with a gold watch and Mrs. Man- ley with a gold brooch. The presenta- tion was made by the Rev. Wm. Milne, president of the Trades Band. Mr. Manley, in acknowledging the gifts, "aid he was glad to see so many of the members present, including several of the older players. He could assure them that he felt deeply grateful to them for the very nice presents they had given him, not for their intrinsic value so much as for the kind motive that prompted the giving of them. (Applause.) When he wanted to know the time he would always feel in look- ing at the watch he was consulting his Kirkcaldy friends. He would always remember Kirkcaldy, and ho trusted they would see each other often. (Ap- plause.) He had not been long enough in Kirkcaldy to share the fruits of his labours there, but he hoped whoever fol- lowed him would receive some assist- ance from the work he had begun. His connection with the band had always been one of hard work, but he thought 1k> had only done his duty. He also thanked them \ery kindly for their kind expressions and gift to Mrs. Man- ley-—The President and Mr. Sinclair, sub-conductor, spoke very highly of Mr Manlev's services, and expressed their profound regret at his departure for Aberdare. Mr. Sinclair remarked that they all knew the honours which Mr. Manley had already secured in Aber- dare, and he wished him a successful future with his new Band. (Applause.) —Pipe-Major Wallace, of the Forth Works Band, also spoke in appreciation ol Mr. Manlev's work. The Cynon Valley Band. The committee of the above Band. whose headquarters are at the old I.L.P. Institute, Cardiff Street, Aber- dare, are issuing an appeal for funds. and hope to get the support of the townspeople. They state that the Aberdare Town Band, after a useful and honourable career extending over 20 years, was wound up owing to ndverse circumstances last year. The commit- ter further state that the Hand is now re-established under the name of the Cynon Valley Band, with Mr. Jesse Manley as teacher and conductor. The cost of equipping the Band with instru- ments, etc., will be about £ 4o0. It is hoped that the public will readily re- spond to this appeal and help the Band to regain its former proficiency and use- fulness.
