.----____n_----Annual Outing…


.n_- Annual Outing of Messrs Rhydwen Jones & Davies' Employees. The fifth annual outing of the employees of Messrs Rhydwen Jones and Davies, the well known famishing firm, of Rhyl and Llandudno, came off on Saturday, Birmingham being the place visited. The day was beautifully fme. The Llandadno contingent, in charge of Mr Walter Jones, left by the 8-10 a.m. train, the Rbyl contingent, with Mr Alfred Jones and Mr T Davies, being picked up at their own town. The whole company numbered about 60, which were aug- mented at Birmingham by the appearance of a few well-known commercial travellers. Birmingham was reached at 12-30 a.m. Dinner was served at the White Horse Hotel. Mr Alfred Jones occupied the chair, while Mr Walter Jones acted as vice. Mr Wareham in proposing the toast of The Firm," observed that he was proud to be there as a guest that day. He was proud because that he was a gaest of such an honourable and straightforward firm, who were always honest and straightforward in their dealings. He wished them every success, and they deserved all th success they could attain. Mr Perkings supported the proposal, and stated that he had known the firm for 20 years, and daring that period had always found them to be thorough bus;ness men, straight in their dealing and honourable in their transactions (hear, hear). The Chairman replied, in the p.irse of which he thanked all present for the kind master in which they had honoured the toast. He felt flattered at seeing his commercial friends taround the table, and was thankful to them for being present. As a firm their motive was to deal straight with all, and do what was just to every man. Mr T Davies also responded. He observed that it was a pleasare to him to meet them and to feel that their conduct in the past ha 1 been such as to merit their approval (hear, hear). Mr Walter Jones said he could only corroborate what had been already stated. It was certainly most gratifying to him that such eminent commercials had so much confidence in the firm. Whatevar confidence they had gained in the past, it would be their duty and their pleasure to strengthen it in the future. (cheers). The Employees" was the next toast, proposed from the chair, Mr A Jones remarking that they as a firm were always ready to listen to any grievance which any of their workmen might have, and it they found that there existed any ground for it, it would be remedied at once. Mr Denton and Mr Percy suitably responded. The Chairman pointed out that two of their em. ployees, who were present last year, had gone to the front, namely, Norman Roberts, Rhyl, who had since died, and Vernon Jones, who they trusted would reach home safe. He asked the company to drink in silence to the memory of Norman Roberts. The Commercials subsequently entertained the prin- cipals to a splendid drive to Solihull, which was enjoyed immensely.
