SOAR WELSH WESLEYAN CHAPEL, RHYL. Yesterday (Thursday) was an important day for the friends connected with the above place of worship, a tea meeting and concert in aid of the chapel building fund having been arranged for that date. The proceedings took place in the Town Hall, and the arrangements for the same were ably carried out by a hard-working committee, of which Councillor John Hughes was chairman, with Mr John Jones, Aquarium Street, as treasurer, and Mr Thomas Roberts, Foryd Junction, secretary. A large company sat down to tea in the spacious assembly room, which was effectively decorated with bunting, &c., under the superintendence of Mr John Brooks (Glanaber). The ladies respon- sible for the tea were as follows: Mrs Williams, Marsh Road Miss Roberts, 2 Rosehill Terrace Miss Williams, 116 Vale Road; Miss Williams. 14 West Parade Mrs Humphreys, Bruoswick Villa Mrs Griffiths, Free Trade Hall Mrs Davies, 2 Derwen Terrace Miss Jones, Crescent Road Mrs Denton Davies, Albert Street; Mrs Williams, 34 High Street; Mrs Garner, John Street and Miss Hughes, Elwy House. There was also an efficient staff of assistants, including Miss Hughes, Bodhyfryd; Mn Owen, Sisson Street; Miss Roberta, Bath Street; Miss Hughes, River Street Miss Jones, Princes Street; Miss Jones, Millbank Inn Miss Humphreys, Brunswick Villa; the Misses Williams (3), 34 High Street; Miss Hughes and Miss Jones, Free Trade Hall; Misses Davies, Derwen Terrace Miss Roberts, 51 West Parade Miss Jones, Crescent Road Miss H Roberts, 49 High Street; Miss Jones, Dyserth; Miss Jones, Abbey Street and Miss Roberts, Foryd Junction and valuable help in the kitchen was rendered by Mrs Davies, Pontygwtter Mrs Hughes, Alpha Villa Mrs Edwards, Sisson St Mrs Jones, Aquarium Street; Mrs Roberts, Foryd Junction; Mrs Hughes, Dyserth Miss Owen, 58 Vale Rd and Mra Crossley. Altogether the tea proved a very enjoyable function, the neatness of the arrangements being freely commented upon by those partaking of the "friendly cup." I Subsequently the tables were cleared, and at seven p.m. an interesting musical programme was proceeded with. The audience was a very appre- ciative one, though a better attendance could have been wished for, the only moderate assembly being due no doubt to the threatening appearance of the sky and the falling of heavy drops of rain at the hour announced for the commencement. Alderman W Elwy Williams, who presided, and was supported by the Revs E Humphreys (pastor) and Robert Curry, said he felt very highly honoured by having been asked to take the chair on such an interesting occasion. Still he was glad to be present and to help in any way the little religious cause represented there that evening. The work in which the friends of the Soar Welsh Wesleyan Chapel were engaged was a worthy one, and well deserving of every support from all Christian people ot the town, who when they know the needs of their fellow Christians would, he felt sure, readily give them a helping hand (applause). —The programme was then proceeded with, the artistes who had promised assistance being as follows:— the Miases S E Jones, Lillie Evans, C Owen, Popplewell, Edwards, L Hughes, E Jones, and Parker Davies, and Messrs W R Williams,. R Jones, J E Proffitt, and T Caledfryn Jones (all of Rhyl), Miss M E Jones, and Miss A Jones (Dyserth), and the Dyserth Male Voice Prize Choir under the conductorship of Mr J Evans. Miss Thomas, of St Asaph, played the accompaniments.
