The Vicar alluded to the fact that it was the fourth annual tea held since he came to the parish and spoke feelingly of the loss the parish had sus- tained by the death of the late Councillor Henry W31son. The proceeds of the tea, were to be given, he said, towards the funds of the Church House. There still remained a debt of C500 on the Church House, which was a great handicap to the work in the district, and he hoped that ere long it would be found possible to free the building, which was a most valuable aid to Church work, from debt. The following programme wa,s then given, the frequent encores testifying to the appreciation of the, audience: — Pianoforte duet, "Galop des Satyrs," Miss L. Winter and Mr L. H. Summerfield; song, "I know a lovely garden," Miss Sylvia Blakey; songs, "Still as the Night" and "Sincerity" (encored), Mr G.
