LLANEGRYN. Her Majesty the Queen's jubilee was celebrated in Llanegryn, on the 21st inst, by a general tea-drinking, in which nearly the whole parish, together with many friends, took part, and enjoyed themselves in a manner befitting so momentous an occasion. At 2.30 the children of the parish, numbering about 250,assembled in the schoolroom, after which they were formed into a procession, preparatory to marching to the park field, kindly lent by Mr Phillips, where the festivity was to be held, the whole line of march being enlivened by a display of banners, bearing appropriate mottoes, and the singing of songs by the children, making the whole valley re-echo with their tuneful voices. On arriving at the field, a suitable address was delivered by the vicar, the Rev D. Hughes, after which a substantial repast of tea and different kinds of cake was partaken of, between 700 and 800 sitting down to tea. This was followed by the usual field sports, into which both young and old entered with equal zest and enjoyment. Later on in the evening buns and sweets were distributed among the children The National Anthem was then very effectively sung by all, under the conductorship of Mr Smith. A dance brought the day's enjoyment to a olese. The greatest thanks and credit are due to the promoters and directors of the scheme-Mr and Mrs Phillips, Mrs and Miss Hammons,of Glanmachlas Farm,and Mr John Smith, headmaster of the Llanegryn school, also to those ladies and gentlemen who so kindly gave their valuable assistance on the day, for the able manner in which they performed their several daties.
