ASHTON HAYES. CHURCH ADDITIONS.—The recent additions to the church of St. John the Evangelist, Ashton Hayes, were dedicated by the Rev. A. Gore, D.D., Canon of Chester, at a very well- attended and hearty service on Tuesday. The chief additions consist of a new organ chamber, and the formation of a baptistry in the lower storey of the steeple, with the provision of a reredos and stalls for the choir in the chancel. The architectural alterations were made under the direction of Messrs. Douglas and Minshull, of Chester, and the decoration of the church throughout has been very effectively done by Mr. Gilbert Gamon, decora- tive artist, of London. The Canon alluded in his sermon on the occasion to the effort which had been made to render the church more worthy of the worship for which it was intended, with most happy results. The large attendance of parishioners at the service shewed an appre- ciation of the improvements in the church, which was very gratifying to the Yicar (the Rev. A. Heygate) and his committee, who undertook tíj responsibility of the work. The h ds.«.. this oarfe af thi. j handsome appearance v. church has been contributed to in no small measure by the kindness of Mrs. J. Charlton Parr, who is the donor of an elegant oak reredos and holy table with altar cloth. The ladies of the parish united in providing an excellent free tea to the parishioners, and on Tuesday about 200 availed themselves of this liberality. The table-holders included Mrs. Heygate and Mrs. Turner, Mrs. F. Hayes, Mrs. and Miss Gamon, Mrs. Jefferson and Mrs. W. O. Wade, Mrs. Bridge, Mrs. H. Wade, Miss Waring, Miss Reece, Mrs. Dutton, Mrs. E. T. R I)ndA, MrQ. Lewis (Longley) and Mrs. R. Lewis, Mrs. E. Alvey, Miss Rutter, Miss E. Shallcross, Mrs. J. Greenway and Mrs. Stretch, Mrs. Gleave and Mrs. Mountield. Mrs. T. Shall- oross, Mrs. E. Owen, and Mrs. J. T. Rimmeralso gave valuable help in cutting up and arranging the food. Among the visitors were Mrs. J. Charlton Parr, Mr. Roger Charlton Parr, Mr. F. Hayes, the Rev. T. J. and Mrs. Evans (Tarvin), and the Rev. B. N. Atkinson (Kelsall). The collections at the services amounted to nearly S19, and it is satisfactory to add that practi- cally the whole expense of the improvements is now subscribed. The children of the parish, to the number of upwards of 120, had tea in the school next day, and in the evening were kindly entertained by the Rev. B. N. Atkinson, who shewed a capital selection of magic lantern views.
