.Dowlais and Penydarren Nursing…


Dowlais and Penydarren Nursing Association. The annual meeting of the Dowlais and Pen- ydarren Nursing Association (which is affiliat- ed witb the Queen Victoria Jubilee Nursing In- stitute) was held on Friday evening at the Wimborne Hall, Garden-street, under the presi- dencv of the Rev. LI. M. Williams, R.D. (Rcc- tor of Dowlais), and there was a good attend- anc«.—The Chairman submitted the first an- nual report to the meeting, and said the As- sociation had cause to be proud of the results of the first year's work. Two highly-qualified nurses were sent down from headquarters, and commenced their duties on July 23rd, 1908. From that date to the end of the year, they attended to 110 cases, making a total of 2,056 visits. It was very pleasing for the committee to know that the nurses' services are very great- ly appreciated, and the public financial response was very gratifying.—The chief business of the evening was the election of a chairman in suc- cession to Mr. H. Stuart MaTtin. the vacancy created by the departure of that gentleman in August last having been temporarily filled by the Rector; and Mr. John Evans, Gwernllwyn Uchaf (deputy works manager), was unanimous- ly appointed.—References were made to the ex- cellent services rendered by Mr. Martin in forming the Association, and in his capacity as I chairjnan.—Appreciative speeches were also rfiade by Councillor Wm. Lswis (Penydarren), Mr. C. H. Fenwick (cashier), and Mrs. Cress- well, Hillside (the president of the Ladies' Com- mittee).—Other vacancies on the general com- mittee were then filled, and after passing a vote of thanks to the chairman for the evening, the secretaries of the Ladies' Committee (Miss Cresswell, Hillside and Miss Austin. Usk Villa), the treaurer (Mr. T. R. Nicholas. Lloyds Bank), and the secretary (Mr. W. T. Davies, Dowlais Office?), a. very successful meeting was brought to a clos?. A vote of conrlo'ence was passed with the relatives of the late Rev. Father Wray (the first president of the Association), to whose untiring labours in its inaugural stages the movement is under a la-t.inrr indebtedness. —Apologies regretting their inability, owintr to other engagaments, to be orese.nt at the meet ing were received from Dr. Stuart C. C^e«s- we.ll. Dr. H. L. Hucrhes. and also from Aid. D. W. Jones, who rendered valuable assistance in helping to secure funds for the Association.—It ¡, the intention of the Association in the ne-ar future to make their annual collections, when it is to be hoped the townspeople of Dowlais and Penydarren will respond in the same heartv manner they did last year. Additional fund? are necessary, and as the Association means to add to the mirsing staff, increased subscriotions will be welcomed. "LINSTTI COMTOTTXD' for Coughs and Colds. Of 1 proven efficacy.
