The annual meeting of the Dowlais and Pen- vdajren Nursing Association was hold on Tues- day evenincr, at the Wimborne Hall, Mr. J. Evans, deputy manager, Dowlais Works, pre- sident of the Association, occupying the chair. There was an excellent attendance, which tes- tified to the increasing popularity of the work which the committee are endeavouring to per- form in the district. The President briefly reviewed the work of the last twelve months, and drew the spociai attention of all to the decreased income dur- ing 1S09. This compelled the committee to make inroads upon the reserve fund, which was formed with the object of founding a Nurses' Home and engaging an additional nurse. The report. for 1909 was read by the secretary (Mr. W. T. Davies). This showed that the num- ber of cases attended by the nurses was 300, and visits paid 5,896.-The Rev. LI. M. Wil- liams, R.D., Rector of Dowlais, and chairman of the executive committee, who has done ex- cellent work for the Association, moved the adoption of the report, which was seconded by Mr. Thomas Jenkins, miners' deputy agent. Great praise, it was said, was due to the nurses. Miss Caisley and Miss Patrick, for the efficient way they have carried out their duties since their advent to the town, and from reports rc ceivod from various quarters their services are universally appreciated, and have been of the greatest assistance. — They were accorded a hearty vote of thanks. Mr. J. Evans was unanimously re-appointed president, and Mr. T. R. Nicholas, Lloyds Bank, treasurer, and Mr. W. T. Davies, 7, Graig-terrace, secretary, were re-elected. The committee also re-appointed Mr. C. Fenwick and Mr. Isaac Edwards auditors, and thanked them for their services in the past. Special mention should be made of the ex- cellent work done by the ladies' committoc of the Association, of which Mrs. Cresswell, Kill- side, is president, and Miss Cresswell and Miss Austin, joint secretaries. The house-to-house collection and visiting are undertaken by the members, and this work has been earnestly per- formed, and the financial position of the Asso- ciation is entirely dependent upon their efforts. The committee thanked the Mayoress (Mrs. F. T. James) for her presence at the meet- ing, and also for the effort she had made last year in increasing the funds of the Association to the extent of £2(1. Tho mooting was brought to a close with votes of thanks to the president and other officers of the committee. Merthyr Express" Diary.
