SALE OF WORK AT PEN- MAENMAWR. FIRST DAY'S PROCEEDINGS. An interesting annual event at Penmaenmawr which is looked forward to by parishioners and visitors alike, is the sale of work held in the beautiful grounds of the Vicarage. The pro- ceeds are usually devoted towards church work in its various forms. This year's proceedings were opened yester- day, and will be continued to-day (Thursday), the funds on the present occasion being needed for the following objects:—Completion of iru- provements in the chancel of St. Seiriol's Qhuroh, £130 j other improvements in same, £ 15 painting and repairing the three churches (estimated cost), £ 60; total, £205, Of this sum EbO is in hand, leaving an adverse balance of B145. A contribution had also been promised to the Dicoesan Church Extension Society. FIRST DAY'S OPENING. The weather yesterday was rather dull, but there was a large attendance. At the outset, the Vicar regretted that Mrs Gee, Caer Hun Hall, who had promised to per- form the opening ceremony, was unfortunately, unable to be present. He had, however, en- listed the services of a lady who was well- known to them to fill the vacancy. He re- ferred to Mrs Royds, Bryn Goleu, whose action under the circumstances was a very kind one. Mrs Royds, in a very pretty little speech, then declared the bazaar open. The National Anthem was then played on the gramaphone. A glance round showed that the arrange- ments had been carried out on a lavish scale. In a. large marquee, tastily displayed on a num- ber of stalls, fancy and useful articles were offered, the range being sufficient to meet that taste of even the most fastidious. In addition there were a number of interesting competitions including croquet, shooting, nail-driving, and washing, the two latter, along with the art gallery, causing much amusement. Durmg the afternoon a programme of gramo- phone selections was given on a beautiful in- strument kindly loaned by the Misses Morrish, whilst in the evening Mr Farrar's instrument gave forth sweet sounds. Tea was served on the terrace of the Vicarage. Amongst those present were Canon and Mrs Royds, Mrs Guest Sefton, Rev. C. F. Roberts, vicar of Conway; Miss Sergeant, Conway; Mr and Mrs Barnes, Mrs Picton, Caerlyr; Mrs Hor- ton, Erw Lydan; Mrs Griffiths, Blaen-y-Mor; Miss Newton, Llwyn Heulog; Mrs Wood, Bod- londeb; Mrs Morrish, Mrs Darbishire, Plaa Mawr; Miss Darbishire, Plas Celyn; Mr and Mra Evill, Llanfairfechan; Mrs Norwich, Moel Lira.
