The Rector, Rev Hugh Hoibeeh is the president, and he has kindly placed his private grounds at the disposal of the club.

BESIGNATION of THE RECTOR.— On Sunday morning before the commencement of service, Rev Hugh Holbech announced from the pulpit the great regret at having to sever his connection with the parish in which he had laboured for ten years in order that he might accept a call that had come to him to the living of Farnborough in Warwick- shire, where his father had laboured for 50 years, but was unable to cirt-Y oil owing to illness. Mr Holbech feelingly testified to his regret at making the announcement, but thought it a matter of filial duty to accept the call which had come to him. Archdeacou Thomas who subsequently preached on behalf of the Diocesan Societies, made allusion to the resignation of the Rector and testified to the esteem in which he was held by his brother clergy in the diocese, and trusted he would be blessed in his new sphere of work. The announcement came as a surprise to most of the Rector's hearers ar.d general regret is felt in the parish at his removal. The restoration of the Church will always remain as a memorial of his rectorship. Mr Holbech leaves towards the end of September. 1-1
