LLANSANTFFRAID. BAZAAR.—A most successful Bazaar was held in the Village Hall on Tuesday, in aid of the Congregational Chapel enlargement funds.

The opening ceremony took place at 2 o'clock, when amongst those present were-Mr and Miss Edith Perrott (Bronhyddon), Miss Sheraton (Penymaes), Mrs and Mrs Roe (Pontypentre), Misses Phillips (Hendreboith), Mr and Misses Kempster, Mr E.

Rev R. G. Williams announced that Mrs Perrott, Bronhyddon, who had promised to come and open the Bazaar was unfortnnately suffering from illness and could not attend. Miss Perrott had, however, very kindly come forward to take her mother's place (cheers). Mr Perrot said he had come there to express his mother's regret at not being able to perform the duty she had promised to undertake. If a doctor's advice was worth having it was worth following, and it was only in obedience to her doctor that she was not present- It was a keen disappointment to her, and she had asked him to come down and express her sorrow at her enforced absence. He had no doubt they had all come with their pockets full, and the sooner they lightened them the better. Rev R. G. Williame then called upon Miss Mary Perrott to declare the sale open, which she did amidst cheers, wishing them "every success. A hearty vote of thanks was accorded Miss Perrott for her services, on the motion of Rev R. G. Williams, seconded by Mr D. Pryce Jones. The following were the stall holders :—Bachelor's stall, Mr. D.
