MIDDLETOWN. GRAND PICNIC.-This pretty little village which nestles at the foot of Moel-y-Golfa, and which is close to Rodney's Pillar, was all alive on Thursday, on the occasion of the popular picnic. The morn- ing was rather showery, but later the rain ceased and did not interfere with the proceedings. There were upwards of 250 present, amongst whom we noticed Rev. W. F. Lightfoot Harrison, Mr and Mrs Whittingham, Mr. and Mrs. Evans, Mrs. Powell (Bank, Welshpool), and Mr. and Mrs. Holt. Dancing was kept up with much vigour to the strains of the Band of the 4th Batt. S.W.B., conducted by Mr. Owen. Refreshments, which were supplied by Mr. Brown (Coedway) were laid out in a large marquee. The arrangements were admirably carried out by an excellent committee, viz., Mr. R. Whittingham (chairman), Rev. W. F. Lightfoot Harrison, Messrs. R. Parr, H. Wilde, C. Morris, A. Wilde, W. Eddowes, W. Morris, and E. Wilde, with Mr. J. Baker as hon. sec. These gentlemen were assisted by Mrs. Whittingham, Miss Morris, Miss Eddowes, Miss Hillier, and Miss Parr. Arches were erected and decorated with flags by Messrs Whittingham, C. Morris, G. Griffiths, and E. Evans. A vote of thanks to the chairman was proposed by Mr. C. Morris and received with loud applause. The pro- ceeds are to be devoted to parochial purposes.
