Improvemen,ts.-&ring the end of this month three old established premises in Harford-square will be demolished and a fine block of new buildings for shops will be built on the site for Messrs. Walter Davies, D. Jones, watchmaker, and E. W. Richards. Tea and Concert.—On Tuesday afternoon week the members of St. John's Church, Pen- trebach, were regaled with a sumptuous tea kindly provided at Doldrement through the generosity of Miss Bankea-Price. In the evening, a concert was held at Glynhir, the spacious room adjoining, having been lent for the occasion by Mrs. Williams. Despite somewhat unfavourable weather, a large audience assembled, including several friends from Lampeter. Punctually to time the conductor, Mr. W. Lewis, C.M., Bryn-road, opened the proceedings, and during the even- ing lie kept crowded gathering in a good mood by his humouous and appropriate re- marks. Indeed, Mr. Lewis did his part ex- cellently, and his genial presence seemed to give an impetous to every item, and to in- spire the artistes with confidence. The pro- gramme. which consisted of 60 items, was creditably gone througjh. the competitions reaching a very high standard. The Pentre- bach Glee Party was in fine form, and re- flected credit upon Mr. E. Lumley, the lead- er, the Juvenile Choir (conducted by Mr. W. W. Jones) also encaptured the audience by their masterly renderings, "The Farmyard" being enthusiastically encored. The boot- black competition for young ladies elicited several contestants, and the fair maidens ex- celled themselves in this useful, yet some- what despised art. Taken altogether, the concert must be regarded as one of the best ever held at Lampeter, and those who were not present missed a veritable treat. The proceedings came to a close at 11.30 with the usual votes of thanks and the singing of the Welsh National An- them, the solo being taken by Mr. A. Davies.
