Mr Robert M. Lloyd, of the National Provincial Bank, who has been a con- spicuous figure on the cricket field, the hockey ground, and the golf links, has transferred his services to the Wrexham branch of the N. P. Bank. Mr R. A. Wilson, who has been employed at the District Counties Bank, has gone to Coventry. At the Lion Hotel on Tuesday night Mr Wilson was feted by a large number of friends. Mr C. W. Norton occupied the chair, and Dr Fred Wilson was vice-president. After ample justice had been done to the excellent fare provided by Mr Henry Beale, the loyal and a number of other toasts were proposed. The toast of the guest was entrusted to the Chairman, Canon Williams, Messrs A. I. Guest, G. N. Phillips, and David Morgan. The speakers referred to Mr Wilson'a exceptional prowess as an athlete, to his keen observation as a naturalist, to his faithful diligence as a chorister in the Parish Church Choir, to his assiduous industry in his profession, and finally to his many estimable qualities which had so endeared him to the inhabitants of the town after a residence of only two years. The toast was most enthusiastically drunk, and musical honours and a salvo of cheering were also accorded the guest of the evening. Mr Wilson made a brief, but able and witty response in acknowledging the many good wishes for his continued success. A number of topical ditties were sung by Mr Tom Richards; other songs by Mr H. Beale and Harry James, some gramophone selections further enlivened a most pleasant gathering, which, perforce, had to break up at 11 p.m. A letter from Mr R. M. Lloyd, a co-hockeyite of Mr Wilson's, was read by Mr David Morgan. By the loss of two such stalwarts from the ranks of the hockey club, it is feared that the prosperous career of the Newtown XI may suffer a check.
