TEBQYNON. RESTORATION OF THE CHURCH.—On Friday evening, the 18th inst, a meeting was held in the Schoolroom to consider what steps should be taken to carry on the restoration of the parish church which Lord Sudeley had commenced, but which, owiiati to circumstances arising, which is deeply and widely deplored, his loidship is unable to complete. The Rev. W Vaughau Jones, Rector, occupied the chair, and read the notice conveying the meeting, and called upon Mr W. S. Owen, Cefngwifad, iuto whose hands the work had hitherto been entrusted, tc report as to the state of the funds. It was shown that about .£700 had already been expended, and that about J £ 450 more was lequirad to finish the contemplated restora- tion and wnich must be raised by subscription. It was unanimously resolved that au appeal be made by means of circulars to the friends of the church, and that local collectors be appointed to oanvass the parish for subscriptions, and that the work of restor- i ig the church be proceeded with forthwith. A com- mittee was appointed, consisting of the Keotor, churchwardens. Messrs. W. Scott-Owen, Richard Jones, and Wiilinm Gittins, and a small committee to superintend the work, consisting of Messrs W. Scott-Owen, Richard Jones and Henry Corfield. The Rector was appointed Secretary, and Mr W. S. Owen, Treasurer. The following suais were promised in the room. Rev W. Vaughan Jones, i220, Mr W. Soo t-Owen, X20, Mr William Gittina, Hafodtalog XIO, Mr William Corfield £ 9, and Mr B. H. Pbiliips .£3, and in case cash should be required for payments before the subscriptions come in, Mr William Gittina o offered to lend .£100 free of interest and Mr W. Cor- field and B. H. Phillips (chui chwirdens) offered to go joint security for Xioo, if necessary. It ia hoped that the appeal for fnnds to complete the much needed work of restoriug this ancieut parish church (which dates from probably the 13ch century) will meet with a generous response.
