Ladies, 1st, umbrella, Miss Carleton 2nd, umbrella, Miss Underwood 3rd. umbrella, Mrs Winter. Mr T A Pedlingham proposed a vote of thanks to Miss Boyd. Dancing was afterwards indulged in. A FORMER COLWALL CRICKETER. I Cricketers in the district, and Colwall in particular, should note with satisfaction the announcement that at a meeting held last week of the Surry County Committee, Mr C T A Wilkinson was elected Captain of the 1st XI until the end of June of the coming season. Mr Wilkinson, it will be remembered, a few years ago was an assistant master at the Hill-side School, West Malvern, and was a regular member of the Colwall team. During his connection with the club he was responsible for several brilliant feats with bat and ball—a forceful and punishing right-hand batsman and a slow left-arm bowler, whilst his brilliant fielding in the slips will easily be recalled by those with whom he came in contact. Last year he played for Surrey 2nd most consistently, and the high position to which he has now been appointed we are sure he will serve with distinction, and his career will be watched with interest by his Colwall friends. ANNIVERSARY. I At the time the Rev. C Harris took up the charge of the parish a few years ago there were no guilds there. Since then not only have two new Guilds-one for each sex-been formed, but the Guild of St. Timothy has been revived, and is flourishing. The anniversary is kept within the octave of St. Timothy. On Sunday morning a celebration of the Holy Communion was held at the parish church. The Rector was the celebrant. About 36 had tea at the Girls' School on Monday. Mrs Harris (Rectory) and Miss Twynam presided at the tables. A meeting of a social character followed. The Rector presided, and spoke on the objects of the Guild, and incidentally mentioned that at present he was extremely busy revising one of his theolo- gical books for publication. The regularity of the members as a whole had been very good. He wished to thank Mr and Mrs Charles Ped- lingham, who had undertaken the duty of getting the room ready for their meetings. Later Mrs Harris played a pianoforte selection. The Rector sang "The Deathless Ary,' and Mr C Pedlingham The Careful Man." Miss Ryan recited a hospital incident, and Mr A T Waters The Shadow on the Blind." The Rector gave a reading, and several items on Mr A Evans' gramaphone were enjoyed. A special service was then held in Elms Chapel (lent by Mrs F G Meakin) when the Rector gave an adddress on the privileges of church membership. BAND OF HOPE TREAT. I The members of the Winnings Band of Hope, which has a memberhip of over 200, were, at the kind invitation of Mrs Ballard, entertained to their Annual Christmas Treat at the Temperance Hall, on Friday night. The children assembled at the Hall at 5.30, when a substantial tea was provided, which needless to say was much appreciated. All eyes were now turned to the large Christmas tree with its large assortment of toys, etc., and when it was lit up presented a pretty spectacle. Prizes were then distributed for regular attendance and good conduct, 21 boys and 14 girls being recipients of them. All the members also had the privilege of choosing a toy for themselves, and Mrs Ballard, with her usual thoughtfulness, always supplies each one with a useful article of wearing apparel, and this year each received a nice warm scarf. During the evening a large number of the children's parents attended and witnessed the prize-giving, and they were also provided with light refreshments. Songs and recitations were given by Nancy Martin, Joyce Davis, May Roberts, J Goodwin, Percy Allen, Gladys Oliver, Isabella Ince, May Dipple, Horace Lewis, Gerald Dipple, etc. Before the close oranges, buns and sweets were distributed amongst the children, and everyone appeared to have thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Amongst those who assisted were:—Miss M Ballard, Miss A Ballard, Miss Underwood, Miss Jacques, Mrs Munro, Miss Jones, Miss Johns, Mrs Smart, Mrs Wall, etc.
