I- BOSBURY. TREAT To SCHOOL- CHILDP.E.N. -On Thursday in last week the scholars attending the Boabury Schools were entertained to tea, given them by two ladies of the parish, Mrs Buck (Noverings) and Mrs Emberson (The Grange). This treat was originally fixed for January last, but owing to illness amongst the children the tea was post- poned until summer, and only the gifts dis- tributed at that time. The tea was provided at the Noverings and proved a welcome innovation to the children, who thoroughly enjoyed them- selves, two important factors being that the weather was propitious and the surroundings beautiful. The children marched from their respective schools with flags gaily waving, and reached the Noverings about 4 p.m., where they found a bountiful tea awaiting them, with many visitors all anxious and willing to aid in supplying their wants. After doing full justice to all the good things provided, an adjournment was made to a meadow in front of The Noverings, and games and races were indulged in until 6 30. Songs were then given by the boys and girls respectively, and the infants gave, recitations. The Head-Master (Mr J K Job), on behalf of the children, heartily thanked Mrs. Buck and Mrs Emberson for their kindness in providing such a pleasant afternoon, and called for cheers for the two ladies. These were heartily given, as were also others for the visitors and helpers. Mrs Buck expressed on behalf of Mrs Emberson and herself the pleasure it had given them to be surrounded by so many happy faces and hoped they had all enjoyed themselves. She then called for cheers for the Head master (Mr Job) and the Head- mistress (Miss Arrowsmith) and the other teachers (Miss Job, Miss Griffin and Miss Gibbs.) These having been given the National Anthem was sung, and the children went home, receiving (as they passed Mrs Buck and Mrs Emberson) some cherries and a bun. The cherries were the gift of Mr W S Lane, The Farm, and were much appreciated. Besides the donors of the tea and the teachers, there were present:—Rev E and Mrs Parminter, Miss Beith and Miss Whetstone (N overings), Miss Ballard and Miss MacAlister (Grange), Mrs and Miss H Lane (Old Court), the Misses Manning, Mrs Green, Mrs G Collett, Mr Samson, and others.
