• Fishguard Easter Vestry. The Vicar of Fishguard, Rev. W. Evans, pre- sided at the Easter Vestry meeting at St. Mary's Church on Monday morning, when there was a fairly large number of parishioners present. Mr. D. P. Lewis proposed the xe-eloct ion of Capt. Berry as people's warden. Mr. W. 1L Eynon seconded the motion, which was carrcd unanimously. The Vicar then intimated his great pleasure in electing Mr. T. G. Bennett as his church warden for the coming year, and expressed his pleasure that Capt. Berry had been re-elected. In the trials he had passed through during the year, he said, he had never turned in vain for support to the two church hardens they had re-elected that day. He ex- perienced the same grateful feeling and wished to convey his thanks also to the Superintend- ents and the teachers of th-3 Sunday School, and to Mr. Carey the organist. After the holiday which he was going to take, and felt the need of after his recent hard and trying work. He intended to call a meeting to lay down a definite scheme of work for the future and to discuss some very important matters. Mr. T. G. Bennett before reading the accounts for the year thanked the Vicar for appointing him again as his churchwarden for the coming year. With regard to the finances of the Church he had to report that they were in a satis factory condition. They had during the yar collected the sum of E157 10s Od-from Easter 1D05 to Easter 1906. They started with a sum of over C6 in hand from the previous year, and the expenses during the year had been £ 144 4s lOd. The Easter offertory on Sunday was L19 5s. 6d. Out of this sum the vicar had received a cheque*for £16. He considered that the Easter offertory had been very satisfactory, considering also that they had lost through death some particularly good contributors to wards the Church funds. Capt. Barry thanked the parishioners for having again appointed him as their Church warden, and promised to acquit himself to the best of his ability in the coming year. It was moved and carried unanimously that Mr. H. Davies (postmaster), should act as auditor of the accounts for next year. Mr. D. Rees rose to suggest the discussion of other parochial affairs at the meeting, but the Vicar satd that the meeting had been called exclusively with the object of appoint- ing Churchwardens, and to receive the ac counts, but he promised, as he had said be- fore, that he would call another meeting after he had returned from his holidays when the other matters could be discussed with freedom. He was very much obliged to the congrega- tion and to the parish for the iEl6 odd that had been handed over to him as the result of the collection on Sunday. He hoped the Church would make the same progress during the year, as it had done in the past. He was glad to say that the communicants on Sunday numbered one-eighth of the whole population of the parish. The number of eggs sent was nearly a thousand, which was a very gratifying fact to them all, and showed the prosperous state of the Church in the district.
