RED CROSS WORKERS
A meeting was held in the Shire Hall on Tuesday evening to discuss the question of honoring the Red Cross ladies. Captain G L Dean presided, and there was a good attendance, including a number of returned soldiers.
It was stated that 200 pairs of socks, 1000 shirts, and 150 underpants had been provided by the local branch, and that £220 in cash had been collected up to last November.
Mr L Sparrow was appointed hon. secretary of the movement, and a committee, comprising Messrs S Woods, J M Wise, Mrs F OBeirne, Misses Barry and Godden, and all the local returned soldiers, was appointed. It was decided to hold a social, concert, and dance in the Parish Hall on 8th October. No charge will be made for admission, the soldiers guaranteeing to defray all expenses.
Medals will be presented to the chief officers of the branch and certificates to all workers. Miss Barry and Messrs Sparrow, Roberts, and Nelson were elected as concert committee, and Mesdames R Nichol, Chibnall, Murrell, and Misses Nelson and Craine a refreshment committee.
