[BAZAAR AND SALE OF WORK
The annual bazaar and sale of work promoted chiefly by tbe lady members of St Andrew's Anglican Ohurch, Tinwald, was held m. the Tinwald Oddfellows' Hall on Thursday afternoon and evening. In former ytars the function has been held on Easter Monday; bub this yeur the Committee decided to alter the date as on Easter Monday a large number of the parishioners are away from home. The change of date proved successful and right throughout the afternoon and especially m the evening the hall was paoked with patrons, a fact which proves conclusively that the good work m which the lady members of the congregation are engaged receives the fullest appreciation at the hands of the parishioners as a whole. For some considerable time past the ladies' guild m connection with the churoh have held periodical sewing bees at the vicarage, and the articles manufactured at these meetings formed one of the chief features of attraction at the bazaar. The building was nicely draped with bunting, kindly lent by Mr W. Patching, and flowers and shrubbery given by Messrs Clark Bros., the work of decorating having been discharged by the Rev. S. N. Blakiston, Messrs David Tippett and T. Timms. The following were m charge of the various stalls:—Work stall —Mesdames Blakiston, A. F. Roberts, and Miss C. Bell; Produce stall—Mrs C. Bennett and Mr John Clark; Jumble stall—Mesdames Cobb, J. Clark and Hoodie; Eefreshment stall—Mesdames H. Thompson, Tippett, T. Williams, T, Wilson and Misses' M. Robinson and Thompson j Easter treeMisses Hampton, Jennings, Thomas and S. Biggs. Afternoon tea was dispensed by the lad^ea and- m the evening much interest centred m the various guessing competitions. In the produce gifts the farmers rendered liberal support, Mr H, Ford per Mr <J. A. M. Buckley donating a large cart fall of products including several prime bheep. The Bum of £5 was derived from the Christmas tree, while a total net profit of over £iO was the outcome of the affair, which the Committee consider is highly satisfactory, Much credit is due to the ladies, one and all, together with the male assistants, for the unqualified success of tihe Bazaar.
