A very enjoyable evening given by th© Red Cross Committee was spent in the Winslow Hall on Tuesday, May 6. for the occasion of bidding farewell to Messrs Banks and Roffey. Mrs Banks had been a member of the lied Cross since it opened at Winslow, and much regret was felt at the departure of Mr and Mrs Banks and family, they being such a help in the district.
Mr HopAvood, in a fitting speech presented Mrs Banks with a handsome silver egg-cruet, and Mr Banks with a silver inkstand.
Mr Hopwood next spoke of the help Mr and Mrs Roffey had been in musical items, and presented Mrs Roffoy with a handsome silver teapot and Mr Roffey with a set of carvers. Mr Banks and Mr Roffey suitably responded. Dancing was kept up till the small hours, Mr Reeves being an efficient M.C. Music was supplied, by Mr Challis and Misses Hampton. The evening was brought to. a close by.the singing of "Auld Lang Syne." .
