A very pleasant afternoon was spent at Mrs. A. H Mcintosh's, "The Willows," on October 20th. It was arranged to help swell tbe Red Cross Funds and took the form of a Pillowcase afternoon. The hostess, wearin a pretty gown of French grey received ber visitors on the verandah, and was ably assisted in her duties by ber sisters Mrs Aitchison of Chorlton and Miss Helena Brocklehurst of Christchurch. The time was spent with guessing competitions and musical items and a dainty repast was partaken of on the verandah. Some four dozen pillow oase3 were given and these added a considerable parcel to tbe already numerous articles tbat bave gone through Mrs Aitcbison's hands, she- being the originator of the Red Cross Sewing Graild of Chorlton.
