Our best thanks are again due to Mrs Brigham this year for the time and thought she has given to the Coal Club.  Her good work is much appreciated throughout the village, both by the poor and by those who realise what an amount of labour and of anxiety is incurred by the successful carrying on of a Coal Club.

A Confirmation will be held at Yarm on March 7th.  It is requested that the names of those desirous to be confirmed may be sent in at once to the Vicar.

The members of the Choir and their friends gathered together at the Schoolhouse on December 29th, for their Annual Tea.  After a comfortable tea dancing began, and continued with unabated spirit until one o'clock in the morning.  The dancing was interspersed with a few much-appreciated songs from Miss Clarkson.  

The Sunday School Tea took place on December 31st.  Oh, children!  judging from the noise you made you must have been happy.  Prizes were given to the scholars for attendance at school during the year.
