SECRETARYS REPORT
I am pleased to report that during the past few months there has been a slight increase in the number of people taking an active part in the Sing. But this happier position does not mean that we are completely satisfied—there is still work for many more.
This year marks the centenary of the Huddersfield Borough, and the celebrations have pointed the way to our own centenary five years hence. In order to build up a little reserve of money for that occasion, the committee hope to organise a few social events. I hope that you will give us your support and encouragement.
On behalf of the committee I thank you for your continued support.
R. MASSEY, Secretary.
