THE SECRETARY’S REPORT
What a memorable day Saturday, July 1st of last year proved to be when we celebrated the centenary of Longwood Tower with a procession and field day. What a sight it was to see the procession, gaily clad in costume or uniform, and with three bands, wending its way through Longwood.
And what a difference in weather we had for the Sing . . . rain practically all day, forcing us to hold the festival in church, thus cutting our collections, but still we were able to distribute £ 85 to local charities.
On behalf of the Committee I extend sincere thanks for the support shown in the last year, knowing full well that you will give us your full support at this year’s Sing.
R. MASSEY, Hon. Secretary.
