A Camp Meeting was held on Sunday last by the Primitive Methodists of Irchester under the leadership of Mr R Slater, of Wellingboro’, supported by Messrs Jolley (Northampton), Stubbs (Rushden), Plowman and Brown (Wellingboro’), Munton and Fletcher (Kettering). The morning service was held in the street near the town pump, the afternoon service in a field kindly lent by Mr Young, and the evening service in the chapel.
