Rushden Echo, Friday, July 6, 1928, transcribed by John Collins
A GARDEN PARTY was held at The Laurels, Wellingborough-road, the residence of Alderman and Mrs. C. W. Horrell, on Saturday afternoon in connection with the Sunday school anniversary of the Park-road Wesleyan Church. Unsettled weather interfered with the attendance, but there were long bright intervals and the whole programme was gone through. The tea was arranged by Mesdames S. E. Lawman, C. S. Wooding, J. Perkins, A. E. Bates, J. Dickens, E. Miller, G. Parker, and J. Nix. Miss F. Buttling’s pupils of the Intermediate School gave a most attractive display of Morris dancing, and Mr. J. Nix conducted community singing, the Arioso Band supplying the music. Other attractions included clock-golf, tennis, and novelty games and competitions organised by Miss A. O. Capon and the junior department. The secretary for the general arrangements was Mr. S. E. Lawman.
