This is one of the most populous functions of the year, and the gathering this year, notwithstanding the terrible weather with the frost and snow, was the largest we have witnessed on similar occasions. The arrange¬ ments were superintended by Mrs LI. Hughes, assisted by the following ladies, who presided at the tables:—;Mrs and the Misses Dalton, Mrs Peers, and the Misses Peers, Mrs E. W. Johnson, Mrs Mather, Mrs Woodhousa, Mrs and the Misses Eakin, Mrs Roberts (Huyton), Mrs Shad Roberts, Mrs Timms, Mrs Barrow, Mrs and Miss Parker, Mrs Bevan, Mrs Sutton Jones, Miss Buckley, Miss Price, Mrs Cotton, Mrs James Smith, the Misses Sherratt, Mrs Smith, Anstey; Miss Smith, Mrs Evans, Orme's View; and Mrs Evans, Trinity Square; Mrs John Walker, Mrs Piatt, Mrs Penney, Mrs Broome, Mrs Roskill, and Miss Beamish were unable to be present owing to the bad weather. The catering of Mrs Williams, Cambridge Restaurant, gave the utmost satisfaction. In the evening a miscellaneous concert was given, and after a long and excellent programme was ended, the Rector thank¬ ed all for their kind assistance. The surplus money after clearing the expenses of the tea and entertainment will be given to the 'Church Sunday Schools and Mis¬ sion Rooms of the Parish.
