Woodborough Newsletter - July 1895

The Girls’ Friendly Society will meet at the Vicarage on Tuesday July 9th, at 4 p.m. The sick member, Sarah Cook, is to be entertained at Woodborough for two weeks, arriving on July 8th. It is hoped that all members of the G.F.S. will do their best to make her stay a happy one.

Woodborough Newsletter - August 1895

The Girls’ Friendly Society was entertained to tea by Mrs Buckland on July 9th. The annual festival was held on July 13th. All our members, with two exceptions, started in carriages from Woodborough at 1.30 p.m. and drove by Oxton, where we fell in with the Arnold members, to Southwell. As each party arrived by road or rail they took their places in the Minster and much enjoyed the beauty of the music and singing. After service the whole party sat down to tea in the Schools. Miss Sarah Cook, the sick member, adopted by the branch, who is spending her holiday at Woodborough, was introduced. It was announced that the first prize for Needlework in the Candidates’ Class had been won by Alice Ulyett of Woodborough. Our thanks are due to Canon Trebeck for giving us every facility for appreciating the grandeur and beauty of our Cathedral Church.

Note: Many early editions of the Newsletter are missing, from those available no other reports have been found so it is not known for how long this Society survived. [Ed 2015].
