Rifle Club

I wish to hold a Rifle Club meeting at the Vicarage, on Wednesday, February 11th, at 7 o’clock; this will be the only notice issued, so will all the men interested in our shooting please be present.


The nearest places at which the Bishop will hold confirmations are as follows:

Swanage           –           November 22nd, 3 p.m.

There will be no regular classes formed, but if there are any who wish to be prepared for either of these dates, I shall be very glad to arrange times most convenient to them, provided they let me know at least seven weeks before one of the three above mentioned dates.
