6th January 1899 – Goytrey Bachelors Tea
The enterprising bachelors of Saron Baptist Chapel gave an excellent tea on Monday evening week.
Mr David Morgan, The Wern; Mr Con. Pritchard Ty Rhuewan; Mr H. Humphries, Penystair; and Mr W. Evans, Coalbrook presided at the tables, which they had very tastefully decorated with evergreens and flowers.
After tea a very interesting programme was given by the Sunday School scholars and friends.
The choir under the leadership of Mr Morgan in their selections, “The Saviours Birth2 and “Christmas Bells” gave evidence of a patient practise and careful training; Miss A.E. Carpenter accompanied.
The singing of the Mamhilad Male Voice Party conducted by Mr Ernest Evans was a pleasant item.
Miss Edith Grence and party in dialogue “New Brooms Sweep Clean” elected loud applause.
Miss M. Brown played accompaniment to the quartet, and Miss Carpenter solos.
The Chairman, the Rev. G.G. Cole, needless to say by his witty and appropriate remarks contributed much to the enjoyment of the meeting.
On Sunday last through the generosity of Mr Pyman of Goytrey House, who doubled the Anniversary collections, each scholar was presented with a suitable prize, and this was in addition to the usual trip given in the summer.
Great praise is also due to Mr John Evans who although ill at the time came out to take his place in the chair, and to Mrs Minnie Evans and Mrs Maggie Jones for their solos.
