Making the soldiers comfortable in Cranbourne

A social centre for soldiers in Cranbourne had been using the parish Sunday School, but was now moving to purpose built premises.

The Y.M.C.A. have built a large Room in Hatchet Lane, and consequently, the Sunday School is no longer needed. The lady helpers, and the members of the Men’s Society are transferring their services to the Y.M.C.A. hut; they have spared no time or trouble to make the soldiers comfortable in the Sunday School. Mrs. Creasy and Mrs. Maxwell Williams undertook the onerous duty of providing refreshments, and their work has been much appreciated. Nor must we forget the Boy Scouts who arranged the Sunday School as a recreation room, ran errands and helped wash up and generally made themselves useful.
