Music and feasting for the soldiers in Maidenhead

Soldiers billeted in Maidenhead were making good use of the Congregational Church Sunday School premises in their spare time, and there was a party on Christmas Day.

Our Schoolrooms are again at the disposal of the soldiers for recreation and letter writing. The kind friend who provided a piano last winter has renewed his generosity for the present need. We have borrowed a bagatelle table, and would be most grateful for the loan of another, or indeed of several others. The ladies of the B.W.T.A. have again undertaken to be in attendance every evening to mend clothing and to put on buttons, and the refreshment bar is once more in active operation. The rooms were highly decorated for the Christmas holidays, and on Christmas evening Lieut. Davies, of the 2/3 East Anglians R.E., gave his men a party therein with music and feasting.
