Exerting times

Worshippers at St Andrew’s Church in Clewer were generous:

The Hospital Collection on July 2nd amounted to £29 10s. 9d., which was most satisfactory, considering the many claims that are made upon us all in these exerting times, both by way of War Charities and heavy Taxation, in addition to the higher cost of living. We know also that the Hospital Saturday Collection was slightly in excess of last year.
