Belgian refugees leave Ascot

A Belgian refugee couple who had found a home in Ascot had moved on.

THE BELGIAN REFUGEES, to whom the Parish has given hospitality for two years, have left Ascot. The furniture kindly lent by friends for their house has been returned. Some of it which is not wanted back by the owners is to be sold, by their permission, at the Rummage Sale on December 1st.

The thanks of the parish are due to those who managed the Belgians’ affairs during their stay among us. We trust Monsieur and Madame Dardin will be happy in their new home in Richmond.
