“Glad and proud that we are able to make a patriotic sacrifice”

A Reading church gave up the use of its hall for war purposes.

THE INSTITUTE

As already announced, the Royal Flying Corps have now taken over the entire control of the Institute buildings, and we as a parish may be glad and proud that we are able to make a patriotic sacrifice by surrendering it, and by what sometimes seems harder, attending with equal or greater regularity, meetings arranged elsewhere. The large Hall is still allowed to be used by the vicar for certain fixtures, but notice of these has to be given some time beforehand, and the number is limited.
