Making the best of the difficulties and privations of the times in which we live

Children in Earley would show their solidarity with the troops by doing without refreshments at the annual Sunday School summer party.

SUNDAY SCHOOLS
We hope to hold our Sunday School Summer Treat on Wednesday, July 18th. In loyal obedience to the King’s Proclamation, and in accordance with the wishes of the Food Controller, we shall not have any tea this year, but shall hope to have a jolly evening of games and sports, and we feel certain that all our young people will show the same spirit as our splendid troops and make the best of the difficulties and privations of the times in which we live.
