Cherries instead of tea

Earley children enjoyed their summer treat despite the lack of a meal.

SUNDAY SCHOOLS
The Sunday School Summer Treat had to be postponed from Wednesday, July 18th, on account of the wet, to Saturday, July 21st, when we had a beautiful evening. Although Wednesday afternoon was so wet, we were able to distribute a bag of cherries to each of the children, which were much appreciated. By kind permission of Mr and Mrs Friedlander the games and sports were held in the park, and although the usual tea and scrambles were not given, owing to the Proclamation, the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
