The New Year opens with far happier and brighter prospects than we have known since 1914

The vicar of Reading St Mary was optimistic about the future.

The Vicar’s Notes

The very best wishes to all S. Mary’s people for 1919. The New Year opens with far happier and brighter prospects than we have known since 1914. And so we may well look forward to the future with hope and courage.

All would wish to give their truest sympathy to Dr. and Mrs. Holden on the sad loss of their boy from influenza: also to Mrs. Collins, of Gun Street, on the sudden death of her husband.

R.I.P.
