Victoria Tent, No. 965.—The members of the above Tent held their anniversary soiree on Monday, February 10th, in the Garden-street Congregational school, when between 40 and 50 sat down to an excellent meat tea. After tea the chair was taken by Councillor Percy Rawson, who is a staunch teetotaler. Bro. W. Waller, the Secretary, read the annual statement, which showed the gain for the year to be £33 16s 6d, and the total amount of funds in hand £226 3s 5 ½d. A very pleasant evening was spent, readings being given by Bros. Bridges and Single; recitations by Bros. Whitehead, Bedford, and Harrop; and singing by Mr. Crowther and Miss Nichols. Speeches were given by Bros. Marshall, Grayson, Parkin, and Mr. Hill.
