br> Instead of the customary happy new year wish, my prayer is that gods blessing may rest upon us all during the year to come, and that before the close of it the world may be at peace again, and that he may bring good out of evil. Of the number of those at present serving there country, nearly 100, 1 has given his life, Arthur Scaife of the Royal Field Artillery, and his family have our deep sympathy. We have had the sound of the enemies heavy guns very close to, and it was not pleasant; The reality of the war has been brought close to home to us; I hope we may never hear them again, but we must not forget that, wherever we are, we are in godís keeping.

DEATHS

We have to mourn the loss of one of our most respected parishioners,
Mr. Christopher Maw, of Low Moor, who was called to rest on February 16th.
He had only been ailing a few days and the end came unexpectedly. Mr. Maw had farmed Low Moor for many years, and was esteemed and looked up to by everybody as a model farmer, and a straight, upright man. He leaves a widow and a large grown up family, to whom we offer our most respectful sympathy.

JUMBLE SALE. (April.)

The jumble sale turned out better than was expected, and £6 2s. 6d. was taken.
Will those who would like to do some work for the Belgians in Belgium, come to the vicarage for material. There have now been sent to our soldiers and to the Belgians since the beginning, 655 garments of different sorts, through the vicarage, not counting the many other things which have probably been sent from here independently.

VESTRY MEETING APRIL 7th. 1915

The Easter vestry meeting was held on Wednesday evening, April 7th, the vicar taking the chair. The vicar expressed his gratification that the parish contribution to the central diocesan fund was so good, amounting to £11 11s. 0d; £3 8s. 4d. above what was asked for.
This was made up of one Sunday collection in church, when his appeal was generously responded to, and sums otherwise given in the parish, varying from £1. to 2d. He expressed his thanks to those who kindly collected, and those who gave.
He also spoke of the generosity of the congregation in making so handsome an Easter day offering in church in aid of the fund for current expenses, which had suffered very seriously owing to circumstances connected with the war.
The dayís collections amounted to £25 17s. 9d. converting a possible deficit of nearly £20. into a balance in hand of nearly £6.
After the passing of a cordial vote of thanks to the church wardens and sidesmen for their services during the past year, they were all re-appointed, VIZ;

CHURCH CLOCK

At the same meeting the church clock was discussed, and the following statement was made.
The church clock went on strike the other day, at least went off striking and stopped for a few days, the main spring having broken. It has been repaired, but will probably go irregularly for bit, so it must not be depended upon too much for catching trains!
