....It was stated that 80 percent of the publicans present had decided not to open during the hours when no intoxicating drinks can be sold.....Only the principle hotels were open. As one publican remarked "if the whole of the takings of this class of goods were profit, it would
hardly pay for the fire"
Memorial Window At Claines
Dedicated by the Bishop
For a quarter of a century the late Canon A.S. Porter worked in Claines Parish, and his long and faithful ministry is well remembered by all who knew him as their vicar. He was held in highest esteem, and it was natural that so many of his old parishioners attended Claines church on Sunday afternoon when the Bishop of Worcester (Dr. Yeatman Biggs) dedicated a memorial window to the late Canon. The church was crowded.
