There was a crowded congregation at Holy Trinity Church on Sunday afternoon, when the Bishop of Worcester, administered the rite of confirmation to over 100 candidates.......The Bishop gave two impressive addresses. He pointed out that religious privilege could not be separated from religious responsibility. In the reawakening that would come after the war they must get rid of all insincerity in religion, and they would have to come out and show the same seriousness in religion as they were in everything else.


At a meeting held Saturday last, the committee of the Worcester city and County Chrysanthemum Fruit, Root, and Honey Society, who recently held an exhibition in the Public Hall, Worcester, on behalf of the Red Cross Fund, announced that they had realised the sum of £60, of which £30 will be handed to the Mayor of Worcester and £30 to Sir Harry Vernon, Hon. Secretary for the County.
