The churchyard is being extended, a public meeting was held in Wolverhampton to start a branch there but the vicar would like to start a boys friendly society. In March the Night School has closed for the summer and has been well attended. Mr Whickham attends the girls school once a week to give out library books. The parish officers for the year were Mr Eyken and Ridley - churchwardens, Mr Blundell and Henry Sing are waywatrdens and Messrs Hemming, Stokes, Broughall and Raywood are overseers. In May (23rd) the vicar attended a church event in Wolverhampton. There was a dinner at the Peacock Hotel, Wolverhampton and during it there was a thunderstorm. At the height of the storm the chimney was struck and fell into the yard below and at the same time some of the electric fluid entered the room. The bishops prizes are awarded. The schools are being thoroughly washed and disinfected in the summer holiday although there have only been a few cases of scarletina. There are 100 boys,88 girls and 59 infants present on school inspection day. Attendance at the harvest festival was good - standing room only in the evening. The old Grammar School has been bought by Mr Davenport from the trustees and a library and reading room is to be established there.

Interestingly there are two advertisements, William Instone, who is blind is advertising himself as a basket and mat maker and Sarah Philpott of Littlegains is looking for sewing work. She has given up her job to look after her mother. Two members of the choir have died and there is an obituary of sorts. James lloyd was only a child and John Wood aged 74
