January 1895 was a month of hard weather but July one of drought, the worst since 1868 'when some of us can remember the weary months of heat and dryness, the constant expectation of rain, the constant disappointment.' And then it did rain, a glorious thunderstorm.' The August magazine reports that the school closes earlier than usually because of some cases of scarlatina. Annie Lloyd's shop needs support as does poor William Instone In August the Mother's Union went on a trip to Worcester.
