CORWEN DISTRICT NOTES
CORWEN & DISTRICT NOTES. R. C. Hanlon, son of Mr. Hanlon, dentist, II Rhyl and Ccrwen, has joined the 2nd/4th R.W.F. as 2nd Lieutenant. When will the Authorities sanction the building of a new office for the Registrar of Marriages in Corwen. Many people don't like the idea of getting married at the Corwen Registry Office because it is in the Poor Law Institution and are afraid of being slighted with the term Priodi yn y Workhouse." It is time matters were improved at Corwen. There is a Quoiting Competition for the Championship of Merionethshire on Saturday next at Bala. By-the-way what has become of the Corwen Quoiting Club ? At the examination held at Chester, on Tuesday, in connection with the London College of Music, Miss Olive Morris, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Morris, The Schools, Glyndyfrdwy, secured a first-class certificate in the advance intermediate examination. We heartily congratulate Miss Morris, upon her success. She is a pupil of Mr. Reginald Williams, Llangollen. A band of hand-bell ringers has been formed at Glyndyfrdwy under the leadership of Mr. Robert Pritchard. The band plays high-class selections daily at the School which are greatly appreciated by the public. They intend competing at Belie Vue next October. The band includes several young men from Corwen. It has been suggt sted that a meeting be called with a view to forming a town guard at Corwen, and to ask some of the local ex-soldiers and volunteers to act as instructors. At an inquest recently held at Abergele on the body of a motor cyclist who was accidentally killed, the Foreman of the Jury stated that they wished to enter their strong protest against the authorities allowing hedges on narrow roads to go untrimmed, as they were dangerous. They asked that the Coroner would ask the lucal Council to compel farmers to cut the high hedges, and if they did not do go to carry out the work and sue the farmers for the expense. We have received complaints from local motorists about the high hedges in the district of Edeyrnion especially on cross roads and narrow winding lanes. The best thing for you motorists to do is to send a deputation to the next meeting of the Edeyrn- ion Rural District Council which takes place on Friday next and lay your complaint before them. Of course the Clerk of the Council must be notified in time to put it on the agenda. There is no doubt that the hedges in the district are in an awful state and the farmers will be pleased to trim them. Messrs. Bert Fletcher, tailor, Gaer View, Corwen, and Tom Peake, Corwen, joined the army yesterday (Monday). Others intend joining next week. An Organ Recital was held at Riig Chapel, Corwen, on Sunday evening by Mr. Bradiiren Jones, when he played several new but difficult pieces with extraordinary cleverness. The vocalists were Master Eric Weeks, of Gwydd- el wern, who sang 0 for the wings of a Dove (Mendelssohn), with beautiful effect Mr. R. H. Davies, Felin Rftg, gave a powerful and perfect rendering of one of Handel's most difficult solos from the Messiah entitled Why do the Nations Mr Thomas Stevens, Riig Hall, who possesses a sweet tenor voice with a good range, gave a magnificent ren- dering of Mendelssobn's Sing ye Praise," with a little more training this singer should become one of the most prominent vocalists in the district. The following selections were played on the organ by Mr. Jones :—Choral Song and Fugue in C (S. S. Wesley) Romance in D flat (Lemare) Russian March (Scotson Clark) 1 Sunday Morning (with Accompaniment of Chimes) (Edwin Evans) Offertoire in F Minor (W. Faulkes); Pedal Study, The Magic Harp (J. A. Meale) Fantasy on the National Anthems of the National Anthems (C. W. Pearce). The Chapel was crowded. The silver collection realized a good sum which will be divided between the local Belgian Fund and the Organist Fund. The recital was greatly appreciated by all who were present. On Monday afternoon while Mr. John Davies, Insurance Agent, Glyndwr Terrace, Corwen, was' cycling down the bill near Victoria Bridge, Corwen, the brakes of his bicycle failed to act, with the result that he lost control and was thrown on to the ground and received serious injuries to his legs. He had to be conveyed home in a trap and afterwards received medical attention. Corwen Free Li brary- There is a general complaint that Magazines, Pictorial Papers, and other issues supplied by the RATE- PAYERS' MONEY are continually locked up and are only to be seen as a great favour. If these periodicals are not for public use why buy them at all and put the money to some better use. Why should a few people be favoured at the public expense. To be con- tinued in our next if no improvement is made. A Motor Charabanc will be run from the Crown Garage on Monday next (August Bank Holiday) to RHYL, return fare, 5/ starting at 10-30 a.m. The Charabanc will also be run to BANGOR (National Eisteddfod) on Thursday, August 5th, return fare, 7/6, start- ing 6 a.m. Seats must be booked in advance for each trip.—ADV. ■
