Ash Wednesday. Bright, sunny, frosty. Service in Church, Litany and Ante Communion. Churched Mrs F Ward of Burdrop and Mrs James Dyer of Sibford Ferris.

The Drawing grant arrived on Monday. £3.4. I visited school on Monday, took Club money etc and gave Langley cheque for £1.12, half Drawing grant, and paid him 5/3½ for bread and milk supplied to little school-children who seemed to need it at 11 am each day during the severe weather.

Walked round “Pig & Whistle” and Pound Lane with Bell this afternoon. Sunny but very muddy.
