Temperance Association

Loughborough Advertiser - September 4th 1873

On Wednesday evening, August 27th, the usual fortnightly meeting of the above society was held in the Primitive Methodist Chapel, the Rev W J Staynes in the chair, when a large number of members and friends were present. The Chairman, in opening the meeting, said they had met together for the purpose of promoting a good and noble cause, and he hoped all present, and particularly the young, would aid in spreading that cause, so that they, through their own self-denial, might, by the grace of God, be the means of raising those who, through drink, were brought to poverty and misery, to an honourable sphere in life. An excellent address was then delivered by Mr Smith, of Chilwell College. Other addresses were subsequently delivered by Messrs Bennett, Attenborough, and Phipps; readings by Mr H Tacey, and recitations by Miss Ward, and Masters Bonner, Fewkes and Attenborough. Several pieces were sung by the Band of Hope, and a very happy evening was spent. At the close several persons signed the pledge.
