CONCERT. On Tuesday evening, January 31, a capital concert was given in the Board School of his village, the proceeds being in aid of the Village Cricket Club. The large room was crowded, amongst those present being Mrs. Fitzroy (YardleyGobion), the Rev J. Harkness (vicar), Mrs. Grant, Miss Heneage, Mr. and Mrs. C. Whiting , Mr. J. and Miss Pike, Mr. Pain, Miss Linnell, Mr. Linnell, the Misses Capell (Passenham), Mr. and Mrs. G. Whiting (Stoke Goldington), Miss Greave (Haversham), Mr. G. Norman and Mr. H. Norman, Mrs. and Miss Masterman (Wolverton), &c. The programme was one of great variety, being contributed to by friends from Wolverton, Roade, Passenham, Newport Pagnell, &c. and included songs, quartettes, banjo duets, a cleverly acted dramatic sketch by the Misses Capell, and perhaps most popular of all, Mr. G. Salmons, of Newport Pagnell, brought over his gramophone, and the audience were highly amused with conversations, musical pieces, whistling solos, &c. produced by the instrument. With the talent on the programme something of a first-rate order was expected, and in this the audience were not disappointed, from the start to finish everything going off with éclat. Dr. Rutherford, Messrs. Middleton and Freshwater acted with ability as accompanists. The proceed are expected to realise a substantial sum for the cricket club, and to Mr. J. Pike and Mr. C. Whiting great credit is due for organising such an entertaining evening for the villagers.
