Abstract Of Annual Report.
The report contained a full statement of the work of the society for the year. It stated that in some measure it had been an eventful one, and that the present position of the society was about an average one, but with some promises for the future, which, if fulfilled, would assist and help the society to increase its usefulness, and likewise improve the members' roll, which now contains sixty names. The trustees have held nine ordinary meetings, which have been well attended. The library is fairly well used, and the reading-room is found very useful by the general public, and is much availed of in the evenings, being well supplied with papers. A vote of thanks was recorded to those proprietors who donate papers, likewise to the Borough Council for its subsidy.
The balance-sheet showed—Receipts, £106 3s. 3d.; expenditure, £99 3s. 3d., leaving a credit balance of £7.
