Biography

Farewell and Presentation.
An enjoyable evening was spent in the Taita Hall on Wednesday, when the church members and friends bade farewell to the Rev. H. V. C. Reynolds, who is leaving shortly to take up missionary work in Melanesia. Community singing was led by Mr. Kempthorne and Miss Brooks. Fancy dancing items by K. and V. Colson, N. August, and N. Peck were enjoyed, as also were those given by Mr. House and T. Gadsby. An excellent supper was handed round, and dancing and games were indulged in. Mr. Kempthorne, on behalf of the parishioners, presented Mr. Reynolds with a watch, suitably engraved. Mr. Reynolds thanked those present, and said it had given him great pleasure to minister among the people of Taita. Mr. Fry, introduced Mr. Neild, who was heartily welcomed. The committee added their thanks to all who helped to make the function a success.
