Hall Committee.
The sixth annual meeting of the Taita Hall Committee was held June 10th, the chairman (Mr. F. S. Hewer) presiding.
There was a very good attendance, and great interest was displayed in the business before the meeting.
The report and balance sheet presented by the secretary (Mr. Pemberton), was considered entirely satisfactory, the retiring committee being complimented on the result of the year''s working.
The residents, expressed themselves as very pleased that the mortgage on the hall had been reduced by £100.
The assets were:- land and buildings, less depreciation, stood at £1120; furniture and fittings, £18O; cash in Bank £60/16/8; The only liability was the mortgage of £300.
The following committee was elected:— Messrs F. S. Hewer (chairman), W. Hutchison (deputy chairman), V. Pemberton (secretary), C. Alsop (treasurer) S. Peck, D. McArthur, E. Saunders, E. Hewer, F. Bartosh, F. Westbury, H. Mason, G. Braddock, J. Butler, P. Ferretti, Y. Wilson, E. F. Jones.
Mention was made of the serious illness of Mr. A. Gadsby, one of the trustees; also of their old friend Mr. Rubein King, one of the staunchest supporters of the Hall Committee. It was decided to send a letter of condolence to both of these gentlemen and convey the meeting''s best wishes for their speedy recovery.
At the conclusion of the business a most enjoyable time was spent in
dancing to music supplied by Mr. Wright who provided many fine selections on the electrical gramophone, to the great enjoyment of all present. The ladies excelled themselves with the delightful supper they provided and they well earned the vote of thanks which was accorded to them. Mr. Wright. was also warmly thanked for his services. In replying Mr. Wright said that he would only be too pleased to oblige at the local gatherings on any future occasion.

PARTY AT TAITA
A most enjoyable kitchen tea given by Mrs S. Peck was held in her home at Taita in honour of Miss Gwen Baylis, whose marriage to Mr B. J. Champness is to take place shortly. The couple received many beautiful and useful gifts. The rooms were artistically decorated with sweet peas, and a delicious home-made savoury supper was served. Dancing, interspersed with clever items, made the evening pass all too quickly. Mrs. Peck, who acted as hostess, wore olive green crepe and beige lace, and was assisted in her duties by Miss V. Peck in silver lame and mauve velvet and Mrs V. Peck in black crepe. The guest of honour looked charming in marina green crepe and was accompanied by her mother who wore floral crepe de chene.
