On Friday last members of the above choir had their annual outing, to Netherwasdale. The commodious char-a-banc of the Whitehaven Motor Co, was requisitioned, and proved a valuable adjunct to the day’s plerasure.
The party set out at 9-30 and after a fine run arrived at The Strands Hotel at 11-30. A splendid hot lunch was partaken of under the supervision of Mrs. SMITH, the proprietress. The lake was visited in the course of the afternoon, and famous Scree echo was found to be in excellent working order. Here the party grouped themselves, and after singing several short selections, were photographed by an enthusiastic lady member of the party.
Returning to the hotel, the char-a-banc was again boarded and proceeded vis Santon Bridge and Irton to Holmrook, where tea was prepared. Mrs. WILSON of Lutwidge Arms, was the caterer and her daughter, Mrs. J. KERR, made an admirable hostess.
After a strenuous but most enjoyable round of games by the river, the party sang several hymns at the hotel, and started for home at 9 p.m., reaching Whitehaven shortly after ten p.m. The arrangements were in the capable hands of the organist and choirmaster of the church, Mr. E. MARTINDALE. The comfort and convenience of the fine motor char-a-banc was commented on, and coupled with the courtesy of Mr. COWIN, who accompanied the trip, and Mr. HARRIS, the chauffeur, was greatly appreciated.
