15 June 1894: Hoylake Sailing Club. The first race of the season for the C class (decked yachts) came off on Saturday last. The starters were:- Irene, Mr C. H. Lancaster, scratch: Bedouin, Mr Fred Evans, 1 minute; Doris, Mr J. R. G. Langdow, 3 minutes; Kittiwake, Mr C. and J. Ridchalgh [sic]; Daphne, Mr J. Nelson Davies, 6½ minutes; Imp, Mr J. Halton Hall, 8 minutes; Gaiety Girl, Mr Fenner, 8 minutes. The two latter ships are the new Southport ¾-raters, designed by Mr W. Scott Hayward. The course was the outside one of about 11 miles. They were started at 2.30 with a nice light breeze about N.W., and Irene, determined to lose no time in wiping off her penalties, was first across the line, with Imp second and Doris last, a somewhat straggling start. It was a broad reach at R 3 Red buoy, and a close hand to Spencer Spit, then a run to L 1. Irene walked away all the time, and Doris, for the first time in her life, found herself beating Bedouin, while the yawl Daphne was hanging on to Kittiwake well. The two little raters were hopelessly out of it, but of the two Imp was doing best. There was no change in positions, Irene winning first prize and Doris second.

August 1928: Holy Cross Mission Church: I must express the gratitude of Holy Cross for the answer to the appeal last month for someone to pay for the cost of keeping the Sanctuary Lamp permanently lighted.

So in future any money placed in the box devoted to ‘Special Objects’ will be used for the perpetual Light.
