29 January 1904: ‘Windsor Wesleyan Church: The musical portions of the various services in the Wesleyan Church, Alma Road, have long been noted for the bright and hearty rendering which they have ever met with, and no small credit in the matter is due to the energetic choirmaster and his loyal adherents. It was not surprising, therefore, that a large company of friends assembled in the schoolroom adjoining the sanctuary on Tuesday evening, when the choir gave a cantata entitled “The Lion of Judah”. The chair was taken by the Rev. W. Spiers, M.A., superintendent minister, who has evinced more than ordinary interest in the welfare of the choristers during the time of his sojourn in this district. After a brief address, urging upon his hearers the duty and obligation of the congregation and friends due to the members of the choir for their services during the year, the rev. gentleman proceeded to compare the state of the choir now with what it was some time ago. The programme of the evening was then proceeded with. Mrs Spiers (pianist) and Mr Harris (organist) did full justice to the opening march, and much of the success of the evening’s entertainment was due to the magnificent manner in which they accompanied the various items. The opening piece of vocal music was a chorus, “We sing Emmanuel”, with solos by Miss Edwards (treble), Mr Reeves (tenor) and Mr Sloane (bass). Miss L. Young (treble) and Mr J. W. Bell (bass) took the duet, “While shepherds watch”, followed by a full chorus. Mr J. and Miss Harris then gave an acceptable duet in “Mortals awake”. Miss Edwards, who undoubtedly possesses a rich treble voice, was heard to great advantage in her various efforts throughout the performance, but really excelled herself in dealing with the solo, “Mary’s joy”. She quite charmed the assembly by her superb singing, especially when one considers the number of trained voices there are in this neighbourhood. The ladies were then conspicuous in giving full justice to a chorus in unison. The quartette, “Christ in the temple”, was followed by one of the gems of the cantata, a bass solo, “Christ’s baptism”, with which Mr Sloane added another success to his former achievements. The accompanists having again exhibited their skill on their respective instruments in the “Pastoral March”, Mr C. Pascoe was responsible for the solo, “Christ’s Mission”. Mr Pascoe had full command of his rich, mellow voice, and the audience showed its approval of his performance in a marked manner. This was, however, but a forecast of better things to follow, and the manner in which the next part was given would have done credit to many a better known group of musicians. The contralto solos throughout were in the capable hands of Miss Tucker, yet without question her best accomplishment was in dealing with the solo, “Christ Heals the Sick”. Not less creditable was Miss Gambrill’s soprano rendering of the same selection, and Mr Sloan was also prominent in this item. The chorus “Thrice Blessed Lord” was most notable for the well-balanced manner of its rendering. The duet, “Bethany” (by Misses Gambrill and Tucker), was followed by a quartette, “Kedron”. This was undoubtedly the gem of the collection, and the parts were well sustained by the Misses L. Young, Tucker and Messrs J. Harris and F. Attride. “The Crucifixion” was very effectively sung by the whole choir, and formed a suitable and pathetic contrast to the jubilant tones of the well-known Easter hymn, which followed immediately after. A further quartette having been carefully gone through, the finest chorus of the cantata, “Lion of Judah”, was rendered, and the admirable way in which this was performed reflected the greatest credit in those responsible for the training of the voices. The concluding piece, “Jubilee Song”, was a fitting termination to the musical effort of the evening, and the audience was not slow to show its approval. We understand that the collection, which was taken in aid of the choir funds, exceeded all expectations. Altogether the whole performance was a distinct success, and doubtless the choir will look forward with sanguine hopes to the further effort intended to be made about Easter-tide.’

8 February 1908: St Augustine’s Petty Sessions: Saturday – Saturday – Chartham: Albert Reeves, a soldier in the 7th Dragoon Guards, was charged with snaring rabbits at Chartham. – Edward Packman, gamekeeper to the executors of the late Mr H. D. Barnes, at Chartham, said he watched defendant go and take a rabbit out of the snare, and when he told him to take up any other snares he had set, defendant went straight to a wire and took it up. – Defendant said the gamekeeper pointed out the snare to him and asked him to take it up, otherwise he should not have done so. – The Bench considered there was not sufficient evidence to convict defendant, although the case was a suspicious one.
