8 February 1908: St Augustine’s Petty Sessions: Saturday – Saturday – Herne: Frederick George Gray, the licensee of the Lower Red Lion, Herne, was summoned with selling drink to one Frederick Cox, while in a drunken condition on January 24. – Mr R. M. Mercer represented the defendant, who pleaded ‘Not Guilty’. – P. C. Barham stated that on the 24th of last month he was on duty in Herne Street about 9 p.m., when he saw a man named Fred Cox come from the direction of Herne Common. When passing witness in Herne Street witness noticed he was the worse for drink. Witness allowed him to go on as he was quiet, but when he came to the Lower Red Lion he entered. Witness then went after him and followed him inside, when he heard prisoner calling for two-penny worth of whiskey. He did not see Cox served, and Cox went through into the tap room as soon as he saw witness enter the house. Witness followed him into the tap room where he saw the landlord and a number of others, and he drew the landlord’s attention to Cox and told him not to serve him as the man had had enough to drink. Witness then left the house and stayed in the street until 10 p.m. when he saw a number of men leave the house. About 10.5 p.m. Cox came staggering through the doorway carrying two quart bottles of ale. He started going up the street and had not gone far before he commenced using bad language. Witness went after him, and caught him up about eighty yards from the public-house. He took Cox into custody for being drunk and disorderly. Cox stood the two bottles down in the street and became very violent. Witness closed with him, and they both fell to the ground. . He subsequently got Cox to Herne Bay and he was brought before the magistrates the next day. On Sunday evening, the 26th, at 7.30 p.m., he went with Sergeant Thomas to see Gray and told him Cox had made a statement to him, and he read the statement to him. It was made by Cox on the way to the Canterbury Police Court. Cox said “I am sorry. I know I had too much to drink. I was not served with any whisky, but I said to the landlord ‘As I cannot have any drink myself give that man a pint (meaning Carswell), whom I treated. I only had two bottles of ale to take home.” In reply to this Mr Gray said “I served Cox with two bottles of beer to take home for supper. He did not treat anyone or have any drink in my house.” – Sergeant Thomas corroborated as to the interview with Gray  –  Mr Mercer said he only wished to make one observation before calling his evidence, which he thought would conclusively prove the defendant’s innocence, and that was to ask their Worships to disabuse their minds entirely of the fact that Cox pleaded ‘Guilty’ to being drunk and disorderly. When he appeared before the Magistrates  Cox was wishing to join his ship, which sailed almost at once, and had he asked for adjournment to establish his innocence of the charge he must have lost his ship and voyage. Therefore he pleaded guilty to avoid the inconvenience of delay  –  Defendant in the witness box stated that he had been the licensee of the house in question for twelve months. Cox came into his house on the night in question about five minutes to ten. Witness was in the tap-room with eight or ten customers. Cox was well-known to him, and had been bred and born in Herne Street. They said “Good evening” to each other, Carswell offering Cox his glass of beer. The constable entered the house and said “Don’t give that man a drink; he has had enough.” Cox turned to P.C. Barham and said “I am not drunk,” and he appealed to those present, who said that if Cox was drunk they were all drunk. The constable then went out and round to the back, where he saw witness’s wife and sister. The sister called witness through, and there he found Barham, who said “I should not have followed him in here only he has been insulting people up the street.” When the constable and the sargeant came on the subsequent date he told them Cox’s statement was incorrect in regard to Cox’s treating Carswell.  –  Emily Cobbett, licensee of the First and Last, said that on the evening in question Cox was at her house. He came in at 9.30 and asked for a quart of beer, with which she served him. He shared the drink with others, and was perfectly sober. – Several other witnesses were called, who stated that Cox was sober. The Chairman (Mr F. H. Wilbee), after the Bench had briefly consulted on the case, said: I should like to say that for any trouble or expense that the defendant has been put to in this case he has only himself to thank. It was entirely his own fault, and his conduct was very unwise. The majority of the Bench consider he is ‘Not Guilty’, however, and the case is dismissed.

July 1939: Church Union: The Annual Festival of the diocesan branch of the Church Union was held at Woodbridge on Whit Monday, and was attended by many who came from far distances in the diocese as well as by some of our own people. The service in church was most appealing and devotional, the Reverend J. Band, rector of Bawdsey, being the celebrant, Canon Powell, vicar of St Bartholomew’s, Ipswich, being deacon, while the sub-deacon was the Reverend G. L. Manson, rector of Shipmeadow. The sermon was preached by the Reverend H. Dobson, rector of Huntingfield, and the organist was the Reverend W. Thomas, of Needham Market. We are hoping more members will join our own Woodbridge branch, of which Mr John Postle is secretary.
