One Hundred Years Ago: 8th September 1920

Afternoon Treat for the Children of Broadway

During the afternoon of Tuesday 8th September 1920, the annual treat given to the children attending Broadway Council Schools took place in the village. The children assembled at the schools, the Scouts leading the boys and the Girl Guides leading the girls. The children walked to church where a short service was held, led by Reverent F. Lambert, Minister of Broadway’s Congregational Church.

After the church service the children marched to the field at Top Farm, Bibsworth Lane, kindly lent by Mrs Wells , where tea was waiting for them. After tea the children participated in games until dusk.
