Cosgrove Fete 1920

Wolverton Express 13th August 1920

A pretty fete was held in the grounds of Cosgrove Priory on Saturday by members of the Mothers’ Union. Mr and Mrs Atkinson lent the grounds, and Mrs Atkinson, as President of the Union, took a great interest in the effort, which was successful. Its object was to collect funds, to purchase material for the Mothers’ Work Class, which is held during the winter months. The Cosgrove Excelsior Band played selections and dance music during the evening. The stalls and other shows included needlework, Mesdames Whiting, Dickens and Buckell; fruit and vegetables, Mesdames Lovesey and Abel; bowls, Miss Atkinson; golf, Miss W Atkinson; skittles, Mr Lovesey; Aunt Sally and Hoopla, Mr Green; Mrs Butcher (secretary), and Mrs Whiting (treasurer). About £30 was realised.
