Cosgrove Jumble Sale

Wolverton Express 10th November 1916

A jumble sale, arranged by Mrs J Knight, Mr M Jelley and others was held in the old school on Saturday November 4th for the benefit of the Village Soldiers. Contributions of flour, groceries, fruit, clothing etc., were forthcoming from most of the inhabitants. The sale was opened by the Rev W Humbley, with a few very appropriate remarks. Mr M F Jelley acted as auctioneer for the grocery, fruit etc and made an excellent salesman. He was assisted by Mr J Knight, who took the sale of clothing etc, and with his usual jocular remarks, succeeded in persuading all present that they were securing the best bargains of a life time with the result that the little effort form this very patriotic village realized the very handsome sum of nearly £5.
