Let us congratulate the teams that had such marvellous success at the recent competition held at Wanganui. It is the first time a team from H.B. has competed in the competitions and it is the first time a Hastings team has won any competitions outside this district.
However, all involved in this event, thoroughly enjoyed themselves over the weekend. The main feature of the entertainment being a Presentation Social at the Wanganui Headquarters.

Mrs Willy of Wanganui held a wonderful Morning Tea Party in her Rose Gardens after which the teams left for home. The car in the rear of the group stayed and collected a trophy and then went on to Palmerston North where they paid a visit on Ex-Cadet Ray now a Policeman there.
Thus they were last home but were lucky enough to meet one of the advance party and to be told about the gathering at Superintendent Burfield’s house that evening.
There the fun began, eating, singing, eating sweets, dancing, sweets, talk, soft drink, sweets, dancing, sweets, dancing, supper.
Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Burfield for a wonderful evening.
CHAPERONE TOO –
The teams were fortunate in having Mrs Morgan as their chaperone.
This is quite an event for her as she had three of her children competing in the teams.
Everyone is very grateful to Mrs. Morgan for her good work.
Thanks are also expressed to the trainers of the teams, Miss Glover, Mr. Richards, Mr. Burfield and Mr. Beckett for their good work. Without this the teams would have got nowhere.
