Town Topics: Reluctant governments seem determined to maintain the burdens on the backs of the people to the last possible moment. Bleak House has been our lot for years. We reasonably expect a little more comfort now.

Also in the news: Exeter Road Infants’ School held a harvest service on Wednesday afternoon. The harvest loaf, in the form on a sheaf of corn, was made by Mr Griffiths.

Advert: Mitchell’s have lovely pineapple cream rolls in their window today. Only 1/6 each!
