Milton Lilbourne Board School
Through the kindness of Mrs REYNOLDS, Mr REDMAN, Mr WELLS and others, the children of the above school who stay to dinner, numbering 20 to 30, have been supplied with a cup of hot cocoa and milk every dinner hour. This has proved very beneficial to the poor children during the arctic winter we have been experiencing of late.

The Marlborough Times, February 23rd 1895:
The Parish Council held a special meeting on Monday evening last to receive the reports of the Allotments and Footpaths Committees. All the members were present except for the Rev. C. SWEET. The Chairman brought forward the Allotments Committee report and after some discussion it was resolved on the motion of Messrs SKINNER and VAUGHAN that the applicants for allotments sign an agreement to pay all the preliminary charges of valuation of land etc. before the council apply for land for allotments.
Footpaths: owing to the severity of the weather, the committee had not been able to inspect the footpaths, but several places were mentioned by the council that required attention, notably Milton Avenue , the public path to Easton and at Fyfield the public path to Pewsey ..... the council decided on the proposition of Messrs SKINNER and WAITE to make applications to the district council to repair public paths, the committee in the mean time to point out the places needing repair to the district council.

The Marlborough Times, March 9th 1895:
Parish Council.
The members met on Monday to transact the business of the council. The Chairman read the report of the Footpaths and Stiles Committee, and after considerable discussion it was decided on the proposition of Messrs DEADMAN and VAUGHAN that the report was to be sent in its entirety to the District Council to await their report thereon. The Chairman said he had two letters from Mrs PENNING declining to let a piece of her land for allotments. They would therefore have to apply for a piece of land elsewhere. Mr F. MARTIN proposed that application be made to Mr MERRIMAN asking him to let Little Salisbury Common meadow. This was seconded by Mr E. VAUGHAN. The Rev. C. SWEET proposed that the words "or any other suitable piece of land" be added to Mr MARTIN'S motion. This was agreed to, and the proposition as amended was carried nem con. Mr REYNOLDS brought forward the subject of defective drains near Mr REDMAN'S farm buildings, and proposed that the District Council be requested to re-open the watercourse to prevent the roads being flooded as had been the case since the drain had been stopped up. This was seconded by Mr O. SKINNER and carried. The Chairman gave an account of expenses occurred by the Council up to date, after which proceedings terminated.

The Marlborough Times, March 16th 1895:
Wesleyan Chapel
On Sunday evening last, a service of song entitled 'Water Mill Hollow' was given in this chapel. The connective readings were taken by Mr O. HOARE. Credit is due to the choir and also to Mr C. REYNOLDS who ably presided at the harmonium. The collection in aid of the chapel funds realized a satisfactory sum.

An acceptable gift.
The MARQUESS OF AILESBURY, as trustee to the Hoare Fund, as generously permitted Miss L.G. PENRUDDOCKE to have the selection of a handsome gift in books, chiefly Bibles, prayer books and books in accordance with the teaching of the Church of England from the Queen's Geographer for the library of the Labourers' Band of Hope. The gift is much appreciated and most acceptable.

A generous Scotch lady.
A correspondent writes: Miss L.G. PENRUDDOCKE has had the great pleasure of ordering and having distributed a number of blankets as gifts or on loan in her little district of Fyfield and in Milton Lilbourne. For these the recipients are indebted to Mrs Colonel DAVIDSON of Edinburgh who has, ever since her brother, Mr BUCHANAN, married Miss ANNA PENRUDDOCKE, taken a great interest in the village and more especially since the Labourers' Band of Hope was formed. 25 families have benefitted by this most seasonable gift.
