Seasonal Gifts

The children who work on the sands with sand-bridges and seats during the season have recently been the recipients of a large number of woolen articles, such as scarfs, cuffs, and gloves, kindly given them by Mrs. F S Shilcock, of Glenhurst, Bourne, Lincolnshire, who also sent a number to them last winter.

The same lady has also presented the coxswain of the lifeboat (Mr. T Smalley) with a woolen helmet.

Most of the articles were worked by Mrs. Shilcock’s little niece, who also made them of the former occasion.
