THE TAKING OVER BY THE CHURCH OF THE PARISH HALL. Captain Whall stated be had obtained advice with regard to the Parish Hall and its ownership, and he had gathered that unless the hall was taken over by the church the Parish Council, which would come into force in November next; could do so. The building at present was not under the church, but in the hands of trustees, and that being so, either the church should take charge of it, or the Parish Council would. There was a debt remaining of about AIOO, and he (Captain Whall) did not intend to continue his responsibility in the matter after November, because he saw no signs of any action being taken. -Mr Robinson considered something would be done before November, for, now that the matter had been ventilated, he thought the churchwardens and sidesmen could take the question into con- sideration.—The Chairman said he could not see any just grounds for the Parish Council taking the hall over.—Mr Johnson said the building was erected as a Sunday school, and not as a parish hall, and merely out of courtesy parish meetings were allowed to be held therein.—Captain Whall remarked it could not be a Sunday school unless the church took it over.—Mr Johnson If the trustees give up their responsibility, there are other gentlemen who would fill their places.-The Chairman thanked Captain Wball for bringing the matter forward, and the discussion dropped, it being understood that the position would be con- sidered by the church authorities.
