Wickens presided over the fir-sl meeting, and after explaining that the festival was not a mere money-making affair, but was the outcome of a steady and persistent voluntary effort to wipe off an old debt, which was being done at the rate of £ 70 a year, he put in a strong plea for more voluntaryism in the churches and less bazaar and concert.
