Rechabites’ Outing

From a newspaper article of 30th July, 1910


The fifth annual outing of the Leonard-road, Lonesome (Mitcham) Juvenile Rechabites was held on Saturday. A trip was made to Riddlesdown by special electric car. The children availed themselves of the amusements provided by the swings, donkey rides, and the model railway. There was an excellent tea at four o’clock in the pavilion, to which ample justice was done. The adults’ tea followed, after which racing and skipping competitions were organised. Home was reached about 9.15 p.m., all having spent a very happy and enjoyable time.
