CHARITY FOR THE POOR.

A poor's fund for the parish was established by private donation before 1808. In the late 1880s the endowment was £82 4s. 1d. stock and the income £1 4s. 8d., spent on coals. A Scheme of 1890 allowed the income to be spent on subscriptions to benefit clubs or for sick poor. It was thereafter seldom applied; a Scheme of 1973 united the arrears, then £338, with the capital and allowed the income, then £9, to be spent in cash. (fn. 33)
