Extract from the Cornishman – Thursday 30 November 1893
“A First-class Entertainment was given the Lizard reading-room Tuesday night under the management of Mr Barclay Hart. The hall and platform were tastefully decorated with flags and bunting, and the rector (Rev. C. S. Vyvyan) presided. The overture was played by Miss Ruby Hart and Mr Everme, and songs were sung by Mr Berry, Mr Theodore Hart, Miss E. Edwards, Miss Ruby Hart, Mr Spencer, and Mrs Avery. The comic songs of Mr Theodore Hart, were enthusiastically encored, whilst the singing of Miss Hart, Avery, and Miss Edwards was greatly admired. There was a good attendance, and the proceeds will be devoted to a fund being raised for the purpose of presenting the Lizard cricket-club with a pavillion.”
