HOCKEY CLUB DANCE.
The Upper Hutt Warriors Hockey Club held a very success- ful dance on Thursday evening- last at the Majestic Theatre. Al- though the weather was anything but pleasant quite a large num- ber of dancers braved the ele- ments, including a party- from Lower Plutt and Petone. The music was supplied by the Brougham Street Orchestra, but did not come up to expectations for a city orchestra. Mr. W. Prater carried out the duties of M.C. very efficiently and kept things moving. ■ The Committee consisted of "Messrs. L. Clarke, W. Frater, L. McMahon; R. Pearce- • and R. Clyde. Valuable assistance w;ts also given by Messrs. M. Barclay, K. Walls and J. ■ Williams. A very dainty supper was handed around during the even- ing and special thanks are due to Mesdames J. Clark, T. Brown, Barclay, Pearce and A. Watson, the ladies' committee. Among those present were Mes- dames McDowell and Burton, Misses A. Smith, I. Goodwin, C. and N. Connolly, M. O'Flaherty, N. Pritchard, P.

UPPER HUTT SCHOOL.
The meeting convened on Tues- day night last by the School Com- mittee to discuss proposals to hold similar functions to those held at the School Jubilee was poorly attended, there, being less than a dozen people present. After the Chairman of the Com- mittee, Mr. A. E. Robinson, had explained to .those present the suggested 'idea, it was. decided that the proposal be dropped as it was evident by the non-attend- ance of ex-pupils and others that their support was not forthcom- ing. ; ■■■~'.•'■-.■'■

UPPER HUTT WARRIORS HOCKEY CLUB. Held Over from last week [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 24 August 1939
UPPER HUTT WARRIORS HOCKEY CLUB.
Held Over from last week
The-First Division were very un- lucky to lose to Karori, 5-4. War- riors : had the better of the game and Should have had a very com- fortable win, but; for injuries- to•' several members. Sutherland played a solid game, at left back, and Louper, Grigg, Crawley , Sewell, forwards, worked' well to- gether. Watson did not play 'as well as usual, although he was unlucky not to score on three oc- casions. Several good movements were spoilt through off-side play. Murray, right, back, was outstand- ing, breaking up several danger- ous attacks. McDowell played his usual reliable game at left half. McMahon, in goal, brougiit off some good saves, and it was not • his fault Karori won. The loss of this game 'will prob- ably mean -the loss -of the cham- pionship to this team, as they are now four points down.- The Second Division was . also unlucky not to win, going down to Knox Rangers, 3-2. They still have a fair chance i...
BANDSTAND FROM HOSPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 24 August 1939
BANDSTAND FROM HOSPITAL.
We have been informed •by Councillor Purvis that the-Band- stand at the Hospital grounds was offered to the Upper .Hutt Bor- ough . Council some months ago. Mr. Purvis states that he inform- ed the' Council at the time, but up to the present, nothing had been done officially. ' The Hospital authorities agreed to dismantle the Bandstand ready to be taken away, and the cost to. the local 'authority would only be the transport, and. ;re : er.ection. It is hoped the" Council take the opportunity' '.'of securing such a bargain, and thanks is due ; to Councillor Purvis for his fore- sight on'behalf of the Borough.
