|Derby Mercury: Wed 23 October 1877
A temperance meeting was held in the new Infants schoolroom in the “Carr” on Thursday evening last. The meeting was addressed by the vicar, and the Rev. Mr Smith, lately curate at Matlock Bath, gave a reading.
The Wesleyan Methodists held a missionary meeting in their chapel on the evening of the 23rd. The attendance was very small. The Rev. Drummond, one of the circuit ministers, and Mr Selvey, a Wesleyan student, at present allocated at Belper, addressed the meeting. The chairman was Mr John Storer, a local preacher of the place.
The rather imposing building now in course of erection by the Baptists seemed to have received an increased fillip towards completion lately. We notice a popular lecture announced to be delivered this week in aid of the building fund, the lecturer being the Rev. W. Jamieson, of Riddings.
The even more ecclesiastical looking building now in course of erection in the “Carr” under the auspices of the Primitive Methodists, is being pushed on with spirit.
