 The 'Mercury' and the Home Front in WW1




(From April 26th 1919)

Mrs. Allright, who has been on the Arborfield and Barkham School's staff since 1884 and has been in charge of the Infant Department for many years, retired from school work at Easter.

On April 17th Miss E Tayler, one of the assistant teachers and in former days a pupil of Mrs. Allright's, presented her with a gold bracelet on behalf of the teachers and scholars. In doing so she referred to the affectionate regard in which Mrs. Allright is held by all who have been associated with her, whether as teachers or scholars.

The Rectors of Arborfield and Barkham and the headmaster, Mr. Mayward, bore testimony to the splendid work done by Mrs. Allright, and to the excellent moral and spiritual influence that she had exercised in a very happy way both in school and outside.


(From September 27th 1919)

Much regret is felt at the departure of Mrs. Allright, the former infants’ mistress at the school, who has taken a leading part in the work of the parish for many years as choir-mistress and Sunday-school teacher, and who will be much missed.
