Appeal on behalf of Caxton House Settlement, by Peter Brough
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
Caxton House Settlement is the result of the combined efforts of a group of social workers and clergy. Through their initiative a survey of part of the neighbourhood of Islington was undertaken in 1943, and the report clearly revealed the need for establishing a Residential Settlement. With an initial donation of £2 Is. 8d. an appeal for funds was launched, and in January 1944 Caxton House opened its doors.
The Settlement is intter-denominational, open to those of all ages who need friendliness, encouragement, and help. An active Youth Club caters for the young people, and other activities are organised for children, parents, and grandparents.
Apart from a grant from public funds towards the expenses of the youth work, and small subscriptions from members of the various clubs, the Settlement relies entirely upon voluntary support.

Episode 11
Produced by Norman Wright
Devastated by the news that Violet Effingham has, after all, become engaged to Lord Ohiltern, Phineas has made up his mind to join his friend Mr. Monk in his battle for the oppressed Irish smallholders, although this may entail Phineas's resignation from his under-secretaryship.
The Earl of Brentford has found out about the duel, and in his anger has told Phineas that their friendship must be at an end. Lady Laura, accused by her husband of being Phineas's mistress, has left him and gone back to live with her father. And Violet Effingham has now broken off her engagement to Chitern, who, despiite his good fortune, has been proving as intractable as ever.
