Appeal on behalf of the Restoration Fund of St. -Nicholas-at-Wade Church , Kent, by Lord Bridges, G.C.B., G.C.v.O.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Lord Bridges, [address removed]
The parish church of St. Nicholas-at-Wade and Sarre was built in the middle of the twelfth century. It has many interesting features including Norman work, especially in the bays of the south aisle. The state of repair of the church was recently found to be such that immediate steps had to be taken to deal with the damage caused by death-watch beetle to practically all the main timbers in the tower and roof; the windows also had to be re-glazed and releaded. £ 2,000 is needed to complete the cost of restoration.

2 — ' The Shadow Lengthens '
Produced by Martyn C. Webster :
On the day that the Indian Diamond first cast its shadow over the Verinder family house in Yorkshire, two surprising things happened. Penelope, the daughter of Gabriel Betteredge the family retainer, came across three strolling Indians in the lane by the house, and Franklin Blake arrived from London before he was expected, bringing with him the moonstone left to Rachel Verinder by his uncle John Herncastle.
In search of the maid, Rosanna Spear-man, Gabriel Betteredge had gone to the dreaded Shivering Sand, and it was here that Franklin Blake found him and perturbed the old retainer by his questions.
