Bideford Entertainments Ltd, Strand Cinema and Palace Theatre, Bideford Ltd are repeating their kindness of last year and are giving the whole accommodation of both houses on the morning of December 20th and 24th for this purpose.

The home towns have not forgotten their children evacuated here and to encourage children to remain in reception areas the L.C.C., Metropolitan Boroughs, Croydon, Bristol and Plymouth are all sending financial help for Christmas treats.  The local teachers have generously accepted responsibility for raising funds for the Devon children so that native and evacuees will have a combined treat in each school.
