Anniversary celebrations
look to the future

CHIEF SECRETARY Colonel David Hinton and Territorial Secretary for Women's Minis­tries Colonel Sylvia Hinton led the weekend meetings at the culmination of the corps 125th anniversary year. They encour­aged the corps to take hold of the Holy Spirit within them to move into the future to further engage in mission.

During the Saturday meeting, which featured the band, songsters and John Ashworth at the piano, the Chief Sec­retary outlined developments within the United Kingdom Territory.

Before the Sunday evening meeting a buffet was arranged for all the volunteers and managers of the Burton and Uttoxeter Salvation Army Trading Company Ltd shops. There is close co-operation between the Burton charity shop and the corps because a significant number of soldiers help in the shop. All the volunteers were knowledged by the presentation of certificates by the CS as a measure of appreciation.

There was also a warm welcome given to three new adherent members, who had their first introduction to the Army through fellowship trips. The trips are organised on a monthly basis and attract many non-Slvationists. - K. A.
