Croydon’s Weekly Standard, May 10th 1879

EVENING SCHOOL. The following is the report of Mr. H. Martin, Her Majesty’s assistant inspector for the district, April, 1879. “This little school is an excellent one. The order and discipline are admirable, and the results of the examinations are highly creditable.” The above must be equally pleasing to the teacher, Mrs. Town, and to the members of the evening school. The latter have shown their gratitude for her exertions on their behalf, by the presentation of a handsome writing desk, which bears the inscription, “From the Castlethorpe evening scholars, to Mrs. F. Town, April, 1879.”
