    • Paper clipping Rugby Club looking for new ground. Members of the Mendip Rugby Club will be looking for a new ground to take the place of the one they now use at the Mendip Hospital, which is to be sold. They were asked to do this last night (Wednesday) by the club's secretary, Mr. R. Sheldon, at the annual meeting held at the Fountain Inn. Mr. Sheldon said that although planning permission had been turned down for the land on which their field was situated, it was possible that their ground would be in a lot of about 16 acres, which would sell for around £200 an acre, and so be out of reach of the club financially. Mr. Sheldon said that if all else failed they could use the ground at Slab House, which had previously been used by the club. He appealed to everyone to keep their eyes open for a piece of land, ideally about three acres and level, that they could buy, with help from the R.F.U. The meeting was also rather a sad occasion for the members. Their chairman, Mr. R.B. Culbertson announced his intention to resign. He said it was with regret that he resigned, but he did so owing to his deafness. "The time has come for a younger and more active man to take over, especially as the St. Thomas' team have joined us," he said. Team Spirit. He expressed the hope that the older members of the club would give every help possible to the St. Thomas team and teach them to play the game in the right spirit. He said that when he first became chairman, there were many members who wanted to disband the club. In his opinion this was because there was a lack of team spirit. "No team can carry on without team spirit," he said. Year by year, since then, they have done better and better, he said. This was due to the tremendous feeling of team spirit that now existed in the club. Mr Culbertson thanked evryone for all the help they had given him in his years of office and wished the club the best of luck for the future. Dr. W.E.W. Bridger, the clubs' President, said they could not let the occasion pass without a token of appreciation to Mr. Culbertson in a tangible form. A handsome silver tankard, which will later be inscribed, was presented to Mr. Culbertson. A fuller report of the meeting will appear next week.
    • After his wife Violet fell down some stairs in Wells, Robert & Violet sold Peace Close and moved to the East Hill Hotel, Hill Brow, Liss, Hampshire.
    • Died at Royal Treloar Hospital, Alton, Hampshire from cancer.
