Woodford Past

The Northampton Mercury reported that on the Saturday before Christmas 1891, “Miss Plevins of Woodford House invited all the members of the Church Sunday School, about 230 in number, to see a Christmas tree, held in the Infant School. Each Child received a present, also oranges and sweets. Crackers were distributed afterwards.”

And similarly in 1914 during the First World War, “On Saturday Afternoon a tea and Christmas tree was arranged by members of the St John Ambulance in the Temperance Hall for the children whose fathers are serving their king and country and the children of widows of the village. The tree which looked very handsome was lent by Mrs Plevins of Woodford House and the decorations for the tree by Mr Charlton. Afterwards tea games etc., were enjoyed by the children and later in the evening Mr Cartledge, dressed as Father Christmas handed the presents from the tree to the ladies who gave them to the children…..Proceedings closed with the singing of the National Anthem”
