West Hallam
Cow Club — The eighth annual meeting and dinner of the West Hallam Cow Club, was held at the house of Mr. T. Brown, the White Hart Inn, on Tuesday in Easter week. Since the commencement of this society, which is purely a cottage insurance society, it has been fortunate to be very prosperous, and it has relieved many poor cottagers in case of losses, that would have had to be dependent upon the ‘benevolent’ to make up their losses.— On the Wednesday, a similar society dined at Mrs. Hudson's, the Newdigate Arms, West Hallam. This society has prospered well for many years, and we believe has done great good.

Among the licenses the removal of which was confirmed by the Derbyshire Licensing Committee at a meeting at Derby to-day (Wednesday) was that of the Newdigate Arms, West Hallam, held by Joseph Sinfield. It was explained that coal mining operations had rendered the present building dangerous to live in, hence the necessity for transfer to other premises, the site of which had been selected with a view securing freedom from the same trouble.
