Shop Outing - An outing was arranged by the employees of Messrs. Robinson and Son, Gordon-road, on Saturday, Bedford being chosen as the rendezvous. The company which numbered about 30, started their journey at 8.30a.m., stopping for a brief period at Sharnbrook, then on through Felmersham to Pavenham, where a halt was made for lunch. The party broke up into groups on arrival at Bedford, and enjoyed themselves sight-seeing, boating, etc. The return journey commenced at 9.30p.m. A halt was made at Milton, and the company reached home about midnight.
