LORD MAYOR VISITS Night Refuge and Home

The Lord Mayor of London (Alderman Sir Harry Twyford, K.B.E.), who was accompanied by the City Marshal, Major J. Hulme Taylor, paid a visit to the Providence (Row) Night Refuge and Home in Crispin Street, Spitalfields, E.1, on Friday, November 4, at 5.30 p.m.

He was welcomed at the Refuge by the Reverend Mother, by Mr. George Belford, chairman of committee, Mr. J. S. R. Towsey, and Mr. J. R. Walker, secretary.

He was conducted round the Night Refuge and saw the dormitories, kitchens, bathrooms and dining-rooms.

The men and women were sitting down ready to commence their supper—fried fish, apple fritters, bread and butter and cocoa— and Sir Harry Twyford walked round and spoke to a number of the men.

The Refuge is for the homeless poor of all creeds and no charge is made.

The secretary is Mr. John R. Walker.
