St. Joseph's, Bridgwater
FREE MILK AND MEDICAL SERVICES REQUESTED An application has been received by the Bridgwater Borough Education Committee for the provision of free milk to the children attending St. Joseph's School, or a supply of milk at reduced rates, and also for benefit from the school medical services provided by the local education authority for children attending the borough elementary schools. The Town Clerk has written to the Board of Education on the matter, and the Committee has decided to await the Board's reply. The school was only started a few months ago, and is staffed by nuns from the Convent of the Holy Rosary.
