1893: The Royal Wedding

THE ROYAL WEDDING. – A tea for the people of Tyneham was given at Warbarrow by the Rev. J. Bond, of Tyneham House, to celebrate the wedding of the Duke of York. At the same time and place Mr. N. Bond, of Grange, gave a tea to the children of Holme, Grange and Steeple, and to such of the older people as could come. The children were driven over in waggons, and at once began to make the most of their time by bathing, going in the boats provided, and other seaside pleasures. At four o’clock the children were summoned to their tea, which was prepared just in front of the Coastguards’ houses, the scene being enlivened by flags, some of which had been hoisted by the Coastguardsmen, while others, which had been brought by the children in procession were now planted in the grounds at the top of the green. When the children’s tea was over, the elder folks gathered round and enjoyed the plentiful supply of good cheer. Mr. Bennett‘s well-known cakes and bread being as good as ever, thorough justice was done to them.  Altogether more than three hundred persons were thus entertained. Various races and sports were then improvised, conducted by Messrs. Chilcott, Nineham, Ogle, &c., and the onlookers seemed much interested, and applauded loudly. A concertina being forthcoming, some of the party were soon dancing, and the evening was so still that the music was sufficient to enable the dancers to keep step. About eight o’clock, as the more distant folk were preparing to leave, the Rector suggested that “God save the Queen” should be sung, which was done heartily without accompaniment. Then three cheers for Her Majesty were given with a will, led off by Mr. Ward, the officer in charge. Three more for the Duke of York and three for the Duchess followed. After that three for “Our entertainers,” the two Messrs. Bond, were enthusiastically given, and three more for the Rev. Canon and Mrs. Wordsworth and Mr. and Mrs. Filliter. The Rector responded by calling for three cheers for Mr. Ward and the Coastguards generally, who so greatly contributed to the success of the entertainment. After this dancing and races went on again, as long as the light lasted. The feature of the evening was the extreme good temper of the company, even the losers of the races coming in with a broad grin, and joining in the laugh at the good-humoured jibes bestowed on the laggards. Altogether it was a most delightful gathering, the weather perfect, the little bay looking at its best, and everyone on good terms with themselves and their neighbours. The Duke of York’s wedding day will long be remembered in Tyneham, where everyone wishes him and his fair bride all possible joy and blessing.
