Farewell Cheque for Stationmaster
A pleasing presentation took place at the Savoy Kinema, when Mr George Langridge, who recently retired from the position of stationmaster of the Hayling island railway Station after 32 years, was handed a cheque for £60, subscribed for by the residents of the Island.
The presentation was made by Mr F Blake, Chairman of the Portsmouth Water Company. Mr Langridge in thanking his friends, said that he would be the last stationmaster at Hayling, as under the economy scheme the office would cease, the line being placed under the Havant control.
