Rushden Echo, 14th March 1924, transcribed by Kay Collins

Caretaker—About 80 applications were received for the position of caretaker of the Rushden Co-operative Hall, rendered vacant by the death of Mr George Cook. At a special meeting of the General Committee of the society on Tuesday, all the applications were given careful consideration, and six of the applicants were invited to attend for interviews. Mr J W Hill, of Co-operative-row, was appointed. The new caretaker was formerly in the employ of the society, having been for a year or two in the coal department, which he left for a change of occupation.
