Zeppelins and Spring Cleaning

Haynes Church, c.1920 [Z1130/56]

Monday 17th April 1916: The Vicar of Haynes, Rev. W. C. Browne, has been fined ten shillings for failing to subdue a light in his house on April 6th. He explained that they had not been able to put up a blind because they were spring cleaning. The Chairman provoked amusement by pointing out that Zeppelins did not take any account of spring cleaning.
