Telephone Exchange
We understand that a new telephone exchange will be opened within the next week or two to include Bromesberrow and district, also work is now in hand to introduce a direct line to Colwall, which will do away with the absurdity now existing of having to telephone to Colwall via Worcester. Further improvements are coming along in new trunk lines to both Hereford and Gloucester. Town Crier

Samuel AVERALL, aged 70, was admitted to the Ledbury Hospital on Wednesday suffering from severe injuries through being knocked down by a cyclist while proceeding to his home at Bromsberrow Heath. He sustained a broken arm and injuries to one of his hands. He managed to reach home however, and a doctor was summoned. He was subsequently removed to the Ledbury Hospital, where he is progressing as well as can be expected.
