3rd May 1945
Bitterly cold, and rain at times, very overcast and dark. Edwards came, looking worse than ever.
Finished all the notices for the meeting, and Girling came in with the balance sheet, which is a poor piece of work and shows a very unhealthy position. Grants from Borough and County will be our only hope. Must work on this. Don't like W.R. Girling.
Out after tea delivering notices. The sun was a hazy golden ball behind high thin clouds, and two or three old men and old women were standing by the churchyard railings at the end of Norfolk Street, where they always stand, gossiping in harsh voices. Had to go along
Road, past the circus, but no sign of the gypsy
and the Pekinese.
The ARP men in the basement all day, definitely moving. Almost impossible to believe.
