Salvation Army to open centre in Darfield

June 1927

Mexborough and Swinton Times June 10, 1927

It is the intention of the Salvation Army to open a centre in Darfield, which has hitherto been supplied from Wombwell.

In this new sphere a keen and alert young officer, Lt Samuel S Singleton, will devote his whole time.

The new mission began last weekend.

Lt Singleton had his first experience of Salvation Army work as a member of the International Cadet Band at Blackpool, of which town is a native. He is well-known in many Lancashire towns.

He believes there is a great field for Salvation Army work at Darfield.

There was a formal opening service on Sunday, music been supplied by the Wombwell band.

Lt Singleton has taken up residence at 110 Park Street, Wombwell
