The card game whist has seen various eras of popularity with the popular ‘whist drives’. Back in 1914 it was a good way to raise funds.

“Both popular and useful in assisting instututions labouring under some financial disadvantge whist drivers are ‘all the rage’ just now.

“One of the best arranged and most enjoyable was that held at the Horsham Town Hall on Thursday night in conjunction with the Horsham Institute.

“Not very long ago the Institute boasted of well over 100 members, but various causes have contrivbuted to deplete the membership, it is hoped only temporarily.”
