This notice was produced in February 1924 and it explains how the trustees are prepared to hire out the Grammar School for meetings, in particular meetings of an educational or social manner.
The charges include 6d (2.5p) for the lighting and 1/- (which means one shilling, worth 5p) for fires for meetings not exceeding 2 hours.

In 'old' money there were :-
240 pennies in one pound
12 pennies (12d) in a shilling written 1/- or 1s
20 shillings in a pound
2/6 was two shillings and six pence and called 'half a crown'
5/- shillings (5s) was a crown.
There used to be a threepenny piece - 3d
A sixpence - 6d
and as late as the 1950s there were still a few silver threepenny bits in circulation
A farthing was a quarter of one penny
A ha'penny was a half penny and as the name suggests was worth half a penny and one 480th of one pound.
