A very pretty but quiet wedding was celebrated at the Sacred Heart Church on Thursday, when Neil Gordon Featherstone was united in holy bonds with Emily Olive Granland. The bride’s parents recently resided at Bongongo, but for some time past have been living in Cootamundra. The bridegroom is in the police force, and stationed at Crookwell.

NEW SERGEANT KEEN ON SPORT
Sergeant Neil Featherstone, who took up duty this week as officer in charge and prosecutor for Singleton Police, is a keen sportsman. Since he joined the force 24 years ago, he has mainly been appointed to Western N.S.W. districts, including Broken Hill, where he played A grade tennis. Mrs. Featherstone who is also a keen tennis player, has not turned her attention as actively towards golf as her husband has. Since taking up the game Sgt. Featherstone has reduced his handicap to 20 and is looking forward, he said, to playing on the inviting Singleton course.
Only one of the three Featherstone children, four-year-old daughter, Julia, accompanied them to Singleton. An elder daughter, Eula, is nursing at Wagga Base Hospital and a son, Maurice is in the Railway Department in Sydney.
Sgt. and Mrs. Featherstone are looking forward to long and happy associations in Singleton.
