WESTON-ON-TRENT. WAITS AND "GUISERS."
*Nottinghamshire Guardian, *Christmas 1907

States; "On Christmas Eve several groups of young people visited the homes of the villagers and sung the popular Christmas carols. The guisers were also in evidence in their fantastic dress, and in true rustic fashion acted their play. The Aston-on-Trent Brass Band paraded the village about midnight and also on Christmas afternoon, and rendered seasonable selections. On the evening of Christmas Day, in the Wesleyan Chapel, a programme of solos, recitations, and readings was rendered, a collection being made on behalf of Dr. Stephenson's Children's Homes and Orphanages."
