From the Cambridge News, April 1904 (reprinted in the Cambridge Evening News 3 June 2004, p.8)
Congregation's angerThere has been a sequel to the hostile demonstration by the village of Hardwick against their rector. Although nearly a year has elapsed since the eventful evening on which members of his flock marched to their shepherd's abode and expressed unfavourable opinion of the occupants by beating improvised tom toms the influence of that episode still disastrously infects the village. The Rector gave notice to occupiers of allotments on the glebe land and the impression is prevalent it is because of their refusal to attend church. The congregation has dwindled and only eight attend Sunday worship.
