“Should the Choir Boys take up the matter seriously the War may end sooner than we think”

Two East Berkshire villages publicised their new War Savings Associations.

Crazies Hill Notes

As regards the War Savings Association Mrs. Gladdy has most kindly consented to be what is officially called “The Collector”. That is any member having a Card can purchase stamps from Mrs. Gladdy at her shop in the village. The stamps are called “Coupons.” The Cards are divided into squares for 31 Coupons. 30 Coupons together with Mr. Bond’s bonus of 6d. entitles the member to a 15/6 War Certificate – the benefits of which are well known to most of us by now.

A certain patriotic gentleman in the neighbourhood has promised to place the first stamp on the card of any Choir Boy (from Crazies Hill Choir) who wishes to become a member.

Should the Choir Boys take up the matter seriously the War may end sooner than we think.

Hare Hatch Notes

For those who desire to help their Country by paying into the War Savings Association, Cards and Coupons can be obtained any Monday evening 6.30 p.m., Hare Hatch Mission Room “in the Vestry.”

Coupons only can be had on application at Kiln Green Post Office any day during office hours.
