Everybody already understands the importance of saving and of lending what is saved to our country for national use

Villages competed with one another as to how much they could do for the war effort.

War Savings

We desire to invite all people of good will to come to S. John’s Hall on Wednesday, July 4th, at 8 p.m., to discuss the formation of a Mortimer War Savings Association. Everybody already understands the importance of saving and of lending what is saved to our country for national use. Mortimer has, we know, already done wonders in the matter, for example, of buying War Savings Certificates.

But everybody does not yet understand the advantage of co-operation in this matter. Think of the encouragement that is given to young people and to others who cannot buy a whole certificate right out when they see that their savings can be made fully useful to the nation, with much profit also to themselves, if they will put by only 6d. per week!

Results have been attained in other villages through War Savings Associations which have astonished no one more than the people themselves. And it would never do for Mortimer to be behindhand. We therefore wish to invite everybody to come and hear more of this scheme and its methods and advantages in S. John’s Hall on Wednesday, July 4th, at 8 p.m. We believe that a vigorous Association will be the result and that it will achieve wonders.

A. Baskerville Mynors, Vicar.
E. C. L. Mowbray, Chairman, Parish Council.
