Lack of power to raise the requisite funds

Winkfield considered the options for a memorial.

The War Memorial Committee met on May 15th at the Working Men’s Club, and the various matters referred to the Committee at the last Public Meeting were discussed.

It was felt that lack of power to raise the requisite funds would preclude any idea of providing and equipping a Recreation Ground, but that it might be possible, provided a suitable site could be found and purchased, to raise funds enough to move and add to the present Men’s Club Room and make it, with perhaps the help of the Y.M.C.A. or the Church Army, a Village Institute and Social Club.

Pending enquiries as to this, it was resolved to leave open for the time being the alternative questions of the erection of a Memorial Cross, or the naming of a bed at the Ascot Nursing Home.
