A house-to-house collection should be made at once

There was some progress with Winkfield’s war memorial plans.

THE WAR MEMORIAL

Another Public Meeting was held on June 26th, when the attendance was very poor. The Secretary reported that it had been found impossible to find a suitable site on which to move and add to the present Men’s Club Room as the only suitable land was not for sale; also the Y.M.C.A. could be of no help.

After some discussion, it was resolved that enquiries should be made as to the possibility of buying the land on which the present club room stands, with a view to enlarging this, and that there ought to be no longer delay in appealing funds. It was therefore decided that a house-to-house collection should be made at once to raise funds for putting up a Memorial Brass in the Church, and also to buy if possible the site of the Men’s Club Room in Winkfield Row, and the Caretaker’s cottage, with a view to enlarging the Club Room into a Parish Institute.

The estimated cost is about £600, and if the funds raised should not suffice, the question of the disposal of any surplus after the Brass has been erected, will be put before a meeting of the subscribers.

Since the meeting, it has been ascertained that the property required can be bought for £300.
