St Saviour's War Memorial - Update


Most of you will be aware that the Scout Group was very involved last year with the development and launch of the “Men of Raynes Park” exhibition. This launched an appeal to raise funds to re-carve the names of the 97 men from the Parish who died as a result of the Great War on the memorial in the church grounds.  

The budget for the project is around £23,000.  To date the money raised or pledged, amounts to around £21,000, which is a tremendous achievement.  

Many parents and supporters of the Uniformed Groups, as well as members of the public, made contributions or pledges towards the appeal, for which the organisers at St Saviours are most grateful.  

St Saviour’s would like to thank everyone who voted for the project in the Tesco and Waitrose Community Support schemes.  Together these raised £2,281. 

The project, though, has been moving forward very slowly, though not through lack of effort or commitment from the St Saviour’s team. The current hold-up is with the War Memorial Trust who have placed restrictions on the agreed work, which we hope will shortly be resolved. 

As soon as we have a date for the commencement of work St Saviour’s team will be in touch to call in pledges.
