War Memorial Appeal – Great News

The Friends of StJohn’s (FoStJ)are delighted to report that the target of the Appeal for monies to repair the storm damaged War Memorial was reached this week !

The support from the Merrow Community and Church members has been amazing with well over 60 donations amounting to over £2,400. However, this week Guildford Borough Council, seeing how much effort had been made by the community, stepped into the breach and made a ‘Matched Fund’ donation of £1700 to take us to our target of £4,078 with a small surplus to allow for the total clean of the Memorial, not just its repair.

FosStJ would like to thank everyone for their generosity and commitment to the valuable community asset that is the War Memorial standing within the StJohn’s Churchyard.
