    Has anyone heard about the Woking North congregation in the UK? It amalgamated with another hall on 3 August 2018.

    Just for clarification: Is that the same as a merger of two congregations so they become one congregation?

    The Borg official term is "dissolution" of one congregation, and sometimes a renaming of the other. There are official forms. The official Borg term they use for the schedule of mergers for an entire branch territory is: "master plan" - it's literally bringing them 100's of £millions in property sales!

    steve, I think you are right. I believe this congregation has merged with Woking South.

    I am presently going through all the meeting locations for each congregation to see if they're still active or have sold their halls.

    I used to belong to the Horndean congregation in Portsmouth Hampshire and we shared the hall with the Waterlooville congregation.

    Horndean then built it's own large KH on an industrial estate in Horndean and Waterloovile's got a refurb. I heard recently Waterloovilel KH is now a children's nursery but I have no idea if they moved or were merged into Horndean.

    I would love to know what happened there. :)

    Waterlooville is still a congregation and recently filed its 2017 account return.

    That is the address of the quick build KH we built because we outgrew the Waterlooville KH and it was a long way to travel.

    Horndean congregation got their own new hall and Waterlooville which was quite old got a complete refurb after we split.

    Looks they sold Waterlooville and now share Horndean. Waterlooville was in a very middle class residential street and near the town centre and shops so an expensive area whereas the new hall is on a grotty industrial site not near anything.

    Gosh, the first time I got married was in the Waterlooville KH Back in '68. I think it was located in Jubilee Road back then.

    That's right. After the meetings I would take the girls to Jubilee Park swings or go to the market at the football ground.

    ...in the comic books, only the bad guys use terms like "Master Plan".

    Gotta pay for those pedo cases somehow...

    ...right out of the RCC playbook, actually.
