Message from President Margaret Sinclair

We have had a very busy start to the new Rotary year. Funday always demands so much input and many thanks to those of you who manned the Rotary tent. Many thanks also to all those who helped on the gates. Fantastic support as usual.

I was happy to attend the award ceremony at Perseid School and head teacher Tina Harvey was very welcoming and mentioned that she would love to come along and talk to us at some time.

I had the pleasure of visiting Hatfeild School to hand out dictionaries to year 8 who are leaving primary school for secondary school. The books were handed out during assembly when all the year 8 parents were present. Such a lovely occasion.

We had a very enjoyable evening at New Malden Golf Club when we had the chance to meet the DG and our ADG. This was followed by a welcome visit from our ADG Ian Rose. We hope he will visit us again soon.

We now look forward to one of our special evenings at Cuddington in August. Tony is busy organising this and John has arranged a speaker who I know will be great fun. In fact, we are looking forward to many interesting speakers over the next few months. Having heard of a group of disabled army veterans who plan to cycle from the Haig Homes Morden to lay a wreath at Mons on Armistice Day – a great venture which deserves our support – we hope to get one of the cyclists to come and talk to us. John is planning to arrange a visit either before they set off or when they return – or both! As we have the largest Haig Homes in the country on our patch, it is important to give them every support we can. What an ideal evening to invite friends!

We may be a small club but we are also a very active club and we look forward to increasing our membership this year.

'Dictionaries for Life'
RC Morden 'Dictionaries for Life' have been handed out to Sacred Heart and Hatfield schools at their assemblies for the children going up to High School.
They were much appreciated by pupils, staff and parents.
Combined with the dictionaries given at West Wimbledon School this completes our project for this year.

156 dictionaries have been distributed to pupils and school libraries. As the Head of Hatfield said ‘They are more like encyclopaedias than dictionaries’.

Speakers
At Morden Rotary we occasionally enjoy guest speakers. Upcoming guests include:

2 Aug Lisa Fernandes World Child Cancer 
16 Aug Monique Nullens Shine (mentoring)
30 Aug Anne Chance OBE Petticoat Pilots
20 Sep Charles Marriott Mary’s Meals

Thank you.
