Rotary Club of Morden Message from the President
The Young Chef District Semi Final took place on 26th January at Merton Technical College. A big ‘Thank You’ to all of you who helped with this event. Special thanks to Brian, Tony and Joss who endured the cold wind to put up banners and organise the car parking. Thank you also to Stan for taking some great photographs. The competition winners were Florence Pattenden, sponsored by Rotary Club of Fleet, and Oliver Trowell sponsored by Rotary Club of Banstead. They now go on to District Final. This is our next challenge as we are hosting the District Final of Young Chef at Merton College on Saturday, 2nd March. Hopefully the weather will be a little better by then. Mark this date in your diaries now!
John Telford has organised a varied speaker’s programme for us this year and hopefully we can take advantage of this to invite friends and colleagues to join us at club meetings. Our next speaker will be Gregory Alleyne from the Wimbledon Guild.
We are all aware that Faith in Action are always in need of blankets and sweaters etc. in this cold weather. However, they are also grateful for rucksacks or backpacks to carry belongings during the day.
It has been very nice to welcome our visiting Rotarian Hari Choudhary from the Rotary Club of Salford who has visited us regularly over the last few months whilst visiting his family.
Finally, looking forward to our purple crocuses appearing soon.
