About us

The Croydon Whitgift Breakfast Club is designed for all of us who lead busy lives and wake up early, a perfect way to start the day, a great opportunity for networking with other professionals in business, local politics and voluntary organisations and a chance to make a difference.

In the light of the Covid19 Virus outbreak restrictions we a currently foregoing breakfast at Coombe Lodge and are holding a Zoom meeting at 9.00 every Wednesday morning. This enables us to progress the business of the club and occasionally we have outside speakers who are able to make presentations over Zoom.

We are a club of professional individuals based in the private and voluntary sectors, in the fields of accountancy, law, surveying, hotels and leisure, human resources and local politics to name a few. Why not come and like us on Facebook or follow Croydon Whitgift @networkista on Twitter to keep up with our activities.

We meet for breakfast at 7.15 for 7.30 at the Meeting Room, Coombe Lodge, Coombe Road a little way up from the Lloyd Park tram stop. Our meetings are informal, informative, over by 8.30 and most importantly fun!

Our early morning start means that we are able to attract a wide range of speakers from areas such as the local council, local media, local charities, and interest groups and visitors from the UK and overseas.

What we do

Our activites are listed and illustrated under the headings of Community Service, Fundraising Projects, International Projects and Youth Projects but these activites are all underpinned by the enjoyment of fun and fellowship while preparing for and carrying out these activities and this is fostered through our weekly meetings and a range of other sociable activities.
