About us

Rotary Club of Morden Message from the President & Christmas Collections

Any Rotarian will tell you, we are often asked “What is Rotary?” or “What does Rotary do?” Barry decided to do something about this and organised an evening at The Brook to give us the chance to invite friends and colleagues to introduce them to our club and showcase what we do. It was such an enjoyable evening.
The event has set us all thinking about increasing our membership. I know this has prompted some of us to look at other ways to do this. So -- any new ideas to Barry please. I certainly feel that the evening was a great venture and one which would be well worth repeating. So, a big “Thank You” to Barry for all his hard work and another big “Thank You” to The Brook for their amazing support for the evening. They were superb.

During the evening, our ADG Ian Rose informed us that areas of currant ADGs will be changing. We now find ourselves included with Sutton/Croydon clubs. This to come into effect at the beginning of the new Rotary year- July 2019.
It was my privilege to induct Margaret Redway as a new member. Always an honour for a President. After our Open evening let us hope we will have more inductions in the not too distant future.
We now look forward to the Christmas Collections which will certainly give us another chance to show Rotary in action. We kick off the Christmas proceedings when we start collecting in Kingsbridge/ Aragon Road area on Friday 7th. Then on Sunday 9th we place Santa’s Sleigh outside The Brook. They are having a special Christmas event to raise funds for charity and we are more than happy to give them our support.
Our next meeting will be our Christmas Social Event at Cuddington. Time to invite friends. Many thanks to Tony for his stalwart work in organising the evening. The evening will also be the time for the “Big Christmas Draw”. Christmas is a time to consider those less fortunate than ourselves. Don’t forget, we can pass on any unwanted clothes and blankets to the homeless. Margaret
