Merton Sport & Social Events in September 2021

MONTHLY PUB SOCIAL

We are delighted to have found a new, friendly, well located, easily accessible venue for our monthly club socials.

Please join us for our first social for over a year from 7.30 pm on Tuesday 7th September at Ganleys Irish Bar, 43-47 London Road, Morden SM4 5HP.

It is about two minutes’ walk from Morden Underground Station, which is at the southern end of the Northern Line. We are happy to arrange for someone to meet you at the station to guide you to the pub, just across the road from the station – and you don’t have to be Irish to be let in!

For more information, email info@mssc.org.uk

 

TANDEM CYCLING

Our tandem cycle rides, of varying lengths, CONTINUE TO take place on the first Sunday and third Saturday of each month. All abilities are welcome, from beginners to seasoned cyclists.

All start from the Guardian Centre in Colliers Wood and include a refreshment stop. Solo cyclists are also welcome. Members are asked to register using our new google booking form. The links to sign up for rides in October will be circulated shortly.

For more information, email cycling@mssc.org.uk

 

WALKING

Our monthly guided walks have also started again, with a different location each month. The August walk was a pleasant stroll in Morden Hall Park, and our next walk will be around 7 miles in Richmond Park.

For more information, email walking@mssc.org.uk

 

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING AND BBQ

This is a reminder that MSSC will be holding its Annual General Meeting from 2.00 pm on Saturday 25th September at The Guardian Centre, 67 Clarendon Road, Colliers Wood SW19 2DX.

The formal business of the AGM will be followed by a celebratory BBQ in memory of our dear friend and former member, Bob Waters who very sadly passed away last year.

For obvious reasons, we were unable to gather in person for last year’s AGM, so after such a challenging period of time and such a long absence of social events, we are really looking forward to getting together for this important meeting and this very special celebration.

For catering purposes, we need to ascertain numbers and dietary requirements, so we would be hugely grateful if you could register no later than Friday 27th August
