The Wimbledon Community Association was founded in 1946 by a local group headed by Sir Cyril Black MP with the aim to promote the well-being of the broad community based around Wimbledon, to further cultural, social and physical welfare, and to foster a spirit of mutual service and friendship.

An independent registered charity, it is non-party political, non-sectarian and non-discriminatory on any social grounds.

Recently, about 100 groups used the Community Centre annually. These covered a multitude of self-help, leisure, educational, health, consultancy and sporting enterprises embracing all age groups and all backgrounds.

 

 

 

 


 

Wimbledon Community Association Annual General Meeting

Monday, 29 September 2014

Mansel Road Centre, Mansel Road, SW19 4AA – 6.45pm for 7.00pm.

Further to last year’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) trustees for the Wimbledon Community Association (WCA) have been working hard to try and come up with some proposals for the future of the organisation following the unfortunate closure of the St Georges Road centre in 2012 and the subsequent transfer of the site to the Council in 2013.

Various discussions have taken place with potential partners during the last year and we have also been exploring other options regarding an alternative possible direction for the WCA.

This has led us to focus on two primary alternatives for the future of the WCA in Wimbledon and the surrounding area:

(i)     Linking up with an existing organisation that provides community space to redevelop or extend their existing premises.

(ii)   Developing a service that better enables users and suppliers of community space to engage through a booking facility and other services.

From the analysis that the trustees have undertaken there appears to be a need for the second option and we are therefore proposing to put some resources and attention towards that in the coming year.  We will continue to examine options on how to apply the remaining resources towards new premises in conjunction with a partner but this will be a longer term project.

We apologise for not having kept the website up to date for those of you who check out the site but we would be delighted to provide more information on our proposals and receive feedback at our AGM which is being held, as last year at the Mansel Road Centre, Mansel Road, SW19 4AA on 29 September at 7.00pm. Refreshments will be available from 6.45pm.

As last year we welcome organisations who were users of the old centre as free members and would also like to extend the invite to the AGM to any other organisations or individuals with whom we have been in discussion regarding the supply of community space in Wimbledon and across the borough.

We are planning to put additional information on the website in the coming weeks but should you require any further details regarding the AGM please do not hesitate to contact us via email, by phone or through the post per the addresses below.

Should you be planning to attend it would be helpful for administration purposes if you could let us know anyway.  Proxies are also available for those member organisations who cannot attend.

We look forward to hearing from you.

David Hall
Chair of Trustees
