Wimbledon Community Association Annual
Monday, 29 September 2014
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
This has led us to focus on
two primary alternatives for the future of the WCA in Wimbledon and the

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
We look forward to hearing
