Upcoming Events - Oct 2014



Members will be interested to note that  The West Barnes Singers will be joined (much to their delight) by the Choristers of St. Mary’s Wimbledon at their Christmas Carol Concert on Saturday 6th December 2014 starting at 6.30 p.m.


The programme will consist of seasonal music, carols and readings, followed by complimentary mulled wine & mince pies will be on offer at St. Savour’s Church, Grand Drive, Raynes Park SW20 9DG.  Tickets will cost £10, but Children are free.   For more information why not visit their website at www.westbarnessingers.co.uk; and don’t forget their concert on Saturday 1st November 2014 at St. Paul’s Church, Augustus Road, Wimbledon Park, SW19, when they will be performing Gabriel Faure’s Requiem and French Romantic Motets.  Again tickets will cost £10, with children free.


There will be an Extraordinary General Meeting of the Friends of Raynes Park Library in the Library Hall on TUESDAY, 4TH NOVEMBER 2014 7pm for 7.15pm start.  This meeting is to determine the future of The Friends. The importance of an enthusiastic ‘Friends’ organization has been borne out by the tremendous success of the Friends of West Barnes Library who were able to forestall a proposed closure and have done much to help in improving the services on offer there. 











There’s plenty of fun and laughter 

This social club has now been running for six months and has 50 signed-up members who meet each Thursday, for talks, fun and games, and trips out.  Many members enjoyed the trip to Wisley Flower show, organized by Margaret Barratt for the Residents’ Association – a wonderful day out in gorgeous weather -  and along with Tuesday Rendezvous members  the theatre trips to Top Hat, Annie Get Your Gun and Barnham at Wimbledon Theatre.  

Club Members also joined the TWG for a very pleasant if windy Coach trip to Worthing, and also took themselves off to the Tower of London to see the wonderful porcelain poppies planted in the moat in commemoration of World War 1, as well as getting re-acquainting with the Tower(s) and some of the stories connected with them, and gazing once again with wonder at the Crown Jewels, simulated but staggering nevertheless, and displayed far more attractively than in the ‘old’ days, when we took our children or went on a school trip!
