Our 85th Anniversary

A Very happy Anniversary!
This year the Association celebrates its 85th Anniversary, and how better to mark this special occasion than the opening of our very own long-awaited Community Centre and Headquarters.
An HQ of our own has been a dream since the late Sixties and Seventies when the Association’s social scene was in its heyday.  Without the current distractions of 24/7 TV, the Internet and world-wide travel, all sorts of well-attended functions were organized to raise funds for this purpose from dinner dances to whist drives and Bingo.  The lady in the driving seat, a force majeure to be sure, was the late Mrs. Daisy Starr, a redoubtable woman of inexhaustible energy.
The Association has been sitting on those funds, waiting for the right opportunity to come along, and with the move of the Raynes Park Tennis Club from 129 Grand to its brand new premises at Meadow View, the Association was able to take over the lease of this site with funding available for some improvements.
The Pavilion is available for hire. For more information, click here.
