Raynes Park Afternoon Townswomen's Guild - Nov 2016

What an amazing local resource Morden Hall Park is!  It is a credit to the National Trust and their many volunteers.   A member who lives locally in Morden and knows the park well met our November Autumn walkers and was able to act as an unofficial guide.  She took us to the wet area especially to investigate the new board walk through the reeds.  Well designed and strongly made this was opened recently by the lady Mayor.  Our member had attended this opening ceremony and showed us a photograph she had taken.  With its magnificent trees and woods, rivulets, hay meadows, rose garden and children’s area – there is something for everyone here.  Needless to say we ended with a drink in the café. 

The previous week’s meal in the popular Morden Superfish was also well received by the lunch club. 

The Last Tango – the show at the Phoenix Theatre, starring previous Strictly Come Dancing professionals Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace – proved to be a delight.  Flavia and Vincent are fabulous dancers, their final dance, their speciality, the Argentine Tango, brought the whole audience to their feet.  The quality of the show made up for the group’s horrendous journey there involving torrential rain, traffic light to traffic light solid vehicles, a bus terminated prematurely because of conditions and an emergency taxi.  Ironically the journey back was exceptionally slick! 

We are looking forward to the usual jollifications during December and would like to wish everyone a joyous Christmas and a great 2017.
