Walk & Talk in Morden

New Morden Walk and Talk – starts June 11th

Walk & Talk are launching a Morden Hall Park Walk and Talk from the picnic area next to the Stable Yard and Snuff Mill every Saturday at 10.30am from 11th June.

This lovely National Trust park is a joy to walk and talk in – rich in history,
and with so many walks, nature, sights and points of interest.

Garth Road Booking System Reinstated

It’s not often that the Mayor gets to make policy decisions, but in this case anyone who has queued to get in to the Garth Road re-use and recycling centre will have cause to be grateful.  Sally Kenny is also the councillor for Lower Morden Ward which includes the Garth Road site:

Further information and booking can be found on the council’s Garth Road website pages

MPWRA Meeting Minutes February 2020

Our February meeting was one of our most well-attended meetings ever! Clearly, climate change and the boundary review are topics that pique your interest and show how Merton Park residents care about the ward and the world we live in on a local and national level.

So along with our usual MPWRA Meeting Minutes February 2020 we also videoed the meeting for those of you that were unable to make it but would like to know more about Merton Council’s Climate Emergency Action Group.
