From around 1950/51, the Wimbledon Community Association produced an annual programme which included a list of events, and a directory of organisations that were active in the borough. Some of these went on to meet at the Community Centre after it opened in 1955, and many continued to advertise in the annual programme.
If you or a member of your family belonged to one of these organisations, we’d love to hear from you and document your story to help us celebrate our 75th anniversary. Additionally, if you’re linked to of any of these groups, we’d love to hear from you and reconnect by offering our new Community Group membership.
