So, why is the theme of Malden Fortnight this year ‘Christmas’?
Well, the Rotary Club of New Malden along with the Malden Fortnight Committee has been active in raising funds for the maintenance and replacement of the Christmas Lights on our High Street for over 25 years. The long strings of bulbs that hang in the middle of the High Street are being replaced with LED lights which will be cheaper to maintain and run. You probably wouldn’t have thought about it, but we also need to pay the electricity bill! So our theme this year is Christmas so that we can raise awareness and money for this fund. We are now seeking donations from our wonderful New Malden community to support our other fundraising as we all enjoy the celebrations that accompany the start of the festive season and the twinkling Christmas lights help put us in the Christmas Spirit, it would be so sad if we can’t enjoy them! So please give generously when you see Rotary members with their collection buckets. Or you could arrange a bank transfer to Lloyds New Malden, Sort code 30-94-77, AC NO 02486385. Your contributions will really be appreciated. Thank you!
