Trinity Mid-Whitgiftian Association
We are saddened to report that Alan Merricks, former Editor of the Association magazine, died in December following an operation to repair a heart condition.
WHO ARE WE?
The TMWA is a social organisation for the former pupils of Trinity School, Croydon.
Past and present members of staff are also eligible for membership, and are always welcome - no recriminations!
We have a well-equipped clubhouse in Sanderstead, a few miles away from the school, which is the headquarters for sports clubs (cricket, rugby and hockey) and a very active Amateur Dramatic society, the Mitre Players.
FOUNDER'S DAY SUPPER 2018, 23rd March
Another great success in prospect!
Warwick Jones and Alex Greenslade, with their trusty team of minions, have already started planning for the next event - the 101st Supper. Record numbers enjoyed the reunion in 2017, and you should book early to avoid disappointment.
Next year's supper will take place on Friday 23rd March, 2018, when Fraser Macdonald (1963) will be in the chair. Fraser was a long-serving member of the Modern Languages Department at Trinity. He was also an officer in the CCF (Naval Section) and was very involved with sub-aqua training.
As an alumnus Fraser is principally known for his many roles in the Mitre Players productions.

The scene in the Concert Hall last year
A new system has been introduced for all members of the Association and the Sanderstead Sports Clubs. The membership card will enable members to purchase goods from the bar at 'members' rates'
If you are a paid up member of the TMWA or of a TSSSC clubs, you are entitled to apply for a card - go to www.tsssc.co.uk/membership to apply.
Rugby entered 2018 in fine fettle. An excellent victory over the Old Whits, revenge for a defeat at the start of the season, has put them in danger of promotion, although there are many weeks to go!
Hockey are in a comfortable mid-table position in January 2018, threatening neither end of the table.
The Cricket Club has enjoyed a
successful season. less weather-affected than in some years. All senior
league positions were retained, and in an encouraging sign for the future,
the U10s, U15s & U16s all won their respective leagues.
Folk and Blues evenings
Under the guidance of Neil
Pepper (1971) we have started holding Folk and Blues evening on alternate
Wednesday evenings, at the club, starting at 9 p.m. Entrance is free and
audience and participants are equally welcome.
