‘A huge achievement’: Cherished Morden youth club celebrates 65 years of helping young people

A Morden youth club celebrating its 65th birthday is putting on a free exhibition to mark the anniversary tomorrow.

Endeavour Youth Club will be visited by a host of dignitaries as they showcase photos and memorabilia of their history and work in the community from 11am-5pm this Saturday.

Merton Mayor David Chung, Vice Lord-Lieutenant of Surrey Bill Biddell and Wimbledon MP Stephen Hammond will be in attendance at the event which is open to the public.

Endeavour Youth Club manager Nick Skilton spoke of his continued pride at the important role the club plays in the community.

Mr Skilton said: “65 years in the community is a huge achievement and we are delighted that the Mayor of Merton is here to recognise the work that we do with the young people of Morden.

“We are committed to promoting the personal and social development of young men and women through enriching and exciting activities and outings for young people who may not otherwise have access.

“We hope to continue to positively shape the development of the young people in Morden for another 65 years.”
