Chairman’s Report for One Norbiton 2024

The major upheavals of the Covid epidemic are still being felt and now the regeneration of the Cambridge Estate is now well underway. Our last meeting was held jointly with CREst on 20/7/2023 all officers in both organisations were elected unopposed. Due personal stresses caused by family ill health Mike has been considerably less active in past year. Jill has also had problems losing her mother and having to cope with her father’s deteriorating mental and physical health. Both CREst and One Norbiton have therefore devoted most of their energy on ensuring the CREst’s Tuesday Club continues to function. (Its routine attendance figures are 100 to 150 while attendance on the first Tuesday of each month is 200 to 250.)  60 different nationalities have attended, and 35 different charities and other local organisations have participated.( Also see our article “What have we learnt from our Tuesday Club?”) Dr Kate Kenyan and her group of Kingston Cares have added many new valuable services on the first Tuesday of every month and we have had excellent support from our team of volunteers.

Our Treasurer Geraldine has continued to give invaluable support to both groups and She has submitted our financial returns to HMRC and will be reporting on our financial status.

The problems with the Tuesday group getting adequate interim Hall space had resulted in both One Norbiton and CREst resigning from the Community Board last year. However RBK has now agreed that in bad weather the Tuesday Club queue can wait in shelter of the upstairs room in Queen Mary’s Hall.   Therefore, Jill and I have told RBK we will be re-joining the Community Board.

My own proposed retirement and the merger of some of the functions of our two organisations has been deferred as has the proposal to create a role of a non-executive President.
