MSSC are delighted that Ganley’s Irish Bar in Morden is proving to be an excellent venue for our monthly club social, which we will continue to hold on the first Tuesday evening of each month.  Ganley’s is located at 43-47 London Road, Morden SM4 5HP.  It is about two minutes’ walk from Morden Underground Station, which is at the southern end of the Northern Line.

Let us know if you would like someone to meet you at the station or at a bus stop to guide you to the pub, which is just across the road from Morden station.  Email or phone Richard on 07500 913 223. If you arrive on your own, once you have entered the pub, turn right and you will find the MSSC crowd in a side room.
