Special Events

Merton.TV sometimes have cover special events, if a video recorded then you will find these in date order from the main front page, but sometimes the special event maybe a group of videos or other such.

The first one we covered was Local Democracy Week, where we publicised the event and the meetings residents could attend.

On the 26th September 2018 we covered the Save Wimbledon Police Station public meeting where most political parties turned up to come up with a plan to save the local facilities.

We also covered the Friends of Wimbledon Town Centre meeting on The Wimbledon Masterplan on the 12th November 2018.

On 9th March 2019 Merton.TV broadcast the National Peace Symposium live from the Baitul Futuh Mosque in Morden.

For the 2019 General Election, Merton.TV was central to the Merton Coverage of both Mitcham & Morden and Wimbledon Constituencies.  Working with local organisations XR Merton, Merton College and Wimbledon Churches every single husting events was filmed.  Candidate details and party manifestos were also made available to visitors of the Merton.TV website.  The finale of the coverage saw live broadcasting on the evening and early morning of the count where viewers watched live as the results were announced in Merton for both Mitcham & Morden and Wimbledon.

After the March 2020 government guidance on the Coronavirus social distancing measures, Merton.TV decided to withdraw from filming, requesting that Merton Council use their existing unused equipment to record meetings for the very first time in the council’s history, the first being Cabinet on 23rd March 2020.  Merton.TV carried on collating the agenda and videos for both Council meetings and third party meetings involving council staff.

Other local events covered include events hosted by Battle’s Over Merton Tribute, Clinical Commissioning Group, Merton CIL, KOSHH, Morden Remembrance Day Service and many more.
