How long does it take to repair the public toilets in King Street Shopping Mall? This is my 2nd visit within the last 2 weeks and once again there is a sign stating the public toilets are currently closed for essential maintenance!One would have thought that Hammersmith Council would do everything in it's power to attract shoppers into the area, it is ridiculous that it has been 2 weeks already without the 'essential works! being completed.

Further to the B.B.C. 4 documentary Dark Son - The Hunt for a Serial Killer being broadcast nationally at 9.00 pm on Tuesday February 12. South Wales Police are actively pursuing forensic opportunities to link Abertillery-born Jones to the murder of 12 year-old Swansea school-girl Muriel Joan Drinkwater, 3 months after he left the army in 1946. A third cold-case team are actively researching Jones' possible involvement in the murder of Ignac Ulycz in Putney in August 1965. See information below from my book "Who Was Jack the Stripper? The Hammersmith Nudes' Murders."(At 10.45 pm on Sunday 15 August 1965, Mr Ignac Ulycz was fatally stabbed outside his own front gate at 323 Upper Richmond Road Putney...........Maddalena Ulycz told the police the assailant was between 50 and 60 years old. (Jones was 59.) Another witness said that the attacker had run around the corner into Colinette Road and just seemed to vanish into thin air. (Jones had been living in 20 Colinette Road.)The Wandsworth Boro' News of Friday 24 September 1965 reported on the inquest into the death of Mr Ulycz.........."The man who killed Mr Ulycz........may have been insane or a psychopath who every now and again feels the desire to attack someone in this way" suggests the Coroner Mr Gavin Thurston.)The fact has now emerged that Jones was living at 20 Colinette Road Putney using the name Harry Stevens while AT THE SAME TIME registered as living at 51 Aldensley Road Hammersmith under the name Harry Jones.

Do you remember a character from a childhood book as fondly as an old friend?If you do, you’ll know the magic of being able to slip into another world as and when you need to, or how books can make your world a bigger, brighter place.For bookworms especially, it’s hard to believe that anyone could see reading as anything other than empowering, or even just a pleasure. For the third of children from disadvantaged areas who leave primary school without being able to read well, often it’s nothing but a chore.That’s why we like to turn up on the doorstep, with a backpacks full of books, two little stools, and a pair of volunteers who know that words take you places. Every week, come rain or shine, our volunteers bring the magic of reading directly into families’ homes every week, in low-income areas across London.Doorstep Library volunteers don’t just read stories; they do the silly voices, handpick the books, and give special recommendations. By making it fun first, we get to watch children transform into budding readers. We love when parents get stuck in with the sessions too and encourage them to get involved in their children’s education.Sometimes though, we’re just there to give a bit of extra support, whether we’re passing on info about a family activity, lending an ear, or even just being a friendly face. Then, before we go, we leave behind a selection of books for each child to borrow for the week.If this sounds like the role for you, these are the basics. We run projects on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday afternoons in estates across Westminster, Hammersmith and Fulham and Lambeth.In Hammersmith and Fulham, we start at 3.45pm and finish at 6.30pm. If you'd like to know more contact Daniela Cardoso at firstname.lastname@example.org

Over the last 5 years there has been massive construction of private apartments along the corridor from Kensington to Hounslow, such that currently, during the morning and evening extended rush hours being able to get on a bus has become more and more difficult.On this route, the access to the Piccadilly line to get to Heathrow has escalator/lift access at only Hammersmith and East/West Hounslow. This means that disabled people, those who suffer from claustrophobia and those with heavy baggage in this area, are forced to use a taxi, at a cost of £20 - £40. When the matter has been raised over the last few years with TFL, the ongoing excuse is that it would make the route too long! So if that is the case, would TFL give consideration to introducing a new service to start, when the N9 stops its extension during the day, known as an EXPRESS service 9 (X9) running during the day and only stopping at centres of commercial areas with many other local bus services, or underground, serving as a feeder service. This would have a considerable number of benefits for all users plus those who want to travel long distances on the existing services, being able to travel quicker than staying on the local bus service, as with the 607 along Uxbridge RoadPROPOSED BUS STOPSHammersmith Bus Station, (Start point of service) Stop BTurnham Green Church Stop DD/CVBrentford High Street Stop BL/BNIsleworth Stop FHounslow West Station Stop AHeathrow Central Bus Station Stand 19Heathrow T5 Stand 6All these stops are on the existing N9 service route.BONUSWith ongoing problem of existing road congestion, and the construction of the new runway, it is forecast that there will be considerable delays in the local area. As a case in point on the morning of 9 November I went to collect a passenger from T3 and it took 1 HOUR to get from the junction with the M4 into Terminal 3! In the event that these sorts of congestion arise again, the Local TFL area manager can decide to turn the bus around at Hounslow West station, thus allowing passengers for Heathrow to transfer onto the Piccadilly line into LHR.If you support this concept for an additional service, every concerned person would be gratefully appreciated. To do this, please send an email to your MP and London assembly representative. Please also put any ideas that make the idea more relevant, and then post them to the forum.'See https://www.theyworkforyou.com/mp/ where you can find details of you MP and https://www.london.gov.uk/people/assembly for your GLA representative. When posting your support, copy and paste the above leaving the last paragraph off the paste.

From the pictures it does look much better and concentrating on the external is a good idea but the inside is so unappealing......there are hardly any shops! OK there is Sainsbury's and Wilko, a handful of mobile phone shops, a jewellers, a card shop, WH Smith and Poundland (of which there is one on the outside), Clarks shoe shop and Tiger but these are hardly going to attract many people and I'm sorry but the food hall is to me the most unattractive food area I have ever seen. And from what I have heard many of the food outlets are closed.

B,B.C. 2 Wales at 9.00 pm on January 12. For viewers with Sky and Freeview it can also be seen on the same date and time. Otherwise for viewers throughout the U.K it can be viewed at 9.00pm pm on B.B.C.4 on January 22. It is the biggest unsolved serial murder case in British criminal history - the so-called 'Jack the Stripper' murders took place in Swinging Sixties London.Six women lost their lives to a killer who was never caught. Criminologist Professor David Wilson leads an investigation to unmask the killer, who claimed more victims than even his notorious Victorian namesake, Jack the Ripper.Professor Wilson and his investigative team - which includes former detective Jackie Malton and forensic psychologist Professor Mike Berry - begin their hunt for the killer not in London, but 150 miles away in Abertillery, South Wales. In 1921, the Welsh mining town was devastated by the double murder of two schoolgirls when eight-year-old Freda Brunell and 11-year-old Florence Little were killed just weeks apart by a local boy 15-year-old Harold Jones, who the Abertillery residents still refer to as their 'Dark Son'.Those murders - especially the sadistic nature of their deaths, and the treatment of the bodies afterwards - have eerie parallels with the 'Jack the Stripper' murders. Could Harold Jones the boy killer really have matured in later life into a serial killer?To test this theory, the team revisit the scenes of the murders in west London. They use contemporary policing techniques such as geographical and offender profiling to see if the crimes of Jones the boy can be measured against those of Jack the Stripper. And from the outset, it becomes apparent there are many chilling similarities.

Beware of scammers.There are many persons who are being persuaded by fraudulent Facebook adverts to invest £250.00 in Bitcoin. The adverts show Dragons Den celebrities praising the bitcoin revolution and falsely claiming the Dragons have themselves made millions from this wonderful venture. They falsely claim Chris Eubank, Jim Davidson, the Dragons and others have made millions from their investment. The truth is you will lose at least £250.00.

Can anyone with a knowledge of scientific matters please help? Muriel Drinkwater aged 12 was raped and murdered near Swansea in 1946. In 2008 South Wales Police located Muriel's coat which had been stored away since 1946. The coat produced a profile from semen found on the coat. It was a Y-STR profile which unfortunately cannot link a known suspect in the murder to the suspect's daughter who is still alive. I have been led to believe that only a son can provide the link, but the suspect has no sons. Can nephews or any other family member of the suspect provide the link?

Does anyone by any chance have a copy of the 1989 True Detective Winter Special? I am particularly interested in the content on page 35. Master Detective, part of the True Detective Group refuse to send me a scan of what is published on page 35 but they have forwarded me a scan of the front and inside page stating that a story on page 35 deals with former Hammersmith, Fulham and Putney child killer Harold Jones. They won't send me the scan because they have stolen photographs that I own copyright of and they have used them in the August 2018 edition of Master Detective. They have scanned about 12 of my photos directly from my book Every Mother's Nightmare - Abertillery in Mourning to use in the August edition. They state in an email to me that I should be grateful that they recommend my book.

When I read the initial coverage of the Jameson on Blythe Road changing its name to the Trump Arms I thought it was a bit of fun and a clever publicity stunt.
However, some of the subsequent coverage has suggested it might be a good idea to avoid the place on Saturday. The description of the event as a Nazi Ball by some left wing groups just shows their lack of understanding of history. The organisers seem to include perfectly respectable right of centre organisations like the Bow Group and the Bruges Group but they perhaps need to be a bit more careful over the company they keep.
This recent article from the Talk Radio web site shows that one of the organisers of the event is Lucy Brown. Her involvement is highlighted in the latest edition of Private Eye in which they claim she was the camera operator for EDL leader Tommy Robinson's inflammatory anti-Islamic YouTube videos. and helped him organise a 'Day for Freedom' rally.

On Saturday 4 August 2018 at 2.00pm, a memorial service is being held in the Metropole Theatre, Abertillery, South Wales for two Abertillery murder victims, 8 year-old Freda Burnell and 11 year-old Florence Little who were killed in Abertillery in 1921.Their killer, Harold Jones a.k.a Harry Stevens lived in Fulham, Putney and Hammersmith between 1946 and 1971 when he died. With a choir and town band performing at the memorial service there is expected to be over 250 people attending. There will be an expected 50 members of the 2 girls' family members attending from various parts of Britain. After the service there will be a re-dedication of the 2 girls' memorials at Brynithel Cemetery.Over the past 7 months, myself, Councillors Gill Clark and Julie Holt have raised nearly £3,400.00 towards the cost of restoring the 2 dilapidated memorials. We are still about £200 short of paying the memorial mason who has done the work at cost price and about £300 short of printing 260 memorial service programmes. These will consist of 8 pages each.We have now been given a donation to book the Metropole Theatre for the event. We have also been kindly offered a donation of £300 towards the cost a buffet that will be held in the Metropole later in the afternoon.If anyone would like to consider making a donation for this worthy cause please contact me on 07989555376 or email@example.comPlease google Florence Little/Freda Burnell or Harold Jones - Killer for more information.Regards.Neil Milkins

The 94 bus is due to be less frequent from this weekend, TfL has decreed. I frequently take this bus as do many others.When he was Mayor Ken Livingstone increased the frequency of the 94 bus. Now Sadiq Khan has undone this. How does reducing bus services throughout London (the 94 is not the only casualty) help reduce congestion and pollution? It doesn't.A bad assessment here and a bad decision.

Regarding Abertillery child killer Harold Jones. 10 years ago, New Scotland Yard informed South Wales Police that they believed it was possible that Harold Jones may have been the killer of 12 year-old Muriel Joan Drinkwater in Swansea in 1946. The Detective Chief Inspector who led the murder inquiry ten years ago has retired from the Force refusing to believe that Jones was the killer, although D.N.A could prove one way or the other whether Jones was or not. Now under instructions from the South Wales Police Chief Constable Matt Jukes, the case is being looked into by South Wales Police Assistant Chief Constable Jonathan Drake, Detective Chief Superintendent Danny Richards and Detective Chief Inspector Mark O'Shea. Five years ago respected Detective Chief Inspector Paul Bethell confirmed that Jones WAS a suspect in the Drinkwater murder inquiry.

As my council does not specifically collect waste food, and my recent outlets no longer require more, I am at a loss as to where to deposit waste food. It is not much - just a small biodegradable bag each week, say, but I would like to find a LOCAL place that can use this as compost so it is NOT wasted! Any school garden, park, allotment etc etc would do!

At the bottom of Shepherds's Bush Rd there is a Bus Lane on the off-side of the road that runs for about 15 metres.I have been fined for entering into that lane for what must have been about 3 seconds when there was no bus in sight, either behind or in front of me, and where the build up of rush-hour traffic was released onward by my moving forward.Should cars be fined in such circumstances where there is clearly no obstruction for buses and where the transgression is for such a short period?I would welcome the local inhabitants perspective?

What astonishing scenes in Hammersmith last night! Hope anyone isn't too badly affected. A fantastic response from the emergency services but less so from Thames Water. Surely their under investment in our water network is short sighted because the insurance claims they are going to have to pay will be monstrous. I hope that none of the shops and restaurants in the affected area are driven under by this because I know it is a difficult stretch to make a decent income from.

I have had extensive contact with adult children of 6 of the Hammersmith Nudes' victims who were murdered between 1959 and 1965. Veronica Fleming the daughter of the sixth victim, Chiswick resident Mary Fleming visited Abertillery on the weekend to take part in a major B.B.C. documentary "The Hunt For A Serial Killer." I am still trying to locate relatives of 8th victim Bridget O'Hara who was murdered in January 1965. She had lived in a flat at 41 Agate Road, Hammersmith. Her husband was Micheal O'Hara and Bridget had many brothers and sisters. If anyone can help please contact me at 07989555376 or email@example.com

The following was posted on a site I follow on Facebook.........FREE TO GOOD HOME: 5 year old child. Genuine reason for re-homing: We just got a new puppy so no longer have the time for the child. We think the puppy might one day be allergic to child and are also worried the child might bite the puppy. Child also tortures puppy by pulling its tail. Child is potty trained, though with occasional mistakes and up to date on all shots. Needs a home by tomorrow or it'll be put to sleep. Thanks! YOU WOULDN'T DO THIS TO A CHILD SO WHY DO YOU SEE IT AS ACCEPTABLE TO DO IT TO AN ANIMAL? If you can't dedicate 10-15 years to a dog then don't get one. A dog is for life, not just for Christmas

I'm afraid we've had to cancel the regular monthly energy boost healing session, held at the London Buddhist Vihara Chiswick, on Monday 8th January. Apologies for any inconvenience.We will however be back on Monday 12th February, when Energy Therapists will be at the London Buddhist Vihara, The Avenue, W4 1UD between 11am and 1pm (last session 12.45). The session takes about 15-20 minutes and I am sure that you will feel really good at the end of that time, with lots of vital energy to enable you to enjoy the rest of your week! A number of therapists come in each month and give their services free. The Vihara kindly allow us to use the hall at no charge so a donation is most welcome as this enables us to give the donations to the Vihara.These sessions are not related to any religion, everyone is welcome.

Bit of a long shot but these forums have been such a help over the past 10 years. I am trying to contact relatives of the above who were married in Chelsea in 1931. Eileen's father John Widdows and sister Muriel Ellen May Widdows lived at 29 Hestecombe Avenue Fulham in the 1960's. George and Eileen had a daughter Patricia A Crowe born in Chester in 1941. It is believed Patricia married Dennis M Jones in Chester in 1959. Someone with the name B.Trott may have been in the family.

In August 1996, Kim Rossmo, a detective inspector from the Vancouver Police Department (VPD), was contacted by a UK police task force called Operation Lynx. The task force involved police officers from three counties -- Leicestershire, West Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire -- who were all searching for a man responsible for five abductions, rapes and violent sex attacks over the previous 15 years.Rossmo had developed geographic profiling, a method of tracking serial criminals which used data about the location of the crimes. Because of Rossmo's geographic profiling the rapist was caught. Rossmo recently identified Aldensley Road Hammersmith as the centre of a hotspot where he believed the Hammmersmith Nudes' killer lived. Who lived in Aldensley Road when the murders took place? The Dark Son of Abertillery, Harold Jones!

A new book- The Secret Life Of Freddie Mills has been released by a former Sun newspaper reporter, Michael Litchfield published by a former Sun editor of Bizzare, John Blake. The book alleges that former world boxing champion Freddie Mills was the person dubbed The Hammersmith Nudes' Killer of the 1960's. Evidence proves that Mills has been wrongly stitched up. The book has been publicised in the Sun, the Daily Mail and other newspapers including the Bournemouth Echo the town where Freddie Mills was born. Comments from readers of the Bournemouth Echo have roundly condemned the malicious lies. If you read the Bournemouth Echo story most persons would I believe think the alleged evidence to be preposterous. (google Freddie Mills-Bournemouth Echo.) For instance in the book Freddie Mills had allegedly confessed to John du Rose the officer in charge of the case that he was the killer. But because Du Rose and Mills were Freemasons Du Rose never told his superiors. Even more ludicrous- fact Freddie Mills was desperately short of money when he died yet the book claims he gave the Kray Twins £1000 to assassinate him. Rightly Freddies daughter Susan and his stepson, actor Don McCorkindale are incensed.

The locally based Addison Singers comprises two classical choirs – an auditioned Chamber Choir and larger non-auditioned Oratorio Choir; and two jazz choirs – an auditioned Jazz Ensemble and a larger non-auditioned all-female Jazz Choir. It also offers three different singing classes to meet the needs of beginners, intermediate and the more competent, experienced singer. We're a very friendly group of choirs, (some of us get together after rehearsal in the bar on site!) and new singers are always welcome. Do have a look at our website, our new term is about to start and enrolment is happening now. If you're not sure, you can even join in the first rehearsal as a "taster session"! More details here, https://www.addisonsingers.com/ or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also ask me any general questions :-)

Ever since the beginning of the year, there has been a slowly increasing pile of rubbish outside 302 King Street which is underneath our block of flats & opposite the Tesco Extra store. This includes broken glass & is an ugly eyesore that is apparently on private property, a couple of metres back from the regular pavement. I have been in touch about this on regular occasions with the Hammersmith & Fulham's Cleaner Greener hotline who then put me in touch with Richard Acholowino,the Public Protection & Safety Officer,whom I contacted on numerous occasions (both by phone & email) & each time he has assured me that he will take care of it. However, nothing has happened & people continue to add to the pile. Out of sheer frustration, I emailed Andy Stocker, our "Street Czar," who got back to me immediately saying he would take a look & update me in due course. That was four weeks ago & I've heard nothing & the rubbish pile keeps getting bigger & messier & is an embarrassing sight that no one seems to want to take responsibility for.With our council so far proving totally ineffectual, has anyone out there got any ideas on how we can sort out this ridiculous situation?

09:15, Saturday, 15th July - 15 oBikes dumped outside the entrance to Fulham Broadway Station. Since then, I have seen several more left in various places in the Borough.I would encourage the Council to take them off the streets immediately (forget polite notices from the Street Scene Enforcement team) and charge the company a hefty fee to get them back.

Message: Yes you at right. There are a cabal of "nutters" who spoil the Chiswick site for me and many others. However it IS used and a benefit to many. I am amazed that how poorly the Hammersmith site is contributed to. It's free so why not use it and help to improve it.

There appears to be massive financial pressure exerted from the top of the NHS and from Jeremy Hunt on the management of Imperial and other London hospitals trusts.There are no less that three plans to sell off the Imperial "estate":(1) the original 2013 "Shaping a Healthier Future" [title always makes me choke!] (2) "Project Phoenix" - the NHS's PPP plan to sell off all NHS land in the South East including London by the end of June by European tender.(3) a new appeal for ideas by Imperial - article in print edition of Evening Standard on 22nd June called " 'Best ideas' wanted from developers as three hospitals look to rebuild" (available in pressreader.com)Yes, they could all be current plans. The common theme is a "fire sale". When you look at the Government's "starving diet" for the NHS it is easy to see why.

Guy Standeven was one of the most prolific actors in British history. He was born in Scarborough in 1928 and died in Hammersmith in 1998.He lived in London for the bulk of his life as the majority of his work was done here. He was in over 1000 productions over the years including film, TV, theatre, Radio and voice over work. Many of this was extra work but he had substantial speaking parts in the children's TV series Knightmare among others. I'm researching his life and career for an article and would love to hear from friends, acquaintances, family or colleagues of the man. If anyone can help we can speak on this forum or exchange emails.

All NHS England "surplus" land (any land on which it is either impossible to run services because of the squeeze on current running expenditure or genuinely redundant land) is to be parcelled up into 6 regions and sold off as Public Private Partnership deals through European tendering arrangements to be completed by end June.

I'm deeply concerned that in the build up to the General Election there has been little discussion about the disastrous changes to the NHS being proposed by the local Sustainability and Transformation Plan, the "North West London STP" which covers 8 boroughs from Westminster to Hillingdon. These plans for the 44 "footprint" regions of England and Wales have been made in a secretive manner, with very little public information and are nothing more than plans to slash, trash and privatise our NHS. But most worrying are large private healthcare companies and their lobbyists, such as Virgin Care and American healthcare companies including UnitedHealth, the previous employer of Simon Stevens CEO of the NHS, which will chase the UK's expenditure through the NHS using the Health and Social Care Act 2012. This pressure will inexorably lead to the American model of healthcare management which causes 50% of personal bankruptcies each year in the US. All the STPs call for "Accountable Care Organisations/Systems", a term which Americans recognise only too well. This system with low fixed budgets will be screwed down so that it does not meet the public need and it will turn the health provision in England and Wales into a two tier health system where the rich will pay and the rest of us will be left with a very poor, minimal NHS, like the American Medicare/Medicaid system. I would urge all readers to contact their candidates and let them know that the public will not stand for the destruction of the NHS and all MPs must reject the STPs and reject the move to Accountable Care Organisations. These "new models of care" will end the NHS as a comprehensive service that provides the full range of care to all who need it, free at the point of need and fully accountable to the public (private companies will hide their waste as well as their profits). Readers can find their candidates on the website. www.whocanivotefor.co.uk/elections

I find the tiling around Lyric Square slippery at the best of times, but today for the second time this month I have slipped rather dramatically. The first time it was on grease from the Hog Roast stall and today on a piece of vegetable from the Organic stall. Surely I can't be the only person who has experienced this? I have to admit I didn't report it, in fact I scuttled away both times totally embarrassed at the spectacle I made of myself. I'll be walking on the other side of the road in future!

Is it my imagination or are Parking Restriction Notices being put up too close to the date of the restriction coming into force? I do not use my car on a regular basis, so do not always check once parked. I have received a ticket and I am sure the notice was not displayed with the statutory period beforehand. I would be interested to hear of other residents' experiences.

Hammersmith and Fulham is in Rotten Boroughs in Private Eye again. This time it is about the costs likely to arise from the collapse of the Triborough arrangement with K&C and Westminster. Probably it was inevitable that a Labour run Council wouldn't be able to work in such a close arrangement with to Conservative run ones but it would appear that the costs of pulling out of the deal may be significant. The rather shady background to the contract given to Olympic Cars to transfer people with special needs around the borough gets another airing. Also there is talk of a payments contract signed with BT that was supposed to save millions but now will cost local taxpayers even though it was never implemented.

The Guide Dogs London team is looking for volunteers in the London W6 postcode who are interested in boarding our dogs in training. You would have the dog at home for evenings and weekends and bring it to a hub in W6 between 8-10am weekdays and collect it again between 4-6pm at the end of its ‘school day’! You would need to be able to commit to a period of 12-16 weeks and we will first carry out a home visit to ensure that your home is suitable for one of our dogs. You will receive 3 training sessions and then, if you are accepted, your first dog would be a trial period for us to assess your suitability and for you to decide whether it is the right role for you. If you are interested in finding out more about what is involved, please email Desirée Polluk our Volunteering Consultant by 12th May at firstname.lastname@example.org

Morning folks!Has anyone had any problems with Bridge Academy/ TBAP for sharing information or handling complaints especially if you are an absent parent?I was excluded from an exclusion meeting earlier this week and the no written response has been provided except a verbal "that's how we operate here", but refuse to provide this in writing. Even raising a complaint with Krishna Purbhoo - Executive HeadteacherTBAP West there has been no response despite a reassurance given and even myself a chase up call. Has even other parent experienced conduct like this?

Lucky members of Kensington Singers sang with Gary Barlow and the cast of the Girls at the Olivier Awards, to be broadcast this Tuesday April 11th on ITV.Members of Earls Court-based Kensington Singers were given an amazing opportunity to perform with Gary Barlow and the cast of his musical “The Girls” at the Royal Albert Hall for the opening of the 2017 Olivier Awards. Gary and co-writer Tim Firth were nominated for three awards. Hannah Brine, founder and leader of Victoria Park Singers said “It was again a real privilege for us to be performing with Gary and Tim. Many of us were involved in the 2016 Royal Variety Performance with them and it was a real highlight of the year. At the Oliviers we performed “Yorkshire” - a wonderful song about the customs of the north, with lyrics depicting the countryside and english traditions such as eating fish and chips. Its really moving and evocative. Thanks so much to Gary and Tim and everyone for inviting us!”The choir was then able to watch the ceremony which also included performances from Amber Riley (Dream Girls) and the cast of School of Rock and Jesus Christ Super Star. Kensington Singers new term starts on Monday 24th April and new singers are always welcome. Anyone who is interested in joining the choir should visit www.kensingtonsingers for more information and to sign up
