Website updates

Update 26.11.19 – We try to update the website at least weekly. To reduce the number of posts we are now having a w/b date and will add updates under that week as they are done with the newest at the top, so there will be just one update post  a week, so please check back for additions. Hope that helps!

Please send info on events, news or information updates to me via the Contact Us page. You can also phone with info or drop written articles/information/posters addressed to KingslandLife into the Hen Box at Westmead, opposite the school.

Many thanks – Sally
