Over several years, groups of older people have been meeting regularly in North Kensington looking at the local history of the area. They have shared and contributed many stories and memories of a fast changing part of London. This blog is a means to preserve these stories for future generations and to share with others who perhaps have long since moved away from North Kensington.
These groups were able to meet thanks to Open Age, Adult and Community Learning RBK&C, HISTORYtalk and Notting Hill Housing Association.
If you have a story or information that you would like us to put onto the blog, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
