September 2019

Welcome to all friends and visitors

– the mellow days of Autumn are nearly upon us and there’s a busy diary of events and news in Kew.

Kew is a bustling community of local businesses and organisations – if you have a favourite do join in the “People’s Vote” of the Richmond Business Awards. Our fabulous monthly Kew Village market  is on Sunday 1st September.  There’ll be 50 stalls to browse and shop from – arts, crafts plus great street food and live music from Otkar Music Trust and Hanwell Ukulele Group.   On the same day, there’s an extraordinary concert at St Anne’s Church on Kew Green.  “Citizen of Nowhere: Mieczysław Weinberg, A Sung Life”  pays tribute to a 20th century composer whose works reflect the holocaust, and life in Soviet Russia.  For little people, The National Archives welcome pre-school children with their parents/carers to a sensory “Time Travel Tots” drop-in session. The now well-established social group, Meet in Kew, offers another delightful evening on 12th September, welcoming new friends and old to St Luke’s Church in the Avenue.  You can keep in touch with community policing at an outdoor daytime meeting on 10th September  at North Sheen Rec.  And we’re looking forward to the rest of 2019 – the team from Kew Sparkle, our village’s festive Christmas Evening, are now inviting applications for stalls!  Check out how to apply here. So whether we enjoy an Indian summer, take part in autumn events, or start thinking about Christmas – it’s all happening in Kew!

To find out about our local community - please visit our news link and events link sections, and we also feature local groups and businesses. Kewtw9 is a group of keen local volunteers – do get in touch if you want to share what’s happening, or to join our jolly team (meetings are fuelled with coffee and cake), so we can all enjoy bringing people together in Kew..
