As Easter approaches, the Westerly Ware Association are hoping for Spring sunshine as they hold their first Easter egg hunt, in partnership with the Greyhound Pub.

Kew’s Amateur Dramatic company, the Q2 players are performing Oscar Wilde’s “The Importance of Being Earnest” at the National Archives.
