Welcome to all friends and visitors in Kew

KewTW9 is run by keen community volunteers - our aim is to bring people together, through enjoying local events.  As the leaves start to turn, Kew is cautiously opening still further, though our pubs and restaurants are having to work with the latest restrictions.  But there's lots going on in October - above all, drum roll, Kew Village Market is back!  On Sunday 4th October, from 10am to 2pm, there’ll be over 35 stalls and live music, socially distanced of course please!  Our online "Reflections" series has more inspiring articles this month.  Heavenly Green skincare and beauty are back caring for clients in a carefully-managed, safe environment; the "In Flagrante Choir" tell how they've been singing throughout these strange months; and we hear how "The Avenue Club" has brought people back together, with more of their inspiring classes restarting face-to-face in a gradual reopening.  The green-fingered volunteers who keep Pensford Field carefully-managed, to support the environment, are once again holding Saturday Work Parties.  Do join them for some light gardening and distanced-socialising.  The Kew Neighbourhood Association, who support vulnerable members of our community, are now looking for our friendliest local dog!  Intrigued? Find out more about their Christmas Card competition.   And the dedicated team who run Kew Sparkle are not going to let the necessary cancellation of this year's Christmas Village evening stop them - there are alternative events planned, starting with a fun online fundraiser for the Christmas Village lights, on Wednesday 28 October 8-10pm.  Engage with a large virtual community group of friends, and help bring some early Festive Cheer to Kew Village.  These initiatives will be publicised on a new website, with social media and a poster campaign helping to raise donations.  More details on this and other local Christmas jollity will be here soon!  Meanwhile, to find out what else is going on in Kew, please visit our news section, and we also give details of our local community groups.
