Out and About and Play Gloucester Court Reminiscence Group is presenting an exhibition of photographs by Peter Dixon taken in North Kensington in the late 50s/early 60s, with recollections from members of the reminiscence group, now at North Kensington Library.

Two Potato: an oral history of children's play in North Kensington A documentary film made by Colville Primary School pupils, which was launched at the Gate Cinema last year, can be watched on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LMcSag7ItZE

The film documents the history of children's play in North Kensington, featuring interviews with local people along with archive images, capturing the joy and struggles of childhood in the area. The project explores aspects of play for pre-teen children including street play, playgrounds, singing games, rhymes and board games. In short, what people played, where they played and how they played.

The film, interviews and children's writing are available on the project website. For further information please visit www.onepotato.org.uk Digital Works City Living Local Life

Welcome to the new Colville Ward
In December 2013 Parliament approved new ward boundaries for the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea.

These changes affected Colville Ward. The new ward now extends south to include Longlands Court, Chepstow Villas and Stanley Crescent.

The ward retains three Councillors at Council elections.
