Hello lovely KM readers,
Here’s your weekly newsletter from Kensington mums.
Keeping you in the loop with the local scoop


We’ve had a busy week at Kensington Mums HQ. I guess as they say, time flies when you are having fun. January is almost over, which means half term is around the corner. Stay tuned for our Half term scoop with the latest family outings and days out for you and your little ones. In this week’s newsletter there is much to be enjoyed from our local libraries with arts ans craft sessions to fashion design workshops, and film nights. Don’t miss the details of our next coffee morning in February and our exclusive Mother’s Day event with celebrity guest speakers.
