Petition RBKC for more street benches in North Kensington

Please dowload the PDF of the petition by clicking here, print it, get it signed by friends, family and colleagues, then return the completed sheet to

Disability Action Group
147 Highlever Road
London W10 6PH

Lead Petitioner: Sue Warren sue@physicslab.co.uk

This petition is supported by the K&C Labour Party Disability Action Group and ADKC.

In North Kensington the wards of Colville, Dalgarno, Golborne, Norland, Notting Dale and St. Helen’s have a significant number of residents over the age of 65 years and a high percentage of residents with long term limiting illness (Public Health England 2017). In these wards a cause of concern for many residents with restricted mobility is the lack of street benches. We, the undersigned residents of Kensington & Chelsea, request that the Council consider this Petition at a full council meeting and makes resources available to install benches in these six wards in consultation with local residents and groups representing the interests of those with restricted mobility and sets out a timescale for the implementation of this project.

Dictating To The Estate-A play about the events leading up to the Grenfell Tower fire


Dear All,

As some of you may know, I have written a play about the events leading up to the Grenfell Tower fire, which will be performed in two public readings at the Playground Theatre in Latimer Road next month. The play is a documentary play, and uses contemporary blogs, emails and Council records to place these events in the context of austerity, deregulation, estate regeneration and local activism. More details can be found by clicking here.

If you’d like to donate towards the production, there is a crowdfunding page here.

All the best, Nathaniel.

Lampedusa Gateway to Europe Event

A lecture by Dr. Pietro Bartolo in the occasion of the presentation of his book Lampedura Gateway to Europe, written together with Lidia Tilotta. The event will take place on Monday, 26th of November, at the King’s College in the Safra Lecture Theatre (ground floor, King’s building, Strand) at 6.30 pm.

Details on Eventbrite.

Mr. Pietro Bartolo is the doctor of the Italian island of Lampedusa, the European territory closest to Libya, which has become a prime transit point for migrants from Africa, the Middle East and Asia wanting to enter Europe.

Mr Bartolo has published a book, “Lampedusa Gateway to Europe”, which is the essential testimony of his work for twenty-five years on the front line of perhaps the largest mass migration in human history.

While he continues with his profession in Lampedusa, he has decided to embark into a campaign to raise awareness on immigration which promotes acceptance and integration of migrants. That is taking him around Italy and Europe, in schools, universities, no profit organizations and public meetings. His testimony is also part of a Italian documentary, “ Fire at sea” , which was awarded with the Golden Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival.

Fundraiser for the Kensington & Chelsea Refugees Welcome Committee

The RBKC Refugees Welcome Committee, in partnership with local charity Migrants Organise, invites you for an evening of powerful testimony, encouraging us to take action in our communities. Fundraising Event at the Mosaic Room in Earl’s Court on 30th November 2018 from 6.30PM-9PM.

Campaign Day-Sat 3 November 2018

This Saturday 3 November 2018 is a Labour Party “National Day of Action” and we would be delighted for you to join us.

We will be holding a street stall in Earl’s Court, our most marginal ward, from 10am until lunchtime where we will be talking to local residents and distributing leaflets.

We are meeting outside Earl’s Court tube station (Earl’s Court Road entrance) at 10am and erecting the stall nearby.

We were only 100 votes off winning Earl’s Court in the local elections this year so a continuous Labour presence is vital. We hope you can come and support our “shadow councillors” Bruno de Florence and Sam Batra in the ward.
