The Royal Borough is holding a special Community Tea party on Sunday 8th July 2018 in Kensington Town Hall to celebrate the 100-year anniversary of Women gaining the Vote.  Over 400 older residents from across the Royal Borough will receive invitations to attend a memorable afternoon in the uniquely decorated Grant hall.  The event has been organized by a team of volunteers from the police, council and the voluntary sector. 

The activities will also include two seminars in North Kensington focusing on challenges and achievements and an Intergeneration Open Day in the National Army Museum in Chelsea.
We are asking the local businesses to support this community event with contributions of food, soft drinks and donations to help guarantee the success of this unique opportunity of bringing the communities together.
