Sir Malcolm Rifkind hosts Kensington & Chelsea Chamber of Commerce Summer Party at House of Commons

A wonderful evening to network and an excuse to study the fine architecture of the Houses of Parliament. Wine and canapes on the Pavillion Terrace overlooking the Thames, with the sunlight on St Thomas’ Hospital, the Eye and other architectural delights of London.

A mixture of members and members guests were entertained by Malcolm (a witty speech-maker) and Greg Hands MP. Members from other Chambers were present too – the Terrace, balmy evening and drink made for a most convivial and easy networking evening. Thanks must go to Julia Walker-Smith who organised the event, with about 200 attending.

The Kensington Magazine celebrates 5 years with a Party at The Roof Gardens

A sure sign of a good party is when your mother wakes up the next morning and demands Neurofen! The Roof Gardens hosted a wonderful party to celebrate our Fifth Anniversary. The champagne flowed, the Mayor of Kensington & Chelsea spoke and the even the flamingos flaunced their stuff. Residents, clients, friends and family all helped to make this an occasion to remember. Roll on the 10th Anniversary!  (written by Lucy Elliott)

Lucy’s party on 11th April celebrating The Kensington Magazine’s fifth anniversary was a glorious and glamorous affair, given in the Roof Gardens. A truly British celebration with mini portions of fish and chips, baby beef-burgers and sticky-toffee puddings and the champagne flowed freely.  It always has up there.  In the early 1930s,when the Roof Gardens were first planted, my husband’s grandmother, Lady Perry-Robinson loved to open them with the Mayor of Kensington, as a major event of the London Season. It was no surprise that at Lucy’s party the current Mayor,Councillor Julie Mills, enthused publicly about how the magazine has bound us all as a community. Pink as the flamingoes on the pond, Lucy seemed overwhelmed by the praise. Most of us simply agreed with the Mayor!  (written by Maria Perry.  A fuller version of her account will appear  in the May edition)
