Residents are invited to take part in a series of free health and wellbeing workshops as part of ‘Feel Good Fortnight’ at Hook and Chessington Library between Thursday 21 January and Wednesday 3 February.

From family drumming workshops to pilates taster sessions, the aim of the Fortnight is to inspire everyone to feel happy, healthy and confident.

Councillor Cathy Roberts, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Health at Kingston Council, said:
“Feel Good Fortnight offers a brilliant opportunity to try lots of different activities for free, with a mixture of events for both adults and children. What better way to start the new year than with events that bring the community together to feel good both physically and mentally.

“There’s a whole host of different activities to take part in – you can choose to relax and listen to stories for grown ups, get top tips on how to stop smoking and even join in on a group singing lesson. There’s truly something for everyone, book your place, come along and try something new.”

Award ceremony celebrates achievements of Kingston children with Special Educational Needs

James Giles




Children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities in Kingston and Richmond have been given recognition for their accomplishments at an awards ceremony.

The awards run by Kingston and Richmond’s social enterprise Achieving for Children (AfC) took place at Clarendon School in Hampton on 20 January. The event is aimed at celebrating the achievements of local children and young people and their impact they have had in inspiring other children, young people and their families.

People from across the two boroughs were invited to nominate an individual or group of children and young people they felt had done something special under four different categories; ‘impact’, ‘inspiration’,‘personal achievement’ and ‘recognition’.

The AfC team received over 100 entries for judging. Nominations were judged by panels made up of a parent, professional and a young person. Twenty nominations were selected as outstanding by the panels.

Cllr Richard Hudson, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Children’s Social Care and Health at Kingston Council, said:

“Having an awards ceremony to recognise the hard work of these individuals is a fantastic idea and are a great way of helping those with special educational needs gain self-confidence. I am confident that they are hugely appreciated by those who receive an award.”
