HOW THE ASSOCIATION WORKS
The Association is managed by a Chairman and Executive Committee, who are elected at the Annual General Meeting (AGM).
The Committee meets several times a year to deal with the issues raised by members, organise events, arrange the AGM and mount campaigns when required. If you belong to the Association and have a concern or a proposal about the neighbourhood, contact us and it will be put on the agenda for discussion at the next meeting.
KCRA members can also attend the AGM, usually held in early April, when they can raise any concerns they have, talk to the committee, meet their local councillors and neighbourhood police as well as enjoy a drink with fellow residents.

The Association represents the rights and interests of residents living in the Kensington Court area. It responds to their concerns. It keeps them informed on important local issues and news. It lobbies on their behalf with the Council and other authorities. It monitors and, if necessary, objects to planning applications that affect this community. It seeks to improve the quality of life of our neighbourhood. Its aim is to make this corner of Kensington as pleasant and as friendly a place as possible.
It holds a Street Party every September, which is supported by local restaurants and businesses.
KCRA members also get attractive discounts at many local restaurants, like Cote Bistro, Ottoemezzo and the Roof Gardens; and businesses, including Gallery 19, kallkwik and Imenio.
So, if you are a resident of Kensington Court, why not help us and yourself by becoming a member. It costs only £5, which you will get back when you claim your first discount.
