I'm glad someone has listed the events in the one world month, the poster on Beech street/Prescot road only went up the thursday or friday of last week (bit short notice) and the kensington regeneration website has bugger all about it even though it is probably one of the best things they do,but not a sniff about it, no text blasts, Nowt, nix, nada.......the summer fun day looks good though
