Monday 8 December: Christmas Party.
There will be our usual extras (more food, good raffle). And did you know there was a fireworks tower on the site of the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens? It burned down – and a very fine church was built on the site: St. Peter’s, Vauxhall. Now a new book shares the rest of the St Peter’s story, and the North Lambeth team will tell us how they wrote it.
Don’t forget to bring your £3.00 annual subscription if you haven’t paid already.
Events are normally held on the third Monday evening in the month.
6.45 for 7.15pm at the Durning Library. Light refreshments. Everyone welcome.
No admission charge, but a £2 donation towards costs is invited.
SATURDAY, 6 DECEMBER – FUN DAY/CONSULTATION DAY
Watch this space for further details……………………..
FUNDRAISING FOR THE FRIENDS OF THE DURNING LIBRARY
After the very successful Table Top Sale on 14 June, where we raised over £250, thanks mainly to Cathy Preece and the Kennington Companions, Cathy has kindly offered to continue selling unwanted books, CDs, DVDs, Blue Rays and Amazon games to help raise funds for us. Please make every effort to support this, either by bringing your donations to the blue bin in the Library or delivering to Cathy direct. Please contact KenningtonCompanions@gmail.com if you wish to do that or have any questionsSALES OF BOOKS, CDs, DVDs, ETC
DO PLEASE CONTINUE TO DONATE
IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM
After James Taylor’s fascinating talk on 17 November, many will be shocked to learn that government cuts to IWM could mean 80 job losses, curtailing schools visits and – incredibly – dismantling the library.

Please give if you can! The library is a collection point for Kennington Association’s annual Secret Santa scheme. Groceries vouchers are given to families who need help. These are nominated by local early years professionals, and we are not told who they are – hence Secret Santa.
Donations large or small welcomed, by cash or cheque [made out to Kennington Association (Secret Santa)].
