My name is Ken Emmons and as co-cordinator I welcome you to this KRA website. Those that have been involved with its production hope it will provide a supplementary means of keeping members “in the loop”. It is intended that this independently edited and locally sponsored site will supplement our monthly news letter and will provide a vehicle for both current items that require immediate attention, and archival items that will be yours for reference at any time. The Menu to the right of the Home page, shows those pages available -which include In Committee, Local History and Social comment, a monthly news page from our elected Mayor, Social events,Your councillors, Lucky House Draw,archival issues of the KRA newsletter and A-Z contact details. Our 3 local Schools, Neighbourhood Police team, Watford Borough Council and Hertfordshire County Council all have direct links on the front page. We are learning “on the job”, so any comment via this email address would be very welcome. email@example.com
My name is Alan Orchard a long time resident of Kingswood. The History Zone categories to the right include a history of the estate till year 2,000 and an ongoing up-to-date Social Comment. The second Zone is comprised of interviews of past and present older residents and contain their personal memories of life before 1963, hence the title “50 years ago today”. These are events that require recording as in many cases the interviewee had forgotten the event and will not be available to recall it in a few years time. I wish I had asked my parents more about their younger days. I would be pleased to hear from anyone who has experiences so far not covered. A chat over a cup of tea may bring back events you thought long lost. This has been the result in a number of cases. Nothing goes in that is not agreed and an alias can be used to protect your privacy. I know of some residents who have logged on and enjoyed the story’s. Why not let them enjoy yours.
Stop Press. A new entry in the “50 years ago today” section details some young peoples memories of a Word War . Hopefully a one off chance to experience the considerable traumas resulting from 5 years of threat.
