My name is Ken Emmons and I am co-ordinator for the KRA Web site . It is intended that the contents will supplement the Kingswood Residents newsletter and provide a vehicle for both current items that require “at this moment” attention and also for reference articles, such as the History Zone that are only updated periodically. Our Mayor provides a monthly comment on local issues. Access to our Hertfordshire Police web site is available. Alan Orchard has also made available his History of the estate, and also ongoing addendums. Another feature in this section is the mini histories of some of our older residents. Future feautures are in the pipeline and will be introduced soon. Any comments would be welcome on : firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
