THINK apologise to our readers for our lengthy absence since last October and also for the technical difficulties we had been having with our site – all resolved now but the many problems and issues many in our community face still go on.
Our blog reached the milestone of its second birthday in May, but this was also a month before the second anniversary of Grenfell, so no celebrations here.
In our posts coming up, we will of course, have much more to say on this; we are not going to sit back and let matters (or in some cases people), lie.
This, for now, is just a reintroductory post – but we hope that many in and who support our community can feel rest assured (and a few ill-meaning others feel discomforted by) the fact that the only changes to our blog will be more posts – load of posts coming up of course- but also some new features such as our “Local Voices” residents regular guest posts which will be coming soon
As usual, some of our posts will,be informative, some sad, some angry, some personal and of course, others humorous.
Some may like to think they can go back to “business as usual” but so can THINK! In fact we are doing more than ever before. As well as North Kensington and RBKC we also are going to be covering many issues in communities near us or relating to our own matters.
It’s good to have our blog back, but we have been through difficult times and we wouldn’t be able to do it without the support of friends, loved ones, campaigners, groups and other communities – so we say a huge thank you all for your support – it means a lot to us.
We also remind people that yesterday was the 14tb of August, 26 months on since our community lost 72 of our own in the Grenfell Tower fire, some were friends, others were acquaintances. They all deserved to be remembered, our community is rraumatised and we intend to go on campaigning, supporting others campaigning and supporting each other.
