Every year a village collection has been made to help support the Kingsley Community Association and Kingsley News, which is delivered, free of charge, to homes in Kingsley. Last year this raised approximately £850- for which we would like to say thank you. The suggested donation is £5 per household, and £3 for pensioners or those on low income. Although we would very much appreciate it if anyone were able and willing to donate more than this.

In previous years we have made door to door visits in order to pick up donations. However this is a major burden on our volunteers and we would therefore like to change our collection process.

Also a number of people have asked whether it would be possible to donate online, or pay directly into the bank.

This year we would like to offer a number of ways to donate:
1. To pay directly into the KCA bank account, our details are;
Bank :- Natwest;
Account name :- Kingsley Community Association
Sort code :- 53-70-21
Account no. :- 60177683
Payment Reference :- KCA donation
Payment can be via a single payment or, if you prefer, you can set up an annual standing order with your bank.

2. Donations can also be placed in the collection box at the community centre or handed in at Holland's Pharmacy, who I would like to thank for offering to do this.

3. They can also be posted to 58 Beechview Road, Kingsley WA6 8DG - Please make cheques payable to "Kingsley Community Association".

GIFT AID - Please note that due administrative requirements of the Gift Aid scheme and the small size of most of the donations, we will NOT be claiming gift aid on these donations. Should however anyone wish to donate more than £100, then arrangements can be made for gift aid to apply. Please contact Paul Atkinson (our Treasurer) on 01928 787971 for details.

Please note that on behalf of the KCA, I would like to thank everyone for any donations.

Mike Butler KCA Chairman

In 1976, while thinking of ways of raising the money to build a Community Centre, the idea of putting on a fund raising show came about.

So a cabaret, Kingsley style, sort of medieval, home grown and devised with the help of an odd professional (to help give a bit of class) was written as the first show.

It was such a success that more shows followed, the money was raised and the Community Centre was built.

Plus, an amateur dramatic society was born!

The first meeting of the group was in December 1976, the name was chosen and a draft constitution agreed. It was decided that two plays and a pantomime would be performed each year.

The first performance by the group was in April 1977 when two one-act plays were performed. History of the drama group has even been written about by John Birtles.

Tickets for performances can be purchased online at: http://boxoffice.kingsleyplayers.co.uk/

Mid-Cheshire Astronimical group logo

 

Mid-Cheshire Astronomical Group

Mid-Cheshire Astronomical Group was founded in February 2013. Set up by a group of keen amateur astronomers, its goal is to provide a platform for everybody in the Mid-Cheshire area with an interest in astronomy to go out observing and enjoy the incredible things the universe has to offer. 

You do NOT need  any prior knowledge or equipment – just an interest in the cosmos and enthusiasm to learn about it!

In March 2015 the club relocated its base to Delamere Forest in order to take advantage of some of the darkest skies in Cheshire. 

Meetings

Catering for astronomers of any age, interest or experience the club meets on the last Friday of every month in the Forest Explorers classroom (behind the visitors centre).

Meetings start at 7.30pm and finish at 9.30pm, with group observing in the Old Pale car park afterwards if it’s clear.
