What’s happened this fortnight 6th January 2019

We would like to wish you all a healthy and happy New Year 2019.  2018 has seen some improvements to Kilburn with new shops and restaurants openings, the resurfacing of Kilburn High Road and of course the re-opening of our Theatre and Cinema.

With your help, we can make Kilburn better, by shopping and eating locally, reporting street issues and using our wonderful community facilities.

We have several communtiy centres that provide a wealth of activities, free or low cost, that could help you stay fit and healthy and meet your neighbours. Below are links so you can explore.
