OVERNIGHT TRIP! 26th / 27th March 2022

**Bookings have now closed for this trip**

We are thrilled to announce we are offering adult carers the chance to enjoy a special weekend respite break in 2022. Over two days and one night we will explore the charms of west England as we journey back in time to the legend of King Arthur and the Holy Grail.

Cost: The cost of this trip is £25 per carer, payable in March 2022. We are extremely grateful to Carers Trust whose generous funding has allowed us to offer this weekend break for carers at such a reduced cost. 

How to Book:  If you would like to apply for a place on this trip, please complete either the online Registration Form or the paper registration form (request paper copy). We can only accept registrations via the online registration form (link above) or via a paper form. Please do not send your request over email. Payment is NOT required at this stage.

Deadline for submitting your registration form is 7th Jan 2022.



Join a KCN Reading Friends Group!

A national scheme being run by Kingston Libraries
Free via zoom

More information
Reading Friends is designed to tackle loneliness and social isolation by bringing people together to read, share stories, chat and have fun.  A Reading Befriender holds regular one-to-one or small group sessions that begin with the reading of a poem, short story, letter or other piece of text to spark conversation and connect people socially. It is different to a structured book group as there is no reading to do beforehand. You don’t need to be an expert in literature – simply have a love of reading you would like to share to make a difference in your local community.
If you are interested in joining a KCN Reading Friends group with other carers in the borough please email Lou at
