Not the end of the world - Kensington & Chelsea News

Another story for which I needed to get out of the office 'on assignment'.

Council estate by the river in Kensington called World's End. Plans by the council are under way to invest a million pounds to make the whole complex safer and more resident-friendly.

But residents, at least the ones I spoke to, do not seem very enthusiastic about it, and they say that the proposed changes will change the estate forever, assimilating it with the rest of the area, a very exclusive part of London.

Angry, and very chatty, mothers claim their kids won't have any adequate space to play, the rumours of anti-social behaviour are far from reality, money could be spent better, and they will do whatever it takes to stop the initiative.

They eventually tell me they would chain their kids and themselves to the square's lamp posts to prevent work to start.....Spicy!
