    This was a great space for a conference. Very spacious auditorium, an ample sized stage and great mingling area.

    I had to speak to a planning officer who I couldn't get hold of by phone or email. My last resort was to turn up at town Hall to get a none arranged face to face meeting. Apparently this is not possible anymore. I had to sit at a desk in the reception area, use their internal phone system which directed me to the same voicemail I got from my own mobile from my office. A waste of time and people should start working from their office instead of remotely.

    Attended Kensington doll house festival and it was nice. We got a place in the big room where it was much cooler than the others.
