Kingsway Litter Pick (The Big Tidy Up)

Friday, September 12th, 2014 by Clive

Following the 2013 Litter Pick organised by the Kingsway Residents Association, and having received many enquiries from local folk about a similar exercise, I am pleased to announce that the City Council is working with Quedgeley Parish Council to hold a litter picking event at Kingsway on Monday 27th October at 9:30am.

The event is known as the Big Tidy Up (part of a Keep Britain Tidy campaign), and we are asking for volunteers to join us.

We will meet at 9.30am at Kingsway Community Centre. We will provide high-vis tabards, litter pickers, gloves and bags, and will arrange for the bags to be collected after the event.

OFSTED Registered Nanny Available

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014 by Amy


My name is Amy and I live and work as a nanny in Kingsway.

I am currently employed by a lovely local family, but due to the arrival of a new baby in October and the mother taking maternity leave from work, they will no longer require a nanny.

I am therefore looking for a new position from September onwards (live out).

I have lots of experience working with children of all ages and adore the job that I do.

I have a level 3 qualification in children’s care, learning and development, I am Paediatric First Aid trained and have my own public liability insurance, as well as a current DBS Check. I am also an OFSTED registered childcare provider so can accept childcare vouchers.

I can provide excellent references and would be very happy to answer any questions. I can be contacted on: 0793-9449772

Many Thanks,

Your first session is completely FREE!

I will be running these sessions:

Quedgeley Community Centre, School Lane: Friday  9.40am – 10.20am
