Kensington`s Swan (or Flamingo) Song by Jas (Blog 255)

April 29, 2014 • News

We said a final farewell to the Kensington buildings, in the old Moments Ballroom last weekend, with a mega-party. The flamingo icon will be used no more – along with the birds themselves who are rumoured to have been relocated to a warmer climate. The party was sponsored by Avination.

London Team members (above) were a little more sensibly dressed than the guests (below). But , Sarah, London Tube host, ( right) seemed oblivious of her unconscious husband as she danced!

“Kensington Gardens fixes everything, When you’re all I see.
When the world slips away,Kensington Gardens fixes everything,
Fixes everything -Always.”

“Running down Kensington High Street-just got a letter in the mail.

This is no longer my street,

If you look in the paper you`ll find there`s a room up for sale.”

Peter Pan statue in Kensington Gardens in the City of Westminster in London, spring 2013 (11)
Peter Pan, which was  originally written as a play by J.M. Barrie, had an interesting connection to the area. Barrie, who lived near Kensington Gardens and took his morning stroll there, added the location to his play. He described the “Lost Boys” as  a group of young boys who fell out of their prams when their mothers were taking them through Kensington Gardens. They became lost forever in the park.The statue of Peter(above)  placed there (in real life) is to remind us of this.

We had our own statues in Kensington in the London Sims, along with St Mary Abbots church.

RIP Kensington – we remember you with fond thoughts.

But, don`t despair, the London Sims aren`t downsizing. We have just opened a brand new sim. “London Nights” is  adult-rated and will be featuring the Venus and Mars strip bars – along with pr0viding a new home for Northcliffe Coyotes. Keep reading my blogs for more news and pics about this.
