Kids' TV Stars Visit West Hill Primary

A TV crew and the presenters of Channel 5’s Milkshake! turned up at West Hill Primary in Wandsworth this week. The school is to be featured in a programme that is to be broadcast next month

Nathan, Kiana and Kiera spent the morning at the school to celebrate Black History month which takes place in October.

Mrs Healy the Co-Headteacher commented, “The children thoroughly enjoyed listening to the stories and are all very excited about the prospect of being on Channel 5 for their five minutes of fame.”

The presenters visited West Hill to share some multicultural stories with the children in Key Stage 1. The children aged between 5 and 7 were filmed in the school’s Creative Hub listening to the stories and having fun with their TV heroes.

Lilly in Year 1 was delighted that the TV stars came to visit her school saying, “The stories they read us were so fun”.

Another Year 1 child Sayt said, “We laughed a lot when they read us the stories about the fruit”.

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you’d like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT.
