Before we all get too carried away enjoying the August sunshine… or staying up late to watch the Olympics (guilty!), here are few key dates to add to diary ready for the new term at Descendants. This September Descendants celebrates 23 years since it was established. I’m sure you will all agree that this as massive achievement, so huge congratulations to Margaret, the co-founders, the committee and all Descendants members past and present. Here’s to the next 23 years!
