Kingsley Hall Dagenham was founded in the 1930's by Muriel & Doris Lester as an extension to their work in Bow.

The first building was a wooden hut "The Old Hall" and buildings have been extended in several stages

Many former members were remembered in the rose garden (now moved)

There are strong associations with Dudley Moore

This wall painting was done by members of the Tea Dance with teenagers from the Sydney Russell School in June 2008

My family has been associated with Kingsley Hall Dagenham and prior to that at Bow so we have

"One Family -- Two Kingsley Halls -- Three Generations"

I worked as part of the team working on the archive of documents of the Lester Sisters and the two Kingsley Halls which are held at KH Dagenham
