Did you know April is National Kite Month? It started as an American tradition, but it’s one we’re happy to adopt over here!

And with clear blue skies and not much other celestial activity going on over the weekend (due to the Icelandic volcano eruption grounding all flights into and out of the UK) it was an ideal time to get outside with a kite.

Did you launch your kite over the weekend at “Kite Hill” on Hampstead Heath, on Clapham Common or one of the London’s other open spaces? If so, we want to know about it.

Tell us where you think is London’s best spot for kite flying?

    Loveing these blue skies: I just about managed to get a small kite going on Hamstead HEath at the weekend. It’s a really special feeling when your kite is the only thing in the sky!!!!
