This year Wansteadium is minded to boycott photographs of bluebells in Wanstead Park – we don’t want to be accused of encouraging people to walk on the bulbs to get pictures… walking on them destroys the flowers, compacts the soil, damages bulbs and can prevent flowers growing in future years. We know it’s a bit miserable, but we think the boycott is the right thing to do.
Got to cherish the
passive aggressive sarcasm acerbic wit displayed by this spate of posters attached to decrepit vehicles parked on Aldersbrook streets.
People of Wanstead. It’s time, if you haven’t already done it, to take part in the hard-won Redbridge consultation on the future of parking in Wanstead.
Rumours that Superdrug is coming to Wanstead have been confirmed by a job advert published by the company. They are thought to be lined up for the site previously occupied by the HSBC and Londis. (Spotted by Robespierre)
Wanstead’s lamented Londis, and its neighbour, the
missing Midland hollowed HSBC are being redeveloped. And from being nosy it looks as if it’s all going to be one big premises. It’s a pretty large space inside – almost too big for a shop. But probably the right size for a big restaurant. Offers of intelligence are welcome in the usual manner.
Wanstead’s newest estate agents, Stow Brothers, is now open and looking good. As always with new ventures on the High Street, we wish it well.
