Spare a thought this weekend for Wanstead’s Gabrielle Collard (@dollycreative)Â who is about to embark on a Land’s End to John O’Groats cycle ride (yes, that’s right, uphill). Â She is planning to complete the 860-mile ride in 17 days, all in the aid of the Depression Alliance and the Maria Falco Trust. Â You can follow her progress on her site, or donate if you wish through her JustGiving page.
Queen’s British Steak House and Grill, the rather stylish-looking venture in the former British Queen pub on New Wanstead, will be opening on 18 September, Wansteadium can confirm.Â It’s been reported that it’s the owners of the even-more stylish-looking Blue Boar in Abridge who are behind the plan; the website for the restaurant is not yet giving much away – and certainly not anything as detailed as menus and prices. More details to follow when available…
