From reader Roger Godbold
Shame on you!
The very first line of About Wansteadium reads “Wansteadium is a blog about all sorts of things going on in Wanstead E11”. That’s why I say “shame on you” – for ignoring that part of Wanstead that has the E12 postcode. There are some people here in Aldersbrook who jokingly mention “Independence for Aldersbrook” but I don’t expect someone writing articles about Wanstead to, apparently, encourage this independence.
I’ll put it down to ignorance or a straight-forward mistake but I really don’t expect a simple fact of this type to appear incorrectly in your blog. I first lived in Herongate Road Aldersbrook as a very small child way back in 1940 and I grew up there as a Wanstead resident. For the past 42 years I have lived in Dover Road – the next road to the one I grew up in – so I think my remarks must count for something
Response from Wansteadium: Thank you Roger for your letter. We apologise for the error – for error it was, rather than bigotry – and as a gesture of our thanks we are happy to offer you a refund on your subscription.
