Filming going on this week for The Death & Life of John F Donovan about a American actor (Kit Harington) & his controversial correspondence with an English schoolboy. Forest is standing in for the English school. Big name cast according to IMDB (Natalie Portman, Kathy Bates, Thandie Newton, Susan Sarandon, Michael Gambon). Not sure of any of the big name actors on location here.
Who would have thought the old Argus Lighting shop on George Lane would turn into something useful? But lo and behold, a brand new Co-op, looking stylish in 2017 regulation grey.
Wanstead’s Ginger Pig is closed on Monday because of a break in.
Sorry to announce that our Wanstead shop won't be open today due to a break in. Apologies for any inconvenience, we will be back ASAP.

A spokesman told the Wanstead Guardian:
“Our priority is establishing what’s happened and the situation inside the shop. The police are involved and they are dealing with it now. But we want to try to reopen as soon as possible.”
The attention to detail on the outside of this extension on Grosvenor Road is something to behold. Congratulations to owner, architect and builder.
