The mystery of Wanstead’s random flag appearances has returned, with a St George’s Cross appearing atop a tree on the Green, Wanstead. First spotted by Wanstead tweeter @Gradiate, who posted the following picture and comment:
Someone has placed a St Georges cross up an ancient tree near my house – looks beautiful in the sun.
Also later reported by the Wanstead Guardian, here, which adds the back story of the spate of mystery flags on Wanstead golf course last year.
The Wanstead Village Directory April edition is out with the shock news that Belgique – the fancy cafe on Cambridge Park – is now offering breakfast delivered to your door on Saturdays or Sundays.
Prices aren’t too bad either. There’s a minimum spend of Â£7.50, and you can order either a la carte, or from set menus, which range from Â£9.95 to Â£99. The latter includes the Sunday Times and a dozen red roses. It’s not clear from the website (or the small print) how much the charge for delivery is, but apart from that, the only downside is that it’s only available until 11am.
The Wanstead Society is inviting people to join it in replanting Nightingale Green on Saturday.

It says the green is “looking rather shabby and unloved”, so is inviting people to turn up outside the Nightingale Pub at 11am on Saturday to join in planting news plants and shrubs in the “currently rather bare” beds.
