The much celebrated Wanstead Magazine Club, which saves unloved but otherwise excellent magazines and distributes them in public places in the interests of general improvement, has had a recharge with fresh stocks of lush magazines including National Geographic, Monocle, Which?, and lots more. The current crop is in the Larder, but more will be added to our regular haunts – watch our @Wansteadium Twitter feed for details.
Meanwhile, eyes were attracted by this seemingly new and exciting contribution: a big glossy magazine called Wanstead Life. How exciting! Until, upon reading, it turns out there is just one article about Wanstead, and that’s concerning an exhibition about Wanstead Flats, though neighbouring areas were also mentioned. (It seems this is not to be confused with the similarly named West Essex Life.)
