Here it is – the Wanstead Gift List Top 12

Thanks for everyone’s nominations for the inaugural Wanstead Gift List, a hunt for decent presents on sale in Wanstead. Through a process of whittling and sifting, the nominations have been reduced to this, the final top 12.  Readers of Wansteadium are invited to support the viability of our local community by buying some or all of these items. Or some others. But you get the point.
