A radical suggestion from Wansteadium reader Dan:
Like most people I am missing my family and social interaction. One key area is having a meal and meeting friends and family for a light drink and chat.
Given the social distancing constraints this has meant closing all of our lovely bars and restaurants in Wanstead.
If social distancing restrictions lift many of our bars and restaurants are too small to allow for effective social distancing. However if we allow the high street to close during evenings during the summer months we could go alfresco using the pavement for tables and the road as a walkway for pedestrians. Do you think this is something we could get some support from the local community. Happy to chat through with anyone.
