So it really does look like farewell to the Currant – we didn’t jump on the initial indications that something was awry last week, just in case – but it looks like the To Let sign is staying. To the team, thank you for your efforts over the past couple of years.
Fans of the Currant’s cakes might want to know that local baker Heron’s Nest is still operating and can be contacted via Facebook. It was Heron’s Nest which brought a tear to BBC cricket correspondent Jonathan Agnew’s eye last summer by making a Manuka honey cake – apparently one of the finest creations to have reached the Test Match Special commentary box.

Got asked to make a cake for manuka honey fan and voice of cricket, Jonathan Agnew at #testmatchspecial during Day 1 of the England v India Test Match at the Oval today. Came up with this Honey & Lavender cake with a golden honeycomb effect with bees and hexagons. Got instant feedback as anticipated devouring it on air for nearly half an hour!!! Not sure who was more excited, me or my cricket loving husband! #pablolondon #aggers #manukahoney #manuka #hollandandbarrett #englandindia #theoval #testmatch
At the other end of the High Street, the former Elizabeth Pryce letting agent, which is now part of Keaton’s, is being fitted out by Bell’s Blinds, a local chain. Good luck to them in their new venture. White wooden blinds and plantation shutters certainly are very Wanstead at the moment.
