From today, if you lose or find something in Wanstead, you can post details of the item via the form on this page. We will publicise details to our readership, hopefully helping to reunite items to their rightful owners.
The idea came from guerrilla gardener Marian Temple who, while tending the Wanstead Community Gardeners’ area at Wanstead Station found a hearing aid by the side of the compost bin. If it’s yours, the item was left on top of the bin and can be retrieved from there.
The Lost and Found page can be found using the links at the top of the page.
Hello Greg, thanks for your message. I have looked into your inquiry, and when last inspected, 3 trees in King’s Avenue were identified as dead and had to be removed. You can also use the report it function online: https://t.co/wmQ3RTwXM5 so the team can confirm the work.
Here is our annual roundup of the most-read stories on Wansteadium over the past year. It’s no surprise that the death of much-lamented Jill Stock was the most read story.
There are plenty of other stories too, and as is our tradition we’d like to thank everyone who has read the site over the past year, everyone who has signed up to follow our newsletter, and everyone who has sent in news items, photographs or thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org. Without you there wouldn’t really be a Wansteadium.
With Ye Traditional Boxing Day Walk in Wanstead Park being rained off, it’s time for the other tradition – the Wansteadium Christmas puzzle. Send pics of completed grids to email@example.com for max kudos. Answers later in the week.
