Wanstead news roundup, 24.11.10; After the sauna? Plus more UFO madness, and Christmas


• Wansteadium reader Jana writes:

Has it reopened? The ‘Wanstead Sauna‘ sign has recently been replaced by one that says something like ‘Men’s Grooming Centre’… Now, I might be reading too much into this.. but… hmmmm. Perhaps a male Wansteadium reader can pop along to see what’s on offer and report back!

• Internet apparently consumed by Wanstead UFO madness, which you read about here first (or possibly second).

• Chemical spill was sugar

• Photos from the Take Back Wanstead Flats event held on Sunday are on Flickr here.

• A shrewd move from Wanstead children’s clothes and shoe shop Knock Down Ginger – from the New Year it will be offering children’s haircutting too. Meanwhile, the Robins Pie and Mash shop has reopened after being attacked by arsonists.

• The Wanstead Christmas lights are being switched on this Friday evening at 4.30pm on George Green (outside Wanstead Tube). Children, a tree, the Salvation Army band, and even (according to current forecasts) the possibility of some snow.

  1. Re The Wanstead Sauna.

    I think the new tenants are a little less dubious than the previous ones. There is another identical shop in Walthamstow, which looks more salubrious, i.e. genuine massages rather than “massages with extras”

  2. Jana I am always up for a challenge and pleased to report back to the wantsteadium readers about my recent visis.. I noted they offer sports massage as an avid golfer my back is not as good as I would like. The place is clean with what looks like a tardos sun bed, I pre-booked my massage and can say the lady was very professional and knowlegeable about sports matters, the massage was 1st class although a little on the pricey side at £80..highly reccomend the place and no smut at all..the new owners are diff on the right track here…



  3. A male grooming centre that’s open at 02:30 AM on Monday January 3rd 2011!!?? You’ll be telling me you believe in 8 legged flying pigs next!
