Wanstead’s blue period

Wanstead Park’s bluebells are on the brink of their magnificence. The warnings to visitors of the damage that can be done by stepping off the path have been reinforced – though are still not clear enough for some.

Each year some of the bluebells are damaged by people treading on them, or other bulbs beneath the surface which are not visible, usually for reasons of Instagram. New signs put up by the Epping Forest managers explain the damage but are still not quite explicit enough for some park lovers who have added their own messages.

Meanwhile the Wanstead Art Group is starting a weeklong show and series of bluebell related events at nearby St Gabriel’s church. Details below.
