As part of our on-going commitment to our community, we will be sharing the latest news, events and interesting stories coming from the local people, businesses and places within Walthamstow, Wanstead, and surrounding areas.
Carefree Kids, a therapeutic organisation, is designed to improve emotional well-being. We help children and young people at their schools through play, art and drama therapy, delivered by trained volunteers. We also support parents and carers.
Inviting people to send in poems about families - in all their aspects - brings up moving material. The 123 poems we received for our first ever poetry competition makes it clear that most emotions are evoked by putting feelings, thoughts and memories about this topic into words. The top 30 poems were published in a beautifully produced booklet which every winning poet received.
The very generous estate agents Stow Brothers have made this project possible with their active interest in small local community organisations and their financial and publicity support. It has been encouraging and pleasurable to work with them.
"I'd like to thank everybody at SB Wanstead for finding me lovely tenants for my house. I dealt mainly with Kenny, the boss, who was excellent but also dealt with the rest of the Wanstead team who I found to be communicative, friendly and professional. I would definitely recommend SB to other landlords. They have a very client focussed approach and genuinely want to make their clients happy. Oh, and they make a mean cup of coffee!! "
