As part of our on-going commitment to the local communities that sit around our offices, we will be sharing the latest news, events and interesting stories coming from the local people, businesses and places within Walthamstow and Wanstead.
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.
"The Stow Brothers have been an excellent estate agent from start to finish, they made the whole process straight forward and stress free. I was left extremely impressed by how quickly the Stow Brothers (Marcus, the photographer, Ben, Claudia and Kenny) dealt with my flat sale and by how professional, friendly and helpful they were at all times. I am so grateful to Stow Brothers for selling my flat so quickly, after having a sale fall through with another agent, so i could continue with my planned onward purchase. I would recommend them to anyone. "
