Thank you to More Italy for our autumn social

Wan Soc Winter Social 2019

Thank you to everyone who came to our social event on 12th November. It was a great success and we would like to especially thank More Italy who hosted us. The food and drinks were amazing.

If there are other local businesses that would like to offer us a venue for a Spring social, please contact us on info@wansteadsociety.org.uk

We have longed sought to enhance the local environment by working with developers to ensure good design in new buildings, planted trees in public spaces and funded gardening schemes across the area. But there is little point in improving the area, if we don’t bring the people who live in it together.

This year we held a summer social in the Nightingale pub, and a winter one in More Italy. Both laid on great food and a welcoming atmosphere, and we would like to say thank you to every pub or café that has held one of our socials. We are lucky to be spoilt with such good choices in such a small area.

These are informal drinks events with free nibbles and a drink provided by us. We have been overwhelmed by support from local businesses which have offered us rooms for free and discounted rates on food and drink. This is our opportunity to thank Wanstead Society members for their support and offer a chance to meet other members for a catch up over a few informal drinks.

Can you help tidy up Nightingale Green?

Every other month we take part in the litter picks organised by Dan Slipper. Nightingale Green is further from our litter picking patch, but we aim to include on the rounds. Can you help us look after the green? Just keep an eye on it and let us know if anything needs to be done? Then please e-mail info@wansteadsociety.org.uk
