This years membership is waved- spend your cash in the High St instead

High Steet

About now the Society would ask its members to re-new. But not this year. If you are a member from 2019-2020, we will roll it forward to 2021.

The COVID crises has affected us all, and we know that with tough times ahead, every penny counts.

That’s why we will give all our members a years free membership, if they want it.

If you would like to donate to our volunteer organisation we will be truly grateful. However, if you have any spare cash. Spend it on the High Street in one of our wonderful shops. The lockdown has been extreme for these businesses and we want to do all we can to support them. Lets shop local. Save our shops. And help the High St thrive.

Welcome 2020 and Thank You


A very happy new year to all our members, and on behalf of the Society we would like to thank all those businesses in Wanstead, their staff and suppliers that stayed open throughout the festive period.

We have a fantastic High Street full of shops, bars and restaurants. They stay open so we can enjoy our Christmas period. So from all of us, to all of the businesses in Wanstead – thank you.

Wanstead Society at Wanstead Festival – and our AGM

We WAN FEST 2019would like to thank everyone that came to see us at this years 2019 Wanstead Festival – surely the hottest one yet! A great community day where we were able to meet new members, and sell some 2020 calendars. Also thanks to Abbas from Whipps Cross who stayed for the day to give people information about plans for the hospital site.

Our AGM is Saturday 21st September in Wanstead House from 1pm and we welcome any members that would like to attend.
