Elinor James, Secretary

My husband and I moved to Wanstead in 1999, initially for its proximity to the M11 and thus to our home in Northamptonshire where we intended to retire. But life doesn’t go according to plan… and our enjoyment of living here and the charm of Wanstead made
the decision to stay an obvious one. I am pleased to be involved with the Wanstead Society and support its aim to protect and enhance our locality whilst encouraging good design and promoting the very best in development.

I am also a member of the Library’s Monday morning reading group.
