The sun shone brightly for our annual outing to the Wanstead Festival which helped pull in record crowds too! The festival has been going, in one form or another, since 2003 and this was our chance to meet lots of new members and experience a great community get together. We must be one of only a handful of areas within London that has their own fringe and festival. But we have a lot of local talent to showcase and this event, now in its 15th year, marks the end of a week Wanstead based activities called “the Wanstead Fringe”. Well done to everyone who took part and long may this local gem continue.
2019 Calendars fly off the shelf
Each year the Society produces a calendar with photos generously supplied by Galley 84’s Geoff Wilkinson. Each year the calendar has been sponsored by Petty Soon and Prestwich which means any profits we make are our own.
This year we took a batch to the Wanstead Festival, and promptly sold out. The new black and white images of Wanstead proved an arty success and were thank both Geoff and Petty Sons for their support.
If you would like a Wanstead Society 2019 calendar there are some still on sale in Bennet’s the Newsagent – but hurry, they are running out fast. Alternatively, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
