Seymour Road alotments

As we emerge from the pandemic, many people have expressed a desire for the UK’s recovery to be one which creates a greener, cleaner, more caring society, where reversing climate change takes a higher priority.

So there seems no better time for Waltham Forest to consider how growing food within the Borough might be prioritised in the years ahead.

Your opinion on this is important. Whether you already grow your own fruit and vegetables, have always wanted to but don’t know how, or have never considered it, we’d like to hear from you.

New library set to open

Wood Street Library CGI

The new library in Wood Street is due to open in late July providing residents with a wider range of  services in a purpose built modern building.

The facilities will include state of the art meeting space and public computers, as well as a brand new café for the community to enjoy.

As a Library Plus it will be open for longer hours than the former library so the services will be more easily available for residents.

During July hoardings will be erected around the former Wood Street library to make the site secure.

The libraries team now have a brand new Facebook page that you can follow for updates, virtual events and more.
