Residents remember their Town Hall memories

Town Hall

Residents have been recalling fond memories of the Town Hall. Jenny Dearn’s nan was born in 1896 and died in 2002 having lived her entire life in Waltham Forest.

Jenny said: “She used to tell me she remembered Forest Road before the Town Hall was built.

“There had been a dairy farm there, and she remembered the cows being herded along Forest Road. She worked as a seamstress making posh underwear, somewhere in Walthamstow.

“She used to see the cows when she went shopping in Hoe Street at lunch times because I think people had to shop more regularly then-before they had fridges!”

In the 1970s the council held benefit gigs at the Assembly Hall and in June 1976, Mike Kox recalls a concert with the Sex Pistols:

“Before they went on stage I was in the toilets with a mate combing our long hair and wearing regulation denim jackets of the time.

In walked this pale faced lad with spiky carrot coloured hair wearing what looked like a black plastic bag - it was of course Johnny Rotten! He looked at us, looked at one of the cubicles, cursed and then walked out. Not sure if his cursing was directed at us or the state of the toilet!”

Age UK garden cleared out for residents


As part of their work with local communities, Delivery Partner ISG and subcontractors from the Waltham Forest Project team started clearing out Age UK Waltham Forest’s garden last week, volunteering to make the outside space safe for residents to use.

Further works will continue in the near future with plans for a ramp, repairs to the path and to build an outdoor shelter for the Hub’s use. 

Keeping Construction sites safe

The Government’s current national lockdown guidelines has made clear that construction work should continue if safe to do so.

All sites are COVID secure, clearly signed, and respect social distancing guidelines, with hand sanitation stations.

Council officers regularly visit construction sites across the borough to ensure that regulations are being followed.
