Wanstead Village Directory

PO Box 2491, Ilford, IG1 8JT

Welcome...

Last month saw the fringe, trail and festival –

Wanstead’s annual trio of community-spirited

activities – delight residents and visitors alike.

The full event titles are never needed. We know

the fringe means a mix of theatre, comedy, music

and the arts. We know the trail means a diverse

display of artistic creations. We know the festival

means a community celebration… and a nun

driving a mobile piano. They are our three singlename

celebrities, the Madonna, Cher and Shakira of

Wanstead. What a mark of success to be known by a

single name!

“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose, by any other name

would smell as sweet.” True as that may be, the Bard obviously

overlooked the power of being mononymous. Shakespeare

himself, Madonna, Cher and Shakira, even Napoleon. Five

names that require no more detail to convey an identity. Five

personalities encapsulated by a single moniker. Five people that

by any other name would be a little more… anonymous.

Or perhaps, Shakira et al do in fact prove William’s point. By

any other name Madonna would, of course, still be in vogue,

Napoleon would have still met his Waterloo and Cher would still

believe in life after love. Names are important, but the people

behind them more so. As Shakespeare tells us, a name is “nor

hand, nor foot, nor arm, nor face, nor any other part belonging to

a man.” It’s substance over style, actions over words, content over

hype. What you are is more important than who you are.

So, as we look forward to future fringes, trails

and festivals – or Madonna, Cher and

Shakira tour dates – we can be confident

they will each live up to their

(unimportant) name.

Council control of

waste collections

Redbridge Council

has ended its

relationship with

waste management

contractor Amey, to

deliver the borough’s

collection services

in-house. “Until this

summer, the council

were tied into a

12-year contract

with a private

waste management

company. Ending

the contract means

the council now has

complete control

over waste and

recycling collections,

giving the council

more freedom to

improve services,”

said a spokesperson.

Local duo continue to spread

kindness across Wanstead

Bigbelly smart bin installed on

Snaresbrook Road next to Eagle Pond

Mark Mountney and Elsa Arnold

at last month’s Wanstead Festival

The Wanstead Fringe provided an ideal

opportunity to revisit the popularity of

last November’s local World Kindness Day

celebrations. “The Fringe started with Elsa

hosting a ceramic workshop, making kindness

messages to be displayed at various shops.

We were also at the festival, where we had a

kindness tree again… We’ve got lots more

exciting things happening this year, so watch

this space!” said Mark Mountney of Zoology

hair salon, who organised the activities with

anti-bullying ambassador Elsa Arnold.

Spring-flowering bulb giveaway and

planting weekend this month

Redbridge Council has installed a hi-tech

Bigbelly bin on Snaresbrook Road as part of

work undertaken with residents and the City

of London to clear up Eagle Pond. “It’s a smart

bin that can accommodate more rubbish,

lets the council know when it’s full, requires

emptying less often and reduces the risk of

litter blowing out and into the pond,” said

Councillor Jo Blackman. Big Belly bins hold

roughly eight times more rubbish than a

regular bin and compact waste automatically

throughout the day.

50 SATURDAY stalls of artisan craft + 2ND vegan pop-up NOV cafe

50 stalls of artisan craft + vegan pop-up cafe

Redbridge Council will be giving away

spring-flowering bulbs to the community this

month, encouraging everyone to plant them

as part of the Big Bulb Planting Weekend (18

to 20 October). “This is part of a borough-wide

movement to bring everybody together to

beautify our streets… Bulbs can be planted

in spaces that benefit the community,” said

a spokesperson. The bulbs – which include

daffodils, tulips and crocuses – must be

requested by 10 October and can be collected

from Wanstead Library. Visit wnstd.com/blbs

Free on-street parking has been

doubled to one hour

Storytime with a difference: family

drag queen performance at library

Leader of the Council,

Councillor Jas Athwal

Redbridge Council has doubled the amount

of time drivers can park for free on the

borough’s high streets from 30 minutes to one

hour. “This will be a real boost for our high

streets and help revitalise the local economy

whilst making sure there is still a good level

of turnover in parking bays – giving as many

people as possible the opportunity to use

parking spaces to pop to the shops,” said

Councillor Jas Athwal. Motorists can activate

the free on-street parking via the Ringo app or

at an upgraded pay and display machine.

The Environment Agency has announced a

day of community engagement as part of the

River Roding Project, which aims to improve

local river defences. “Heavy rain has caused

the river to flood the local area eight times in

the past 100 years,” said a spokesperson. The

project involves the construction of a flood

storage area to hold back high flows upstream

in rural Essex. Residents are invited to find

out more and give their views at Woodford

Station, Snakes Lane East on 17 October from

12 noon to 6pm. Call 03708 506 506

An aspiring young actor from Wanstead has

spoken of his enjoyment after being cast

in a professional production of The Railway

Children for last month’s Wanstead Fringe.

“There was never a dull moment and I couldn’t

have wished for a better experience, from latenight

rehearsals to the adrenaline rush before

each show! I learnt so much from working

with such a warm, friendly and professional

cast,” said 14-year-old Dashiell Ratcliffe. “There

was a lovely family bond working with a cast

so closely, and I already miss the buzz of it all!”

Tennis Club. “The club is pleased to advise that

John is making good progress. The club would

like to place on record the heroic efforts of Joe

Ellis-Grewal, Pinder Grewal, Ben Phillips, Paul

Local historian Lynn Haseldine Jones will

lead a walk around Snaresbrook this month

looking at the evidence for commuters.

“We begin at Snaresbrook Station, where

the railway first came in 1856, changing the

nature of the village from a predominantly

Georgian settlement to a bustling Victorian

suburb. There is still evidence of the Great

Eastern Railway, hardly noticed by passengers

on the busy Central Line,” said Lynn. The free

90-minute walk departs at 2pm on 9 October

(booking required). Visit wnstd.com/snaresw

In last month’s Wanstead Village Directory,

you might have read Iain Ambler’s

update on attempts to rewild (restore

an area of land to its natural state) parts

of Wanstead as a way of improving

biodiversity in the area.

Our survey of the trial site on George Green

revealed more than 80 species – highlighting

the importance of allowing small areas of

green space to grow a little wilder during

the summer months. Here are just some

of the plants and insects we found.

Tackling Crime

Wanstead Village ward councillors Jo Blackman, Daniel Morgan-Thomas and

Paul Donovan discuss crime and the work they do to keep crime rates

low, and urge residents to engage with local police

Rates of reported crime are relatively

low in Wanstead Village. Social

media can exaggerate the risk of

crime as we can hear more quickly about

incidents that we wouldn’t otherwise be

aware of.

But every crime committed is one too many,

and as Wanstead Village councillors, we are

doing all we can to make our ward even safer.

Central government cuts have had a drastic

impact on policing levels as well as the level

of support provided to vulnerable people and

young people.

We have campaigned for more resources for

our local police and were pleased to hear that

there is now a full team of two police officers

(PC Paul Spencer and PC Hannah Vincent) and

one community support officer (PCSO Shyam

Aubeelack) after a period of reduced capacity.

One area where the council can help is

with CCTV and automatic number plate

recognition (ANPR) cameras. We were

pleased to hear that CCTV and ANPR cameras

recently installed by the council following

requests from us and the police have proved

an effective deterrent locally, and we have

identified other cameras in need of an

upgrade in our ward.

We meet regularly with the local police and

can raise concerns where residents contact us

with specific points about problem areas. We

also regularly attend Neighbourhood Watch

meetings to follow up local issues.

We encourage all members of the

public to ensure all crimes are reported,

otherwise it is impossible for us or the police

to follow up.

Left to right: Jo Blackman,

Paul Donovan and Daniel

Morgan-Thomas

Even if the police are unable to respond

immediately, reports help them identify

patterns of behaviour, target patrols to certain

areas and build up their intelligence.

The local police hold regular drop-in sessions,

which are an opportunity to raise any local

concerns. These are detailed on the Wanstead

Village Directory event listings pages.

Residents are also welcome to attend our

advice service, which takes place at 10am

on the second and fourth Saturday of every

month at the vestry, Christ Church.

Working together, the community, council

and police can help tackle crime in Wanstead

Village. And we will continue to do what we

can to tackle crime in our area.

Meet and… Greet?

On 3 October, Wanstead residents will get the chance to quiz

London City Airport representatives about their expansion proposals.

John Stewart of campaign group HACAN East reports

London City Airport has extended

the consultation on its expansion

proposals in its draft Master Plan to

18 October. The airport wants to almost

double flight numbers from today’s levels,

end the 24-hour weekend break and bring

in more planes in the early morning and

late evening.

The proposals have proved highly

controversial. The Mayor of Newham called

the draft Master Plan “fundamentally flawed”.

Other local authorities have come out against

the proposals and local residents from

many parts of London have been sending in

objections. Climate change activists have also

raised big concerns.

London City Airport does seem to have

miscalculated just how much opposition

its proposals would generate. When the

consultation ends, it will look at the responses

and publish a final Master Plan towards the

end of this year. If it does decide to take any

of the proposals forward, the airport will need

to draw up a detailed planning application to

Newham Council, the planning authority for

the airport. It will be required to consult on its

proposals before submitting the application.

It means the earliest any application is likely to

be considered will be the middle of next year.

London City Airport has also been asked

to look again at its flight paths. It narrowed

and concentrated all its flight paths in 2016,

resulting in a five-fold increase in complaints

to the airport. Parts of Wanstead are directly

under these flight paths. The flight paths will

be reconsidered whether or not expansion

takes place. It is part of wider airspace changes

taking place at all airports in London and the

South East as air traffic controllers move to a

satellite system to guide planes.

London City Airport expects to consult on

options for altered flight paths in 2021. Almost

certainly, one of the options it will put forward

will be for flight paths to be rotated during

the day to give communities a break from

the noise. This would tie in with Heathrow’s

commitment when it introduces its new flight

paths to give all communities a break from

the noise each day. These flight path changes

bring some hope for people in Wanstead but

they are unlikely to be introduced until about

2024. The reason for the delay is that changing

flight paths at all airports in London and the

South East is a complex task as the airspace is

among the busiest in the world.

In the immediate term, though, the concern

is London City’s proposals for expansion. You

can find more details about these, plus some

handy hints on making a response, on our

website.

For more information on HACAN East and

the consultation, visit hacaneast.org.uk

A public meeting to be attended by

airport representatives will take place at

Wanstead Library on 3 October from 7pm.

inspired diabetic

As part of Black History Month events taking place locally in October,

chef Lyndon Wissart will be explaining how he managed to cure his

Type 2 diabetes in 105 days… without medication

My name is Lyndon Wissart and I

am from London. I have recently

undertaken a journey, which

has involved tackling and overcoming

struggles with my health.

In 2015 I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes,

with indications that I was in a danger zone

with the symptoms involved. Since then I

have managed to cure myself of diabetes

without medication. I have also written a book

called The Inspired Diabetic, which details my

experience in the hope I can help others with

the same condition.

Though my parents are of Jamaican heritage,

I am originally from London, and have been

trained as a professional chef with 30 years of

experience under my apron in restaurants and

hotels around the capital. According to current

statistics, people from a BAME background

have a greater chance of developing Type 2

diabetes (people of African-Caribbean decent

are three times more likely).

It has become an increasingly undeniable

truth that the diabetes epidemic affects

people globally and the fact that these

unfortunate circumstances can be changed –

and even rectified – with adjustments to diet

and lifestyle makes this an essential subject

to address, which is what I have tried to do by

writing my story, charting the steps I took to

reverse my own blood sugar levels.

The Inspired Diabetic is a book about lifestyle,

nutrition, fitness, exercise and, of course,

diabetes. I believe my story will be of interest

to many, with diabetes affecting over 400

million people worldwide.

Changes in lifestyle and diet means diabetes

is one of the fastest growing diseases on the

planet. It is also the subject of growing media

interest as journalists become aware of the

scale of the disease.

Here follows my blood sugar level-reversing

journey, which is amazing. This was all done

naturally, without medication. As a general

guide, haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) levels of less

than or equal to 40 mmol/mol is normal.

• zOctober 2015:

• zNovember 2015:

• zDecember 2015:

The Environment Agency is working

with Redbridge Council to reduce

flooding to homes and businesses in

Woodford and surrounding areas from the

River Roding. The river has a long history

of flooding, most noticeably in 2000, when

over 400 properties flooded in Woodford.

We are currently working on a bid for

funding from the Mayor of London’s Good

Growth Fund (a £70 million regeneration

programme to support growth and

community development in London), with a

decision due around October time. If we are

successful, we will have extra money to carry

out environmental enhancements along the

River Roding corridor. This will bring a wealth

of environmental and social benefits to the

local area.

On 17 October from 12 noon to 6pm, we

will be hosting a local drop-in event at

Woodford Station to share proposed plans

of both embankment refurbishments and

environmental enhancements with the

local community. We want your thoughts

and ideas on how we can help enhance the

environment.

We are a diverse team of people at the

Environment Agency who are all passionate

about the environment, our rivers and

helping people at risk of flooding. We play a

vital role in planning for and responding to

flooding from rivers and the sea and we work

in partnership with local authorities and the

emergency services to ensure the responses

are coordinated. We have a state-of-theart

incident room from where we plan and

respond to flooding and other environmental

incidents 365 days a year.

As a category one

incident responder

under the Civil

Contingencies

Act 2004,

it’s our

responsibility

to warn and

inform the

public about

flooding and

other incidents.

Before a flood occurs, we work with the

Meteorological Office to understand forecasts

for severe weather and interpret where

flooding could impact local communities and

infrastructure. We issue flood warnings to

people who live near rivers when we expect

flooding to occur to enable them to stay safe

and reduce damage to property.

As you may expect, we were involved in

protecting people and property and warning

residents during the recent flooding at Whaley

Bridge in the Goyt Valley. But locally, our

site-based staff ensure the River Roding is

flowing as effectively as possible. This includes

carrying out proactive work in Chigwell,

Loughton and Dagenham before the bad

weather arrives, such as maintaining river

channels, clearing blockages and operating

flood defences. The majority of the riverbanks

should be maintained by the riparian owner,

the landowner adjacent to the riverbank.

During a flood, we deploy staff to the

areas affected to gather information on

the impacts and provide advice to help

people respond and recover. We provide

a flood warning service called Floodline

(0345 988 11 88), so people can stay up to date

with the latest reports. We also respond to

a wide range of other major environmental

incidents such as pollution, waste fires,

fish kills and waste crime, so if you see any

environmental incidents, please report them

(0800 80 70 60), and if you own land next to a

river, please be aware of your responsibilities

(wnstd.com/watercourse).

One of our aims has been to make art more accessible. It’s a form of

communication. If we’ve helped more local people enjoy art, that’s an

important achievement, says Donna Mizzi, Art Trail Wanstead founder

some reason, there’s art

everywhere on the High Street!”

“For

“Gosh, there must be a helluva lot

of artists living in Wanstead.” “What’s that

cow doing in Majestic Wine Warehouse?”

These were just a few of the comments

overheard during September’s Art Trail

Wanstead. This trail has been the biggest and

best in its 10 years, according to many visitors

and artists. Almost 80 venues participated in

the free 16-day event organised by Art Group

Wanstead volunteers. Some small shops

showed a few samples while larger businesses

accommodated work by several artists. Florist

Lillies of Wanstead even gave over its whole

front window to flower art by delighted Leila

Skye, while trail supporter The Stow Brothers

used its window and walls to showcase the

event. About 150 amateur and professional

artists took part, and at least the same

number of school children. In addition, 142 art

postcards went on display, most created by

local residents.

Children from Wanstead Church School

and Aldersbrook Primary made hundreds

of clocks for the event’s Time theme, many

of which were displayed outside the Corner

House. Other works ranged from paintings

to photography, from pottery and jewellery

to mosaic work, and varied in scale from tiny

masterpieces in a miniature gallery to Karen

Humpage’s huge papier-mâché cow.

Then there was the Wanstead Festival with

stalls from designer makers and artists,

and a wide range of free workshops.

Snaresbrook Primary School produced

seasonal trees to embellish and later show

at the school as part of Victoria Senett and

Emma English’s recycling workshop. Marsh

Quilters demonstrated their colourful and

Humpage (right). Arnold the cow collected

almost £120 for Compassion in World Farming

intricate craft and ran popular workshops.

Alison Stenhouse and Sally Asbury helped

children make marine-scene artworks to draw

attention to the Sea-Changers charity, while

Eugene Coyle encouraged postcard designing

and paper-plate clock making by children. He

also sold contributed postcards for charity.

But the giant trail workshop, which invariably

attracts the biggest participation, was the

Lego “Build” attraction organised by Adult

Fans of Lego. “We had more than 200 separate

models made by our artist children (and a few

parents!) on display all day,” said exhausted –

but happy – co-ordinator Lee McGinty.

Meanwhile, other work provoked discussions.

A photographic work by psychotherapist and

artist Victoria Baskerville at The Duke showed

phones obscuring the callers’ faces. Victoria

explained: “We could argue that mobile

phones have bought more connectedness

through social media, but at the same time

moved us away from ‘being in the moment’,

connecting and being truly in relationship

with each other.”

Anti-Semitism: discuss

David Rosenberg is a lifelong campaigner against fascism and racism, and

at this month’s East London Humanists meeting, he will be giving his

perspective on the scourge of anti-Semitism and inviting discussion

After the horrors of the Holocaust

were exposed to the world, most

people thought it inconceivable

that anti-Semitism could surface again in

any serious form, but anti-Semitism has

proven to be a light sleeper in Britain. And

while abuse and attacks targeting Muslims

and refugees are more commonplace, the

number of anti-Semitic incidents in Britain

in recent years has begun to rise. It has

rarely been absent from the headlines, not

just because of the reported incidents, but

because it has become a political football.

I grew up as a Jew in inner London, then later

in Ilford. From around 16 years old, I became

an anti-racist activist. I instinctively associated

British anti-Semitism with the political right

and far right. In 2011 I published a book called

Battle for the East End, which focused on

Oswald Mosley’s British Union of Fascists,

a fundamentally anti-Semitic movement

that built 500 branches around the country

in the 1930s, and won adherents among all

classes to its poisonous ideology. In the more

mainstream right wing, I was aware it was a

Conservative government that passed Britain‘s

first modern immigration law – the Aliens

Act – which was directed overwhelmingly

against Jewish migrants from Eastern Europe.

Fortunately, my grandparents were able to

get in.

Several decades later – in the 1980s – when

Mrs Thatcher appointed three Jews to her

cabinet, I remember former Prime Minister

Harold MacMillan lamenting the fact her

Cabinet now contained too many “old

Estonians” and too few old Etonians.

But much of the media coverage has centred

on allegations against the Labour Party –

the party that introduced legislation about

equalities – and specifically against Jeremy

Corbyn. I was active in the Labour Party for

a few years in the 1980s, and rejoined in 2015

when Corbyn stood for the leadership. I

knew very well how strong his commitment

was to supporting minorities and at first the

allegations struck me as bizarre (and they still

do), but there is no doubt that this perception

has come to be believed by significant

numbers of Jews, and we need to understand

that. Corbyn is well known too for being a

strong advocate of justice for Palestinians.

Somewhere along the line, attitudes to Jews,

on the one hand, and attitudes towards Israeli

nationalism and Israeli government policies

on the other, have become blurred in an

unhelpful way. Under considerable pressure,

the Labour Party adopted what is known as

the International Holocaust Remembrance

Alliance definition of anti-Semitism, with a set

of associated examples, though the examples

are controversial and the actual breadth of

this alliance is certainly open to question.

This is just some of the history and some of

the issues I look forward to unpicking. I hope

you will come and unpick them with me!

Library on 28 October from 7.30pm (free;

Gardening movement

Marian Temple from the Wanstead Community Gardeners takes a look

at the Wanstead Place Clinic garden, a site that epitomises the group’s

ethos of collective effort, but is also home to some mystery goings-on

Our latest garden has really taken on

a life of its own. Planted only in April

in order to catch the spring showers,

which didn’t come, it has been lovingly

watered by the wonderful Carmel who

works in the British Heart Foundation shop.

She has the enviable ability of involving

the whole world in the watering. Thus, the

neighbours, the minister one side and the

man in the tall house the other side, have

been filling watering cans and barrels.

Helen and Eileen who work at the clinic have

been doing their bit, as well as a neighbour in

Church Path. This really has turned out to be

a community garden with us, the Wanstead

Community Gardeners, setting it up and the

locals taking over from there. This is exactly

as we would like it to be. It makes sense. The

garden flourished, and in seemingly no time

was awash with colour. This is the only one

of our patches which has the luxury of being

regularly watered. What a difference that

makes!

Right from the beginning this garden seems

to have had a life of its own. It wasn’t long

before four fairies appeared, plus two frogs

and a pair of boots! Two scarecrows arrived

on the scene plus a cat missing a hind leg,

two rabbits, one without ears, and so it goes

on. The latest addition to the menagerie is a

meerkat!

This is not our normal style but something

else. The children pass by on their way to

the Church of England school every day. The

mums visit the clinic with their toddlers, as

do elderly people coming to have their feet

done. Passers-by enjoy this corner of quirkery

with its colourful flowers appearing in what

was a desolate empty patch and its everincreasing

population of who knows what?

It really is a winner and maybe will become

as much a Wanstead iconic garden as is the

Corner House garden and the fountain beds

on George Green.

Now where is the mystery? This concerns the

pair of scarecrows. Not only do they move

about, sometimes appearing in friendly

conflab, at other times back to back, having

had a tiff maybe? More mysterious than that is

the fact they frequently change their clothes!

They have rainwear for inclement weather and

quite a wardrobe. Barbie watch out!

All this makes this corner an ongoing delight,

full of surprises. Who could have guessed

in April that Wanstead would gain such a

successful addition to its street patchwork

gardens? This one really makes people smile.

For more information on the work of the

Wanstead Community Gardeners, email

gardeners@wnstd.com or leave a note

for them at Wanstead Library.

START-UP, START RIGHT

Starting your own business can be an exciting but worrying endeavour.

Derek Inkpin, a partner at local solicitors Wiseman Lee, highlights some

of the things you should consider when going it alone

All the ins and outs of a new business

– licences, data protection, satisfying

customer enquiries and employing

people – may at first seem like quite a

mountain to climb. So, where do you start?

Carrying out research of the marketplace

for your chosen business as well as taking

sound business advice is vital. Let HMRC

know you are going to be self-employed.

Writing a business plan, talking to your bank

about financial support and developing your

business brand will all be important.

You will need to decide which business

structure suits your needs. You could choose

to set up as a sole trader. This is the simplest

type of business which is owned entirely by

you. As such, you are entitled to keep all the

profits after tax has been paid, although you

will also be personally liable for any losses. If

this seems a scary prospect, you could set up

as a limited company – where your personal

finances are separate from the company. The

downside is this can require more work on

the company’s reporting and management.

The third option is to set up your business

as a partnership. This is the easiest way

for two or more people to run a business

together. Business debts are shared, as are the

responsibilities, but you will have joint liability

with your partner for any losses.

Once you are registered you need to think

about the many legal aspects of running a

business. Are there any licences you need?

For example, if it’s a retail store, will there be

music playing? Will you be selling food or

alcohol? Each of these and more require their

own separate licences.

You also need to think carefully about data

protection. You may think your start-up

business is too small, but if you plan on

hiring staff or storing any information about

customers who use your service, then you’ll

need to ensure this data is kept secure, up

to date and accurate. It is also vital that the

people you are collecting the data from are

aware they can see the information you have

on them and correct it if it’s wrong. They also

have the right to request it is deleted. Before

your business begins collecting any data, you

must tell the Information Commissioner’s

Office how the information will be used or you

could face a large fine.

Perhaps the most daunting aspect of starting

your own business is being responsible for

other people’s livelihoods. For this reason,

it is paramount you follow the relevant

employment laws, including payroll, national

insurance, rights to work, pensions and

employment contracts. Do also remember you

are responsible for the health and safety of

both your staff and your customers while they

are in your place of work.

All of the above, of course, comes with a need

to work hard. Good luck!

Celebrating Culture

Fabula Festival – Redbridge Libraries’ biggest cultural event of the year

– is back this autumn and promises to delight residents with a jampacked

programme. Anita Luby reports

Fabula Festival (2 to 13 October) is a

celebration of the arts and libraries

and their power to transform lives.

It’s delivered through a programme

of performances, children’s events,

author talks, films, writing programmes,

workshops and arts projects. It gives

residents the opportunity to participate

in a range of new and exciting activities

delivered by a range of local and national

organisations, showcasing the very best

in literature, music, drama, dance, film, art

and technology.

Festival highlights include an evening with

author Lucinda Dickens Hawksley at Wanstead

Library (10 October, 7.30pm). Everyone knows

Charles Dickens’ novels, but did you know

he was also a keen actor, mesmerist and

conjuror? Lucinda – who is also Dickens’ greatgreat-great-granddaughter

– will talk about

the man behind the novels: the journalist,

social campaigner, dog lover, travel writer,

and a man who was so influential in his own

time that when he died the whole country

went into mourning. She will also look at the

changes he helped bring about in society,

which still have resonance today.

Elsewhere in the festival, there are writing

workshops galore and opportunities for

emerging artists to learn from established

performers. Spoken word artist Yomi Greeds

Sood from Apples & Snakes will be leading a

masterclass for aspiring writers followed by a

performance event featuring him and rising

star on the poetry circuit, Debris Stephens.

The ever-popular Kids Take Over events at

Redbridge Central Library over the weekend

of 12 and 13 October are once again delivered

in partnership with Discover Story Centre.

Kids of all ages will be treated to an array of

Lucinda Dickens Hawksley

author events such as David Litchfield, Sufiya

Ahmed, Nadia Shireen and Simon Moles,

writing workshops, comic book workshops,

exhibitions, theatre and dance performances.

There will also be opportunities to explore

the world of STEAM (science, technology,

engineering, arts and maths) in our awardwinning

digital makerspace: Lab Central.

Thanks to generous funding from Arts Council

England, the festival is even bigger and

better this year as we celebrate the power of

libraries during National Libraries Week (7 to

13 October). Focusing on the theme of libraries

in the digital age, visitors to the festival will

get the opportunity to discover the digital

innovation taking place across Redbridge

Libraries from Hublets, Yetitablets, eBooks,

eMagazines, makerspaces, film streaming, a

tech lending library and more. All of this can

be accessed for free with your library card to

open up a world of possibilities.

Fabula Festival is curated and produced

by Redbridge Library & Culture Service,

managed by Vision RCL on behalf of

Redbridge Council.

FRESH

FOR THE DAY AHEAD?

Or did SNORING

ruin your sleep last

night (again)?

A visit to Dr Malik at Improve Your Smile could help bring back

blissful sleep, happy mornings and better functioning

IN CARTOONS and television comedies, snoring has always

been a source of humour. But for many sufferers and their partners,

it is a serious matter. As well as damaging relationships, its

effects – including poor quality of sleep and lack of sleep – can

lead to far worse things. Yet strangely, research indicates that in

90% of cases, snorers go untreated; most of them probably unaware

help is available.

HOW SERIOUS IS SNORING?

Snoring is frequently, though not always, part of the condition

known as Sleep Apnoea. This is characterised by a reduced

capacity to breathe, or by pauses in breathing, during sleep. The

pauses, called apnoea, can last from a few seconds to a few minutes,

and may occur five to thirty times in an hour. Sleep Apnoea

can lead to health complications such as heart disease, high blood

pressure, diabetes, stroke, daytime sleepiness and difficulty in

concentrating, and sufferers run a higher risk of having work-related

or driving accidents.

There are three types of sleep apnoea: Central Apnoea,

Obstructive Apnoea and a combination of the two (Central and

Obstructive). Central Apnoea results when the brain fails to activate

the muscles needed for breathing during sleep. Obstructive Apnoea

results when the airways collapse or are obstructed during sleep.

WHAT IS THE TREATMENT?

Depending on the cause and the severity of the condition, sleep

apnoea can be treated using non-surgical or surgical methods.

Dr Amjad Malik encourages people who snore to attend a free

initial consultation. Having identified their particular problem,

he is able to offer a number of solutions.

In many cases, a simple and effective

method is a snore guard. This is a mouth

piece designed to allow the lower jaw to be

thrust forward so the tongue does not fall

back and obstruct the airway during sleep.

These are custom-made for a perfect fit –

superior to any ready-made ones.

DO ONLY ADULTS SNORE?

It is rare for children to snore (and can be

a cause for particular concern), but Dr

Malik has successfully treated children, and

believes there are advantages in treating a

person while they are still growing. In children

and in adults, the cause of snoring

can be the relationship between the shape

of the palate and the size and position of

the tongue, which obstructs the breathing

during sleep. This can often be remedied

with orthodontic treatment to realign the

upper arch of teeth to give the tongue

more room, so it lies in a better position.

mind-body-spirit

Practising qi gong promotes positivity, wellness and a balance in life,

says Mina Wolton, who offers classes in the ancient mind-body-spirit

system at Wanstead House

My name is Mina and I have lived

in Wanstead for nearly 25 years.

I am a qi gong practitioner and

have recently started teaching classes at

Wanstead House Community centre.

I have always been interested in health

and wellbeing and played sports all my

life. However, ill health in my thirties led

me to exploring complementary therapies,

particularly qi gong. What they all had in

common was working with a life force and

being able to tap into that energy to energise,

heal and create harmony within.

Qi gong, which was documented in China

over 2,000 years ago, has become popular

throughout the world for its many healthgiving

benefits. Qi (pronounced ‘chi’) is the

Chinese word for life force or energy (also

known as ‘ki’ or ‘prana’).

Nature is infused with qi, which is why when

we are by the sea, near mountains, in forests,

gardens or just looking at clouds floating in

the sky, we experience qi at a deep level and

feel the restorative power of that energy field

in nature.

Gong (or ‘kung’) means ‘work’ or ‘effort’, so

qi gong is the cultivation of that qi through

practice and dedication and learning how

to direct its energy. It consists of static and

flowing movements, which are coordinated

with breathing to circulate and direct qi

around the meridians (energy pathways) of

the body.

Just some of the many benefits of regular qi

gong practice include relaxation, boosting

the immune system, strengthening the body

and a sense of wellbeing. The exercises are

performed with a certain amount of tension

but, paradoxically, in a relaxed way, and are

suitable for all ages and all levels of fitness.

What I have discovered through my 20 years of

learning qi gong under Sifu Ram, my qi gong

master, is that it is incredibly empowering. I

have learnt to take personal responsibility for

my health.

You learn to emulate the crane (the animal

that symbolises our style of qi gong), so we

learn grace, strength and fluidity, which then

becomes a metaphor for how to approach life.

In a small, confined space in around 15 to 20

minutes (as a required minimum) per day, you

can do a series of exercises to promote a sense

of positivity, wellness and balance in life.

Mina runs monthly qi gong taster

sessions starting on the first Monday of

the month at Wanstead House, 21 The

Green, Wanstead (four sessions: £35).

66 Wanstead Village Directory

The lakes in Wanstead Park are the

most visible remaining features

of its past as one of this country’s

great landscaped gardens. All completely

artificial, they are now nearly 300 years old,

and for most of their history have suffered

from fluctuating water levels.

As the Friends have described in previous

articles, this has been due to several factors:

1. The failure of systems designed to supply

water to the lakes from outside the park.

2. The loss of much of the natural catchment

area to development since 1900.

3. The introduction of modern

drainage systems and other

services around the park, which

has lowered the water table and

created leak paths.

4. The loss of the River Roding as a

source for the Ornamental Water.

5. The unfavourable geology on which much

of the lake system sits.

6. The lack of effective lining, or its

deterioration beyond repair, in two of the

most vulnerable lakes, compounded – in

one case - by wartime damage.

Wanstead Park was listed as a Grade II*

landscape “of special interest” by English

Heritage (now Historic England) in 2001,

following an earlier Grade II designation in

1987. Since 2009 it has been classed as “At Risk”

on account of its deteriorating condition. The

state of the lakes was a major factor in this.

For more than a decade, the Friends of

Wanstead Parklands has been working with

the park’s guardians, in particular the City of

London, to identify long-term solutions to the

problems with the lakes. In 2013 a Wanstead

Park Project Steering Committee was set up,

involving all major stakeholders, to try to

develop an achievable and sustainable plan

for the restoration and future management of

the park. Under its auspices, the consultancy

LDA Design was engaged, and produced a

draft Parkland Plan which has gone through

several drafts as the knowledge base has

developed, circumstances have changed

and costs have been clarified. The latest draft

proposes three themed work packages. Two of

the packages are framed to meet the objective

of getting Wanstead Park off the “At Risk”

register. These would require a substantial

capital funding package involving a grant

from the National Lottery Heritage Fund. We

hope to be in a position to publish details of

the finalised Parkland Plan shortly.

The City commissioned a hydrological survey

from JBA Consulting which provided a much

clearer understanding of the way the lake

system works. However, the whole project

was galvanised by a development in a quite

different quarter. Under the requirements

of the Flood and Water Management Act

2010, the Environment Agency confirmed in

December 2017 that the lakes in Wanstead

Park, which were classified as “Large Raised

Reservoirs”, should be raised to “High Risk”

status, as an uncontrolled release of water

in a major flood event could, in theory,

put people’s lives at risk. It should be

emphasised that this was not a cause for

panic or a criticism of the way the lakes had

been maintained, but an almost automatic

consequence of the way the new regulations

now dealt with lake cascades of this type.

The City of London’s response was to arrange

an inspection by the independent civil

engineer who monitors the management of

reservoirs. He advised that an engineering

assessment of the dams needed to be

undertaken in the first instance, as it was

likely they would need to be strengthened,

perhaps raised, and provided with new

spillways. The engineering assessment has

now been commissioned and should be

completed by the end of 2019. It is anticipated

the modifications required could cost up to

£10 million, based on what has been spent on

a similar project on Hampstead Heath.

As far as the City of London is concerned, a bill

of this size is not good news, but potentially

presents an opportunity for Wanstead Park.

This was because spending to strengthen the

dams would come from central, rather than

RESTORING

Wanstead

Park

In the fifth of a series of articles looking at the developing

plans for restoring Wanstead Park, Richard Arnopp from the

Friends of Wanstead Parklands brings us up to date on hopes

to resolve the problems with the park’s lakes

Epping Forest, budgets, and it would make

sense to carry out other improvements and

repairs to the lakes at the same time. Any

non-statutory element of the work could

potentially be used as match funding for a

parallel bid to the National Lottery Heritage

Fund. A grant from that quarter could be

used to cover a range of non-water-related

improvements to the park, and potentially

offer the prospect of covering more ground

on a shorter timescale than had ever been

contemplated, albeit perhaps with a rather

later starting date than previously hoped.

Given the likely deadline for the completion

of works on the lakes, timings for a lottery bid

would be very tight if any of the spending was

to be used as match funding. This is a once

and for all opportunity which must be got

right!

Similar projects in Highams Park and

Hampstead Heath have brought big

improvements, including in aesthetic terms.

The work will inevitably be disruptive, but the

City of London intends to plan and carry it out

carefully, taking into account local concerns.

Watch this space!

Listen and learn

In the 18th of a series of articles, David Bird discusses the work of

Redbridge Music Society and introduces us to Spanish saxophonist

Manu Brazo, who will be performing at Wanstead Library this month

The current aims of Redbridge Music

Society are to promote and support

talented young musicians in the

early years of their careers and to provide

a diverse range of musical genres to the

Redbridge public. This month, outstanding

young saxophonist Manu Brazo, together

with award-winning piano accompanist

Bryan Evans MBE, will perform music by

Vaughan Williams, Verdi (Traviata Fantasy),

de Falla, Gershwin and others.

Twenty-six-year-old Manu Brazo was born

in Utrera (Seville). After completing his

undergraduate studies under Juan Jimenez at

the Manuel Castillo Conservatory of Music in

Seville, he continued his studies at London’s

Royal College of Music (RCM) for a Masters in

Performance degree. He made his concerto

debut in the UK with the Guildford Symphony

Orchestra in 2016, playing the Glazunov

Saxophone Concerto, and since then has

performed with a number of orchestras,

including the London City Orchestra.

Manu has won many awards and prizes,

including the 2016 Manuel Castillo

Conservatory Concerto Competition. He

was invited to join the London Sinfonietta

Academy and to collaborate with the Youth

Musician Symphony Orchestra (YMSO). In 2018

he was selected to take part in the Britten-

Pears Young Artist Programme, which saw

him perform at the Snape Maltings Proms

conducted by Marin Alsop. He was chosen

for the Tillett Trust Young Artists Platform for

2018/19 and is currently a Philip and Dorothy

Green 2019/20 Young Artists Award holder – an

award given by Making Music to celebrate the

best of the UK’s young musical talent.

Manu has performed at notable venues in

the UK, including the Royal Opera House,

and has played in Norway, Greece, Spain and

Indonesia. He recently performed with Bryan

Evans as the opening act for Sir Cliff Richard

at the Greenwich Music Time Festival. He also

opened at the official Downton Abbey live

concert at Highclere Castle.

Accompanist Bryan Evans studied at RCM

and whilst there won all the accompanist

prizes. He has performed at major UK venues,

including London’s Wigmore Hall, and in many

countries across the world. He has performed

on BBC Radio 3 and TV and is a leading

exponent of performing chamber opera from

the piano and is currently music director of

Diva Opera. In 1993 he was awarded an MBE

for his services to music.

The partnership of two such outstanding

musicians promises to make Redbridge Music

Society’s opening recital of its 2019/20 season

a very memorable event.

Manu and Bryan will perform at Wanstead

Library on 29 October from 8pm (tickets

on the door: £10; members: £7). For

more information, call 07380 606 767.

In Love with the Past

Join prizewinning author Jean Fullerton at Wanstead Library this month

as she discusses her latest novel A Ration Book Childhood, which

explores a dangerous secret, set in the darkest days of the Blitz

Hello everyone, and for those of you

who don’t know me or my books, I’m

Jean Fullerton, an award-winning,

bestselling author of 15 historical novels.

I’m also a native East Ender, born and bred

in Stepney where my family have lived since

the 1830s. Unsurprisingly, all my novels are

set in the overcrowded and boisterous streets

around the London Docks. I believe my

background gives me a unique home-grown

perspective into the history and culture of the

old riverside communities.

I first fell in love with history at school when I

read Anya Seton’s book Katherine. Since then

I have read everything I can about English

history but I am particularly fascinated by

the 18th and 19th centuries and my books are

set in this period. I just love my native city,

and the East End in particular, which is why

I write stories to bring that vibrant area of

London alive.

My first series introducing the Nolan family

spanned the 1830s and 1840s, after which I

jumped forward to the lean, post-war years

of the late 1940s for my east London district

nurse series featuring nurses Millie and

Connie.

My current Ration Book series follows the

Brogan family as they battle Hitler and each

other during the dark days of World War Two.

The first three books in the series, A Pocketful

of Dreams, A Ration Book Christmas and A

Ration Book Childhood are already released,

and A Ration Book Wedding will follow in May

2020. I’m currently working on A Ration Book

Daughter scheduled for release in May 2021.

But writing a book is only one side of the coin;

having someone read and enjoy it is the other.

When I’m not worrying over the plot and

creating characters you fall in love with, hold

your breath for and shed a tear over, I love

getting out and about meeting readers.

I do this in a variety of places by giving talks

on my life, historical talks based on the

research I’ve undertaken for my novels in

libraries, Women’s Institutes, U3As and other

organisations, and even on cruise ships. Yes, I

know it’s a hard job, but someone has to do it!

Readers are everything. Without them, my

stories are just paper and ink. As I already said,

I love meeting readers and explaining how

I craft the ideas rattling around in my head

into a cracking 400-page novel. With that in

mind, I look forward to meeting all you lovely

Wanstead readers this month.

Jean’s talk will take place at Wanstead

Library on 24 October from 6.30pm to

7.45pm (free; booking required). Visit

Jean Fullerton

Author Talk

Join prize-winning author Jean Fullerton,

who will discuss her latest book, ‘A Ration

Book Childhood’, a story that explores

a dangerous secret, set in the darkest

days of the Blitz. Jean was born into a

large, East End family and grew up in the

overcrowded streets clustered around the

Tower of London. She still lives in East

London, just five miles from where she was

born. In 26 she won the Harry Bowling

Prize for her novel ‘No Cure For Love’.

Thursday 7 February

Good As You: from pride to prejudice 30 years of gay Brita

Good As You is an important book that celebrates the seismic shift that turned gay

friends of the state. It’s a story of how the power of pop culture can place real press

media, to make tangible steps towards change. From ‘Smalltown Boy’ to same sex

integral to his own personal

journey and to so many

young gay men who found

their voices were finally

being heard in the 1980s.

This is the story of public

outrage and personal loss,

the (not always legal) highs

and the desperate lows, and

the final collective victory

as gay people were finally

recognised, as Good As You.

Copies of the book will be

available for purchase

This picture may be nothing special to

most photographers, but to me it was

a milestone breakthrough, realising

I had recognised the possibility of getting

this shot.

I have been a regular member of Woodford

and Wanstead Photographic Society for just

under three years but still consider myself

a novice when I compare myself to other

members I admire. Some people just have the

knack of finding the right angle to make an

average image great. I often wonder how they

see what I don’t and whether you can teach

someone creativity or if it’s something you just

have or you don’t.

I must say, since joining Woodford and

Wanstead Photographic Society, I have started

to continually look at my surroundings to see

if there is a potential photograph within my

sights. I now look skyward as much as down

and left or right.

Leaving my office in Fitzrovia at 4.30pm daily,

and walking the same route to Tottenham

Court Road Tube station, I noticed this facade

in Percy Street showing a reflection of a few

clouds with the staircase visible through the

glazing. I immediately realised that with the

right weather conditions the staircase would

look like it was passing through the clouds.

Camera in hand every afternoon I left work,

my journey down Percy Street was finally

rewarded with ideal conditions – a very bright

sunny afternoon with plenty of fluffy clouds

in the sky. This gave a great reflection with the

staircase clearly visible.

A bit of teasing with the Detail Extractor Filter

from the Nik Collection bolt-on to Photoshop

gave me an image that achieved first place in

a club competition. A pleasing result, but not

as pleasurable as knowing I had imagined the

picture before I had actually seen it.

Old enOUgh tO…

In the third of a series of articles looking at the work of Age UK

Redbridge, Barking & Havering, Janet West explains the importance of

Older People’s Week and looks at what will be happening in Wanstead

The United Nations General Assembly

passed a resolution on 14 December

1990 declaring 1 October as an

International Day of Older People. The

day is to acknowledge and appreciate

the enormous contributions and

achievements that older people make

to the functioning of society and the

economy.

According to the United Nations, almost

700 million people are now over the age of

60. By 2050, two billion people, over 20% of

the world’s population, will be 60 or older. The

increase in the number of older people will be

the greatest and most rapid in the developing

world, with Asia as the region with the largest

number of older persons, and Africa facing the

largest proportionate growth.

Each year, the International Day of Older

People has a different theme. Last year’s

theme was ‘Celebrating Older Human Rights

Champions’ and for 2019 the theme will be

‘The Journey to Age Equality’.

Age UK Redbridge, Barking & Havering have

been working alongside Redbridge Council

and other local organisations for many years,

arranging events to celebrate Older People’s

Day. In fact, in Redbridge, there is usually a

whole week of celebration and this year is no

exception!

There are events planned throughout the

week, ranging from information sessions

about keeping safe at home, to health and

wellbeing, leisure and culture, and there

will also be opportunities to try out new

exercises in classes around the borough for

free, and a celebratory lunch with the Mayor

of Redbridge at the Allan Burgess Centre on

2 October.

In fact, Wanstead’s Allan Burgess Centre has an

event each day during the week commencing

30 September. There will be a performance

from Redbridge Music Lounge, the Redbridge

Rhymesters will be having a poetry session

with the children from Snaresbrook Primary

School, a general knowledge quiz will take

place and a comedy performance will keep

everyone entertained, all in addition to the

Mayor’s celebratory lunch.

Programmes are available from the centre and

from local libraries, as well as from Age UK in

Ilford. We hope to see lots of people enjoying

events throughout the week. Do pop in to the

Allan Burgess Centre and join us and enjoy

one of the events as well as a home-cooked

meal, which will include a free glass of wine on

the day of the celebratory lunch.

Georgian survivor

At this month’s meeting of the Wanstead Historical Society,

Lynn Haseldine Jones will be discussing Snaresbrook House, a grade IIlisted

Georgian mansion overlooking Eagle Pond

Snaresbrook House is one of the littleknown

gems of Wanstead, a Georgian

mansion that has survived into the

21st century. When I moved into the Lodge

at Snaresbrook House six years ago, I set

about researching the history of the house,

which has been a fascinating exercise (and

one which still continues).

Local people may remember that Snaresbrook

House was empty for a number of years

before being turned into a development

of apartments. Many may also remember

that the building was occupied by the local

council from just after the war until the 1980s,

variously being the borough treasurer’s

department and the architects’ department.

Before the Second World War, Snaresbrook

House was a large and no doubt luxurious

private house with grand gardens and a fine

view over Eagle Pond, and home over the

years to a range of interesting people. The

last family to occupy it as a home were the

Lustys, John Lusty having made his fortune

in that well-known delicacy of the Victorian

period, turtle soup, which often featured on

the menu of the Lord Mayor’s banquets. Other

members of the family were involved in the

manufacture of Lloyd Loom furniture.

Before the Lustys, the house was the private

residence of diamond mine owner David

Symons, whose initials can be seen to this

day on the fine ornate metal gates to the

development, along with the date 1900. David

and his wife Beatrice Maud had three children,

and employed several servants to look after

the house and garden, and to occupy the

Lodge. Beatrice came from a theatrical family,

and the lawns of Snaresbrook House were

sometimes used for operatic and theatrical

performances.

Earlier occupants include the Fowler family,

in whose time the house was known as Eagle

House. There were eagles on the gateposts,

but the originals have disappeared. The

present eagles are new replacements.

Samuel Ellis, who lived there in the 1870s,

was a merchant whose business specialised

in the supply of ivory and ostrich feathers.

He gave to the people of Wanstead the

drinking fountain, which still stands close to

Snaresbrook station.

Other occupants included a wine merchant

and a soap manufacturer. At the time of the

demolition of Wanstead House in 1823, the

man living at Snaresbrook House was James

Scratton, who treated it as a country retreat.

I am continuing my research to discover

more about the occupants of this fine house,

particularly in the 18th century. It is intriguing

to think the house may be even older, with

origins as a farmhouse in perhaps the late 17th

century. The house still has many secrets to be

discovered.

Lynn’s talk will take place at Wanstead

Library on 7 October from 8pm (visitors:

£3). Call 07949 026 212

company, Ellicott Construction (info@ellicottconstruction.co.uk) we recreated

the entire front bay window to match to the correct period designs present

throughout the rest of the road.

The house was further enhanced with the installation of a standard

MIND

THE GAP!

We asked DR AMJAD MALIK to

explain why dental implants offer

the best solution for missing teeth

Who can benefit from having implants?

– Almost anyone with one or more teeth missing.

Good As You: from pride to prejudice 30 years of gay Britain with Paul Flynn

What difference do implants make?

– Implants can noticeably improve a person’s

confidence and self-esteem, but there are further

benefits. Take my father. Before he had implants,

he would choose only soft foods that were easier

to eat with his dentures, rather than what he

liked. After the implants he was able to eat anything,

and was happier to dine out. Not only

could he chew his food properly which

improved his general well-being; he also looked

better and younger.

Good As You is an important book that celebrates the seismic shif tha turned gay men in Britain from enemies to

friends of the state. It’s a story of how the power of pop culture can place real pressure on the government and the

media, to make tangible steps towards change. From ‘Sma ltown Boy’ to same sex ma riage, Paul interviews the figures

integral to his own personal

journey and to so many

young gay men who found

their voices were fina ly

being heard in the 1980s.

This is the story of public

outrage and persona loss,

the (not always legal) highs

and the desperate lows, and

the final co lective victory

as gay people were fina ly

recognised, as Good As You.

Copies of the book wi l be

available for purchase

Why are implants better than other solutions?

– Because they are fixed into your jaw, just as

natural teeth are. Alternative solutions are

removable dentures, which can be embarrassing,

and unromantic, or bridges, for which good

teeth either side of the gap have to be damaged.

How long do implants last?

– There is no limit but like natural teeth, they

need maintenance and servicing. The mouth is a

dynamic machine: teeth and implants undergo

strong mechanical forces, so regular checkups and

hygiene visits are a must, as with natural teeth.

By Paul Flynn

Published by Ebury

Press on 5 th July 2018

£9.99 | Paperback

Good As You is an important book that celebrates

the seismic shift tha turned gay men in Britain

from enemies to friends of the state. It’s a story of

how the power of pop culture can place real pressure

on the government and the media, to make

tangible steps towards change.

From ‘Sma ltown Boy’ to same sex ma riage, Paul

interviews the figures integral to his own

personal journey and to so many young gay men

who found their voices were fina ly being heard in

the 1980s. Paul speaks to Ho ly Johnson about anthems,

Kylie Minogue about icons, and Will Young

and Davina McCa l about the landmark of reality

TV. He speaks to Gary Hailes about being half of

the first gay couple on EastEnders, and to David

Furnish about being in one of the first publica ly

celebrated gay couples in the UK.
