Wanstead Village Directory<br />

PO Box 2491, Ilford, IG1 8JT<br />

Welcome...<br />

Last month saw the fringe, trail and festival –<br />

Wanstead’s annual trio of community-spirited<br />

activities – delight residents and visitors alike.<br />

The full event titles are never needed. We know<br />

the fringe means a mix of theatre, comedy, music<br />

and the arts. We know the trail means a diverse<br />

display of artistic creations. We know the festival<br />

means a community celebration… and a nun<br />

driving a mobile piano. They are our three singlename<br />

celebrities, the Madonna, Cher and Shakira of<br />

Wanstead. What a mark of success to be known by a<br />

single name!<br />

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

would smell as sweet.” True as that may be, the Bard obviously<br />

overlooked the power of being mononymous. Shakespeare<br />

himself, Madonna, Cher and Shakira, even Napoleon. Five<br />

names that require no more detail to convey an identity. Five<br />

personalities encapsulated by a single moniker. Five people that<br />

by any other name would be a little more… anonymous.<br />

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

any other name Madonna would, of course, still be in vogue,<br />

Napoleon would have still met his Waterloo and Cher would still<br />

believe in life after love. Names are important, but the people<br />

behind them more so. As Shakespeare tells us, a name is “nor<br />

hand, nor foot, nor arm, nor face, nor any other part belonging to<br />

a man.” It’s substance over style, actions over words, content over<br />

hype. What you are is more important than who you are.<br />

So, as we look forward to future fringes, trails<br />

and festivals – or Madonna, Cher and<br />

Shakira tour dates – we can be confident<br />

they will each live up to their<br />

(unimportant) name.<br />

Redbridge Council<br />

has ended its<br />

relationship with<br />

waste management<br />

contractor Amey, to<br />

deliver the borough’s<br />

collection services<br />

in-house. “Until this<br />

summer, the council<br />

were tied into a<br />

12-year contract<br />

with a private<br />

waste management<br />

company. Ending<br />

the contract means<br />

the council now has<br />

complete control<br />

over waste and<br />

giving the council<br />

more freedom to<br />

improve services,”<br />

Local duo continue to spread<br />

kindness across Wanstead<br />

Bigbelly smart bin installed on<br />

Snaresbrook Road next to Eagle Pond<br />

Mark Mountney and Elsa Arnold<br />

at last month’s Wanstead Festival<br />

The Wanstead Fringe provided an ideal<br />

opportunity to revisit the popularity of<br />

last November’s local World Kindness Day<br />

celebrations. “The Fringe started with Elsa<br />

hosting a ceramic workshop, making kindness<br />

messages to be displayed at various shops.<br />

We were also at the festival, where we had a<br />

kindness tree again… We’ve got lots more<br />

exciting things happening this year, so watch<br />

this space!” said Mark Mountney of Zoology<br />

hair salon, who organised the activities with<br />

anti-bullying ambassador Elsa Arnold.<br />

Spring-flowering bulb giveaway and<br />

planting weekend this month<br />

Redbridge Council has installed a hi-tech<br />

Bigbelly bin on Snaresbrook Road as part of<br />

work undertaken with residents and the City<br />

of London to clear up Eagle Pond. “It’s a smart<br />

bin that can accommodate more rubbish,<br />

lets the council know when it’s full, requires<br />

emptying less often and reduces the risk of<br />

litter blowing out and into the pond,” said<br />

Councillor Jo Blackman. Big Belly bins hold<br />

roughly eight times more rubbish than a<br />

regular bin and compact waste automatically<br />

throughout the day.<br />

Redbridge Council will be giving away<br />

spring-flowering bulbs to the community this<br />

month, encouraging everyone to plant them<br />

as part of the Big Bulb Planting Weekend (18<br />

to 20 <strong>October</strong>). “This is part of a borough-wide<br />

movement to bring everybody together to<br />

beautify our streets… Bulbs can be planted<br />

in spaces that benefit the community,” said<br />

a spokesperson. The bulbs – which include<br />

daffodils, tulips and crocuses – must be<br />

requested by 10 <strong>October</strong> and can be collected<br />

from Wanstead Library. Visit wnstd.com/blbs<br />

Free on-street parking has been<br />

doubled to one hour<br />

Storytime with a difference: family<br />

drag queen performance at library<br />

Leader of the Council,<br />

Councillor Jas Athwal<br />

Redbridge Council has doubled the amount<br />

of time drivers can park for free on the<br />

borough’s high streets from 30 minutes to one<br />

hour. “This will be a real boost for our high<br />

streets and help revitalise the local economy<br />

whilst making sure there is still a good level<br />

of turnover in parking bays – giving as many<br />

people as possible the opportunity to use<br />

parking spaces to pop to the shops,” said<br />

Councillor Jas Athwal. Motorists can activate<br />

the free on-street parking via the Ringo app or<br />

at an upgraded pay and display machine.<br />

The Environment Agency has announced a<br />

day of community engagement as part of the<br />

River Roding Project, which aims to improve<br />

local river defences. “Heavy rain has caused<br />

the river to flood the local area eight times in<br />

the past 100 years,” said a spokesperson. The<br />

project involves the construction of a flood<br />

storage area to hold back high flows upstream<br />

in rural Essex. Residents are invited to find<br />

out more and give their views at Woodford<br />

Station, Snakes Lane East on 17 <strong>October</strong> from<br />

12 noon to 6pm. Call 03708 506 506<br />

An aspiring young actor from Wanstead has<br />

spoken of his enjoyment after being cast<br />

in a professional production of The Railway<br />

Children for last month’s Wanstead Fringe.<br />

“There was never a dull moment and I couldn’t<br />

have wished for a better experience, from latenight<br />

rehearsals to the adrenaline rush before<br />

each show! I learnt so much from working<br />

with such a warm, friendly and professional<br />

cast,” said 14-year-old Dashiell Ratcliffe. “There<br />

was a lovely family bond working with a cast<br />

so closely, and I already miss the buzz of it all!”<br />

A defibrillator will be installed at Wanstead<br />

defibrillator from neighbouring Linkside Lawn<br />

Tennis Club. “The club is pleased to advise that<br />

John is making good progress. The club would<br />

Join local historian for a wander<br />

around Snaresbrook<br />

Spooky forest: Halloween event<br />

in Wanstead Park<br />

The Great Eastern Railway<br />

brackets at Snaresbrook Station<br />

Local historian Lynn Haseldine Jones will<br />

lead a walk around Snaresbrook this month<br />

looking at the evidence for commuters.<br />

“We begin at Snaresbrook Station, where<br />

the railway first came in 1856, changing the<br />

nature of the village from a predominantly<br />

Georgian settlement to a bustling Victorian<br />

suburb. There is still evidence of the Great<br />

Eastern Railway, hardly noticed by passengers<br />

on the busy Central Line,” said Lynn. The free<br />

you might have read Iain Ambler’s<br />

update on attempts to rewild (restore<br />

an area of land to its natural state) parts<br />

of Wanstead as a way of improving<br />

biodiversity in the area.<br />

Our survey of the trial site on George Green<br />

revealed more than 80 species – highlighting<br />

the importance of allowing small areas of<br />

green space to grow a little wilder during<br />

the summer months. Here are just some<br />

Tackling Crime<br />

Wanstead Village ward councillors Jo Blackman, Daniel Morgan-Thomas and<br />

Paul Donovan discuss crime and the work they do to keep crime rates<br />

low, and urge residents to engage with local police<br />

Rates of reported crime are relatively<br />

low in Wanstead Village. Social<br />

media can exaggerate the risk of<br />

crime as we can hear more quickly about<br />

incidents that we wouldn’t otherwise be<br />

aware of.<br />

But every crime committed is one too many,<br />

and as Wanstead Village councillors, we are<br />

doing all we can to make our ward even safer.<br />

Central government cuts have had a drastic<br />

impact on policing levels as well as the level<br />

of support provided to vulnerable people and<br />

young people.<br />

We have campaigned for more resources for<br />

our local police and were pleased to hear that<br />

there is now a full team of two police officers<br />

(PC Paul Spencer and PC Hannah Vincent) and<br />

one community support officer (PCSO Shyam<br />

Aubeelack) after a period of reduced capacity.<br />

One area where the council can help is<br />

with CCTV and automatic number plate<br />

recognition (ANPR) cameras. We were<br />

pleased to hear that CCTV and ANPR cameras<br />

recently installed by the council following<br />

requests from us and the police have proved<br />

an effective deterrent locally, and we have<br />

identified other cameras in need of an<br />

upgrade in our ward.<br />

We meet regularly with the local police and<br />

can raise concerns where residents contact us<br />

with specific points about problem areas. We<br />

also regularly attend Neighbourhood Watch<br />

meetings to follow up local issues.<br />

We encourage all members of the<br />

public to ensure all crimes are reported,<br />

otherwise it is impossible for us or the police<br />

to follow up.<br />

Left to right: Jo Blackman,<br />

Paul Donovan and Daniel<br />

Morgan-Thomas<br />

Even if the police are unable to respond<br />

immediately, reports help them identify<br />

patterns of behaviour, target patrols to certain<br />

areas and build up their intelligence.<br />

The local police hold regular drop-in sessions,<br />

which are an opportunity to raise any local<br />

concerns. These are detailed on the Wanstead<br />

Village Directory event listings pages.<br />

Residents are also welcome to attend our<br />

advice service, which takes place at 10am<br />

on the second and fourth Saturday of every<br />

month at the vestry, Christ Church.<br />

Working together, the community, council<br />

and police can help tackle crime in Wanstead<br />

Village. And we will continue to do what we<br />

can to tackle crime in our area.<br />

Meet and… Greet?<br />

On 3 <strong>October</strong>, Wanstead residents will get the chance to quiz<br />

London City Airport representatives about their expansion proposals.<br />

John Stewart of campaign group HACAN East reports<br />

London City Airport has extended<br />

the consultation on its expansion<br />

proposals in its draft Master Plan to<br />

18 <strong>October</strong>. The airport wants to almost<br />

double flight numbers from today’s levels,<br />

end the 24-hour weekend break and bring<br />

in more planes in the early morning and<br />

late evening.<br />

The proposals have proved highly<br />

controversial. The Mayor of Newham called<br />

the draft Master Plan “fundamentally flawed”.<br />

Other local authorities have come out against<br />

the proposals and local residents from<br />

many parts of London have been sending in<br />

objections. Climate change activists have also<br />

raised big concerns.<br />

London City Airport does seem to have<br />

miscalculated just how much opposition<br />

its proposals would generate. When the<br />

consultation ends, it will look at the responses<br />

and publish a final Master Plan towards the<br />

end of this year. If it does decide to take any<br />

of the proposals forward, the airport will need<br />

to draw up a detailed planning application to<br />

Newham Council, the planning authority for<br />

the airport. It will be required to consult on its<br />

proposals before submitting the application.<br />

It means the earliest any application is likely to<br />

be considered will be the middle of next year.<br />

London City Airport has also been asked<br />

to look again at its flight paths. It narrowed<br />

and concentrated all its flight paths in 2016,<br />

resulting in a five-fold increase in complaints<br />

to the airport. Parts of Wanstead are directly<br />

under these flight paths. The flight paths will<br />

be reconsidered whether or not expansion<br />

takes place. It is part of wider airspace changes<br />

taking place at all airports in London and the<br />

South East as air traffic controllers move to a<br />

satellite system to guide planes.<br />

London City Airport expects to consult on<br />

options for altered flight paths in 2021. Almost<br />

certainly, one of the options it will put forward<br />

will be for flight paths to be rotated during<br />

the day to give communities a break from<br />

the noise. This would tie in with Heathrow’s<br />

commitment when it introduces its new flight<br />

paths to give all communities a break from<br />

the noise each day. These flight path changes<br />

bring some hope for people in Wanstead but<br />

they are unlikely to be introduced until about<br />

2024. The reason for the delay is that changing<br />

flight paths at all airports in London and the<br />

South East is a complex task as the airspace is<br />

among the busiest in the world.<br />

In the immediate term, though, the concern<br />

is London City’s proposals for expansion. You<br />

can find more details about these, plus some<br />

handy hints on making a response, on our<br />

website.<br />

For more information on HACAN East and<br />

the consultation, visit hacaneast.org.uk<br />

A public meeting to be attended by<br />

airport representatives will take place at<br />

Wanstead Library on 3 <strong>October</strong> from 7pm.<br />

inspired diabetic<br />

As part of Black History Month events taking place locally in <strong>October</strong>,<br />

chef Lyndon Wissart will be explaining how he managed to cure his<br />

Type 2 diabetes in 105 days… without medication<br />

My name is Lyndon Wissart and I<br />

am from London. I have recently<br />

undertaken a journey, which<br />

has involved tackling and overcoming<br />

struggles with my health.<br />

In 2015 I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes,<br />

with indications that I was in a danger zone<br />

with the symptoms involved. Since then I<br />

have managed to cure myself of diabetes<br />

without medication. I have also written a book<br />

called The Inspired Diabetic, which details my<br />

experience in the hope I can help others with<br />

the same condition.<br />

Though my parents are of Jamaican heritage,<br />

I am originally from London, and have been<br />

trained as a professional chef with 30 years of<br />

experience under my apron in restaurants and<br />

hotels around the capital. According to current<br />

statistics, people from a BAME background<br />

have a greater chance of developing Type 2<br />

diabetes (people of African-Caribbean decent<br />

are three times more likely).<br />

It has become an increasingly undeniable<br />

truth that the diabetes epidemic affects<br />

people globally and the fact that these<br />

unfortunate circumstances can be changed –<br />

and even rectified – with adjustments to diet<br />

and lifestyle makes this an essential subject<br />

to address, which is what I have tried to do by<br />

writing my story, charting the steps I took to<br />

reverse my own blood sugar levels.<br />

The Inspired Diabetic is a book about lifestyle,<br />

nutrition, fitness, exercise and, of course,<br />

diabetes. I believe my story will be of interest<br />

to many, with diabetes affecting over 400<br />

million people worldwide.<br />

Changes in lifestyle and diet means diabetes<br />

is one of the fastest growing diseases on the<br />

planet. It is also the subject of growing media<br />

interest as journalists become aware of the<br />

scale of the disease.<br />

Here follows my blood sugar level-reversing<br />

journey, which is amazing. This was all done<br />

naturally, without medication. As a general<br />

guide, haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) levels of less<br />

than or equal to 40 mmol/mol is normal.<br />

• z<strong>October</strong> 2015:<br />

• zNovember 2015:<br />

• zDecember 2015:<br />

The Environment Agency is working<br />

with Redbridge Council to reduce<br />

flooding to homes and businesses in<br />

Woodford and surrounding areas from the<br />

River Roding. The river has a long history<br />

of flooding, most noticeably in 2000, when<br />

over 400 properties flooded in Woodford.<br />

We are currently working on a bid for<br />

funding from the Mayor of London’s Good<br />

Growth Fund (a £70 million regeneration<br />

programme to support growth and<br />

community development in London), with a<br />

decision due around <strong>October</strong> time. If we are<br />

successful, we will have extra money to carry<br />

out environmental enhancements along the<br />

River Roding corridor. This will bring a wealth<br />

of environmental and social benefits to the<br />

local area.<br />

On 17 <strong>October</strong> from 12 noon to 6pm, we<br />

will be hosting a local drop-in event at<br />

Woodford Station to share proposed plans<br />

of both embankment refurbishments and<br />

environmental enhancements with the<br />

local community. We want your thoughts<br />

and ideas on how we can help enhance the<br />

environment.<br />

We are a diverse team of people at the<br />

Environment Agency who are all passionate<br />

about the environment, our rivers and<br />

helping people at risk of flooding. We play a<br />

vital role in planning for and responding to<br />

flooding from rivers and the sea and we work<br />

in partnership with local authorities and the<br />

emergency services to ensure the responses<br />

are coordinated. We have a state-of-theart<br />

incident room from where we plan and<br />

respond to flooding and other environmental<br />

incidents 365 days a year.<br />

As a category one<br />

incident responder<br />

under the Civil<br />

Contingencies<br />

Act 2004,<br />

it’s our<br />

responsibility<br />

to warn and<br />

inform the<br />

public about<br />

flooding and<br />

other incidents.<br />

Before a flood occurs, we work with the<br />

Meteorological Office to understand forecasts<br />

for severe weather and interpret where<br />

flooding could impact local communities and<br />

infrastructure. We issue flood warnings to<br />

people who live near rivers when we expect<br />

flooding to occur to enable them to stay safe<br />

and reduce damage to property.<br />

As you may expect, we were involved in<br />

protecting people and property and warning<br />

residents during the recent flooding at Whaley<br />

Bridge in the Goyt Valley. But locally, our<br />

site-based staff ensure the River Roding is<br />

flowing as effectively as possible. This includes<br />

carrying out proactive work in Chigwell,<br />

Loughton and Dagenham before the bad<br />

weather arrives, such as maintaining river<br />

channels, clearing blockages and operating<br />

flood defences. The majority of the riverbanks<br />

should be maintained by the riparian owner,<br />

the landowner adjacent to the riverbank.<br />

During a flood, we deploy staff to the<br />

areas affected to gather information on<br />

the impacts and provide advice to help<br />

people respond and recover. We provide<br />

a flood warning service called Floodline<br />

(0345 988 11 88), so people can stay up to date<br />

with the latest reports. We also respond to<br />

a wide range of other major environmental<br />

incidents such as pollution, waste fires,<br />

fish kills and waste crime, so if you see any<br />

environmental incidents, please report them<br />

(0800 80 70 60), and if you own land next to a<br />

river, please be aware of your responsibilities<br />

(wnstd.com/watercourse).<br />

Floating<br />

IDEAS<br />

Rising at Molehill Green in Essex, the River Roding passes<br />

through the Wanstead and Woodford area en route to<br />

the Thames, bringing with it a very real flood risk to local<br />

homes. In the fifth of a series of articles charting the River<br />

Roding Project – which aims to reduce that risk – Andy Naish<br />

from the Environment Agency explains their incident<br />

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

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

important achievement, says Donna Mizzi, Art Trail Wanstead founder<br />

some reason, there’s art<br />

everywhere on the High Street!”<br />

“For<br />

“Gosh, there must be a helluva lot<br />

of artists living in Wanstead.” “What’s that<br />

cow doing in Majestic Wine Warehouse?”<br />

These were just a few of the comments<br />

overheard during September’s Art Trail<br />

Wanstead. This trail has been the biggest and<br />

best in its 10 years, according to many visitors<br />

and artists. Almost 80 venues participated in<br />

the free 16-day event organised by Art Group<br />

Wanstead volunteers. Some small shops<br />

showed a few samples while larger businesses<br />

accommodated work by several artists. Florist<br />

Lillies of Wanstead even gave over its whole<br />

front window to flower art by delighted Leila<br />

Skye, while trail supporter The Stow Brothers<br />

used its window and walls to showcase the<br />

event. About 150 amateur and professional<br />

artists took part, and at least the same<br />

number of school children. In addition, 142 art<br />

postcards went on display, most created by<br />

local residents.<br />

Children from Wanstead Church School<br />

and Aldersbrook Primary made hundreds<br />

of clocks for the event’s Time theme, many<br />

of which were displayed outside the Corner<br />

House. Other works ranged from paintings<br />

to photography, from pottery and jewellery<br />

to mosaic work, and varied in scale from tiny<br />

masterpieces in a miniature gallery to Karen<br />

Humpage’s huge papier-mâché cow.<br />

Then there was the Wanstead Festival with<br />

stalls from designer makers and artists,<br />

and a wide range of free workshops.<br />

Snaresbrook Primary School produced<br />

seasonal trees to embellish and later show<br />

at the school as part of Victoria Senett and<br />

Emma English’s recycling workshop. Marsh<br />

Quilters demonstrated their colourful and<br />

Donna Mizzi joins cow creator Karen<br />

Humpage (right). Arnold the cow collected<br />

almost £120 for Compassion in World Farming<br />

intricate craft and ran popular workshops.<br />

Alison Stenhouse and Sally Asbury helped<br />

children make marine-scene artworks to draw<br />

attention to the Sea-Changers charity, while<br />

Eugene Coyle encouraged postcard designing<br />

and paper-plate clock making by children. He<br />

also sold contributed postcards for charity.<br />

But the giant trail workshop, which invariably<br />

attracts the biggest participation, was the<br />

Lego “Build” attraction organised by Adult<br />

Fans of Lego. “We had more than 200 separate<br />

models made by our artist children (and a few<br />

parents!) on display all day,” said exhausted –<br />

but happy – co-ordinator Lee McGinty.<br />

Meanwhile, other work provoked discussions.<br />

A photographic work by psychotherapist and<br />

artist Victoria Baskerville at The Duke showed<br />

phones obscuring the callers’ faces. Victoria<br />

explained: “We could argue that mobile<br />

phones have bought more connectedness<br />

through social media, but at the same time<br />

moved us away from ‘being in the moment’,<br />

connecting and being truly in relationship<br />

with each other.”<br />

Anti-Semitism: discuss<br />

David Rosenberg is a lifelong campaigner against fascism and racism, and<br />

at this month’s East London Humanists meeting, he will be giving his<br />

perspective on the scourge of anti-Semitism and inviting discussion<br />

After the horrors of the Holocaust<br />

were exposed to the world, most<br />

people thought it inconceivable<br />

that anti-Semitism could surface again in<br />

any serious form, but anti-Semitism has<br />

proven to be a light sleeper in Britain. And<br />

while abuse and attacks targeting Muslims<br />

and refugees are more commonplace, the<br />

number of anti-Semitic incidents in Britain<br />

in recent years has begun to rise. It has<br />

rarely been absent from the headlines, not<br />

just because of the reported incidents, but<br />

because it has become a political football.<br />

I grew up as a Jew in inner London, then later<br />

in Ilford. From around 16 years old, I became<br />

an anti-racist activist. I instinctively associated<br />

British anti-Semitism with the political right<br />

and far right. In 2011 I published a book called<br />

Battle for the East End, which focused on<br />

Oswald Mosley’s British Union of Fascists,<br />

a fundamentally anti-Semitic movement<br />

that built 500 branches around the country<br />

in the 1930s, and won adherents among all<br />

classes to its poisonous ideology. In the more<br />

mainstream right wing, I was aware it was a<br />

Conservative government that passed Britain‘s<br />

first modern immigration law – the Aliens<br />

Act – which was directed overwhelmingly<br />

against Jewish migrants from Eastern Europe.<br />

Fortunately, my grandparents were able to<br />

get in.<br />

Several decades later – in the 1980s – when<br />

Mrs Thatcher appointed three Jews to her<br />

cabinet, I remember former Prime Minister<br />

Harold MacMillan lamenting the fact her<br />

Cabinet now contained too many “old<br />

Estonians” and too few old Etonians.<br />

But much of the media coverage has centred<br />

on allegations against the Labour Party –<br />

the party that introduced legislation about<br />

equalities – and specifically against Jeremy<br />

Corbyn. I was active in the Labour Party for<br />

a few years in the 1980s, and rejoined in 2015<br />

when Corbyn stood for the leadership. I<br />

knew very well how strong his commitment<br />

was to supporting minorities and at first the<br />

allegations struck me as bizarre (and they still<br />

do), but there is no doubt that this perception<br />

has come to be believed by significant<br />

numbers of Jews, and we need to understand<br />

that. Corbyn is well known too for being a<br />

strong advocate of justice for Palestinians.<br />

Somewhere along the line, attitudes to Jews,<br />

on the one hand, and attitudes towards Israeli<br />

nationalism and Israeli government policies<br />

on the other, have become blurred in an<br />

unhelpful way. Under considerable pressure,<br />

the Labour Party adopted what is known as<br />

the International Holocaust Remembrance<br />

Alliance definition of anti-Semitism, with a set<br />

of associated examples, though the examples<br />

are controversial and the actual breadth of<br />

this alliance is certainly open to question.<br />

This is just some of the history and some of<br />

the issues I look forward to unpicking. I hope<br />

you will come and unpick them with me!<br />

Gardening movement<br />

Marian Temple from the Wanstead Community Gardeners takes a look<br />

at the Wanstead Place Clinic garden, a site that epitomises the group’s<br />

ethos of collective effort, but is also home to some mystery goings-on<br />

Our latest garden has really taken on<br />

a life of its own. Planted only in April<br />

in order to catch the spring showers,<br />

which didn’t come, it has been lovingly<br />

watered by the wonderful Carmel who<br />

works in the British Heart Foundation shop.<br />

She has the enviable ability of involving<br />

the whole world in the watering. Thus, the<br />

neighbours, the minister one side and the<br />

man in the tall house the other side, have<br />

been filling watering cans and barrels.<br />

Helen and Eileen who work at the clinic have<br />

been doing their bit, as well as a neighbour in<br />

Church Path. This really has turned out to be<br />

a community garden with us, the Wanstead<br />

Community Gardeners, setting it up and the<br />

locals taking over from there. This is exactly<br />

as we would like it to be. It makes sense. The<br />

garden flourished, and in seemingly no time<br />

was awash with colour. This is the only one<br />

of our patches which has the luxury of being<br />

regularly watered. What a difference that<br />

makes!<br />

Right from the beginning this garden seems<br />

to have had a life of its own. It wasn’t long<br />

before four fairies appeared, plus two frogs<br />

and a pair of boots! Two scarecrows arrived<br />

on the scene plus a cat missing a hind leg,<br />

two rabbits, one without ears, and so it goes<br />

on. The latest addition to the menagerie is a<br />

meerkat!<br />

This is not our normal style but something<br />

else. The children pass by on their way to<br />

the Church of England school every day. The<br />

mums visit the clinic with their toddlers, as<br />

do elderly people coming to have their feet<br />

done. Passers-by enjoy this corner of quirkery<br />

with its colourful flowers appearing in what<br />

was a desolate empty patch and its everincreasing<br />

population of who knows what?<br />

It really is a winner and maybe will become<br />

as much a Wanstead iconic garden as is the<br />

Corner House garden and the fountain beds<br />

on George Green.<br />

Now where is the mystery? This concerns the<br />

pair of scarecrows. Not only do they move<br />

about, sometimes appearing in friendly<br />

conflab, at other times back to back, having<br />

had a tiff maybe? More mysterious than that is<br />

the fact they frequently change their clothes!<br />

They have rainwear for inclement weather and<br />

quite a wardrobe. Barbie watch out!<br />

All this makes this corner an ongoing delight,<br />

full of surprises. Who could have guessed<br />

in April that Wanstead would gain such a<br />

successful addition to its street patchwork<br />

gardens? This one really makes people smile.<br />

START-UP, START RIGHT<br />

Starting your own business can be an exciting but worrying endeavour.<br />

Derek Inkpin, a partner at local solicitors Wiseman Lee, highlights some<br />

of the things you should consider when going it alone<br />

All the ins and outs of a new business<br />

– licences, data protection, satisfying<br />

customer enquiries and employing<br />

people – may at first seem like quite a<br />

mountain to climb. So, where do you start?<br />

Carrying out research of the marketplace<br />

for your chosen business as well as taking<br />

sound business advice is vital. Let HMRC<br />

know you are going to be self-employed.<br />

Writing a business plan, talking to your bank<br />

about financial support and developing your<br />

business brand will all be important.<br />

You will need to decide which business<br />

structure suits your needs. You could choose<br />

to set up as a sole trader. This is the simplest<br />

type of business which is owned entirely by<br />

you. As such, you are entitled to keep all the<br />

profits after tax has been paid, although you<br />

will also be personally liable for any losses. If<br />

this seems a scary prospect, you could set up<br />

as a limited company – where your personal<br />

finances are separate from the company. The<br />

downside is this can require more work on<br />

the company’s reporting and management.<br />

The third option is to set up your business<br />

as a partnership. This is the easiest way<br />

for two or more people to run a business<br />

together. Business debts are shared, as are the<br />

responsibilities, but you will have joint liability<br />

with your partner for any losses.<br />

Once you are registered you need to think<br />

about the many legal aspects of running a<br />

business. Are there any licences you need?<br />

For example, if it’s a retail store, will there be<br />

music playing? Will you be selling food or<br />

alcohol? Each of these and more require their<br />

own separate licences.<br />

You also need to think carefully about data<br />

protection. You may think your start-up<br />

business is too small, but if you plan on<br />

hiring staff or storing any information about<br />

customers who use your service, then you’ll<br />

need to ensure this data is kept secure, up<br />

to date and accurate. It is also vital that the<br />

people you are collecting the data from are<br />

aware they can see the information you have<br />

on them and correct it if it’s wrong. They also<br />

have the right to request it is deleted. Before<br />

your business begins collecting any data, you<br />

must tell the Information Commissioner’s<br />

Office how the information will be used or you<br />

could face a large fine.<br />

Perhaps the most daunting aspect of starting<br />

your own business is being responsible for<br />

other people’s livelihoods. For this reason,<br />

it is paramount you follow the relevant<br />

employment laws, including payroll, national<br />

insurance, rights to work, pensions and<br />

employment contracts. Do also remember you<br />

are responsible for the health and safety of<br />

both your staff and your customers while they<br />

are in your place of work.<br />

All of the above, of course, comes with a need<br />

to work hard. Good luck!<br />

Park, Wanstead, E11 2PU. For more<br />

Celebrating Culture<br />

Fabula Festival – Redbridge Libraries’ biggest cultural event of the year<br />

– is back this autumn and promises to delight residents with a jampacked<br />

programme. Anita Luby reports<br />

Fabula Festival (2 to 13 <strong>October</strong>) is a<br />

celebration of the arts and libraries<br />

and their power to transform lives.<br />

It’s delivered through a programme<br />

of performances, children’s events,<br />

author talks, films, writing programmes,<br />

workshops and arts projects. It gives<br />

residents the opportunity to participate<br />

in a range of new and exciting activities<br />

delivered by a range of local and national<br />

organisations, showcasing the very best<br />

in literature, music, drama, dance, film, art<br />

and technology.<br />

Festival highlights include an evening with<br />

author Lucinda Dickens Hawksley at Wanstead<br />

Library (10 <strong>October</strong>, 7.30pm). Everyone knows<br />

Charles Dickens’ novels, but did you know<br />

he was also a keen actor, mesmerist and<br />

conjuror? Lucinda – who is also Dickens’ greatgreat-great-granddaughter<br />

– will talk about<br />

the man behind the novels: the journalist,<br />

social campaigner, dog lover, travel writer,<br />

and a man who was so influential in his own<br />

time that when he died the whole country<br />

went into mourning. She will also look at the<br />

changes he helped bring about in society,<br />

which still have resonance today.<br />

Elsewhere in the festival, there are writing<br />

workshops galore and opportunities for<br />

emerging artists to learn from established<br />

performers. Spoken word artist Yomi Greeds<br />

Sood from Apples & Snakes will be leading a<br />

masterclass for aspiring writers followed by a<br />

performance event featuring him and rising<br />

star on the poetry circuit, Debris Stephens.<br />

The ever-popular Kids Take Over events at<br />

Redbridge Central Library over the weekend<br />

of 12 and 13 <strong>October</strong> are once again delivered<br />

in partnership with Discover Story Centre.<br />

Kids of all ages will be treated to an array of<br />

Lucinda Dickens Hawksley<br />

author events such as David Litchfield, Sufiya<br />

Ahmed, Nadia Shireen and Simon Moles,<br />

writing workshops, comic book workshops,<br />

exhibitions, theatre and dance performances.<br />

There will also be opportunities to explore<br />

the world of STEAM (science, technology,<br />

engineering, arts and maths) in our awardwinning<br />

digital makerspace: Lab Central.<br />

Thanks to generous funding from Arts Council<br />

England, the festival is even bigger and<br />

better this year as we celebrate the power of<br />

libraries during National Libraries Week (7 to<br />

13 <strong>October</strong>). Focusing on the theme of libraries<br />

in the digital age, visitors to the festival will<br />

get the opportunity to discover the digital<br />

innovation taking place across Redbridge<br />

Libraries from Hublets, Yetitablets, eBooks,<br />

eMagazines, makerspaces, film streaming, a<br />

tech lending library and more. All of this can<br />

be accessed for free with your library card to<br />

open up a world of possibilities.<br />

Fabula Festival is curated and produced<br />

by Redbridge Library & Culture Service,<br />

managed by Vision RCL on behalf of<br />

Redbridge Council.<br />

FRESH<br />

FOR THE DAY AHEAD?<br />

Or did SNORING<br />

ruin your sleep last<br />

night (again)?<br />

A visit to Dr Malik at Improve Your Smile could help bring back<br />

blissful sleep, happy mornings and better functioning<br />

IN CARTOONS and television comedies, snoring has always<br />

been a source of humour. But for many sufferers and their partners,<br />

it is a serious matter. As well as damaging relationships, its<br />

effects – including poor quality of sleep and lack of sleep – can<br />

lead to far worse things. Yet strangely, research indicates that in<br />

90% of cases, snorers go untreated; most of them probably unaware<br />

help is available.<br />

HOW SERIOUS IS SNORING?<br />

Snoring is frequently, though not always, part of the condition<br />

known as Sleep Apnoea. This is characterised by a reduced<br />

capacity to breathe, or by pauses in breathing, during sleep. The<br />

pauses, called apnoea, can last from a few seconds to a few minutes,<br />

and may occur five to thirty times in an hour. Sleep Apnoea<br />

can lead to health complications such as heart disease, high blood<br />

pressure, diabetes, stroke, daytime sleepiness and difficulty in<br />

concentrating, and sufferers run a higher risk of having work-related<br />

or driving accidents.<br />

There are three types of sleep apnoea: Central Apnoea,<br />

Obstructive Apnoea and a combination of the two (Central and<br />

Obstructive). Central Apnoea results when the brain fails to activate<br />

the muscles needed for breathing during sleep. Obstructive Apnoea<br />

results when the airways collapse or are obstructed during sleep.<br />

WHAT IS THE TREATMENT?<br />

Depending on the cause and the severity of the condition, sleep<br />

apnoea can be treated using non-surgical or surgical methods.<br />

Dr Amjad Malik encourages people who snore to attend a free<br />

initial consultation. Having identified their particular problem,<br />

he is able to offer a number of solutions.<br />

In many cases, a simple and effective<br />

method is a snore guard. This is a mouth<br />

piece designed to allow the lower jaw to be<br />

thrust forward so the tongue does not fall<br />

back and obstruct the airway during sleep.<br />

These are custom-made for a perfect fit –<br />

superior to any ready-made ones.<br />

DO ONLY ADULTS SNORE?<br />

It is rare for children to snore (and can be<br />

a cause for particular concern), but Dr<br />

Malik has successfully treated children, and<br />

believes there are advantages in treating a<br />

person while they are still growing. In children<br />

and in adults, the cause of snoring<br />

can be the relationship between the shape<br />

of the palate and the size and position of<br />

the tongue, which obstructs the breathing<br />

during sleep. This can often be remedied<br />

with orthodontic treatment to realign the<br />

upper arch of teeth to give the tongue<br />

more room, so it lies in a better position.<br />

mind-body-spirit<br />

Practising qi gong promotes positivity, wellness and a balance in life,<br />

says Mina Wolton, who offers classes in the ancient mind-body-spirit<br />

system at Wanstead House<br />

My name is Mina and I have lived<br />

in Wanstead for nearly 25 years.<br />

I am a qi gong practitioner and<br />

have recently started teaching classes at<br />

Wanstead House Community centre.<br />

I have always been interested in health<br />

and wellbeing and played sports all my<br />

life. However, ill health in my thirties led<br />

me to exploring complementary therapies,<br />

particularly qi gong. What they all had in<br />

common was working with a life force and<br />

being able to tap into that energy to energise,<br />

heal and create harmony within.<br />

Qi gong, which was documented in China<br />

over 2,000 years ago, has become popular<br />

throughout the world for its many healthgiving<br />

benefits. Qi (pronounced ‘chi’) is the<br />

Chinese word for life force or energy (also<br />

known as ‘ki’ or ‘prana’).<br />

Nature is infused with qi, which is why when<br />

we are by the sea, near mountains, in forests,<br />

gardens or just looking at clouds floating in<br />

the sky, we experience qi at a deep level and<br />

feel the restorative power of that energy field<br />

in nature.<br />

Gong (or ‘kung’) means ‘work’ or ‘effort’, so<br />

qi gong is the cultivation of that qi through<br />

practice and dedication and learning how<br />

to direct its energy. It consists of static and<br />

flowing movements, which are coordinated<br />

with breathing to circulate and direct qi<br />

around the meridians (energy pathways) of<br />

the body.<br />

Just some of the many benefits of regular qi<br />

gong practice include relaxation, boosting<br />

the immune system, strengthening the body<br />

and a sense of wellbeing. The exercises are<br />

performed with a certain amount of tension<br />

but, paradoxically, in a relaxed way, and are<br />

suitable for all ages and all levels of fitness.<br />

What I have discovered through my 20 years of<br />

learning qi gong under Sifu Ram, my qi gong<br />

master, is that it is incredibly empowering. I<br />

have learnt to take personal responsibility for<br />

my health.<br />

You learn to emulate the crane (the animal<br />

that symbolises our style of qi gong), so we<br />

learn grace, strength and fluidity, which then<br />

becomes a metaphor for how to approach life.<br />

In a small, confined space in around 15 to 20<br />

minutes (as a required minimum) per day, you<br />

can do a series of exercises to promote a sense<br />

of positivity, wellness and balance in life.<br />

Mina runs monthly qi gong taster<br />

sessions starting on the first Monday of<br />

the month at Wanstead House, 21 The<br />

Green, Wanstead (four sessions: £35).<br />

The lakes in Wanstead Park are the<br />

most visible remaining features<br />

of its past as one of this country’s<br />

great landscaped gardens. All completely<br />

artificial, they are now nearly 300 years old,<br />

and for most of their history have suffered<br />

from fluctuating water levels.<br />

As the Friends have described in previous<br />

articles, this has been due to several factors:<br />

1. The failure of systems designed to supply<br />

water to the lakes from outside the park.<br />

2. The loss of much of the natural catchment<br />

area to development since 1900.<br />

3. The introduction of modern<br />

drainage systems and other<br />

services around the park, which<br />

has lowered the water table and<br />

created leak paths.<br />

4. The loss of the River Roding as a<br />

source for the Ornamental Water.<br />

5. The unfavourable geology on which much<br />

of the lake system sits.<br />

6. The lack of effective lining, or its<br />

deterioration beyond repair, in two of the<br />

most vulnerable lakes, compounded – in<br />

one case - by wartime damage.<br />

Wanstead Park was listed as a Grade II*<br />

landscape “of special interest” by English<br />

Heritage (now Historic England) in 2001,<br />

following an earlier Grade II designation in<br />

1987. Since 2009 it has been classed as “At Risk”<br />

on account of its deteriorating condition. The<br />

state of the lakes was a major factor in this.<br />

For more than a decade, the Friends of<br />

Wanstead Parklands has been working with<br />

the park’s guardians, in particular the City of<br />

London, to identify long-term solutions to the<br />

problems with the lakes. In 2013 a Wanstead<br />

Park Project Steering Committee was set up,<br />

involving all major stakeholders, to try to<br />

develop an achievable and sustainable plan<br />

for the restoration and future management of<br />

the park. Under its auspices, the consultancy<br />

LDA Design was engaged, and produced a<br />

draft Parkland Plan which has gone through<br />

several drafts as the knowledge base has<br />

developed, circumstances have changed<br />

and costs have been clarified. The latest draft<br />

proposes three themed work packages. Two of<br />

the packages are framed to meet the objective<br />

of getting Wanstead Park off the “At Risk”<br />

register. These would require a substantial<br />

capital funding package involving a grant<br />

from the National Lottery Heritage Fund. We<br />

hope to be in a position to publish details of<br />

the finalised Parkland Plan shortly.<br />

The City commissioned a hydrological survey<br />

from JBA Consulting which provided a much<br />

clearer understanding of the way the lake<br />

system works. However, the whole project<br />

was galvanised by a development in a quite<br />

different quarter. Under the requirements<br />

of the Flood and Water Management Act<br />

2010, the Environment Agency confirmed in<br />

December 2017 that the lakes in Wanstead<br />

Park, which were classified as “Large Raised<br />

Reservoirs”, should be raised to “High Risk”<br />

status, as an uncontrolled release of water<br />

in a major flood event could, in theory,<br />

put people’s lives at risk. It should be<br />

emphasised that this was not a cause for<br />

panic or a criticism of the way the lakes had<br />

been maintained, but an almost automatic<br />

consequence of the way the new regulations<br />

now dealt with lake cascades of this type.<br />

The City of London’s response was to arrange<br />

an inspection by the independent civil<br />

engineer who monitors the management of<br />

reservoirs. He advised that an engineering<br />

assessment of the dams needed to be<br />

undertaken in the first instance, as it was<br />

likely they would need to be strengthened,<br />

perhaps raised, and provided with new<br />

spillways. The engineering assessment has<br />

now been commissioned and should be<br />

completed by the end of <strong>2019</strong>. It is anticipated<br />

the modifications required could cost up to<br />

£10 million, based on what has been spent on<br />

a similar project on Hampstead Heath.<br />

As far as the City of London is concerned, a bill<br />

of this size is not good news, but potentially<br />

presents an opportunity for Wanstead Park.<br />

This was because spending to strengthen the<br />

dams would come from central, rather than<br />

RESTORING<br />

Wanstead<br />

Park<br />

In the fifth of a series of articles looking at the developing<br />

plans for restoring Wanstead Park, Richard Arnopp from the<br />

Friends of Wanstead Parklands brings us up to date on hopes<br />

to resolve the problems with the park’s lakes<br />

Epping Forest, budgets, and it would make<br />

sense to carry out other improvements and<br />

repairs to the lakes at the same time. Any<br />

non-statutory element of the work could<br />

potentially be used as match funding for a<br />

parallel bid to the National Lottery Heritage<br />

Fund. A grant from that quarter could be<br />

used to cover a range of non-water-related<br />

improvements to the park, and potentially<br />

offer the prospect of covering more ground<br />

on a shorter timescale than had ever been<br />

contemplated, albeit perhaps with a rather<br />

later starting date than previously hoped.<br />

Given the likely deadline for the completion<br />

of works on the lakes, timings for a lottery bid<br />

would be very tight if any of the spending was<br />

to be used as match funding. This is a once<br />

and for all opportunity which must be got<br />

right!<br />

Similar projects in Highams Park and<br />

Hampstead Heath have brought big<br />

improvements, including in aesthetic terms.<br />

The work will inevitably be disruptive, but the<br />

City of London intends to plan and carry it out<br />

carefully, taking into account local concerns.<br />

Listen and learn<br />

In the 18th of a series of articles, David Bird discusses the work of<br />

Redbridge Music Society and introduces us to Spanish saxophonist<br />

Manu Brazo, who will be performing at Wanstead Library this month<br />

The current aims of Redbridge Music<br />

Society are to promote and support<br />

talented young musicians in the<br />

early years of their careers and to provide<br />

a diverse range of musical genres to the<br />

Redbridge public. This month, outstanding<br />

young saxophonist Manu Brazo, together<br />

with award-winning piano accompanist<br />

Bryan Evans MBE, will perform music by<br />

Vaughan Williams, Verdi (Traviata Fantasy),<br />

de Falla, Gershwin and others.<br />

Twenty-six-year-old Manu Brazo was born<br />

in Utrera (Seville). After completing his<br />

undergraduate studies under Juan Jimenez at<br />

the Manuel Castillo Conservatory of Music in<br />

Seville, he continued his studies at London’s<br />

Royal College of Music (RCM) for a Masters in<br />

Performance degree. He made his concerto<br />

debut in the UK with the Guildford Symphony<br />

Orchestra in 2016, playing the Glazunov<br />

Saxophone Concerto, and since then has<br />

performed with a number of orchestras,<br />

including the London City Orchestra.<br />

Manu has won many awards and prizes,<br />

including the 2016 Manuel Castillo<br />

Conservatory Concerto Competition. He<br />

was invited to join the London Sinfonietta<br />

Academy and to collaborate with the Youth<br />

Musician Symphony Orchestra (YMSO). In 2018<br />

he was selected to take part in the Britten-<br />

Pears Young Artist Programme, which saw<br />

him perform at the Snape Maltings Proms<br />

conducted by Marin Alsop. He was chosen<br />

for the Tillett Trust Young Artists Platform for<br />

2018/19 and is currently a Philip and Dorothy<br />

Green <strong>2019</strong>/20 Young Artists Award holder – an<br />

award given by Making Music to celebrate the<br />

best of the UK’s young musical talent.<br />

Manu has performed at notable venues in<br />

the UK, including the Royal Opera House,<br />

and has played in Norway, Greece, Spain and<br />

Indonesia. He recently performed with Bryan<br />

Evans as the opening act for Sir Cliff Richard<br />

at the Greenwich Music Time Festival. He also<br />

opened at the official Downton Abbey live<br />

concert at Highclere Castle.<br />

Accompanist Bryan Evans studied at RCM<br />

and whilst there won all the accompanist<br />

prizes. He has performed at major UK venues,<br />

including London’s Wigmore Hall, and in many<br />

countries across the world. He has performed<br />

on BBC Radio 3 and TV and is a leading<br />

exponent of performing chamber opera from<br />

the piano and is currently music director of<br />

Diva Opera. In 1993 he was awarded an MBE<br />

for his services to music.<br />

The partnership of two such outstanding<br />

musicians promises to make Redbridge Music<br />

Society’s opening recital of its <strong>2019</strong>/20 season<br />

a very memorable event.<br />

Manu and Bryan will perform at Wanstead<br />

Library on 29 <strong>October</strong> from 8pm (tickets<br />

on the door: £10; members: £7). For<br />

In Love with the Past<br />

Join prizewinning author Jean Fullerton at Wanstead Library this month<br />

as she discusses her latest novel A Ration Book Childhood, which<br />

explores a dangerous secret, set in the darkest days of the Blitz<br />

Hello everyone, and for those of you<br />

who don’t know me or my books, I’m<br />

Jean Fullerton, an award-winning,<br />

bestselling author of 15 historical novels.<br />

I’m also a native East Ender, born and bred<br />

in Stepney where my family have lived since<br />

the 1830s. Unsurprisingly, all my novels are<br />

set in the overcrowded and boisterous streets<br />

around the London Docks. I believe my<br />

background gives me a unique home-grown<br />

perspective into the history and culture of the<br />

old riverside communities.<br />

I first fell in love with history at school when I<br />

read Anya Seton’s book Katherine. Since then<br />

I have read everything I can about English<br />

history but I am particularly fascinated by<br />

the 18th and 19th centuries and my books are<br />

set in this period. I just love my native city,<br />

and the East End in particular, which is why<br />

I write stories to bring that vibrant area of<br />

London alive.<br />

My first series introducing the Nolan family<br />

spanned the 1830s and 1840s, after which I<br />

jumped forward to the lean, post-war years<br />

of the late 1940s for my east London district<br />

nurse series featuring nurses Millie and<br />

Connie.<br />

My current Ration Book series follows the<br />

Brogan family as they battle Hitler and each<br />

other during the dark days of World War Two.<br />

The first three books in the series, A Pocketful<br />

of Dreams, A Ration Book Christmas and A<br />

Ration Book Childhood are already released,<br />

and A Ration Book Wedding will follow in May<br />

2020. I’m currently working on A Ration Book<br />

Daughter scheduled for release in May 2021.<br />

But writing a book is only one side of the coin;<br />

having someone read and enjoy it is the other.<br />

When I’m not worrying over the plot and<br />

creating characters you fall in love with, hold<br />

your breath for and shed a tear over, I love<br />

getting out and about meeting readers.<br />

I do this in a variety of places by giving talks<br />

on my life, historical talks based on the<br />

research I’ve undertaken for my novels in<br />

libraries, Women’s Institutes, U3As and other<br />

organisations, and even on cruise ships. Yes, I<br />

know it’s a hard job, but someone has to do it!<br />

Readers are everything. Without them, my<br />

stories are just paper and ink. As I already said,<br />

I love meeting readers and explaining how<br />

I craft the ideas rattling around in my head<br />

into a cracking 400-page novel. With that in<br />

mind, I look forward to meeting all you lovely<br />

Wanstead readers this month.<br />

Jean’s talk will take place at Wanstead<br />

Library on 24 <strong>October</strong> from 6.30pm to<br />

7.45pm (free; booking required). Visit<br />

Author Talk<br />

Join prize-winning author Jean Fullerton,<br />

who will discuss her latest book, ‘A Ration<br />

Book Childhood’, a story that explores<br />

a dangerous secret, set in the darkest<br />

days of the Blitz. Jean was born into a<br />

large, East End family and grew up in the<br />

overcrowded streets clustered around the<br />

Tower of London. She still lives in East<br />

London, just five miles from where she was<br />

born. In 26 she won the Harry Bowling<br />

Prize for her novel ‘No Cure For Love’.<br />

Thursday 7 February<br />

Good As You: from pride to prejudice 30 years of gay Brita<br />

Good As You is an important book that celebrates the seismic shift that turned gay<br />

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

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

integral to his own personal<br />

journey and to so many<br />

young gay men who found<br />

their voices were finally<br />

being heard in the 1980s.<br />

This is the story of public<br />

outrage and personal loss,<br />

the (not always legal) highs<br />

and the desperate lows, and<br />

the final collective victory<br />

This picture may be nothing special to<br />

most photographers, but to me it was<br />

a milestone breakthrough, realising<br />

I had recognised the possibility of getting<br />

this shot.<br />

I have been a regular member of Woodford<br />

and Wanstead Photographic Society for just<br />

under three years but still consider myself<br />

a novice when I compare myself to other<br />

members I admire. Some people just have the<br />

knack of finding the right angle to make an<br />

average image great. I often wonder how they<br />

see what I don’t and whether you can teach<br />

someone creativity or if it’s something you just<br />

have or you don’t.<br />

I must say, since joining Woodford and<br />

Wanstead Photographic Society, I have started<br />

to continually look at my surroundings to see<br />

if there is a potential photograph within my<br />

sights. I now look skyward as much as down<br />

and left or right.<br />

Leaving my office in Fitzrovia at 4.30pm daily,<br />

and walking the same route to Tottenham<br />

Court Road Tube station, I noticed this facade<br />

in Percy Street showing a reflection of a few<br />

clouds with the staircase visible through the<br />

glazing. I immediately realised that with the<br />

right weather conditions the staircase would<br />

look like it was passing through the clouds.<br />

Camera in hand every afternoon I left work,<br />

my journey down Percy Street was finally<br />

rewarded with ideal conditions – a very bright<br />

sunny afternoon with plenty of fluffy clouds<br />

in the sky. This gave a great reflection with the<br />

staircase clearly visible.<br />

A bit of teasing with the Detail Extractor Filter<br />

from the Nik Collection bolt-on to Photoshop<br />

gave me an image that achieved first place in<br />

a club competition. A pleasing result, but not<br />

as pleasurable as knowing I had imagined the<br />

picture before I had actually seen it.<br />

Old enOUgh tO…<br />

In the third of a series of articles looking at the work of Age UK<br />

Redbridge, Barking & Havering, Janet West explains the importance of<br />

Older People’s Week and looks at what will be happening in Wanstead<br />

The United Nations General Assembly<br />

passed a resolution on 14 December<br />

1990 declaring 1 <strong>October</strong> as an<br />

International Day of Older People. The<br />

day is to acknowledge and appreciate<br />

the enormous contributions and<br />

achievements that older people make<br />

to the functioning of society and the<br />

economy.<br />

According to the United Nations, almost<br />

700 million people are now over the age of<br />

60. By 2050, two billion people, over 20% of<br />

the world’s population, will be 60 or older. The<br />

increase in the number of older people will be<br />

the greatest and most rapid in the developing<br />

world, with Asia as the region with the largest<br />

number of older persons, and Africa facing the<br />

largest proportionate growth.<br />

Each year, the International Day of Older<br />

People has a different theme. Last year’s<br />

theme was ‘Celebrating Older Human Rights<br />

Champions’ and for <strong>2019</strong> the theme will be<br />

‘The Journey to Age Equality’.<br />

Age UK Redbridge, Barking & Havering have<br />

been working alongside Redbridge Council<br />

and other local organisations for many years,<br />

arranging events to celebrate Older People’s<br />

Day. In fact, in Redbridge, there is usually a<br />

whole week of celebration and this year is no<br />

exception!<br />

There are events planned throughout the<br />

week, ranging from information sessions<br />

about keeping safe at home, to health and<br />

wellbeing, leisure and culture, and there<br />

will also be opportunities to try out new<br />

exercises in classes around the borough for<br />

free, and a celebratory lunch with the Mayor<br />

of Redbridge at the Allan Burgess Centre on<br />

2 <strong>October</strong>.<br />

In fact, Wanstead’s Allan Burgess Centre has an<br />

event each day during the week commencing<br />

30 September. There will be a performance<br />

from Redbridge Music Lounge, the Redbridge<br />

Rhymesters will be having a poetry session<br />

with the children from Snaresbrook Primary<br />

School, a general knowledge quiz will take<br />

place and a comedy performance will keep<br />

everyone entertained, all in addition to the<br />

Mayor’s celebratory lunch.<br />

Programmes are available from the centre and<br />

from local libraries, as well as from Age UK in<br />

Ilford. We hope to see lots of people enjoying<br />

events throughout the week. Do pop in to the<br />

Allan Burgess Centre and join us and enjoy<br />

one of the events as well as a home-cooked<br />

meal, which will include a free glass of wine on<br />

the day of the celebratory lunch.<br />

Georgian survivor<br />

At this month’s meeting of the Wanstead Historical Society,<br />

Lynn Haseldine Jones will be discussing Snaresbrook House, a grade IIlisted<br />

Georgian mansion overlooking Eagle Pond<br />

Snaresbrook House is one of the littleknown<br />

gems of Wanstead, a Georgian<br />

mansion that has survived into the<br />

21st century. When I moved into the Lodge<br />

at Snaresbrook House six years ago, I set<br />

about researching the history of the house,<br />

which has been a fascinating exercise (and<br />

one which still continues).<br />

Local people may remember that Snaresbrook<br />

House was empty for a number of years<br />

before being turned into a development<br />

of apartments. Many may also remember<br />

that the building was occupied by the local<br />

council from just after the war until the 1980s,<br />

variously being the borough treasurer’s<br />

department and the architects’ department.<br />

Before the Second World War, Snaresbrook<br />

House was a large and no doubt luxurious<br />

private house with grand gardens and a fine<br />

view over Eagle Pond, and home over the<br />

years to a range of interesting people. The<br />

last family to occupy it as a home were the<br />

Lustys, John Lusty having made his fortune<br />

in that well-known delicacy of the Victorian<br />

period, turtle soup, which often featured on<br />

the menu of the Lord Mayor’s banquets. Other<br />

members of the family were involved in the<br />

manufacture of Lloyd Loom furniture.<br />

Before the Lustys, the house was the private<br />

residence of diamond mine owner David<br />

Symons, whose initials can be seen to this<br />

day on the fine ornate metal gates to the<br />

development, along with the date 1900. David<br />

and his wife Beatrice Maud had three children,<br />

and employed several servants to look after<br />

the house and garden, and to occupy the<br />

Lodge. Beatrice came from a theatrical family,<br />

and the lawns of Snaresbrook House were<br />

sometimes used for operatic and theatrical<br />

performances.<br />

Earlier occupants include the Fowler family,<br />

in whose time the house was known as Eagle<br />

House. There were eagles on the gateposts,<br />

but the originals have disappeared. The<br />

present eagles are new replacements.<br />

Samuel Ellis, who lived there in the 1870s,<br />

was a merchant whose business specialised<br />

in the supply of ivory and ostrich feathers.<br />

He gave to the people of Wanstead the<br />

drinking fountain, which still stands close to<br />

Snaresbrook station.<br />

Other occupants included a wine merchant<br />

and a soap manufacturer. At the time of the<br />

demolition of Wanstead House in 1823, the<br />

man living at Snaresbrook House was James<br />

Scratton, who treated it as a country retreat.<br />

I am continuing my research to discover<br />

more about the occupants of this fine house,<br />

particularly in the 18th century. It is intriguing<br />

to think the house may be even older, with<br />

origins as a farmhouse in perhaps the late 17th<br />

century. The house still has many secrets to be<br />

discovered.<br />

Lynn’s talk will take place at Wanstead<br />

Library on 7 <strong>October</strong> from 8pm (visitors:<br />

£3). Call 07949 026 212<br />

MIND<br />

THE GAP!<br />

We asked DR AMJAD MALIK to<br />

explain why dental implants offer<br />

the best solution for missing teeth<br />

Who can benefit from having implants?<br />

– Almost anyone with one or more teeth missing.<br />

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

What difference do implants make?<br />

– Implants can noticeably improve a person’s<br />

confidence and self-esteem, but there are further<br />

benefits. Take my father. Before he had implants,<br />

he would choose only soft foods that were easier<br />

to eat with his dentures, rather than what he<br />

liked. After the implants he was able to eat anything,<br />

and was happier to dine out. Not only<br />

could he chew his food properly which<br />

improved his general well-being; he also looked<br />

better and younger.<br />

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

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

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

integral to his own personal<br />

journey and to so many<br />

young gay men who found<br />

their voices were fina ly<br />

being heard in the 1980s.<br />

This is the story of public<br />

outrage and persona loss,<br />

the (not always legal) highs<br />

and the desperate lows, and<br />

the final co lective victory<br />

as gay people were fina ly<br />

recognised, as Good As You.<br />

Why are implants better than other solutions?<br />

– Because they are fixed into your jaw, just as<br />

natural teeth are. Alternative solutions are<br />

removable dentures, which can be embarrassing,<br />

and unromantic, or bridges, for which good<br />

teeth either side of the gap have to be damaged.<br />

Play Reading Group<br />

Have you ever wanted to act but not had the time to<br />

a variety of characters and there’s no need to prepare in<br />

advance. The play for this session wi l have LGBT+ themes.<br />

How long do implants last?<br />

– There is no limit but like natural teeth, they<br />

need maintenance and servicing. The mouth is a<br />

dynamic machine: teeth and implants undergo<br />

strong mechanical forces, so regular checkups and<br />

hygiene visits are a must, as with natural teeth.<br />

Wanstead needs you!<br />

The Wanstead Society is a group of volunteers dedicated to protecting and enhancing one of the most<br />

picturesque parts of London. We champion the conservation of our area’s heritage, and work to promote<br />

Wanstead and neighbouring Snaresbrook wherever possible.<br />

The Wanstead Society is a non-political organisation seeking to help our area by building constructive<br />

working relationships with those in power.<br />

Our main aims are to:<br />

• Work with the Council and planners to protect and enhance the character of Wanstead<br />

Wanstead is a lovely<br />

neighbourhood –<br />

• Encourage, support and promote the viability of the High Street and the<br />

local community<br />

• Take part in the Wanstead Festival and care for the Corner House Garden<br />

• Liaise with and lobby Councillors, GLA Members and MPs<br />

• Support local businesses<br />

but it’s constantly<br />

Whilst we have no statutory power, we have a voice. And the more members we<br />

have, the louder that voice will be. That’s why we need you to join us.<br />

under threat from<br />

poor planning and<br />

The Wanstead Society<br />

government cutbacks. Help us<br />

speak up for Wanstead.<br />

We currently have over 600 households in our membership –<br />

why not add your name to the list?<br />
