Exciting news: at the Wood Street Summer Fayre on the 29th August, local community artists Wood Street Walls will be holding an interactive workshop. Part of this workshop will include artists producing large portraits of local heroes to brighten up the Plaza until the development works starts.
This is your chance to nominate your chosen local hero for one of these portraits. All you need to do is go here to make your nominations.
Mr Morris, hero of Walthamstow and perhaps Wood St, as rendered by Wood St Walls.
So put your thinking cap on, submit your nomination and who knows, it could be you – or someone you know – featuring in Wood Street’s very own urban art!

Be seeing you!
Last week Martin Kearney – longstanding Wood Street resident and deputy chairman of Wood Street First – received an award for his voluntary services to the community at a ceremony in Walthamstow Town Hall. The award was presented to him by the Mayor of Waltham Forest and Diana Leary from Voluntary Action Waltham Forest.

We are sure this Saturday’s Wood Street Village Fete is already in your diaries. In an exciting addition to the line-up, the Met Police have announced that they hope to bring an Austin 1100 vintage police car to the Plaza. It will appear alongside a new police car to show the differences.
Panda lovers will be in heaven!
A panda like this could be coming to a fete near you.
The event kicks off at 12 noon and will finish around 4 pm. Don’t miss it!
