Festive event on 7 December in Wood Street

SnowflakePlans are afoot to hold a festive event in the Wood Street Plaza on the afternoon of 7 December. The programme is still being developed, and we will give more details here when they are available. But it is likely to include music, refreshments, stalls and quite possibly a guest appearance from a large bloke in a red and white outfit.

Saturday 7 December, 2 – 7 pm (timings provisional)
Wood Street Plaza

The event is part of an initiative called ‘Supporting Small Businesses Saturday’ being taken forward by Waltham Forest Council, and follows on from this summer’s Love Your High Street events (one of which was held here in Wood Street). It is being organised by the same committee that pulled together that event. (Yes, that includes Graham Hodgkiss, who is not letting a small thing like having a serious accident and being assigned months of bed rest stop him from getting involved – and we are sure people will want to wish Graham a speedy recovery.)
