Festive Fayre

Wood Street First – Festive Fayre 10th December


Wood Street First are also holding a Christmas Party on Saturday 17th December. Please see details at Christmas Party 2016


Plaza redevelopment team to set out their wares at Christmas Fayre

The team taking forward the Marlowe Road and Wood Street Plaza redevelopment will be at this Saturday’s Christmas Fayre to share their latest plans for the estate and the Plaza, and to hear your concerns and views.

Developers Countryside and Stitch Architects were recently appointed to take forward the project. As well as the phased demolition and rebuilding of the Marlowe Road estate, it will also lead to new buildings nearby and a new footprint, layout and design for the Plaza and the space around Northwood Tower. Following an approach from Wood Street First, supported by the local Business Forum, representatives from the development team and the Council and Ascham Homes will be staffing a stall at the event.Plaza aerial sketch

Last Saturday’s festive event: thoughts and photos

Some highlights – and some visual memories – from last Saturday’s event on the Wood Street Plaza, which was part of the first national Small Business Saturday.

Hundreds of people of all ages and cultures – perhaps over a thousand in total – came along to enjoy the stalls, entertainment and free food and drink. Many called in from Wood Street and around, but some had come from as far afield as Broxbourne and Loughton. Apparently our event was the most popular of the eight running across the borough. Santa was so busy he had to call for some extra presents!

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.

So put a note in your diary now:

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.)
