Waltham Forest athletes scooped the Most Improved Borough award at the 2019 London Youth Games.
Cllr Ahsan Khan, Cabinet Member for Community Safety and Voluntary Sector, has made the following statement following the shooting in Leyton on Sunday morning:
“It is with heavy hearts that we see another person has lost their life in a senseless shooting incident in Leyton this weekend. Another family and friendship group has been devastated by this needless violence – this cannot go on. Our thoughts are with them at this difficult time.
In the current hot spell, please help our young trees establish by watering them.
Waltham Forest tree service waters the newly planted trees - but any extra help we can give them is always welcome.
Each tree is planned to be watered every two weeks between May and September inclusive and more if it’s needed, but the current weather conditions are hard on young trees and extra help to establish them is a good way to get involved in making our borough even greener.
