Community Ward forums are taking place in Leytonstone next week, and with the Olympics and Diamond Jubilee coming up this could be a good time to attend one if you’ve never been before, especially if you’re thinking of organising a street party.
The meetings are open to individual residents, community groups and business representatives and are attended by local councillors. Each ward has £10,000 to spend each year on local initiatives. But this year the Council has given each ward an extra £5,000 under The Street Party Initiative. The closing date for applications for the Diamond Jubilee is 4 May 2012, so the Community Ward forums next week will be the last before this closing date.
More information about the Community Ward forums and street parties are on:
