What a week in Waltham Forest

News

It’s been quite a week in Waltham Forest.

Hollow Pond boats March 2012The sun came out hitting temperatures that felt like summer, not March, and there’s no better image of summer in Leytonstone than seeing people rowing on Hollow Pond.

‘Hollow Pond’ is also one of the most popular searches on this site, so for anyone thinking of taking out a boat, it’s good news that the boats are back every afternoon, though they do sometimes close in bad weather.

The Queen's visit to Waltham Forest 29 March 2012The good weather held, too, for the Queen’s visit to Walthamstow Town Hall yesterday, where she and the Duke of Edinburgh attended a lunch for community leaders and was entertained by bands and choirs from local school pupils. Students from Waltham Forest College helped with the preparation and serving of the lunch.

Are you organising a community event in Leytonstone for the Diamond Jubilee? You’re welcome to advertise it, or post photos after the event on this site. See the new Queen’s Jubilee page for more details.
