If you’re a business, charity or other individual or organisation supporting business and employment growth in the Leytonstone area, you can join this LinkedIn group which I set up (October 2012) as an online networking forum. Applications need approval to stop spammers. If you have any problem joining through LinkedIn please contact me.
