If you’re a charity or voluntary organisation based in or operating mainly in Leytonstone add your details here and I’ll add a link to your website (and do feel free to link to this site from your website).
If you’re holding an event, please add to the Events page. I’m sorry, this is not a commercial site and I haven’t got resources to add commercial events, just charities and voluntary organisations.
Events accepted for the Events page will also be added to the Calendar. The Calendar includes other important dates in Leytonstone: school terms, major Council events, Olympic dates and more. Have a look at the Calendar page!
