Queen’s Jubilee

The Queen's visit to Waltham Forest Town Hall 29 March 2012

The Royal Standard was flying in front of the Town Hall as the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh visited Waltham Forest yesterday (29 March 2012) as part of her Diamond Jubilee tour. Although she didn’t pop into Leytonstone on her way from Redbridge, Leytonstone schools were amongst those invited to the Town Hall to meet her.

Catering students from Waltham Forest College helped with the preparation and serving of the food and drinks.
