Christmas events and shopping

Christmas decorationChristmas is coming and I’ve listed some of the events including Christmas markets I’ve heard about so far in Leytonstone over the Christmas and New Year period on a new page Christmas events 2012. If you want to know more about any of these events, please contact the relevant organiser, I don’t have details!

Fire and kitchensLocal traders would love you to shop locally this year and so I’ve included a little feature on some of the independent shops in the Leytonstone town centre area who can easily get overlooked but might just have that perfect present, card or Christmas decoration you’re looking for. See Christmas shopping 2012.

Horizon PatisserieAnd of course if you’re out shopping in Leytonstone there are plenty of cafes and restaurants that would also love to see you for a coffee, cake or meal!

New Look Leytonstone (Part 2)

Thatched House junctionThe post I published the other week with pictures of all the new work that has been taking place in the last few months achieved over 180 views in two days, by far the most popular of all the posts I’ve published so far.

Because of the all the rain we’ve had a few sites got missed when I took the photographs, so today, sun shining, I’ve been out with my camera to complete the set.

The new pictures, right down to Thatched House, are at the bottom of the New Look Leytonstone page.

A big thank you to everyone who shared the original post on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and other social media, and please do again, people clearly appreciate it.
