Wanstead residents invited to community picnic (and to help clear up)

Picnic goers are required to bring their own food and picnic blankets to the event

A spring clean-themed community picnic will take place on Christchurch Green on 11 April from 2pm to 4pm. The council-organised event will feature local stall-holders and a number of activities for both children and adults, including a live story-telling session at 2.15pm, a free yoga workshop at 3pm and origami, seed bomb making and other craft activities throughout the afternoon. And being part of Keep Britain Tidy’s Great British Spring Clean campaign, attendees will also be invited to join or host a litter pick on the day. Children and community groups taking part will be presented with a certificate (register before 2.30pm). “The event is our way of celebrating local volunteers’ clean-up efforts,” said Krisztina Vamos, Neighbourhood Engagement and Education Officer at Redbridge Council.
