Local resident Giles Wilson – who runs the Wansteadium blog and organises the annual Wanstead Fringe – has launched the Wanstead Social Distance Club, offering a series of online talks.

“The inaugural meeting took place last month when author John Rogers spoke about some of the fascinating things he’s learned while walking around our bit of east London,” said Giles. Local crime writer Anya Lipska has also taken part in the club, which broadcasts its presentations using video conferencing app Zoom.
