The Wanstead Society has waived this year’s renewal fees for its members, encouraging them to spend the money in local shops.
“The COVID-19 crises has affected us all, and we know with tough times ahead, every penny counts. That’s why we will give our members a free year (worth £10 per household) if they want it. If you can spare £10, spend it in one of our lovely shops on the High Street instead. We hope this small gesture will go some way to helping them survive,” said the group’s chairman Scott Wilding.
