Suffragette Sylvia Pankhurst, nurse Edith Cavell and Forces sweetheart Dame Vera Lynn will be among the ‘legendary women of east London’ remembered at the Wanstead Historical Society’s meeting on 9 January.

“I will tell the story of women who became political pioneers or social reformers, and who joined the struggle for women’s rights,” said police officer-turned tour guide Eleanor Bloom, whose presentation will take place at Wanstead Library from 8pm (visitors: £3).
