For the second year running the Friends of Wanstead Parklands had a stall at the Volunteering Fair, organised by Volunteer Centre Redbridge, and held at Redbridge Town Hall on Thursday 7 November.
A large number of local voluntary organisations were represented, offering an excellent networking opportunity as well as an opportunity to meet potential volunteers and promote our work. The Mayor of Redbridge, Cllr Felicity Banks, generously supported and attended the event.
The Friends are hoping as a result of contacts they made to set up additional practical work days in the park, and to organise a guided walk for a church ladies group.
We presented the Mayor with one of our fantastic 2014 calendars.
