Walking tours and a celebration event!
Over the course of two weekends in November, during Newham Heritage Festival, Fiona and I, together with local residents, delivered a series of Walking Tours, all well attended and booked at capacity. Local residents came along to discover the hidden heritage of their area and share memories about former corner shops, schools etc.
The end of project Celebration Event was held at St John’s Church in Stratford Broadway, on 30th November. Everyone involved in the project came along to enjoy the launch of Discovering Stratford Village’s video, and share a merry time with fellow volunteers and project participants. We ran a quiz about Stratford Village. The printed map was a very useful tool to find some of the answers… but not all of them, of course!
