What  do you do with old, unwanted water tanks that you have salvaged from skips? Wanstead guerrilla gardner Marion Temple had a fabulous idea, you fill them with plants, paint them up and hey presto it's going to be another wonderful displays of lovely flowers next year. You can see them at the junction of Harrier Avenue and Mansfield Road just by Wanstead Station.....

I came across this wonderful couple as I left the Gallery late this afternoon, I just had to stop and ask if I could take their picture. As you may know there had been a 'Patrons picnic lunch earlier in the day in The Mall in front of Buckingham Palace with 10,000 people attending. This couple were just returning when I spotted them, they are Dennis and Edna Stinchcombe, both MBE's by the way, from Bristol but   enjoying the delights of Wanstead for a few days. They are members of The Royal Society of St George, the Patron being Her Majesty the Queen as you can see by the flags and hampers they had a wonderful time despite the rain...
