Local heroes

I just wondered whether residents would want to have the succees stories of themselves, their children or residents they know published here on this website.

My granddaughter Madison was mentioned in the East End Life and also the East London Advertiser for the medals she won at swimming competitions. Recently Madison also won a Jack Petchey award.

Madison trains at the LACPP with Olympians and national and student medal winners and soon will go to the home swimming club of Adam Peaty and take part in a swimming camp, run by Adam Peaty’s award winning swimming coach Mel Marshall.

Are there any kids on the estate who take part in sports or have achieved remarkable personal goals? Any residents who want to share any stories?

Please let me know, will gladly publish photos and stories.

Save our parks petition

victoria-park

38 degrees currently host a petition that calls for …..”We want the government to make protecting parks a legal requirement to make sure they’re properly looked after and kept free for everyone to use………”

That has also to do with commercial festivals being organised in parks, which has a strong effect on our lives, especially as we live on the border of Victoria Park. Have a look at the petition and see if it interests you, this story was also reported by the East London Advertiser.
