The problem is that if you go to see them in a car then you can’t go down Oxford Street and it all gets very, very busy and the driver is too busy concentrating on the traffic fully to appreciate the spectacle. Continue reading

Excursion Club Feedback Request

In order to provide valuable feedback to our funders and supporters and in order to build a base of evidence which will substantiate the value of the excursions that we run (both in Newham and Waltham Forest) we are asking those who have taken part to provide a little feedback.

We don’t ask for any information that will identify any individual but we do ask basic questions about age group and so forth and about how you enjoyed the excursion. The form will only take one minute to complete online.

In addition, if you took any photos on your phone or digital camera that we can put together in a gallery then please email them to us.

Many thanks for your continued support.
