The Planning Department have not got the report ready for the Planning Committee regarding the Town Centre so the meeting on the 29th November has been cancelled . Instead it is provisionally booked for the 12th December but who knows!! Gives us more time to get our case against this awful plan ready!
Warmth from Walthamstow: Calais Collection
There are still thousands of refugees, including children, sleeping rough in Calais as they live in limbo whilst Governments including our own decide their obligations to them. They face little assistance and severe hostility from both the french authorities and trafficking gangs who prey on vulnerable people in the region. In response, we have organised a ‘Warmth from Walthamstow’ to take warm clothes and food to them ahead of one of the coldest winters predicted in France. We will be going to France on Saturday 9th December- ahead of this we are collecting donations of money or the following:
- Small tents, sleeping bags, camping matts, blankets inflatable pillows
- Medium sized rucksacks.
- Men’s small -medium clothes and small and medium sized shoes for the outdoor
