We had 34 nominations for this year’s “Bloomin’ Plaistow” awards. The judging has taken place – with such an amazing collection of nominees it was a lively and challenging session for our Steering Group – and the winners will be announced at the Plaistow Summer Market Place Festival on Sat.22nd July in Plaistow Park (at around 1:45 p.m.). Here are the 31 runners-up!

Our first PSBL members’ litter-picking session was a great success – 20 bags of rubbish collected from Prince Regent Lane westwards along the Newham Way, on Saturday 24th June. Do YOU want to nominate a south Plaistow area for a future exercise? E-mail info@plaistowsouthbiglocal.org.uk .

We joined LBN and the Green Gym on a freezing day at the end of January for the launch of the Greenway Orchard Project (at the Boundary Lane junction of the Greenway) – taking along the models created by Brampton Manor School students and Library users, created to represent ideas for public art on the Greenway.

We launched our “Growing Up In Plaistow” exhibition, resulting from a year long oral history project with Eastside Community Heritage, at the re-opening of Plaistow Library on 26th October. The exhibition was at the Library until Wednesday 9th November, when it moved to Barking Road Community Centre for 10th to 30th November. It is now touring other local venues and schools for the foreseeable future.  There is a lot more content from the project available on a dedicated website Growing Up In Plaistow, and also shortly an app to locate some of the ‘stories’ around south Plaistow:
