All Change at ‘E10’

About a year and a half ago, I wrote a feature about a brilliant local directory entitled ‘E10’, which helped promote business and community life in the Leyton area.

You can re-read that post HERE.

This post is just a quick note to let people know that E10 now has a new Editor, Yasmin Allen, and a new name, ‘Leyton Life’.

However, despite all the changes, Yasmin’s as keen as ever to receive your adverts, news, views and feedback.

You can contact Yasmin and read the new-look directory by visiting: www.leytonlife.co.uk

All best wishes for the future to former editor Clare McCaughren and her family and best of luck Yasmin!

Job Opportunity with Masquerade 2000!

Some young revellers

Masquerade 2000, a top class costume and steel band that participates in the annual Notting Hill carnival, is looking for a person to help them stitch costumes for this year’s carnival.

Masquerade 2000 is a charity but they can pay the right person £7 an hour for a 30 hour week. The group is based in Leyton.

I think this year’s Notting Hill carnival is going to be superb and Masquerade 2000 will – yet again – be right at the heart of the action!

If you know how to sew, love Notting Hill carnival and steel pan music, please contact me so I can put you in touch with Masquerade 2000!
