Happy in Walthamstow Team

We’re happy because Jon managed to get a peg board the size of small door from West London to Walthamstow on the tube, we got it to stay attached to Hornbeam’s wall without falling off, and were able to display loads of wonderfully happy contributions on it…   all in time for Thursday’s E17 Art Trail Preview.

If you want to contribute to the Happy in Walthamstow exhibition at the Hornbeam Cafe, drop a note into the cafe, add a comment to this blog, email us at happyinwalthamstow@gmail.com. or tweet to @happyinE17 .

I love cycling around …

… our nearby open spaces with the Walthamstow Family Bike Club.

Sociable, fun, and very relaxed, we spend almost as much time hanging out in cafes as we do gently pedalling.

Something that makes me happy

It’s The William Morris Gallery on Forest Road (which reopened on August 2nd!):

Greetings Walthamstonians and Happy People!

Welcome to the Happy in Walthamstow blog site.

Happy in Walthamstow is a community art project which is part of the E17 Art Trail (taking place from the 1st – 16th September, 2012) in Walthamstow, London. Organised by a bunch of happy people in this London borough, the ideas is for Walthamstow residents to tell or show the world what makes them happy in Walthamstow. This blog will feature some of those stories, as well as providing updates for people wanting to get involved in the project.

If you live in Walthamstow, and would like to share what makes you happy, there are a  number of ways you can take part! Simplest of all, why not tell us on this blog? If commenting on this post doesn’t suit, you can email us at happyinwalthamstow@gmail.com – we’ll publish any messages you’d like to share about what helps you be well in the area, as well as photos, videos or whatever form you like best. We also have a Youtube channel where we will collect videos of Walthamstow residents having fun and doing what makes them happy, at http://www.youtube.com/user/HappyinWalthamstow. Why not stop by and say hello?

We’re really excited to be finding out what matters most to the people of Walthamstow, so please spread the word and show some love!

– Jack and Simon, from The Happy in Walthamstow team.
