Reece's 83 000 match canoe!!!

Just about everyone who knows Reece will know that he recently had a bit of time on his hands. Did he just sit & watch day-time telly?!


He only went & built a canoe out of 83 000 matches!!

And it is completely watertight! This afternoon he paddled all the way from Omega Works - to Walthamstow Marshes & back!!! He didn't have to get out once!

Reece - absolutely good on you mate! Not only did you use your time very productively - but you made an absolute beaut of a boat!

Please look out for Reece on the Lea & Regents Canals this summer - and when you see him - please give him all the compliments he deserves! He does so much for our community - and now he's not wasted a second of his time by creating an practical work of art!

Hackney Wick Sunflower Avenue!!!!

Please make this summer the best one Hackney Wick has ever had - by planting Sunflowers all the way through it!!!

There is going to be a stunning avenue of sunflowers starting at the Hackney Wick Community Centre - in The Eastway - running along Osborne Road, coming down Berkshire Road, turning into Wallis Road - and over the footbridge into Viccie Park!!

A veritable River of Yellow flowing right through Hackney Wick!!

You can make it look even more amazing by planting as many sunflower seeds as you can all along this route - and even in side streets to the route!!

Pop down to Lidl, B&Q or even any pound shop - pick up a few packets of seeds - and get planting!! By the height of summer - these flowers will unite the whole of Hackney Wick in smiling, happy, yellow sunflowers!!

Come on Hackney Wick - let's show ourselves off this year!!
