Local people helping local people in Leytonstone!

Dear Customers

Our senior citizens Christmas dinner is next Monday (17th) We're closing the pub for a few hours to make it extra special, sorry if you had lunch plans. We will be open from 4pm.

If anyone would like to donate anything please get in touch or pop in (cash, gifts, food, booze).

Also if you know anyone that might like to come along please call (020 8988 2929) or email names to [email protected]

We're going to treat our local elders to a slap up 3 course Christmas dinner and have a good old fashioned knees up!

Why? because too many elderly people spend Christmas alone and we don't like that!

Merry Christmas

From The Red Lion

Leytonstone Museum has been rather quiet recently as I've had a bit of a break and hopefully people are working on some stuff for the new 'inside Leytonstone' page of the blog. Remember this is a museum for everyone, not just artists or historians, so anyone can send in any photos, stories or ideas. I hope to have time to do some more promotion too and will be looking for ways to create revenue to create physical work for pop-up exhibitions to complement the online blog. Also remember the box museum is still available for pop ups and handling sessions!
