Waltham Forest’s Labour Council spent £18,000 last year on a band to open Chingford’s Big Weekender festival, but months later a well-loved well used day centre in Crownfield Road, Leyton was closed because the council stopped their funding.
Chingford, Leyton and Leytonstone’s Big Weekenders are not free. They have been paid for by Waltham Forest’s taxpayers on the back of cuts to local facilities.
Beware! The council issues a free, twice a month, propaganda paper and a free glossy magazine and puts on many freebie events costing thousands. It has funded them by closing libraries and facilities for youngsters and vulnerable people. Ask your Labour councillor, why they agree with this? That’s if you can find them!
