The exhibition is up until 28 January, so if you’re passing through Leytonstone do take a look. Slate is underneath the library in the window of the old Waltham Forest Direct shop, and next to Stone Space gallery.


Slate’s first exhibition

Ferndale Area Residents’ Association hold a photo competition every year and always exhibit the entries later in the year. So they were our first exhibition – showing over 50 entries in 4 categories (Green, Active, Old & New, Junior) about life in Leytonstone.

Here’s the show:
