"London's non-denominational Magnificent Seven burial garden, Abney Park cemetery is perhaps more renowned for the sheer amount of trees than its residents. Over 2500 trees are planted alphabetically in a perimeter around the park."

I love that there are lots of new businesses opening up along Stoke Newington High Street!

Chris Ball

Along Stoke Newington Church Street there are some lovely independent businesses, from florists, to coffee shops, to wine bars.

Shacklewell quote

Sophie Harries-Fox

The takeover of the Overground at Hackney Central has been fantastic for the local area - there's proposals for Crossrail 2 at this station too!

Singing Lessons with Melissa D'Arcy

In my lessons we will explore such things as rhythm, tone, pitch and language via a multitude of methods including clapping games, singing exercises and some basic movement. Website

The classes run for one hour and have been planned to include singing, dancing, arts and crafts, music and story telling time.
