Below are details of all activities taking place this week which are open to newcomers. Details given include whethe you need to book or can just drop-in – and there are also contact details for organisers or links so you can find out more.

But …  you don’t have to join an activity to call in.  Everyone is welcome at The Mill whenever we are open. You can borrow a book from the honesty library, bring your little ones to enjoy all the toys in the playroom, make a cuppa and have a chat – and browse leaflets, flyers and posters on display to  find out what else is going on throughout Waltham Forest. There’s always someone on reception to welcome you and give more information.
