  1. FAO Miranda Grell. Hello I wonder if you could help me?I am wanting to start art sessions for families at Walthamstow Toy library and Play centre ( at Comely bank). To do so I have been applying for grants. I noted that the feedback form form the ‘Our children, Our Future” event addressed a lack of arts services in our area. I am looking for comments from councilors about the need for a provision of art activities in Walthamstow. Also any comments on the Toy library and its provsion. It would strengthen my applications for grants. Have you an opininon on arts activities/ or other services for under 5’s and their siblings ( under 8 years) in Walthamstow? Or, do you know of any other councillors that may have made comment?In fact, anything that is related thta might help me. I am happy to give any further details about my project if it will help with my query.
    I would be grateful for any help application date is due!
    Thankyou in advance, Lesley Palmer

  2. Hi Lesley, I have contacted my councillor colleagues in Walthamstow and asked them to respond to you about this. Obviously I am not a Walthamstow councillor but work closely with my colleagues that are. Hopefully, one of them will get back to you asap. If not, please let me know and I will chase them for you! The work you are doing sounds great. Very best of luck with it all! Miranda
