The popular Wanstead Fringe Jumble trail is back! The original, biggest and best local trail returns on Saturday 11 September bringing Jumble Trail fans to Wanstead from all over East London.
The Jumble Trail offers a brilliant opportunity to clear out your wardrobe and free up some space in the toy cupboard – assuming you dare to open it! It also provides a great excuse to get out there and meet the neighbours, steal ideas for your garden, and just have a general wander around the area. Who knows who you might meet – or what you might find? And this year, the Trail aims to be more eco-friendly than ever, reflecting society’s growing sense of environmental awareness.
The Jumble Trail encourages everyone to reuse household items and keep them in use for longer. This year, however, it will also introduce new opportunities to repair and recycle too. An expert team of seamstresses will be offering a clothing drop off service to treat split seams, care for wonky buttons and reinvigorate worn elbow patches – if you’re sure you really want to wear elbow patches.
If you want a break from shopping then visit the Plant Clinic hosted by Wanstead Community Gardeners. They will answer any questions you have about your indoor or outdoor plants and also hold a succulent planting workshop for under 10’s. Simply turn up with a household item to be recycled into a plant pot and a gorgeous succulent that’s theirs to take home and nurture.
There will be a Central Hub behind the Corner House on Wanstead High Street, where you’ll also be able to pick up a Jumble Trail Map and visit several stalls – from here we are encouraging visitors to head off on foot or bike and use our map to visit gardens and drives full of goodies across Wanstead.
There is a £5 charge for taking part in the trail – proceeds will to to Wanstead primary school PTAs.
