Forest Community Marquee

The Mill, in partnership with Community Waltham Forest are proud to present The Forest Community Marquee 

Come and visit us for an exciting programme of 10 minute talks given by local organisations from around the borough. Each organisation will be talking about the work they do to create a Utopian Waltham Forest.
