Walthamstow is full of passionate people with strong views. OK some loathe the place but most people love it.

I would hate to live somewhere where people feel nothing much about where they live, and could easily swap it for somewhere else tomorrow.

Walthamstow is definitely not beige.

Many people I have met describe it as the friendliest place they’ve lived in London, and this for a place where the vast majority of its residents come from elsewhere. It is a place with its roots still firmly in east London soil, whose born and bred are known for their warmth and humour.

It is a place well worth getting to know. The E List is about spreading the word not only of what is happening in Walthamstow right now, but also tales of what has gone before and what people dream of next.
