This weekend I attended the re-opening of the local café Upper Crust with the Nine fields estate in Waltham Abbey. Nine fields residents association have been working with and supporting locals to get out and use community spaces more and more. The Mayoress of Waltham Abbey cut the ribbon on ‘Upper Crust’ and the local press covered the event as well. I attended this opening on Saturday to support the locals and offer support and information to members of the public. The association had gifts donated used as raffle prizes to raise funds for the association. They raised £67 which will go back into the local community with other community events happening in the year!
