Buxhall Bee launches at Hackney Wick festival

Thanks to everyone who came over to the stall on 26th September, it was nice to meet you all! Please remember to pass on the info about the project and get in touch with ideas for the newspaper.

Will be in touch again soon...

Buxhall Bee blog

Welcome to the Buxhall Bee* blog, which will be updated with info about Lucy Harrison's project at Buxhall Crescent, E9.

If you'd like to be on the mailing list email Lucy on

*Bee (noun): a community social gathering in order to perform some task, engage in a contest, etc.

Some things that will be happening, with your input:

The Buxhall Bee newspaper will be designed and produced by Lucy Harrison during the next few months. It will include features and information about Buxhall residents’ hobbies, interests and skills, plus anything else you’d like to share with other people. It can’t happen without you!

Lucy will be collecting your favourite tracks to put together a Buxhall Playlist for the end of the project.

What’s your favourite recipe? Doesn’t matter how simple or difficult to make, send it in to be included in a special recipe edition of the Buxhall Bee newsletter.

Guided walks & Nature Trails
A series of guided walks and nature trails are being planned, get in touch to get updates

What’s your hobby?
Do you have an interesting hobby? Are you ace at knitting or great at singing? Whatever it is, get in touch to include it in the newspaper.

Communal Lunch
Towards the end of the project there will be a communal lunch where residents will be invited to share food and drink and get to know neighbours.

For information about any of the above- or if you'd like to suggest ideas- please email
