A WALTHAMSTOW park is to get its very own speakers’ corner. Stoneydown Speakers’ Corner Committee last week chose a design after four presentations from students at the Central St Martin’s College of Art & Design. The chosen design will now be turned into reality and will be ready later this year. The winning design - Stepping Stones by Hayley Clack, Stephanie Romig and Yoo Kyeong - consists of not only a Speakers’ Corner, but also seating and tables, some of which feature board games such as chess. The design also acknowledges the work of William Morris, who lived much of his life nearby on Forest Road. A copy of the designs can be found on the Designing Speakers’ Corner page. Chair of the Stoneydown Speakers’ Corner Committee, James O’Rourke, was impressed with the proposals. He said: “We were really impressed by the thoughtfulness and imagination of all the schemes we saw and it’s so exciting that our park and our community are going to benefit from the talent of some of the best of a new generation of designers.” For more information, visit www.speakerscornertrust.org PROJECT: Designers Hayley Clack and Yoo Kyeong with chair of the Speakers’ Corner Committee, James O’Rourke.

Drug gang jailed
TWO members of a gang that tried to import more than £10million of Class A drugs in consignments of scrap metal have been jailed for more than 30 years. Neil Tindling, of Dimsdale Crescent, Bishops Stortford and Christopher Foile, of Bran End, Stebbing, received 22 and eight years respectively. They used an address in Leytonstone to have the haul sent to.
POLICE are urging witnesses to come forward after a man was found in Walthamstow with serious head injuries.

If you have any information, call 020 8345 3143.
