  1. Would it be possible to have permission to use the photo of the Table on the Marsh on to advertise a Midsummer Picnic to be held there on Fri 21st June 2013. The picnic is an action to reclaim safe public space for women and girls and is organised by Waltham Forest Rising, a grass roots organisation to combat violence against women and girls in our borough. I am also emailing Alexandra Parry about this.

  2. Hi there

    I’m an Assistant Producer at Plum Pictures, an award-winning independent television production company based in London. We specialize in presenter-lead factual television and currently produce a popular prime-time programme called George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces for Channel 4. The show looks at micro-architecture and the people who are following their dreams to build it. Each episode covers a vast and varied amount of spaces from tiny campervans, shipping container dwellings to high-tech multifunctional pads.

    I’m looking to find someone who has created a home or useable space from recycled materials and wondered if you would be able to help at all?

    Many thanks
