We are now in national lockdown and you must not leave home unless necessary. This is the most important thing we can do to protect ourselves, the NHS and save lives.  

Covid-19 cases are very high in Waltham Forest, so please follow restrictions and stay safe.   

Protect yourself and others by following the government advice wash your hands regularly, cover your face in enclosed spaces, and stay 2m apart from anyone you do not live with.
