Our neighbourhoods: Meet Boyana

We spoke to local residents to find out why they love their local neighbourhood, what makes them proud to live here and what they’d like to be improved.

Boyana lives in Leyton with her husband and son. 

We need to invest in our little ones

“We recently moved from Leytonstone to Leyton as we purchased our first home. Right now I’m spending my time preparing for my new baby and spending more time with my son, and I’m really enjoying the environment. 

I really like spending more time with my son in Coronation Gardens. It’s a very nice place to rest, especially with kids. A lot of other improvements can be done in the area, especially for crime and anti-social behaviour, but apart from that, it’s great. 

A good neighbourhood needs to have places and playgrounds for the kids, and events for all ages. My neighbourhood is great but I’d appreciate there being more. We need to invest in our little ones and make sure they’re engaged and grow up well.”
