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.

Caz has lived in the area for 7 years with her partner and children and recently won a Pride of Waltham Forest Award for her community service. 

There are so many small things we can do as a community to improve things and help each other

“Cann Hall is a family-oriented, community-minded place. I found that out setting up a community and volunteer business. We’ve got a massive mix of wonderful cultures – families that have been here for generations, new people moving in… and it’s still cohesive and blending well. 

There’s a neighbourly attitude I really appreciate. We look after each other – during COVID especially, you never really felt isolated. Even now – people say hi to each other when walking their dogs, things like that – it’s a different vibe than I’ve seen in other places. 

Things like my business brings people together. We’re all born the same, so why don’t we just look after each other throughout our journey of life? There are so many small things we can do as a community to improve things and help each other.”
