A group which works to protect a historic is to hold its annual general meeting tomorrow.

Friends of Wanstead Parklands (FOWP) will hold the event at Wanstead Golf Club, in Overton Drive, Wanstead, at 7.30pm and will be launching a new book called Wanstead and its Park, by committee member Richard Arnopp.

The meeting will also host guest speaker, Geoff Wilkinson, of Eightyfour Gallery, in Nightingale Lane, who will be speaking about photography in the park.

The group seeks to raise awareness of the history and ecology of Wanstead Park and campaigns for its preservation and improvement.
