New shop front improvement works are being revealed this week as scaffolding comes down from in front of buildings at Bakers Arms in Leyton.

Nine sets of high street shop fronts across the borough are being transformed and rejuvenated using a £9m budget set aside for improvements.

The Bakers Arms improvements are the largest, using £3.3m.

Yesterday the shop front improvements in Leyton High Road, carried out for the Olympics, were awarded best non-residential scheme winner at the Waltham Forest Design Awards.

The improved shop fronts were said to put heart back into high streets.
