A programme of art, culture and new infrastructure to reimagine the future of the UK’s biggest council housing estate


Free to Feel Good with Val Woods

Dec 2023

Playing Thursdays at 1pm and on rotation all week.

In episode 3, I visit a repair cafe, interview two of the organisers and learn how minimising waste benefits everybody. I look at peaceful nature in the season of bright frosty mornings and find out about the work of the Park Rangers. Lastly, find help with your budget as I share more money saving tips.

Includes interviews with park ranger Carol Edwards; Dilip Baishya from the B&D Waste Minimisation Team; and Michaela from East London Waste.
