| || Marshroots celebration: 21st October 2012|
'Save Leyton Marsh' group is celebrating the return of Porter's Field on Leyton Marsh to local people on 21 October and would love it if you, your friends and the members of the groups you represent would join them. Alongside the fun and frolics they would like to use this opportunity to kick start an informal conversation about how the groups can work together to ensure the marshes of the Lea Valley are protected and supported for the long-term future.
