George Lane: the greatest British high street?


The South Woodford Society has nominated George Lane in the Great British High Street awards. The annual competition – run by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government – offers a £10,000 prize for a local community project. “As we all know, South Woodford is a wonderful place to live and work, and the residents enjoy the community and village atmosphere of the area, particularly our main shopping street, George Lane. The South Woodford Society wants to encourage individual shops and new eateries to allow our high street to thrive and to enhance and protect our local spaces, which is why we have nominated George Lane,” said Louise Burgess. A shortlist will be put to a public vote in October, with the winner announced in November. Visit
