New Waltham Forest Echo website launched

The new year is coming, so we’ve decided to have a refresh

The new Waltham Forest Echo website

2022 was certainly a year for news in Waltham Forest and the world beyond. To get ready for the coming year which will prove noless full of news, the Waltham Forest Echo website has had a bit of a revamp and refresh.

We think the sections, page layouts, navigation and other options will give a far better reading experience for readers and make it much easier for visitors to find the news and features they’re looking for.


This story is published by Waltham Forest Echo, Waltham Forest's free monthly newspaper and free news website. We are a not-for-profit publication, published by a small social enterprise. We have no rich backers and rely on the support of our readers. Donate or become a supporter.


We’re really excited about the new look and we think you will be, too. It’s got everything the old site had, just better organised and easier to read and enjoy. We’ll be adding more sections, options and functions as the year unfolds. We’ll iron out any bugs you spot, too.

Here’s to 2023 and whatever it may bring!

Wishing all of our readers a happy new year,

The Waltham Forest Echo team.


No news is bad news 

Independent news outlets like ours – reporting for the community without rich backers – are under threat of closure, turning British towns into news deserts. 

The audiences they serve know less, understand less, and can do less. 

In celebration of Indie News Week, Public Interest News Foundation's Indie News Fund will match fund all donations, including new annual supporter subscriptions for the month of June.

If our coverage has helped you understand our community a little bit better, please consider supporting us with a monthly, yearly or one-off donation. 

Choose the news. Don’t lose the news.
