We are almost ready to confirm the dates for five new haystack events this spring and summer. The one date that is set is for the 2019 Community Haystack on the Walthamstow Marshes, to take place on Saturday 20 July.



Haystacks are a series of talks and meetings about rural links, places and practices. They started in May 2013 and have no fixed location.
