FORA members were treated to a lovely evening at The Star of India restaurant Leytonstone on Monday night. FORA members and friends enjoyed the wonderful food and warm atmosphere of this ever popular local restaurant. It was great to see local historians Mark Smith and David Boote in attendance alongside Ros Kane of News From Nowhere Club as well as two of our three ward councillors. Well done to FORA Chair Vaseem Gill for organising the evening and a big thank you to Shah from Star of India for welcoming us as host.
