  1. Great site you have here but I was curious about if you
    knew of any discussion boards that cover the same
    topics discussed here? I’d really love to be a part of community where
    I can get suggestions from other experienced individuals that
    share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.

    • Hi
      I’m not sure if you mean specifically in Hackney and whether it’ll cover all these topics; Yeah Hackney – – was a community forum (sadly closed this year) but they still run their Twitter account.

      There’s a lot of community activity across Clapton and the rest of Hackney and some of the groups have probably got discussion forums.
