Thanks to the 10,000 residents that ordered a food waste caddy over the past two years, Hackney is now recycling more than it ever has before.

A brand new pavilion and changing rooms officially opened at Hackney Marshes on Wednesday, completing Hackney Council's multi-million pound transformation of the Marshes and Mabley Green.

From as early as 1873 Black musicians have been influencing the cultural scene in Hackney. By the 1970s the borough was leading the way in genres such as rocksteady and reggae and producing its own internationally renowned stars. A new exhibition opening at Hackney Museum next month explores this and the important history and legacy of African and Caribbean music in the borough.
