HERE'S YOUR chance to own a piece of history...and help the Toy Appeal.
Ten years ago when the Newham Recorder changed its livery we auctioned off our old signage...and raise funds for the campaign. Now we are doing the same again...only this time you can get the complete sign that used to be outside our old office in High Street North, East Ham.
We moved to our current home at Ilford in February of this year. The only thing that needs repairing is the light inside, which suffered a slight mishap when we finally took it down a week or two ago.
You can submit a bid by post or e-mail or you can text your bid to us on ouor newstext phone 07971 685748.
Colin is pictured with the sign, with cat Eddie giving it the once over!
We will deliver the sign to the highest bidder. It has a reserve price of �100.
