Representatives from the Olympic Park Legacy Company, the London Organising Committee for the Olympic Games, the Olympic Delivery Authority and Hackney Council will be on hand to answer questions.

Guy Nicholson, Hackney Council Cabinet Member for Regeneration and the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, said: “The 2012 Games are fast approaching and now is the time for residents to find out about new opportunities for them to become involved with volunteering, training courses, jobs, sports and more. I would encourage as many people as possible to drop in to our community meeting”
