Vanbrugh Park Estate summer party

The VPE committee are excited to see you again for an afternoon of games, face-painting, music and conversation. For kids and adults of all ages.

We’ll have live music from VPE’s The Kimberleys, plus we’ll bring out the barbecue, and provide food and soft drinks for all.

Thank a neighbour

There are often many big and small acts of kindness carried out on the estate. We’d like to recognise what a caring community we have and say ‘thank you’ to those involved.

If you’d like to thank a neighbour, let us know and we’ll post their good deeds on the VPE website.

Please confirm that you have their permission to include their name or if they wish to remain anonymous.

Email your messages to or drop a note to 17 Combe Avenue.

Contributions are welcome now and we’ll read out some of your messages at a future event.

Thanks to Rob from Westcombe Court for sharing this video of the estate in its early days. German guests are taken on a local tour as a part of the London Borough of Greenwich’s Civic Week in 1966. The estate is featured from 2:40 to 3:36.
