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 hello@vanbrughparkestate.com 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.
