2019 VPE summer party
Thanks to everyone that made it along to our estate’s summer party. There was a big turnout of kids with fun games, dancing and even a fire engine.
It’s always great to catch up with our neighbours and meet new faces – we look forward to next year’s celebration!
Bin it good!
How’s your waste disposal knowledge? VPERA committee member Virginia made the Bin Challenge game — play with the kids or try it yourself.
Simply dispose of the waste in the right bin in the quickest possible time.

Keep our estate clean
We need your help to
reduce litter around the
estate and ensure our
recycling is effective.
DON’T CONTAMINATE YOUR RECYCLING
If you’re unsure whether an item can be recycled, take it to the waste bin.
DON’T LEAVE BINS OVERFLOWING
If a bin is full, take your items to another one on the estate.
DON’T LEAVE BULKY ITEMS LYING AROUND
Take bulky waste to the designated areas: outside the caretaker’s office and inside the bin store on the south-east corner of the estate.
Estate survey update
Residents request introduction of speed bumps, CCTV by the garages and marked car spaces.
VPERA conduct estate-wide survey. 77 households respond, between 70–80% are not fussed or support each change.
VPERA discuss outcomes with Greenwich council. Their response:
- Will investigate costs to introduce speed bumps.
- Cannot support CCTV due to installation and maintenance costs, and doubts of effectiveness. Make sure you take highest precautions to ensure your garage is secure.
- Will monitor parking via visits from the Tenancy Enforcement Officer as there was strong opposition by some households to marking Yorkstone.
We’ll update you on further developments online, via noticeboards and at the all-residents’ meetings.
About the estate updated with 1960s articles
We’ve updated the history section of this site with links to download two articles written about Vanbrugh Park Estate. Both were published in November 1965 – two years after building was completed – and feature many interesting photos of the estate at the time.
