We all had an absolutely tremendous time at our very first Friends of Whitehall Park School Summer Fete. On behalf of everyone who attended, we would like to extend our sincere gratitude to everyone who worked so hard, behind the scenes for many weeks and months and to everyone who helped out on the day itself. You are all truly incredible and we are so grateful. Please see some of the comments below:-

“A fantastic community event! Loads of fun for the whole family. Well done to all the organisers.” Revd. Steve, St. Andrew’s Church, Whitehall Park.

“So much achieved by so few! Don’t normally feel emotional about estate agents but I have developed a strange affection for Anscombe and Ringland and their amazingly kind and helpful team.

“Lovely atmosphere, family orientated. Lots of things to do. Great music. A superb event!” Olivia’s grandma
