3Thank you to everyone who helped with our very successful open day on Sunday 17
September. The event, which was part of Open House London, attracted an amazing
150 visitors to The Keep.
We had six brave householders who opened their houses on the day – a special
thanks to them. We also had other helpers who produced and put up signage,
greeted and directed people, and handed out information sheets.
The visitors came from all over the place, including from other Span developments
Cedar Chase in Taplow, South Bucks, and Park Gate, Hove. There were quite a few
design professionals and architecture students, but also local residents. We even got
a chance to see inside some of our neighbours’ houses for the first time!
Here are the comments left in our visitors’ book.
“Thanks for opening. Great to see how different all layouts are, and how friendly
“It is a privilege to see the original houses and all types of extensions in different
