London's New Housing Solution?

, a new scheme, funded privately by Singaporean investors is “a new way to live in London”, is the corporate answer to the issues facing new workers or students in the capital hunting for a flat and someone to share the costs.

If the polo and car race does not win you over, we would hope that the Champagne and Oyster bar will. Taittinger are one of the other sponsors, there will be a bar and plenty of bubbles to fuel the day! The event is being held in memory of Roy Langman, tickets will be £5- bought on the door and all of the money will go to..
