Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mr.frankkwabena@yahoo.com.hk ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Mr Frank.

Welcome Doris!

If you join the Hackbridge Network facebook page you will find some correspondence about Hackbridge House.

Corbet Close is on the site now - due to be redeveloped next year, with houses replacing the flats.

Also keep an eye on our timeline, we add new info from time to time.
