It is finally the season of festivities, as many dug into their chocolate Advent Calendars on Friday 1st December, we began the count down to Christmas with our favourite festive songs. Each day we share a different song on our social media accounts; so far we have had Jingle Bells, I wish it could be Christmas everyday, White Christmas and We Wish You A Merry Christmas. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram to see what will also be chosen, as we countdown the days to Christmas!
Merry Christmas from The Team at Two Fifty One
This week we began hosting our 'Festive Show Apartment Viewings' at the marketing suite. It has been a brilliant turn out, with current owners and potential buyers popping down to gaze at London's skyline from 13th and 26th floors and then warm up over a glass of mulled wine. I think it's fair to say the festive season has begun! Interested in coming next week? Don't hesitate to give us a call to book your slot!
Last Thursday, we hosted our hugely successful Infocus Event, compromising of show apartment visits and a photographic exhibition. The event started at 4pm, with a stream of previous purchasers and potential purchasers visiting the show apartments on 13th floor, as well as our new spacious 3 bedroom show apartment on 26th floor. The views of London looked incredible, especially as the evening progressed and one could see London's skyline lit up!
The guests proceeded to Mercato Metropolitano, to view the incredible collection of photographs taken by LCC students, as part of the competition 'Interpretation of SE1'. There was a fantastic vibe at Mercato, with delicious food and drinks being served too, the ice-cream was my personal favourite. The evening ended on a high, as awards were received and prizes won, including a £4,000 bike!!
Thank you to all that were part of the evening and those that put it together, it was a fantastic event, enjoyed by all.
From Friday 15th to Sunday 17th September, Two Fifty One was the lead sponsor of Mercato Metropolitano's Sustainability Weekend. It was a pleasure to be affiliated with the event, especially as we have worked hard, to ensure we are both environmentally and socially sustainable. The weekend was brilliant, with the Disco Soup kicking it off to a fantastic start and plenty of delicious sustainable produce across the weekend. It is important to remember the community you are involved in and the environment we live in, and we are very proud that our building has helped the community and respected the environment.
On Friday 15th September food waste campaigners and a locally run community group Disco Soup are using surplus food to create a delicious soup to serve to their guests!
This sustainable event is part of London's Urban Food Fortnight, as London showcase's the best of the food on offer in it's capital! The sustainable food weekend held at Elephant and Castle's greatest attraction, Mercato Metropolitano, from Friday 15th to Sunday 17th September. You will also spot us with a stand too!
