An Ode to the Magdalen Estate

try penning your own ode to the Magdalen EstateThis week we, the Magdalen Estate team, have been getting in touch with our creative side, and exploring different ways of expressing our love and appreciation for such a fantastic place. As part of this exercise, we came up with something of a masterpiece- an acrostic poem/series of statements all about our favourite area. We’re sure you’ll agree, it’s in a league of its own…
M is for magical, how Wandsworth Common changes with the seasons.
A is for Agreeable, and finding how friendly your Magdalen Estate neighbours really are.
G is for Grow your Own, as can be done on the local allotments.
D is for Dance-your-socks-off, at one of the live music nights that happen across Wandsworth any night of the week.
A is for Anything that you’d like to have your say on, we can help you do so in our blog.
L is for Links, to and from central London, as well as to other parts of the country.
E is for the Endurance that so many locals show, to help raise money for local charities.
N is for Night Owls, who can enjoy the range of evening-time places around the Magdalen Estate.
E is for Environment, and doing our bit around the Magdalen Estate to keep it green.
S is for Social, and getting involved in one of the many local community groups.
T is for Tasty restaurants and markets selling local produce, all within a stone’s throw of our favourite area.
A is for Always Up To Date with the latest news, courtesy of our blog.
T is for Teaching, and the wonderful choice of Wandsworth schools.
E is for Effortlessly-how we hope you’ll settle into our community.
If you’ve written a poem that you’d like to share with us, or would like more information about our Magdalen Estate property and services, please do get in touch and one of our friendly (and sensitive/romantic/artistically inclined) team will be on hand to take your call.
