Residential Land sponsored team win the league

Residential Land are extremely proud of our sponsored youth football team Whetstone Wanderers under 12 Cougars who have just won the ‘White division’ title in the Watford Friendly league.

After a long, hard season, much of which was played on muddy pitches due to the winter weather, our team came out as Champions with a 5 point gap over second place.

This makes it 3 titles in a row for the Cougars and puts them in to the top league for their age group as they move to 11 a side.

Stuart Birke our Corporate Lettings Manager whose Son Grant has played in the team since he was 7 years old (6th from the left No2) commented “ it’s been a hard season and a few worrying moments along the way but they did us proud in the end.”

The Cougars almost succeeded in being double champions this season, but unfortunately narrowly missed out in the final of the Challenge Cup.

So a big congratulations to all our boys, the management and everyone connected with the Cougars.

Who’s cooking dinner in aid of Leuka Research 2014



On 10th March Residential Land attended the “Who’s Cooking Dinner” charity auction at the Four Seasons Hotel at Park Lane in aid of Leuka, a charity raising money to create a better future for patients with leukaemia. “Who’s Cooking Dinner” was founded in 1999 by Peter Gordon and Chris Corbin and raises money for treatment and research, specifically for the specialist leukaemia centre at Hammersmith Hospital, one of the world’s leading units for haematology.

On the evening, twenty top London chefs including Rainer Becker of Zuma, Richard Corrigan of Corrigans Mayafair, Clare Smyth of Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, Ashley Palmer-Watts of Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, Mark Edwards of Nobu and Jason Atherton of Pollen Street Social came together to cook dinner for 200 diners. There were 20 tables with each chef creating their own four course meal for one table of 10. Each table was served by the restaurants maître d’ and wine waiter and after the meal each table had the chance to meet their chef.

The evening was a huge success and ended with an exceptional “auction of chefs”, where diners had the opportunity to bid for one of the culinary stars to cook dinner in their own home. Residential Land successfully bid for Rainer Becker of Zuma to cook a private meal for 10 people.
