Our Facebook group is a forum for local news and information, communication between residents, recommendations, sharing and other fun things. It replaces the website forums, blog and local traders list, which are seldom used and, in the case of the latter, difficult to keep current and accurate. To join up go to facebook.com/groups/whitehallpark/ or click the Facebook icon at the top of this page.
Articles from What’s New that are time-expired but might still be of relevance can be found on the ARCHIVE page.
