It’s true, World Friendship Day is actually a thing that is celebrated across the globe and even the hashtag is trending on Twitter now. But what is this day all about? Maybe you text your best mate and thank them for being your friend – who knows! But what we do know is that friendship is something that should be celebrated and here’s why we think it's important at Tipi.
From rooftop yoga, supper clubs and paint & prosecco evenings, all of these free resident events are held from the comfort of our social spaces located across our buildings and are perfect for socialising, meeting new people and getting to know your neighbours. Who knows, you might end up becoming best friends with these people? Which is exactly what happened to this group of six Tipi residents.
Meet the residents!
Lee and Mick moved into Dakota on February 2018, after relocating to the UK from Australia when Lee got a job as a paramedic in London. They found Tipi by chance when wandering past our office one day. When they realised there was zero deposits/fees and saw the high-spec of the apartments available, it was a no brainer for them!
Ciara and Daniel had been living at home before moving into Tipi together in 2016. Ciara had just begun her teaching career and Daniel was juggling a demanding full-time job and an evening degree. The hassle-free lifestyle and on-site social scene instantly appealed to them and they haven’t looked back since.
Tim and Conor also became Tipi residents in 2016, having rented in the Wembley area since 2005 and thoroughly enjoy their front-row seats watching the incredible regeneration of Wembley Park within the comfort of their very own Tipi home, as well as the added perks exclusive to Tipi residents, including tickets to The SSE Arena, Wembley & Wembley Stadium concerts.

How it all began
Tim and Conor had met Dan and Ciara a few times at Tipi social events, then got chatting properly at the opening of Black Sheep, a local independent coffee and cocktail lounge. Tim met Mick at one of the Tipi resident events and he and Conor began catching up with Mick and Lee often with the four of them first meeting up at Tipi's Eurovision event. Next thing you know, all three couples began hanging out together and quickly became good friends. If they are not enjoying the free Tipi resident events, you can usually find the gang grabbing a bite to eat at Boxpark Wembley, catching a movie at Cineworld located in London Designer Outlet or hanging out with KT Tunstall at Wembley Park’s International Busking Day gig.
Is it just us, or do 6 friends living in the same apartment building, drinking coffee in a coffee shop and hanging out all the time ring a bell…?
Could it BE anymore similar?!
It’s the small things in life like having your friends close by (or even in your building) that makes all the difference when living in London.
Happy World Friendship Day!
