Here at Red Kite, we're passionate about building thriving communities and improving the land we own, so we have a dedicated fund available to spend on neighbourhood and environmental improvements.

Last week, we joined forces with Chiltern Rangers once again to transform another one of our communal areas.

We worked with families and residents from Shiplake House to develop a wildlife-friendly allotment with raised beds, planters, compost bins and bird boxes. Residents were able to get stuck in with painting and planting, and the sun even came out to say hello!

One Shiplake House tenant who came down to help out said, "I think this is great, my neighbour and I really wanted something to happen with this area, so we are really pleased. We've been planting fruit and veg with our little ones today and it's a great chance to teach them all about the environment and growing your own food."

This project was funded by our Environmental Improvement Group (EIG) and will make a huge difference to the area.
