    Did you know that hedgehog numbers have fallen by 30 percent in just over 10 years and they are disappearing from the parks and gardens of Britain at an alarming rate. This decline is likely caused by the loss and degradation of habitats due to pressures such as development or agricultural and climate change.

    Helping hedgehogs is not as difficult as you may think and there are lots of small changes we can all make that will combine to have a huge positive effect…..

    • Link your garden with your neighbours
    • Build a hedgehog home
    • Create a wildlife area in your garden
    • Put out food & water
    • Pick up litter
    • Stop using chemicals
    • Check before strimming
    • Make your pond safe with a ramp


    GIVE A HEDGEHOG A HOME

    To help the hedgehog population and our important eco systems, ENGIE would like to encourage everyone to lend a helping hand by donating free hedgehog homes to local residents, schools and charities.

    If you would like to receive a free igloo hedgehog house for your garden like pictured below, please contact Vicky for more details

  • Donating to the local Food Bank - Faversham

    Members of the Cooks Lane project including the ENGIE team, Sanctuary Homes and various subcontractors, all came together to donate food and toiletries to the local food bank in Faversham.

    It is difficult to think that anyone in our community should have to face going hungry, which is why the Swale Food Bank provides food and support to local people who are referred to them in crisis. They are part of a nationwide network of food banks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.

    Due to COVID and social distancing, the usual churches that accept the donations are not currently allowing people to go there, so instead they have set up drop off points within local supermarkets to allow people to donate which will then be collected by the charity.

    Over the last few months our site teams have been working hard to deliver our first handovers consisting of 17 units which include 4 show units, complete with spacious gardens parking and surrounded by public open space. The first of the units will be completed by October 2020.

    In the forth coming months Engie will be carrying out essential highways works to Cooks Lane, to form permanent ingress and access into the new development this work is critical to the above handovers and therefore Cooks lane will need to be temporary closed off to allow these works to take place and progress in the shortest amount of time to minimalize disruption to local residents.

    The programmed works is forecasted to run for 8 weeks and notice will be issued by Kent, County, Council.

  • £500 Donation to One Big Family

    Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, people are unable to work in their normal working environments, and worst case are being made redundant from their jobs. This is resulting in a high increase of people losing their homes and becoming homeless.

    ENGIE wanted to help by donating food, drinks and toiletries that would go to families that need it the most during this difficult time. However due to social distancing and travel restrictions, it became difficult to deliver donations to the chosen charity called One Big Family.

    As an alternative, ENGIE donated a cash donation of £500 directly to the charity which can be used by them to purchase essential items for the local food banks and soup kitchens that they provide.

    "With grateful thanks for your donation - the money will be used to fund home starter packs for people who are newly accommodated. Liz at One Big Family".

    Due to COVID-19, face to face scouting had to come to an end in March and thanks to donations from parents and virtual fund-raising events, they had managed to keep the Scouts Hut open during this difficult time.

    However, due to a lack of funds the Scout Leaders put out an appeal asking local businesses and supporters for donations of specific materials and items that will help them to comply with COVID-19 regulations and allow them to reopen their doors in September.

    ENGIE and Gallagher at Cooks Lane answered to their appeal and were able to donate a number of items from the Scout’s wish list.

    ENGIE donated a total of £100 worth of cleaning and sanitising items, and Gallagher donated a total of 12 metal barriers that will be used to create one-way systems and meeting points for when the 60+ young people return back to the Scout’s Hut.

    Since our return in May that followed our site shut down due to COVID-19, we have slowly increased the staff numbers on site and are now starting to make good progress across the project.

    The first hand over is due late August and we are currently installing kitchens and carrying out internal finishes.

    The groundworks are ongoing and we are planning to carry out the construction of a new entrance at Cooks Lane in August.

    We have now started to make progress on the smaller site of Cooks Lane and plan to start erection of the timber frame in July.

    We have arranged for a road sweeper to attend site weekly to help minimise the quantity of dust generated from site due to the heat.
