Other initiatives included:
- Donations to a local hospice and raising money for Red Nose Day
- Senior contracts manager attended the town centre network meeting discussing local business work possibilities
- The company is sponsoring Easter Market and spring event at Rokeby School
- The rent and all the bills of art studio adjacent to the site are paid by John Sisk & Son
- London Fire Brigade has offered to use the site as a training tool for site emergencies
- Painting the fences of St Lukes School and rebuilding flowerbeds as part of Sustainability Week
