Housebuilder Miller Homes is encouraging new home owners in Winchburgh to welcome wildlife into their gardens and communities after joining forces with the RSPB in a new initiative.
Purchasers at the town’s Glendevon Gate development will receive a garden bird nest box along with a booklet of helpful hints and tips on how to encourage bio-diversity by making their gardens a place where birds and nature’s other creatures can thrive.
According to the RSPB, which is currently running a campaign called ‘Giving Nature a Home’, wildlife and natural places are under a great deal of pressure and as such are in increasing danger of being damaged or lost completely.
Anne Marie Britton, sales and marketing director at Miller Homes Scotland, said: ‘‘We are delighted to be collaborating with the RSPB on this initiative because sustainability is something we take very seriously.
‘‘One of the very simple steps we can take is to encourage bio-diversity in the communities we are creating, and we hope that the families moving into our homes will enjoy using the nest box to give nature a home in their gardens.”
