Volunteers from one of Britain's biggest energy suppliers have helped give a picturesque village an eco-makeover.
The workers, who are all employed at npower's Swindon office, spent the day at the National Trust village of Coleshill in Oxfordshire.
As well as helping residents fit loft insulation so as to enable them to benefit from cheap energy bills while simultaneously reducing the size of their carbon footprints, the team also planted a community orchard and helped paint a World War II guard house which is set to be re-opened to the public later this summer.
Welcoming the help, Jo Trussler, who works as the National Trust's low carbon village coordinator, stated that it was "fantastic" to receive the help of the energy supplier.
"We've been working with npower in Coleshill for over a year now, so it's great to see the volunteers support the work that we've been doing here," she said.
Earlier in the month, npower's latest business energy index revealed that six in ten UK firms consider their power supply to be their primary business risk.
