Our preparations for the Hope Challenge started in earnest this weekend. Well, actually, they started in Surrey as we undertook the first of our training walks prior to the 20km (13 mile) trek we'll face in July.
Whathouse.co.uk is teaming up with its sister publication Show House as media sponsors of the Hope Challenge 2013, a charity event taking place in July to raise money for Habitat for Humanity, which builds or renovates property for the poorest people in the UK and many countries overseas.
Since its inception in 1976, the charity has helped over 3million people by building, renovating and repairing homes. The event will raise enough funds to house dozens more families in need of basic habitable and safe homes, something that most of us can take for granted.
Globespan Media, publishers of Show House magazine and www.whathouse.co.uk, has an unprecedented six nominations in the LSL Property Press Awards, recognising the very best in UK property journalism.
What House? news editor Marc Da Silva has been shortlisted as a finalist for the LSL Property Press Awards, which is designed specifically to acknowledge and celebrate the outstanding achievements of property journalists from across the UK.
Marc has been nominated as one of five candidates for the International Property Journalist of the Year 2011 award, sponsored by Aviva.
While everybody talks about the eco homes of tomorrow, some new home builders are getting on with constructing them today. Here is a selection hoping to set new standards of sustainability.
Graylingwell Park, the UK's largest carbon-neutral development, will achieve Level 6 (zero carbon) Code for Sustainable Homes, with new homes in the early phases reaching level 4.
