Play Parks and Community Projects Manager Rosie Brown explains what MODern Housing Solutions (MHS)  has been working on outside its usual maintenance tasks… 


MANY of you reading this will think of MHS as a maintenance company; the organisation that fixes things in your homes.

The truth is we don’t just repair, maintain and upgrade your family’s property; we give back into the military community through our charitable and countrywide community project programme.

MHS has been involved in more than 40 projects to date, including the provision of a much needed self-contained flat for injured Service personnel and their families – complete with a mobile play system for visiting children – at SSAFA’s Norton House.

Among the other charitable schemes we’ve helped with is a new war memorial and remembrance garden for all those who have fallen in the service of their country whilst based in Chivenor.

We also joined forces with a number of Oxfordshire agencies and staff to rejuvenate a beautiful copse at RAF Brize Norton (pictured above).

The wood had become overgrown and used as a dumping ground but is now a wonderful natural play space for children.

If you have an idea for how to improve your community and want some help in getting an initiative off the ground, contact me at or call 07841 967842.

MHS can help in a number of ways; by simply getting boots on the ground, through fundraising and by helping you with the planning. We look at all suggestions and advise on where we can be of assistance.
