Several Community days were held at Bryant Street, Chatham, as part of Groundwork Kent & Medway's project to improve the living environment for the residents of three tower blocks and surrounding houses on the estate.

The project involved community consultation and participation all of the way through, working closely with mhs homes and the Prospect Row Community Centre. 

The work was funded by mhs homes, the John Ellerman Foundation, Groundwork UK and Groundwork Kent & Medway and has involved the painting of hop-scotch and snakes and ladders games on the ground, the planting of bulbs, and the painting of the many grey concrete bollards, which will all help to brighten up the estate and make it a more enjoyable place to live. Benches have been brought in to form social areas and planters have been introduced and painted by the young people on the estate with their own designs.

The community days were well attended by residents of all ages. Davey Northcott, Landscape Assistant at Groundwork  said, "This project has made a real difference to the appearance of the estate and has made the area a lot pleasanter. The community days have been a great success and everyone has really enjoyed them. There is a real sense of community here, which must continue to be nurtured through more events such as these."
