Faith In Maintenance FREE Workshops - 12th October 2019 and 21st March 2020
"Stave off decay by daily care." - William Morris
Maintenance might not be the most glamorous side of managing historic places of worship, but it can make all the difference. A little time spent on a basic building 'MOT' can save a great deal of money at a later date, but where do you start and what should you do? This FREE workshop will give many of the answers with professional advice and practical sessions.
Faith in Maintenance is an award-winning course from SPAB (the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings) and thanks to support from National Lottery Players, we are delighted to be offering it to parishes and organisations in the Diocese of Ely.
This is a fantastic opportunity to develop your skills and meet other people from across the Diocese. This workshop is open to anyone looking after an historic place of worship as long as the buildings falls within the boundaries of the Diocese of Ely. It is open to all faiths and organisations. Light refreshments will be provided throughout the day, but we kindly ask that you bring a packed lunch. Places are limited so we ask that no more than two people per parish or organisation attend. There are two opportunities to attend this workshop - booking is open for both:
