This afternoon session for the Heart of Eden Maintenance Co-operative is a practical workshop to help you write a maintenance plan for your place of worship.
The session will be led by James Innerdale, the Technical Officer for Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings' Maintenance Co-operatives Project. You'll need to bring your baseline condition survey if you've done one or your most recent building inspection or Quinquennial Inspection report and we'll provide a template for your maintenance plan. Bring your laptop or notepad if you'd like to type up your plan during the workshop - using Excel and/or Word programmes.
The event is free, with tea and coffee from 1.15pm, and runs from 1.30 to 4.15pm on Monday 10 October at Sands Methodist Church, Appleby.

When & Where
SPAB Maintenance Co-operatives Project
The Maintenance Co-operatives Project is a ground-breaking initiative from the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB) to support and train volunteers who maintain places of worship of all kinds, and prevent our faith buildings from falling into disrepair. The project is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, runs until March 2017 and is working in five areas across England: Cumbria, the North East, Lincolnshire, Herefordshire & Worcestershire, and the South West. In each area we run free events tailored to the needs of local volunteers and their buildings, as well as an annual conference.
Every event that we run is free of charge - we ask only that you register so we know how much tea and cake to order. You can see what we are up to on our website and register for our events here, all our events are free.
If you have any general enquiries about the project, please contact Sheila Christie, the Project Administrator, on email@example.com or 0207 456 0917.
