Sat 25 March 2017, 09:30 – 16:00 GMT
An Introduction to Preventative Maintenance and the Co-operatives Project.
A free hands-on training day for community members, members of places of worship of all faiths (with buildings of all ages and sizes), and people interested in hearing about volunteering. Delivered by the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB).
This is a free hands-on training day for anyone who would like to find out about preventative maintenance and how it can help them to avoid costly building repairs.
• interested in the day-to-day maintenance of your place of worship (of any faith) or other building?
• interested in learning how you can help to keep a building in good condition, spot possible dangers, and quickly identify problems to prevent them getting worse?
• interested in upkeep and maintenance of local buildings, or in learning how to carry out a building condition survey?
• of any or no faith and just fancy seeing what it's all about, or want to hear about opportunities to get involved or volunteer?
Come and learn the basics of 'Preventative Maintenance', how to recognise important maintenance issues and how to prioritise your maintenance and upkeep activities. Find out more about the Maintenance Co-operatives Project, a possible Maintenance Co-operative for Nottingham, and how it can help you look after your place of worship.
The day is for anybody interested in finding out about the role that everyone can play in the maintenance and upkeep of their building, or interested in hearing more about volunteering.

The day begins with an Introduction to Maintenance and our ’Baseline Condition Survey’, followed by a hands-on survey of Lenton's Holy Trinity church. No building knowledge or experience at all is needed (although any experience or skills that you bring will be very useful) – the survey is very much about looking and recording what you see and learning what to look for in terms of maintenance issues. You’ll take away the skills to undertake a building condition survey of your own.
For members of places of worship, we’ll also look at what you could get out of being part of a Maintenance Co-operative, and how a local Maintenance Co-operative might function.
There will also be plenty of opportunities for you to network and exchange information and lessons learnt about caring for your buildings.
Who’s it for?
Anyone who would like to find out about preventative maintenance and how it can help avoid costly building repairs at their place of worship.
