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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 0207 456 0917.
