Event - Maintenance of church buildings meeting
Information and discussion about two proposed maintenance schemes
We are currently exploring two church building maintenance schemes to see if there’s interest in establishing in our Diocese. We would like you to be part of the discussion. The maintenance schemes are:
1. MaintenanceBooker- an online system to book a contractor for regular maintenance jobs such as clearing gutters, tree surveys and surgery, lightning conductor checks and potentially other work.
Established by the National Churches Trust (NCT), this has already been piloted in Yorkshire. We are exploring the feasibility of establishing a North West scheme in conjunction with neighbouring Dioceses. For more information see http://www.maintenancebooker.org.uk/
2. Maintenance Co-operative- setting up small clusters of churches that can support one another with maintenance issues, either with practical tasks and/or sharing knowledge and encouragement, possibly encouraging additional community volunteers to be part of the group. This initiative has been established by the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB) but is relevant to all types/ages of church buildings. For more information see http://www.spabmcp.org.uk/
If you would like to find out more and share your thoughts about what would be of benefit to our Diocese, please book to attend this meeting. The results of the meeting will be shared with the archdeacons, who will be making the final decision.
