Free lunch and a fun day out in York

Bookings are now open for our first National Conference, which is being held in York on Friday the 21st of November, and it would be great to see some Lincolnshire people there!

Open to volunteers who look after places of worship, the day will feature expert speakers, maintenance surgeries and fascinating York walking tours.  This will be a great opportunity to have your maintenance questions answered and meet people from across the country who give their time to caring for their local place of worship.

This event is free to attend, and will include lunch, tea and coffee, followed by a drinks/afternoon tea reception in a pub close by. You will get a free copy of the Good Maintenance Guide, a Maintenance Calendar and a copy of the English Heritage booklet on Caring for Places of Worship with your delegate pack on the day.

I’ve attached a poster, and the application form for a travel bursary for anyone who might need it (these are limited though, so if you need to apply, please do so ASAP).

Full details of the day and how to book can be found here:

There are also still places on the Repair Projects workshop that I have organised jointly with the Lincolnshire Churches Trust and the Church Buildings Team at Lincoln Diocese, which will run through all stages of a repair project, from carrying out a condition survey and identifying issues in your Quinquennial Inspection, to applying for faculty and making grant applications.
