Staff from our project partners Caring for God's Acre will lead us through the process of how to manage your churchyard to improve its biodiversity (and save you money on grass cutting).
Come and join us at St George’s Church, Tallis Street, Cwmparc to find out how to survey your place of worship and spot maintenance issues before they lead to expensive repairs. We will give you practical, technical information on what to observe. Free
This for those of you based in the North-East (although if you are willing to travel, then everyone). Historic England is offering a FREE training day on all aspects of managing a listed place of worship in Newcastle on 3rd November.
Over the summer, investigations by various experts have been studying the collection of medieval sculpture in St Cuthbert’s, Wells. To celebrate what has been found, they are holding a one day seminar seminar to share the findings on 6th December.

Not in one of our regions?
You can still get involved! We can’t have a Regional Support Officer dedicated to every region, but that hasn’t stopped the Maintenance Co-operative movement from spreading. Already local volunteers are taking the initiative to start their own co-operatives, supported by our online resources and a little help from our team over the phone. In some cases we can even help find local trainers to help you to get started. If you are interested in starting a Maintenance Co-op we would love to hear form you, we will do everything that we can to help. Please contact us for more information and to tell us about your plans.
