Faith in Maintenance
Lack of maintenance is one of the key reasons why old buildings deteriorate.
Carrying out routine maintenance tasks on a regular basis helps to protect the fabric of our historic buildings and assures their survival for future generations to enjoy. Maintenance is also the most practical and economic form of building preservation.
By carrying out basic maintenance, the expense of major repairs can often be avoided and at the least postponed.
"Stave off decay by daily care." William Morris
Now that Spring is on its way (we hope) this seems like a good time to remind you that the SPAB is still able to offer Faith in Maintenance one-day training courses thanks to some part-funding that we received from English Heritage in 2012.
English Heritage have agreed to pay 60% of our running costs for each course so we can offer to deliver a Faith in Maintenance course at a cost to hosts of £500.
If you are interested in booking a slot in the programme please get in touch with us as soon as possible. We can probably fit in about 6 courses in 2013 and a further 8 in 2014 but we will have to operate on a first come, first served basis!
