Faith in Maintenance

The Jury has awarded this prize for the exemplary initiative of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB) in creating an inspection network for the maintenance of places of worship by volunteers, who have been specially trained on the free Faith in Maintenance courses, run by the SPAB. The monitoring and care for these buildings by committed volunteers plays a crucial role in the conservation of old places of worship and is an inspirational model for many similar projects where, for various reasons, it is not possible for maintenance to be conducted by professionals.
