The Maintenance Booker online tool has been developed by the National Churches Trust and with funding from the Pilgrim Trust. Following a successful pilot in Yorkshire, Gloucestershire churches will be able to register and use it from 1st September. Registered users will be able to access contact details and request quotes from local contractors, pre-vetted by the NCT team, initially for gutter clearance and lightning protection.
Next year we are expecting to have a wider offer, which will include tree surgery and asbestos management. Micro-grants will be available to help PCCs pay the cost of the gutter clearance service. For more and to register go to: www.maintenancebooker.org.uk
If you have any questions please contact the National Churches Trust or Gloucester DAC/Church Buildings Team.
