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 1 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.
