Nottinghamshire Historic Churches Trust is pleased to say that it has been given a grant from Allchurches Trust to award on their behalf to churches for the installation of roof alarms. In the light of the ongoing spate of lead theft from churches in the Diocese it would seem prudent to install a roof alarm where possible, prevention being better than cure. Allchurches Trust offer £1,000 per church, and an application could also be considered for an additional grant from NHCT to cover associated installation and repair work. The grants will be offered on the basis that the alarm contractor is recommended by the church’s insurers, and that all the usual permissions are in place such as faculties. An agreement must be made for the church to maintain the alarm system for a minimum of five years from installation. For further information and help, please contact NHCT’s Grants Administrator, Margaret Lowe, on 07757 800 919 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enquiries and requests for hard copy (paper) grant application forms and supporting information may be made to the Grants Administrator:
