News - John Betjeman award
The first John Betjeman Award in Ireland recognises sensitive external stonework conservation.
Our award for excellence in conservation at places of worship of all denominations and faiths drew a range of impressive entries in the England & Wales category. We were especially pleased to see the United Reformed Church, and Methodist buildings, represented this year.
To celebrate 30 years of the award, the competition was extended for entries from the whole of the UK and Ireland
